    Comment:  Grace is great - out of the 5-6 LC's that we had spoken with (NYU included), she was the most thorough, understanding and realistic. Plus she made me feel comfortable with my decisions and goals about pumping and breastfeeding. She specializes in tongue ties and is so knowledgeable in that particular area.

    Comment:  10/10 recommend Grace. So impressed with her vast knowledge and her sane, non-alarmist approach. Warm and professional demeanor, highly responsive, super thorough. She walked me through struggles with tongue tie, mastitis, and my baby’s cow milk allergy.

    Comment:  Grace MacNair, the second lactation consultant I hired, was FABULOUS. She was extraordinarily helpful, and prorates her fee based on actual time spent. She also emailed me the filled-out form I needed to send to my insurance, which was incredibly helpful. She was extremely non-judgemental, warm, and so helpful.

    Comment:  This was after my child’s birth, we had some breastfeeding issues. I liked Grace just fine, but the glowing reviews here seem exaggerated? Everything she told me to do was helpful but also so much more work than I could handle. “Do this exercise 6 times a day” stuff like that. Maybe that’s how they all are but I found it overwhelming.

    Comment:  Grace provided early support and recommendations on my breastfeeding journey. She shared resources and information to help us maneuver through decisions, but was never forceful or pushy when it came to deciding what was best for us.

    Comment:  SO knowledgeable and helpful. I trust and respect her opinion immensely and attribute much of my parenting success (so far) on her advice.

    Comment:  I was referred to my amazing lactation consultant Grace MacNair, through the PSP March 2020 babies group. Several of the moms in the group spoke very highly of her and I can now attest they were right on the money! I have had 5-6 virtual sessions with her so and she couldn’t have been more helpful and knowledgeable in guiding me through the sometimes complex world of breastfeeding my little one. A major bonus being that she accepts insurance!

    Comment:  I wanted to drop a quick note on this thread to say thank you SO much for the recommendation of Grace MacNair. Our four day old struggled to latch from the beginning and hadn’t at all since we got home from the hospital. Within 15 mins of our virtual visit just now she had him latched on again - something many nurses and the hospital lactation consultant didn’t achieve. She has given us incredibly comprehensive advice that will make our lives so much easier. I couldn’t recommend her enough and many thanks to the original poster and follow up comments that meant I had her info at my fingertips. I am so relieved!

    Comment:  Hi all, thanks so much for this thread - it came at a moment of desperation for me so I contacted Grace immediately and she was very responsive, and able to get us in yesterday morning. She was so reassuring and normalized a lot of the struggle for me, and has us on a great plan now. I am feeling so much better and more confident. Also fantastic that she takes Aetna!

    Comment:  We are using Grace too! She is the best. Our baby was in the NICU for two weeks and therefore was getting bottle-fed and using a pacifier. I also had a delay in establishing milk supply due to his NICU stay. She has help increase my milk supply, helped my husband with paced bottle feeding, and as is also working with our baby’s latch. right now were using a nipple shield and she doesn’t make me feel bad about it. Baby is gaining weight! I can't say enough great things about her

    Comment:  We delivered our baby at NYU on 3/14, and have been really struggling since with feeding. Baby has tongue tie and lip tie, and we went home feeling so deeply overwhelmed. We have been working through it with virtual visits with a lactation consultant and I wanted to share her information in case anyone else is struggling to find help amid isolation.We found Grace MacNair through Boober and she accepts both United Healthcare and Aetna insurance. It has made getting help for our feeding issues so much easier, and I can't express how thankful we are. Grace has been able to help us so much even from afar, and I'm feeling much more confident about working through our feeding issues.I hope this helps anyone who has been sent home with a baby who is struggling to breastfeed and gain weight.
