What others are saying...

Emma, mom of 2

"When I was pregnant with my first, I didn't know where to start with breastfeeding. I wanted to know EVERYTHING but Google was information overload and not helpful. Then I found Allison's course. It was just what I needed! The course covered the basics and had lots of information, but it was focused in one spot so I didn't have to search a bunch a different sources. I took the course at my own pace and referred back to it again and again! The most important thing to me was feeling like I could trust Allison as a lactation expert, and also a fellow mom. Because of Allison's help, I've felt successful in breastfeeding both of my babies!"

Melissa, YouTube subscriber

"I was SO unprepared when I decided I wanted to breastfeed my daughter. I came from a formula-feeding family and had no one to get that anecdotal experience from. I took some bad advice from someone who shouldn’t be a lactation counselor that ultimately discouraged me and left me feeling less than. I’ve found so much help and empowerment in your videos and now I know how to be prepared next time around whenever I have another baby. Thank you SO much, Allison! ❤️"
