Rated Five Stars by a Mom in Branford, CT on Oct. 20, 2009

Dana Schmidt has been an amazing source of support as well as information regarding breastfeeding and lactation. Even though she is a certified lactation consultant, she gives advice in an unbiased way making sure that what's best and comfortable for moms and their babies is the main focus. There is no question that I have asked that she didn't immediately know the answer to and I know that if she didn't know the answer, she'd find out quickly and never leave me wondering. She is professional and trustworthy and when it comes to such a personal experience with your baby, Dana provides the minimum amount of intervention necessary to achieve a maximum, healthy result. It's a relief to know that I can call her and she will always be there to lend an ear and there's no greater comfort to a new mom than that.

Dana is great! My girls and I have enjoyed the Wed Weigh-In meetups. Dana has a wealth of resources and tips. She also has moms who are willing to talk if you need another parent to talk to!

Dana is an great lactation consultant! She has a wealth of knowledge about breastfeeding and child-rearing, and she is so kind and encouraging. Her suggestions and guidance has been so helpful to me as I initially struggled with breastfeeding my first child. Her Wednesday Weigh-in group has also been such a source of encouragement and guidance to me. I would strongly recommend Breastfeeding Home Visit Services to any mom who needs help with breastfeeding, or would just like some guidance with their baby.
