Jennifer is AWESOME! She is friendly, non-judgemental, knowledgeable, supportive, kind, funny, and a baby whisperer! In just a couple hours she corrected by baby's poor latch and gave me lots of tools, education and resources to continue after she left. If you are a mama struggling with breastfeeding (or just need some friendly support), I highly recommend Jennifer at Hampton Roads Lactation.
Jenn was amazing!! She is so friendly and nurturing, plus extremely helpful. My breastfeeding journey was pretty much a lost cause when I met Jenn, and nothing I was doing was working for me. I was having the hardest time with my milk supply and was an emotional wreck because I desperately wanted to breastfeed my son. We brainstormed so many techniques and finally found a solution for me. I went from having to supplement about 95% to exclusively nursing within about a week and I am so grateful Jenn was there encouraging me and giving me tips even after my appointment. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is struggling with their breastfeeding journey!
Jennifer is an absolute lifesaver! She’s incredibly personable, charming, and knows her way around lactation! Even after my having nursed three other children successfully, she gave me some tips and tricks that worked wonders with my newborn this week. Cannot recommend her and her services highly enough!!
Jennifer saved me when I was going through one of the toughest times of my life. My baby had a very hard time latching and I was desperate for help. Jenn responded right away, came over the next day, and for the first time since I'd had my son I felt SAFE and like someone truly understood what I was going through. To say she is excellent at her job would be an understatement. She gave me excellent advice and I still check in with her periodically to give her updates on our progress. She is SO ENCOURAGING in a gentle, non-judgmental way. I think people are placed into your life when you truly need them...and Jenn was that person for me!
Kind, caring, compassionate, knowledgeable! Not particularly keen on having a stranger in my home (messy newborn stage!), Jennifer immediately put me at ease with her presence and demeanor. I couldn't have asked for a more positive and informative appointment.
Jenn is seriously so amazing! She has helped me and my son more than I could imagine! She’s so friendly and knowledgeable, and truly cares about her clients. She has answered and addressed all of my questions and concerns and then some, and I know I can reach out to her if I have more. I totally will be recommending her to any of my pregnant friends and new mamas!
Jenn is a lifesaver! I can't recommend her enough. I was really determined to breastfeed but it was so painful for me. Not only did Jenn make time to see me right away, she is extremely knowledgeable and was able to help me and my son fix our latch and keep breastfeeding! I think I might have quit if not for her. She is a true professional.
My LO was having problems gaining weight. She has special needs. I didnt realize how much I needed Jenn as much as my LO needed her. I needed reassurance that I was doing things right. Jenn was due to go on a family vacation, but once she knew how much we needed her help, she made time to fit us in! Not only did she come that day, but she made sure to give us the most information that fit our needs! Jenn has been going above and beyond with the follow up emails and info to truly make me feel like contacting her has been the best decision I've made since my LO was born! Now my LO is gaining weight and I could not be happier! if you feel like you need a little help or even alot, I highly recommend Jenn at HR lactation! Trust me, you will not regret it!
As a doula that serves the women in our community, Jenn is my number one recommendation for clients who need the support of an IBCLC in the Hampton Roads area. Jenn treats her clients with compassion and has the experience and passion needed to help women with a broad spectrum of nursing and lactation concerns. Jenn not only addresses the physical and anatomical issues, she also focuses on the emotional aspects of nursing issues and truly nurtures and supports her clients as they navigate the trials of newborn life along with lactation and feeding issues. Jenn is nothing short of an amazing IBCLC and I cannot recommend her or her services highly enough.
Jenn is a saint! As a birth doula she is the only IBCLC I recommend to my clients because I know they will be well cared for and get the best support! She is so encouraging and uplifting which is vital for breastfeeding! I will personally use her if we are ever blessed with another baby ❤️
