I regret that I’m just now getting around to writing this, but I couldn’t call my breastfeeding journey successful until just recently. My baby is 3 months old, and I saw Jacqueline and her team when she was almost 2 weeks old. I had so many struggles in the early days, and everyone at Holistic Lactation was so kind, positive, and supportive. They found my daughter’s tongue and lip ties and gave advice that saved our breastfeeding relationship. I thought I would never be able to exclusively breastfeed my daughter, but she has now been exclusively breastfed for about a month! I can’t thank the team at Holistic Lactation enough, and should I run into any issues down the road I will be back in a heartbeat.
My son was born in April of this year and had severe gas, digestive issues and colic like symptoms after every feeding along with a poor latch. At 8 weeks we decided enough was enough. We were referred to Jacqueline by our family chiropractor and called her right away. Jacqueline was able to make time to see us quickly and confirmed that our son had a lip and a tongue tie which we had suspected. She has expert knowledge and experience when it comes to lip and tongue ties and is great at explaining everything during her consultation. She helped us pre and post correction procedure with helpful exercises and other coping strategies. She goes above and beyond when it comes to lactation care... offering resources, referrals, and other support. She was honest and straight forward with us on things that were tough, but that we needed to hear and was willing to do whatever she could on her end to help us have a positive and successful breastfeeding experience. Today at almost 5 months, our son is doing so well with breastfeeding and he is happy, healthy and thriving. Thanks for all your help and support Jacqueline!
My entire breastfeeding journey has been improved since working with Jacqueline. I faced struggles due to my baby’s tongue and lip ties, poor latch, low weight gain, poor supply, gut health issues, and dietary struggles. With Jacqueline’s help I have been able to resolve all of these issues (some are still a work in progress!). Prior to working with Jacqueline I felt defeated and unsure if I could meet my goals with breastfeeding. Since working with her I feel confident that I actually can meet my goals and have a great breastfeeding relationship with my baby.

It’s safe to say that when I met Gina I was in a very difficult place with feeding my son. He was 4 months old, completely expressed breast milk fed with a total inability to latch, severe breast aversion bordering on hysteria and I had chronic breast pain caused by an undiagnosed ductal thrush infection. Previously he had fed intermittently with a silicone breast shield but that hadn’t been the case for over a month.
Since birth, my son had been labelled a “reluctant feeder” after an emergency forceps delivery left him with some residual jaw trauma. I had been supported in expressing and was managing to maintain him on breast milk via the bottle but with little or no quality of life for myself - attached to the pump constantly - and with severe breast pain.
I had seen multiple specialists and had multiple interventions including a lactation consultant in my area, the infant feeding team, tongue tie release, osteopath for my son, and my GP. Gina was recommended to me as a “Hail Mary” by my best friend. When we met I was incredibly low, feeding had become so traumatic for both of us. My vision of postpartum life was broken. My only goal was to be able to comfort my son by holding him against me, and if possible regain some “comfort feeding” sessions.
From our first meeting via zoom Gina was so loving and kind; and clearly incredibly experienced, knowledgeable. She listened to what we’d been through, and for the first time in 4 months I felt understood and heard. Funnily enough we never approached it from a “breast feeding” angle but instead focussed on regulating his emotional state (and mine) all with the aim to rebuild that special bond that we had lost. Never did Gina pressured me to feed in a certain way, and she never ever judged me. Every session was full of support and encouragement.
Gina and I worked together intensively. She shared key information, exercises and tips and within just a week of work my son had attempted to latch again. I began to allow myself to enjoy our feeding time, learning to appreciate both breast and bottle as a time to connect. For the first time ever I felt happy feeding him.
I feel overwhelmed writing this because I truly owe Gina so much, I am rejuvenated and restored. Never in my life had something so “natural” been so unnatural for me and to have someone to lean on and to direct me after such a long time of feeling very alone was invaluable. The changes she helped me make have drastically improved our experience of feeding.
I cannot recommend working with Gina enough, if you in a place where you feel hopeless be assured that she can provide love and care and a huge amount of experience and knowledge. With hard work progress can be made and it is possible to learn to love feeding your baby again, no matter which method you choose.
