Betty Greenman, IBCLC
Review from the Spring 2023 Birthing SurveyWhat month and year was your child born? November 2022 Review: Betty responds quickly and is very personable and helpful. She gave us a lot of advice, but some of it my pediatrician didn't agree with (like putting a newborn's crib at an angle vs laying flat being best). She also implied that newborns can be spoiled, which I disagree with personally.
Review from the Spring 2023 Birthing SurveyWhat month and year was your child born? April 2023 Review: Betty came for an in person consult to help with latching issues after birth. She brought a bunch of helpful items to leave behind - a better nursing bra, the best nipple cream, some nipple covers, and nipple shields. Showed me how to use all of these and suggested a few tweaks to technique that made breastfeeding a lot less painful. Would recommend her highly.
Review from the Spring 2022 Birthing SurveyLoved Betty. It was like getting a visit from a grandma who just soothed every concern. We received a lot of conflicting information at the hospital and were overwhelmed when we got home. She got us set up with a plan and offered some great hands on adjustments (switched to football hold). Was sad to not re-use her after my insurance changed
Lactation consultants doing in-person visits?Betty Greenwood is amazing and doing in person visits with fabulous boobie goody bags
Review from the 2020 Birthing Experience SurveyBetty is a goddess! With such a complicated birth, my milk took a while to come in and Betty could not have been more helpful and kind (judgement-free) after a post-birthing experience at NYU full of judgemental nurses. She helped me go on to experience breastfeeding with my son for almost a year!
2019 Birth SurveyExcellent. Came to my apartment and was covered by insurance. She brought supplies and did a weighted feed. She was so calm and reassuring and left a detailed plan for me to follow. I also emailed her when I had a clogged duct and she was super responsive.
2019 Birth SurveyBetty came for a house visit the next day and was fully covered by my insurance. She gave me some lactation freebies which were helpful (boob rings, nipple cream) and was a reassuring presence. I probably wouldn't have made it to a consultation if I had to leave my house, so Betty was a lifesaver.
2018 ReviewWe were very happy with Betty, she came at our place, took care of the insurance reimbursement, etc.
