    Comment:  Meema might be a better fit for others. We were excited at first but she shamed me a bit for supplementing with formula in the hospital (baby lost too much weight and I was exhausted from trying to get my milk to come in) and that felt like getting off on the wrong foot. She helped with lots of organizational and breastfeeding tips but was very judgmental when it came to bottle types and formula. She also contracted COVID and was diagnosed approximately 2.5 weeks after our last in-person appointment with her - but she didn’t let us know til a month or 2 later.

    Comment:  I took a "Pumping 101" class with Meema at Birth Day Presence to get ready to go back to work, and it was fantastic. She was warm, nonjudgemental, and really knowledgeable, and she shared really helpful notes afterward that I've returned to often. I imagine she would also be a fantastic consultant to do one-on-one sessions with. She knows her stuff!

    Comment:  She is a post partum dola and was a great resource for when we came home from the hospital. From making sure we were eating, to organizing the kitchen, to identifying my son wasn't latching correctly and helping me find a lactation consultant through my insurance, she was great!!!

    Comment:  Meema was exactly what we were looking for: someone who could give first time parents guidance on the basics - bathing, gear, feeding, baby wearing, sleep. She was also incredibly helpful when it came to breast feeding including a pumping plan for going back to work. I highly recommend her for peace of mind, and for a trusted resource to call on with questions.

    Comment:  She's very knowledgeable but a little overly opinionated it was helpful for me because I had no what I was doing and wanted someone with strong certain advice. She also has lactation consultant training which was particularly helpful to me.Based on February 2017 birth experience

    Comment:  Member Review: Meema was great. She helped us get settled in our first night home from the hospital, helped me handle some breast feeding crises as well as taught us how to bathe our son for the first time, how to use a carrier etc. We have recommended her to several friends!
