“I had significant struggles breastfeeding my first child and wanted to seek some professional help with my second, who was born mid-June. Darcy was recommended to me for lactation consulting. Darcy proved to be an incredible asset and an amazing help to me and my family. She was timely with her correspondence and flexible with her schedule to accommodate my crazy life with a newborn and a toddler running around. She came to visit in the hospital and then to our house as needed. She was kind, gentle, tender and very comfortable to be around. I found her overall demeanor calming, allowing me to focus on my baby. Her support was the key to my success, she always followed up with me to make sure I wasn’t having any trouble and left me with helpful tips and notes to refer to. My baby and I are nursing pain free and efficiently all because of the assistance from Darcy. I would highly recommend her for postpartum and lactation consultation for any new or new again mother no matter how big or small your issue may be. Her prices are very reasonable and worth every penny, my only regret is that I didn’t find her earlier.” Rose, Eliot, ME

“Dover Doula provided me with excellent breast-feeding support. Darcy is patient, knowledgeable, an excellent listener and extremely helpful. I’ve been to other lactation consultants who pretty much take over the whole process and not let you do it yourself so when you get back home you still have no idea what you’re doing. Darcy not only came to my home but she stood back, watched what I was doing first and then offered her advice and support in a very kind and reassuring manner. I highly recommend her!” Amy M. Portsmouth, NH
