Kind words from a Kind Mama

Highly recommend Kellie, she is magic! Kellie identified lip and tongue ties that were significantly impacting my babies feeds. Kellie supported me and bubs to seek appropriate treatment, and worked collaboratively with other professionals to ensure my baby received the care he needed. Kellie is a very passionate and dedicated IBCLC. She has educated and empowered me, which has made feeding my child easy and relaxed. Kellie has always worked towards my goals, and I now have so many tools and tricks to implement. I am truly grateful for Kellie's support throughout our feeding journey. LAURA. S
