I was struggling with weight loss, poor energy levels, and I was starting to lose my breast milk. Since working with Kayla my energy and mood have gotten much better. I was significantly under eating before our work together. I have much more energy to be able to get through my long teaching days. I also significantly reduced my grazing habits. Now that I eat more balanced meals I don’t constantly feel hungry.

I was overwhelmed with where to start on my nutrition for fertility journey. I have also struggled with digestive issues and painful menstrual cycles for years. Kayla has been unique in her approach because she really wants to help me get to the root of what's causing my issues. Since working with Kayla I feel more confident and empowered when meal planning and choosing foods based on what she's taught me about nutrition and maintaining a balanced diet. I also feel much more confident that I'm getting the nutrients I need through both my diet and through the supplements that Kayla has helped me select. I also find that I'm motivated to eat cleaner, more balanced meals and stick with the dietary changes I'm making since Kayla is there to hold me accountable. My gut issues have significantly improved since we began working together and my menstrual pain is trending in the right direction.

I'm so thankful Kayla was my lactation consultant! She made me feel very comfortable and more confident with breastfeeding. I was impressed by her examination of my baby, her thorough notes, warm personality, and even follow up texts and check-ins with me. Kayla even helped me evaluate which bottles and pacifiers were right for us. With each visit she would weigh my baby before and after feeding to determine how many ounces she is getting at the breast. This was extremely helpful for introducing a bottle upon my return to work. I know without a doubt that I'll call Kayla when it's time for the next phase - introducing solids.

Kayla has been very supportive during my breastfeeding journey. My baby has food sensitivities. While doctors were advising me to switch to hypoallergenic formula, Kayla was very supportive in finding out what food groups were triggering my baby. She was also very helpful in giving me ideas of "safe" foods I could have, while also making sure I am getting the adequate nutrition.

Amazing lactation consultant! I scheduled Kayla to come to check my baby's latch for the first time when she was about 2 weeks. She discovered my baby's tongue and lip tie and referred me to a pediatric dentist, saving my breastfeeding journey. Since then we have had 2 follow-ups. I truly wouldn't still be breastfeeding if it wasn't for her. Thank you!

Kayla was a godsend when I was on the brink of giving up on breastfeeding 10 weeks into my son's life due to crippling clogged ducts and poor latching. Kayla came to our house for several sessions, evaluated our situation, and made recommendations and suggestions that allowed us to persist. Despite visiting lactation before leaving the hospital, Kayla was the one to notice the probable lip and tongue ties, which we were then able to address. She gave us suggestions on feeding, and the weighted feeds we did during the sessions gave me confidence and relief that my baby was indeed getting enough milk. I've told all the upcoming and new moms I know that proactively working with a registered lactation consultant like Kayla is the best thing you can do if you intend on breastfeeding, and my only regret is that I didn't find her sooner (and, as a bonus, lactation support is often covered by insurance! Who knew!). My son recently turned one, and thanks to Kayla (despite the challenges), we've passed the year mark.

Makes me more at ease and willing to do it with my third baby and hoping this helps with being less picky than my first two!

Kayla is such an amazing resource and extremely knowledgeable with babies and eating. Her online class was so helpful in learning how to do baby led weaning with ease and fun.
