I had a video consultation and “back to work” class with Christen. I had started pumping a couple of weeks before in order to get my daughter used to bottle feedings. My supply had dropped dramatically in those few weeks and Christen helped me fix the problem immediately! She set me up with a pumping schedule that I’ll be able to transfer to work and helped me feel good about the transition. My supply has doubled and it’s only been 3 days!
