I feel so fortunate to have found Liz early in my parenting journey. Liz first helped me with my son 7 years ago when I was discharged from hospital with a baby who refused to latch and was quickly losing weight. Each feed time was stressful and filled with dread until my consultation with Liz. Without her support during those early and fragile days as a new mum, I would not have had the skills or confidence to persevere with breastfeeding.
When baby number 2 came along, I got in touch with Liz on the day she was born. Although breastfeeding came more easily the second time round, Liz's support and guidance from the onset meant that we set up the breastfeeding relationship in the best possible way.
By the time baby number 3 came along (a boy) I thought I had mastered the feeding process. I quickly learned that breastfeeding each child is unique and comes with unique challenges. I could not have imagined that my consultations with Liz would be just as important with my third child as they were with my first. Aside from our face to face sessions, Liz has been there to answer my many calls and text messages and has guided me through each stage of the newborn phase (and all the hiccups encountered at various stages) with each of my kids.
Her advice was always delivered with such care, professionalism and a plethora of wisdom on everything you need to know when it comes to caring for a newborn! I cannot recommend Liz highly enough for new (or even experienced) mums needing breastfeeding support. I know that I would not have been able to successfully breastfeed my three kids without her wonderful support and guidance.
Thank you Liz!
Liz is quite simply - The best!!
She has been a core support to me with the arrival of both my boys ... each with different needs and challenges. in both cases, Liz has had a great ability to combine her professional, knowledge, compassion, insight and common sense to the situation. She was also a key confidante at what is such an emotional, precious and life changing time.
On the practical side, Liz is relevant, responsive and reliable!
I could not have managed to breastfeed without her ongoing guidance and care!!!
I am so very grateful to Liz for her help with my little boy Felix. Her guidance was invaluable! I was close to giving up trying to breastfeed, as I had struggled with sore nipples, engorgement and a baby that was used to being given bottles in the special care nursery in hospital. I decided to call Liz and I am so glad I did. I went from feeling extremely distressed before our consultation to being able to breastfeed comfortably, and with so much more confidence after my session with Liz. In our session, I was able to establish effective breastfeeding practices - and it worked - Felix began attaching and feeding well, and began gaining more weight. Liz also showed me a baby wrap the Felix likes, and how to effectively express breast milk. I really appreciated getting clear advice that was so well explained - and it made all the difference.
Thank you so much Liz - you were really our saviour! Tamara Lowen
I have received excellent feedback from the mums and babies I have referred to Liz Price. She is a very experienced lactation consultant and midwife and has a very thorough and calming approach to mums who are finding breast feeding challenging.
