“Breastfeeding my son was possible because of Maya at High Country Lactation! I was struggling so much, and she made it so simple. She showed me the skills I needed to work on and provided the tools necessary to feed my baby. Maya followed up with me and was there for me when I needed guidance the most. Thank you for making my family’s dream come true.” – Hannah
