Doris Howie, RN IBCLC

Doris was fantastic! She was very knowledgeable and explained things clearly and simply (very helpful to an exhausted new mom).. she helped solve our challenges with breastfeeding in one visit with new positioning and latch help. I loved that she called to follow up a week or so later, too!
Doris is a sweetie and very client centered. Very validating. Kathy is great too. She is problem focused and good with specific, concrete suggestions.
Prior to giving birth your organization provided me with a pump through my insurance. When I went to pick it up, the woman at the front desk took ample time to explain each piece and how to use it. She answered all of my questions and was very reassuring and comforting for a soon-to-be first time mom. After giving birth to my daughter, your organization took the time to help me during one of my most vulnerable and frustrating times. Your organization did not one but TWO home visits after an extremely traumatic birthing experience/ c-section. Most importantly, Doris helped and encouraged me to feed my child in a way that works beautifully for both of us after many obstacles. I cannot thank you enough for all you have done for myself and my family. I HIGHLY recommend your organization.
Doris was very helpful and gave a variation of possible solutions. She was very personable and gave a lot of references.
Very friendly and informative. Nurse [Doris] put me at ease and that my struggles were normal, but could be overcome.
I was having trouble breastfeeding my newborn, when I called HBHM I was given a next day appt. Doris spent 2 hours with me and the baby. She spent time observing and giving advice; It didn’t feel rushed.
Doris and Beth met us where we were and helped us make a plan that was grounded in that and very clear. They were kind and supportive in what was a terrifically difficult time, emotionally speaking.
Easy, accommodating and sensitive to my emotions about breast feeding . Thank you for being amazing at what you guys do . Doris was an absolute light in my life when I needed it most
