SARA NEWMAN, IBCLC, RLC
Review from the Spring 2022 Birthing SurveyVery helpful, calm and assisted me with a good plan for my breast feeding issues.
Review from the 2020 Birthing Experience SurveyGreat, very helpful, more affordable than some others.
Lactation consultantAfter a week of nursing challenges, I reached out to the lactation consultant that helped me with my first child. Her name is Sara Newman. She came in person the next day - it was completely necessary for us that she saw what was occurring with nursing in person, assess our daughter’s mouth through direct touch etc. She wore gloves, a mask, scrubs and we felt very good about her visit. She assessed that my daughter had a lip and tongue tie as well as poorly developed suck swallow reflex from an early birth. The lactation consultant in the hospital told me to just keep trying EVERY HOUR to nurse and Sara said STOP! this won’t resolve through nursing attempts. I should mention that the pediatrician didn’t pick up on the ties either. Now that we had the lip and tongue tie release procedures, and we are using a special bottle and exercises, Sara is working with us by phone for next steps. I can’t imagine the initial assessment having been as clear without her coming to us and seeing and feeling what was happening. She’s super smart and a clear communicator. She’s an IBCLC and a postpartum doula.
Review from the 2020 Birthing Experience SurveyExcellent. She was just the person & the advice I needed when I needed it.
Review from the 2020 Birthing Experience SurveyCompletely solved our problem when baby wouldn’t latch two weeks post partum. Low intervention, so knowledgeable. Now we are pros!
Lactation consultant recommendationsI second Sarah Newman!!!! Saw so many LC’s and she’s the only one who made an impactful difference.
Lactation consultant recommendationsSara Newman was so helpful to me when nursing all of a sudden became really painful. She figured out the issue right away and her recommendations resolved it quickly. She was also really positive and great to work with.
Lactation consultant reccsI highly recommend Sara Newman! She really helped us with our issues and helped turn things around. She was so kind and patient with my endless questions as well.
Recommending my Lactation consultantIf you need a lactation consultant, look no further than Sara Newman. I recently used her (having experienced two others for prior babies) and she the best by far. Extremely knowledgeable, flexible, easy going and lovely. She helped me through a very complicated post birth couple of months and it available constantly for follow up questions and consultation.
2018 Birth SurveySarah was amazing. She was able to tell me within 10 minutes of feeding that my daughter had acid reflux and that I had an oversupply. I was able to get my daughter on meds for the reflux and she gave me tips on how to handle the oversupply.
2018 ReviewI worked with Sara Newman of D is for Doula and was very pleased.
Review submitted via the PSP Birth SurveySeemed knowledgeable, but I did not like that I had to initiate follow ups Based on a August 2017 birthing experience.
