"Jaudon is a lifesaver. She helped me solve lactation problems in the moment, calmly and with smart suggestions and solutions. Jaudon was also very quick to respond when I had painful breastfeeding issues develop. She's been a critical guide during my breastfeeding journey. I'd recommend her to any new moms looking for lactation support." - Jessica S.
"When I first met Jaudon, I was 1 week post partum and My baby was not latching at all. I was pumping and bottle feeding him which was ofcourse very tedious for me. One session with her and everything changed, she helped my baby latch properly and I am successfully breastfeeding my son until now. She also educated me on the basics of breastfeeding which I thought was very helpful. She will also do follow ups with you on phone to make sure everything is going well with the baby. Jaudon has been extremely helpful in resolving all my breastfeeding related issues including improper latch, nipple soreness , engorgement and pain. I definitely recommend her!!" - Dwitiya S.
"To all new moms trying to breastfeed, believe me, I know the struggle and what a challenge breastfeeding can be. I also know that for some it comes easily, but if you’re like me then you are not one of those moms! I kept giving my self small goals because I knew I wanted to give breastfeeding my best shot. I truly could not have succeeded for the past 3 months without the help of Jaudon at Matrescence Lactation. She is the best help you can get, and I was lucky enough to be able to utilize her unique skills by phone all the way to Louisiana! She helped me through the hard times when I felt like a failure as this 'natural' process didn’t always seem so natural at all. She helped me understand what I needed to do to help my baby latch, increase milk production, and make me feel like I wasn’t the only one that struggled with breastfeeding. Jaudon is the positive reinforcement that all moms need, new and old. If you need guidance, Jaudon is the best out there. Good luck to all of the moms out there and remember, if you need help don’t suffer in silence when Jaudon is just a phone call away!" - Anne B.
“One of the first things new moms tell you when you announce a pregnancy is how critical it is to meet with a lactation consultant. I couldn't agree more now that my little one is here. Jaudon made two house calls immediately after we brought baby home. Her guidance was invaluable, saving me from prolonged pain due to a bad latch. She was so knowledgeable, kind, and generous with her time. She answered our questions and followed up via email after each visit. I can't recommend her highly enough!!” - Katy R.
"Jaudon is wonderful! In the beginning, I had so many questions about Ciara's latch and her weight gain. I wondered if I was doing anything right! Jaudon was supportive and reassuring. She took the time to answer all of my questions. She made sure that I had the knowledge I needed to continue breastfeeding, even when it was difficult. I was able to breastfeed my daughter until just after her 2nd birthday (when we decided to wean and try for baby #3). Not only is she intelligent and helpful, she is also patient, personable, and kind. She will not judge, but give words of encouragement and advice from her education, training, and years of personal experience." -Rebecca P.
"Being a first time mom, I had no clue what I was getting into; however, I KNEW I wanted to breastfeed for as long as possible. Breastfeeding did not come with the ease that many experience for me and my little and it was a battle we fought everyday. The first 48 hours in particular were incredibly difficult, but Jaudon's presence, knowledge, spirit, and accessible attitude helped guide us through! Our next battle came when I returned to work. Unfortunately, I did not respond to the pump and I was desperate to continue breastfeeding! I tried everything under the sun and nothing was helping. Jaudon's patience and kindness reminded me that I wasn't a failure for my daughter being partially breastfed and supplementing with formula. Every time I wanted to give up, I heard her encouragement to find the path that is right for me and my daughter. At 9 months, I decided to stop pumping at work. I was literally squeezing out a total of 2 oz of milk for all four 30 minute pumping sessions! My mom's guilt was setting in and I thought "This is it. This is the end. I am being selfish and my daughter won't receive the benefits of breastfeeding through the first year of life." Jaudon was there again, with empathy and unwavering support. She told me again and again that Josephine and I will find our path and this won't be the end. Sure enough, fast forward to 16 months and she is still breastfeeding on demand and our bond is growing every day. Without Jaudon, I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that Josephine and I would not have succeeded." - Morgan S.
