Hi ladies,
Just checking for a good lactation consultant that works in Ann Arbor or the in surrounding areas. A friend is having a baby in A2, and I'm having one a little later, and I'm in Howell. My friend had some atypical complications for her first, and needed someone with more than general bfing knowledge. This time around, her second could have the same medical needs/bfing issues, so she's trying to get prepared. I would just like to have someone's number handy in case I need help. It's #1 for me, so I'm hoping for a champion nurser!

Any good reviews or suggestions? Thanks!

My mw is from Ann Arbor, and she highly recommends the LCs at the Center for the Childbearing Year:

I've also heard good things about the Center's LC.

Barbara Robertson is the best LC I have ever met/worked with. She knows pretty much all there is to know, and recommends things like CST and alternative therapies. I've assisted her when she taught breastfeeding classes, and she...gah, she's just amazing. :

I could not recommend anyone more.

Thanks, gals! I'll pass that info on to my friend, and I'll tuck her name away for myself! Thanks again!
