“Frances is so wonderful. We are so grateful for the help we received with breastfeeding. I was having so much pain with nursing my second baby and she helped us find solutions that made all the difference. She is kind, and compassionate and a wonderful listener. I felt she really cared about us and took the time to understand my concerns and frustrations. I really appreciated that she was able to do a home visit and immediately felt comfortable with her in my home. Thank you Frances for providing such an important service for mamas and babies!”

Lehua Lactation offers breastfeeding support by board-certified lactation consultant Frances Hartley.
Working at a hospital as a lactation consultant, Frances noticed that many families go home without the lactation and feeding support that they need.
New parents are discharged from the hospital sleep-deprived, overwhelmed and unsure what to expect.
One-on-one, personalized outpatient lactation care is vital for breastfeeding/chestfeeding success.
