  • Julie’s success stories speak for themselves. I’ve met countless women who have benefitted tremendously by Julie’s expertise and comfort. Many more have been helped through her wonderful presence on social media. I am just one of these women. At one point, my nipples were chapped and nearly bleeding. One visit from Julie turned things around. She’s amazing

  • Julie saved my breastfeeding relationship with my daughter and I couldn’t be more grateful. Six days in and I was ready to quit. Julie listened when others just told me to stick it out and that the pain was normal. Turns out my daughter was tongue and lip tied. Fourteen months later, we are still breastfeeding. Thanks for listening and caring Julie!

  • Julie has helped my daughter and I out tremendously! We are now nipple shield free and no pain when latching. We were struggling until we met with her several times. I HIGHLY recommend her! I felt so comfortable with her.
