My objective is to help no matter what a successful breastfeeding journey looks like for you and your family.

Mini Consult

Do you have a few questions about your baby and breastfeeding that don’t necessarily warrant a full 60-90 minute consultation? For those small issues or quick questions you may have, I offer a “mini-consult”. This 30 minute or less consult, I can answer any questions you may have about any topic that pertains to breastfeeding, pumping, back to work issues, weaning, etc. We can either chat by phone or virtually on your computer. If your issue is more complicated than a phone call and further evaluation is necessary, I will suggest we schedule a longer consultation. This mini-consult is for parents with questions that do not require a full assessment, but would like professional advice and assistance with breastfeeding.

Testimonials

{

I was an older mom who had my first daughter via IVF, so my doctor wasn’t sure I would be able to produce enough milk. She was born prematurely and was in the NICU for ten days. She was bottle-fed in the NICU while I pumped what I could so she had a hard time latching. Her doctors encouraged me to switch to formula exclusively but I was determined to breastfeed as much as I could…READ MORE

Words cannot begin to express how grateful I am for Dee. As a new mom, trying to figure out the mechanics of breastfeeding while watching my baby cry from hunger and continue to drop weight was not something I was prepared for. Dee was always accommodating to my needs and the needs of my newborn and if one technique did not work she knew exactly what to do next. She always made my son and me feel like we were a priority…READ MORE

The connection I had with Ms. Dee was beautiful. She was very patient and was just as excited as I was starting my Breastfeeding Journey. I never felt uncomfortable. She was always positive and made me feel good about every situation that came my way.  She was the only person who kept me in good spirits when everyone else told me to give up…READ MORE

As a new mom, I had a list of questions ready to ask when Dee arrived. By the end of our session when I went to look at my long list of questions there were only 3 questions left to ask because she answered them all on her own. My confidence in my breastfeeding journey increased immensely after our visit. If I run into any more issues I will not hesitate to schedule another appointment with Dee. I wish more people would take advantage of her services before giving up on breastfeedingREAD MORE

Dee, where do I begin? She is a superhero in our family! I met Dee when taking the breastfeeding class offered at the local hospital in 2018. I knew breastfeeding was something I was going to do, but I was leery of the process. Right away after delivery Dee was gently by my side coaching me on how to latch our tiny girl. I gained so much confidence with nursing my 5 lb 5 oz newborn. Nursing a tiny baby with low weight takes consistency…READ MORE

Working with Dee was a wonderful experience. I had a scheduled c section, so I set up an appointment with Dee 2 days after I returned home from the hospital and I’m so happy I did. She came to our house and worked with us in our own environment, providing solutions and help when we needed it most. We had several problems, including a tongue tie. I truly believe Dee’s expertise and experience saved our breastfeeding journeyREAD MORE

Haley Miller

I had my daughter in June 2020. Here we are 18 months later and still breastfeeding! It all started with Dee taking the time to help me learn to help my daughter latch and always reminding me I was producing enough for her. Dee is so patient and was always willing to answer my questions. I’m so thankful for her help in those first few weeks, from help in the hospital to weighted feeds to several phone consults. If it weren’t for her I probably would have quit in those first few days, but her support helped me persevere and I’m so thankful I did. READ MORE

Dee Miller. Auntie Dee to our little girl. I honestly would not have survived my first 3 months of mommy-hood without Dee. Dee not only took care of our baby; she also took care of me. EVERY session (without exaggeration), I’d leave feeling much better than when I came. For the brand new Mom’s, you know how much of a blessing that is. I looked forward to “Dee” time! Dee would see us every week for months as my LO was pretty strong willed, and she’d rather sleep than eat. She dropped as low as the 6th percentile in weight. With the help, guidance…READ MORE

Elisha Collins

I’m super thankful for Dee as she is a very essential part of my breastfeeding journey. After having an unplanned c-section and a traumatic birth experience, I was super worried about breastfeeding my little one as my milk has been very slow to come in. Dee provides very clear, concise, and thoughtful care that will cater towards you, your baby, and any unique situation that you may have. I left the hospital with thoughts of giving up but because of Dee, I am committed to making progress and continuing my breastfeeding journeyREAD MORE

Melita Thompson

When I first called Dee, I was sobbing, holding my premature son who was also sobbing. I had just had a meltdown with my husband, saying “I just want to make it to 12 months!” Translation: I wanted to breastfeed our baby for a year. Thanks to Dee, this is now an inside joke between my husband and me. When I nursed our son for the last time at 38 months, my husband chuckled and said, “You just wanted to make it to 12 months.” We snuggled our thriving, happy…READ MORE
