“I’m glad I didn’t give up when breastfeeding was so hard! Dr. Kristen Lee not only helped me improve breastfeeding, but she also helped me feel way more confident as a new mom.”

 The first two weeks after my daughter’s birth were full of fear and failure. I had to supplement with formula and use nipple shields for cracked, bruised and bleeding nipples. I thought breastfeeding would be easy, but it was painful and confusing! I saw two CLCs through my hospital, but they just encouraged the formula and shields. Every feeding took over an hour… breast, bottle, pump… I would cry most days thinking ‘I can’t keep doing this. My daughter loves the bottle and hates the breast.’ I didn’t feel any connection with my new sweet baby that I carried for over 9 months. My mom encouraged me to call Well Rounded and they had Dr. Lee talk with me. She came to my house that night! She spent two hours with us getting to know the whole story and easily corrected our latch and position issue. We stopped the bottle and the shields right there and never had to go back. It’s amazing how the depression lifted and how I felt so connected with my baby. Dr. Lee saw us again for a check in a day later. She was so supportive and available when I needed it most. I’m so thankful that I got help from the right person! Thank you, Dr. Lee!” -Laura T.

“After attempting to exclusively breast feed for a week, our family doctor recommended we begin to use formula immediately upon our first checkup.  I was heartbroken that I was not producing enough milk and latching was such a challenge.  I decided to reach out to Dr. Kristen Lee. Dr. Lee was willing to come to our home, however we met at her office at the Well-Rounded Maternity Center where within moments she was able to show me a different way to hold our baby that other consultants at the hospital had not. Latching immediately became easier.  We discussed our attempts to breastfeed and she asked of our goals.  After taking the time to understand our situation, she put me on a plan that would help increase my supply and continue to bond through breastfeeding with my little one. I could not be any happier with our decision to consult with Dr. Lee.  Since doing so, I now breastfeed with ease several times a day.  I would have given up without her guidance and support.”-Brooke T.
