Jennifer Leopold, IBCLC, LMSW - Brooklyn Birthing Center
lactation consultantHi. I would highly highly recommend Jenn Leopold.. And this is after going through many other lactation consultants. she is very knowledgeable and connected with a lot of other good resources.
2019 Birth SurveyJenn helped me when several other lactation consultants I had seen were not able to figure out why I was having incredible pain when breastfeeding. It was a high palate--Jenn suggested a tongue tie clip (which helped my baby be able to work around this structural abnormality) and position changes which saved our ability to breastfeed.
2018 ReviewJenn Leopold of First Latch is amazing. 917-750-9708. Totally saved me with my 2015 daughter (no troubles this time thanks in part at least to Jenn’s expert training last time). I went through so many lactation consultants last time and realized there are many bad ones, but also that my insurance covered most or all of their services so it was worth it to keep trying until I found someone who took care of our problems!
Review submitted via the PSP Birth SurveyShe saved the day at 6 months when I was still having plugged ducts and she identified a tongue tie that others had said was "minor." Also a La Leche leader so has that general approach. Based on July 2016 birth experience
re: [PSPDads] Lactation ConsultantI feel a little silly about accidentally joining the Dads list, but want to share our IBCLC, who takes some insurance (see the Brooklyn Birthing Center for a list of in network insurers). I believe she does home visits, but has given me advice by phone without a visit, and once you are a client she can get you a prescription over the phone for mastitis (if recurring). She is also super entertaining, passionate, supportive, and runs the Midwood LLL. Good luck! Mastitis is no joke.
Review submitted via 2015 Birth SurveyReview: We saw her 5 days after giving birth and helped in correcting the breastfeeding position. I am about to make a new appointment with her. A breastfeeding class is organized at BBC prior to giving birth and you are encouraged to visit them after the baby has come. This is included in the prenatal follow up.
Review submitted via 2015 Birth SurveyReview: Jen is a very informed and professional lactation consultant. She is based at the Brooklyn Birthing Center. I went to her when my daughter was 3 days old because my nipples were sore. She helped correct the latch and gave me a few suggestions. I can call her whenever I have concerns.
