Marilyn was our lactation consultant for three months, and her defining attribute was her willingness to stick with us. Marilyn was supportive not only of the breastfeeding relationship between my daughter and myself, but also of the relationship between my husband and my daughter, and my husband and myself. She was willing to come to our home in the evening, so that my husband could also learn the proper latching techniques, holds, and be able to help me When it was apparent that we were dealing with more than a poor latch, Marilyn continued to research possibilities for us, and helping us to ultimately find a diagnosis of an upper lip tie and posterior tongue tie. Marilyn continued to be a huge source of support in finding a local pediatric dentist to perform the frenectomy, alternative care providers for the follow up care, and even went to some of those appointments with us. While this was a very overwhelming and uncertain time for us, Marilyn was a source of comfort and support throughout it all.
