What Clients Are Saying
"I found Catrina online nine days after I had just given birth during the COVID-19 pandemic. She is absolutely THE BEST! I had a c-section and the baby came home from the hospital on formula. Catrina used her wealth of knowledge and amazingly supportive personality to give me the tools I needed to transition to exclusive breastfeeding. She was the ONLY lactation consultant willing to do exclusively remote sessions during the pandemic. I was too bleary-eyed to figure out remote technology (early days), so Catrina was willing to do consults by phone. She told me that she would work with me to get to exclusive breastfeeding, no matter how long that took. She gave me the confidence to believe that we would eventually get there. She taught me to do nursing vacations, start breastfeeding the baby at night when she was sleepy, and replace formula feeds with breastmilk, one-by-one. Before I knew it, we got there! Without Catrina's help and encouragement, I never would have made it. I HIGHLY recommend Catrina. Any new mother would be lucky to have Catrina's support. Any hospital or facility would be wise to scoop her up!"

We had a wonderful prenatal class with Catrina and learned some really interesting facts about breastfeeding. I’m so happy we took her course and can’t wait to implement her strategies!

"Catrina is genuine, caring, and a great listener. She has helped me with my concerns in a very timely manner and asks the right questions. I love how she checked in after our meeting to make sure we were doing alright. It made me feel like I made the right choice to contact her about my breastfeeding concerns. I also love how informative this website is. It’s always good to find a reliable place to come and gain knowledge about breastfeeding in a way that is easy and efficient."

“I’m pregnant with my first child and had no knowledge about breastfeeding or where to even start learning about it. I attended one of Catrina’s classes and I was blown away by the breadth and depth of the class. Catrina takes a holistic approach and discusses not just the nuts and bolts of breastfeeding, but also childbirth, infant care, different theories, and advice for new mothers. I left the class feeling armed with a ton of resources and confidence. She makes you feel comfortable and stops frequently for questions. The time flew by - it felt like coffee talk with old friends. I highly recommend using Catrina’s wealth of knowledge in any way you can!”

“Being a part of Mamma’s Magical Milk Support Group has given me more confidence than ever with breastfeeding my second child. I had a tough experience with my first born but didn’t find the right support I needed for my breastfeeding journey. Catrina has helped me from the beginning with this second pregnancy giving me all the information I could ever need to successfully breastfeed from different positions, tips and tricks, and enough literature on almost any breastfeeding topic! I can proudly say I’m an on-demand breastfeeding mama thanks to Catrina’s help and knowledge! She’s offering virtual classes which was extremely helpful during the Covid-19 pandemic. Thank you Catrina for your support, knowledge and love.”
"I love your blog. It's coming from a very genuine person who has such great inspiring stories. I wasn't able to breast feed my first due to a number of things, but this blog is inspiring me to try harder this next time around!"
Kassie Brikowski from NC
"I am so thankful to Catrina and the help she offered when I was trying to navigate my oversupply/overactive let down that ultimately caused my newborn to choke/spit up at every feed. Catrina offered unwavering support and provided a number of options to try until a solution was found. Ultimately, it was a combination of approaches that has resulted in a content baby and a continued and enjoyable breastfeeding experience. Catrina has a plethora of knowledge and is ready, willing and able to help even through the Covid Pandemic via FaceTime!"
Antoinette H. from NY
"I would highly recommend the Prenatal Breasfeeding Class! I took Catrina's class online during the prime of COVID knowing I probably wouldn't get a chance to do an in person class before my first baby. The class well exceeded my expectations! I knew absolutely nothing about Breastfeeding prior. After just an hour class I had some much helpful and amazing information that I will definitely plan on using and referencing from once I have the baby and throughout my breastfeeding experince!"
