Support for Multiples Testimonials

  • I have lost track of the number of times Melissa saved my twin breastfeeding journey. She has helped me navigate through clogged ducts, reflux, milk allergies, and tongue and lip ties. In addition to breastfeeding support, she’s also helped with recommending supplements for me and finding the right probiotics and formula to supplement with for the babies.

  • I can't recommend Melissa enough. I have twins and am pretty much exclusively pumping since my return to work. She has helped me with supply issues, frequent clogs, mastitis, and blistering. Melissa has also helped me find ways to maintain a breastfeeding relationship with the twins when possible/desired -- without any pressure. She is accessible between appointments and goes above and beyond in her time and assistance. I'm so grateful!

  • I know many people who have worked with Melissa to make breastfeeding successful. Having tremendous difficulty producing enough milk and breastfeeding my first, I am excited to be working with Melissa prenatally to prepare for my twins arrival next month! Her knowledge, gentleness and encouraging nature have already made a huge difference in my mental preparedness for the adventure that lies ahead!

  • We went to Luna to address issues with proper latching, milk production and digestive issues in our 2.5 month twins. Melissa was extremely thorough in our visit, looking at our situation from our family's distinct perspective and through a holistic lens, which incorporated a variety of perspectives. She presented ideas and techniques that other specialists had not. We highly recommend her.

  • Melissa is very encouraging, experienced, extremely knowledgeable and gave me HOPE in breast-feeding my twins again (babies born at 27 weeks). Highly recommend her for complicated situations. She discovered something several doctors overlooked.

  • I had a great appointment with Melissa. She was able to help me additional techniques to help my babies latch better and also diagnosed them tongue ties that were contributing to our feeding struggles. With that knowledge and a plan, I am hopeful that we will be able to establish a successful breastfeeding relationship.

  • Melissa was outstanding. She took on all of our challenges with grace, professionalism, and compassion. I have twins who were born prematurely. Challenges included limited supply and difficulty with latching. I had been seen by lactation consultants in the hospital and a lactation consultant in another office and neither was able to help me. The home visits were excellent. Melissa is thorough and extremely knowledgeable and quickly got to know me and both of my babies along with the other players involved (husband, grandmother, nanny). I was feeling very stressed out and discouraged, and she was very sensitive, patient, and encouraging, as well as realistic and practical. She used our time very well and gave very detailed and helpful visit summaries and instructions, and always made sure I was comfortable with the next steps. She is a wonderful communicator and educator. She is very easy to communicate with in person and remotely and is very open to questions and discussion. She always promptly answered my e-mails, phone calls, and text messages, even once when I was having trouble and she was out of town at a conference. After I no longer needed home visits she has continued to help me with answering my questions as needed. She is a talented, skillful, dedicated provider. I would highly recommend her to any mother, including of multiples. I am so grateful to be able to nurse my babies and so grateful for Melissa’s care!
