The breastfeeding workshop was wonderfully informative and Alissa provides so much fantastic information in such a positive way!
Since our little girl arrived, Alissa’s continued support was absolutely outstanding! Alissa was on hand with such amazing advice and support. Without her, I wouldn’t be where I am today, 5 months into solely breastfeeding and loving it! I cannot even begin to express how much I appreciate everything she did for our family.

I immediately felt comforted by Alissa's friendly and professional manner. I was taken by her passion for breastfeeding and was fascinated by the little gems she shared when we met.
We decided to attend one of her breastfeeding workshops and we are so, so glad that we did. I have gone from hoping to breastfeed, to feeling fully confident that I will breastfeed my baby.
Honestly, if I hadn’t had met her I would probably not have thought to learn about breastfeeding prior to my baby’s arrival. I am so, so glad I did
