what other mamas say

"I’m so grateful to have found Paola - she has been incredible in helping me after I got mastitis. She did a full assessment of baby and to ensure he was latching correctly, helped me get rid of a stubborn milk bleb and gave me lots of great recommendations to help get my supply back. She is super knowledgeable, professional and has a very calming and warm presence. Can’t recommend her enough!"