"My husband and I hired Jaudon for an in-home consultation, which I would recommend if possible. That way, she can see your home setup, find places for you to feed, suggest props (pillows, etc.) you already have, etc. She'll get you and your baby all set up in your own home. But even if you visit her somewhere offsite, Jaudon is a fountain of wisdom when it comes to feeding. She helped us not only find the best physical positions to feed in, she also helped my husband and I get our baby back to birth weight when he had fallen behind, and consistently checked in on us to answer any follow-up questions and make sure everything was going OK. If breast-feeding is a priority for you, I'd highly recommend her services." - Jenny B.
"She is great! She is very attentive and willing to help trouble shoot. I would recommend her for sure!!" - Margo A.
“I met with Jaudon shortly before returning to work because I wanted help preparing for pumping at work. She was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful, giving me the information and confidence I needed to take on pumping. It's been a much better experience and more successful than I expected. I really appreciated her following up with me after I returned to work, at a time that was convenient for me, and answering all my questions now that I was living the pumping at work life, including advice on working through feeding issues with our daycare.
Also, she was great with our dog, who can be a little friendly and eager with strangers!” - Sara K.
“After delivering my son, he had dropped more than 10 percent of his birth weight and I was very stressed regarding breast feeding. Jaudon came for an in house consultation the same day I reached out and was an immense source of knowledge, support and reassurance. She openly discussed our concerns with both myself and my husband. She is incredibly friendly and makes you feel at ease during a sensitive and emotional time. Being a first time mom, breast feeding has been a new and challenging journey but one which has been very rewarding. Highly recommend!” - Caroline K.
“I met Jaudon for a drop-in lactation station and then at a breastfeeding support group. I needed reassurance and additional tips on breastfeeding. She is absolutely great and knowledgeable. Jaudon listened and answered all my questions throughly and also gave me additional information and tips on how to make my breastfeeding experience better for myself and baby. The breastfeeding support group was very fun because I got to meet other mamas and Jaudon always had raffles with cool prizes. I highly recommend Jaudon either for private consultation or the really fun support groups!” - Georgeta V.
“Jaudon is amazing. I was really overwhelmed when I reached out to her and I was nervous it was going to take forever to hear back from someone - but not with Jaudon. She was immediately available to chat - and I was able to set up an in-home consultation the next day! She made me feel so comfortable and reassured me when things were going well, and offered suggestions and solutions when something wasn't quite right. She was available for questions via email after the consultation as well. If I had to describe Jaudon it would be that she's personable, reassuring, and accessible.” - Courtney H.
“Jaudon restored my confidence in breastfeeding when I hit a super low. I was nursing, pumping, and bottle feeding my baby at every feeding, which was exhausting and unsustainable. I was afraid our baby wasn't latching correctly, afraid of a potential tongue tie, and afraid I was going to end up exclusively pumping or killing my milk supply. Jaudon was super thorough, helped with latch, weighted feeds, and helped us wean off supplements. I couldn't see the light at the end of the tunnel, but Jaudon did and I am so thankful we are confidently enjoying our breastfeeding relationship, all thanks to her. I highly recommend!” - Cristina V.
“Jaudon has been a tremendous resource to me and my family. We had her join us for an in-home consultation when our baby was about two months old. She offered a great deal of reinforcement and encouragement, which I so appreciated. She also provided us with many practical tips, particularly on how to feel more comfortable nursing in public and how to build up a stash for going back to work. She is extremely professional and responsive, and I would highly recommend any parent reach out to her.” - Emily M.
“Jaudon came for an in home consultation as I was thinking about the transition back to work. At our first meeting, my daughter latched on well and had a good weighted feed. After her 1 month appointment, I started worrying that maybe my supply was not enough as she has always been a fussy baby and I was observing cues that perhaps she was not satisfied at the end of her feeds. I texted Jaudon, who was extremely responsive and we set up another consultation. This time, my daughter did not transfer as much milk during the weighted feed, and Jaudon was there for support and recommendations. She gave me emotional and mental reassurance at a time when I was doubting my abilities as a mother and provider for my daughter. She helped me focus on my own journey in breastfeeding and ignore the online reviews, blog entries and social media posts where it seemed that every other woman had a bountiful supply and responded to every galactalogue. With patience and time, I was able to build my supply back up and have been able to continue pump and breastfeed just enough for my daughter. And that's enough for me. I can't say enough great things about Jaudon. She is incredibly caring, attentive, and compassionate.” - Elaine S.
