"I had my first baby 7 months ago, and like many new time mothers experienced the "great nipple pain" associated with breast feeding. My nipples were extremely sore/ cracked and bleeding. Everyone kept telling me to push through it, they said it would take a few days and then go away. Well I had my daughter's 2 week pediatrician appointment and it still wasn't better (my pediatrician even expressed that she was surprised I was still having pain, and that it wasn't normal for that to last 2 weeks.) I immediately reached out to Tierney for a consultation- and saw instant results that night!! (Why did I wait so long to ask for help?!). She was extremely understanding and nurturing and gave me great recommendations that I could put to use right away. I am still exclusively feeding my 7 month old and give Tierney the credit!! The bond that I have with my daughter and the nutritional benefits she has had as a result of breastfeeding are priceless!! As a new mother I cannot ever thank Tierney enough for her compassion and expertise." -Monica Jean-Baptiste, mom of Chloe
"Tierney was there the day our triplets arrived, born at just 28 weeks and just 2 pounds each, and we were gearing up for a 67-day stay in the NICU. She made my husband and I feel comfortable and involved from the moment we walked into the unit. She trusted us to learn how to take care of our babies (tubes, wires, and fragile little bodies, notwithstanding), and she taught us to do just that. Bathing a preemie can be daunting, an even terrifying task, but Tierney not only made it manageable, but she made it exciting! She is gentle, patient, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic, and she empowers parents to take care of their babies. We were so lucky to have her as part of our lives in those early days."
-Eleanor Strumolo, NICU parent of preemie triplets
"I have worked with and known Tierney for 7 years. Her genuine nurturing spirit, sense of humor and confidence bring a sense of light and ease to those around her. She has an authentic curiosity that drives her passion for helping parents bond with their babies." - Nancy Reefer, RN, coworker
"I have the privilege of calling Tierney, my sister; as well as best friend, on-call nurse, personal lactation consultant, and so much more. I have a 2 1/2 year old son, and a 1 year old daughter. Over the past few years as a new mother and breastfeeding, Tierney has been there at every turn to impart her knowledge and expertise. Tierney has an incredible talent in the very way she imparts her knowledge, by doing so in such a way that you feel you have been heard and understood, encouraged and supported and empowered. Her knowledge, wisdom and experience, and desire to truly empower mothers in these areas leaves anyone lucky enough to benefit from her services, with a sense of peace because she cares. She is thorough and personal, down to earth and fun and quite simply; you can trust what she is offering! She is a rare gem on the journey of motherhood." -Kirsten Echelmeier-Sam, mom of Emory and Flora
