  1. Hi Veronica
    Thanks so much for your note and for reminding me to update the website!
    Yes, the drop-ins are still on. Every Tuesday morning between 10 and 12 at Chapman Mills Dental, and every Thursday afternoon between 130 and 3 at the Early Years Centre. I hope that will be able to join us.
    Kind regards,
    Susan (Nolan)

    I cannot begin to thank Susan enough for the support that she provided me with breastfeeding. Susan is extremely knowledgeable, professional, supportive, and kind.

    During our visit at the drop-ins (I attended four sessions around the city after a very productive first meeting at the first drop-in I attended), I received the following support:

    – my son was weighed at the beginning and after nursing on each breast (which provided an accurate assessment of how much milk he was getting while nursing);
    – my son was examined for lip ties, tongue ties, and asymmetry in his head to determine if the challenges we were facing were due to a physiological problem and if he required referral to another medical professional;
    – I was observed breastfeeding and given advice on proper form to help my son latch more effectively;
    – Breastpump rentals and accessories were made available to me; and,
    – I was provided with a copy of detailed notes about what we discussed during the visit.

    I cannot say enough good things about the support I received. Following my first meeting with Susan, everything started to turn around and my son began to be much more efficient while nursing and began a steady weight gain.

    I highly recommend birth care’s services to all new moms or any mom experiencing difficulties while breastfeeding. I wish I had met with Susan sooner!

    Hi,

    I plan on attending the drop-in sessions this week. I’m a second time mom and with my first, I had to pump round the clock and supplement with formula for a month before successfully breastfeeding for a year thereafter. However, with my second, I am experiencing some challenges to my surprise. He was induced two weeks early and developed jaundice so was breastfed 5 min each boob then given pumped breast milk then topped up with formula for a month. I am exhausted and feel like I’m losing milk supply. I also have a larger right nipple and with significantly less milk from that side and a football position, it’s all just too challenging. Baby can’t sleep his 3 hour stretch unless he’s full. He is now 6 weeks old, I read a lot of great comments about Susan Nolan and I can’t wait to meet her so she can help me!
