A Bit About Me

Hadassah Mann

As a young mother, I set out to exclusively breastfeed my daughter. I didn’t expect the hurdles that lay ahead of us. She did not gain well, cried a lot, spit up tons, and nursed all the time. Additionally, I struggled with low supply. I was finally directed to a lactation consultant to try to improve matters. She did help somewhat and suggested we start with an SNS - a supplementary nursing system. That is basically a small tube connected to a bottle which can be used while nursing to increase intake and supply. The consultant used formula in it and my daughter gave it right back, even though she had only ingested a small amount! It was only months later that we discovered that she was allergic to milk and soy. Luckily, I had persisted with nursing, otherwise she really would have suffered.

I continued to have various breastfeeding difficulties with each child, all the time researching and learning more and more. With all my accumulated knowledge, I began to help others with their nursing challenges as well and quickly became the go-to person in the neighborhood with such questions.

In 2012, I decided to start my journey to becoming an IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant) so I could more adequately assist mothers in reaching their infant feeding goals. After much learning and invaluable internships, I became an IBCLC and am eager to help all mothers start off on the right foot!

Hadassah has been extremely helpful in her guidance and techniques for my beginning stages of nursing. I was having a hard time getting my baby  comfortably latched when I got home from the hospital and the pain and soreness was getting worse. I was experiencing a lot of anxiety from it and was feeling frustrated. Hadassah did a bed visit (literally) with her calm and patient and sensitive  personality and her knowledge, she guided me step by step numerous times giving me skills and techniques and confidence to nurse without pain and tears and with joy! She answered all my questions and follow up with anything else that was nursing or baby related.
