Breastfeeding AssistanceI would strongly recommend both Freda Rosenfeld (Ditmas Park based, if she is in the USA), and Sarah Eichler (in Crown Heights). Both are IBCLCs. If you are struggling, especially with weight gain and latching, seeing an IBCLC with more experience would be my suggestion. They have more training to deal with bigger potential issues. I saw both Freda and Sarah with my girls.
Review from the 2020 Birthing Experience SurveyGood
Lactation consultantAnother IBCLC who I saw and also excellent is Sarah Eichler. I know she takes Aetna but not sure of the others. (December 2019)
2019 Birth SurveyShe takes Aetna insurance. She's calm, friendly and was a great resource in giving new the confidence that I could do this
2018 ReviewShe’s super supportive no matter what your feeding choices are and is great at making you feel like you totally got this breastfeeding thing. Because she’s an IBLC (or whatever the acronym is
2018 ReviewI highly recommend Sarah Eichler firstname.lastname@example.org I used her twice when Mia is 1 month and when I was about to get back to work.
2018 ReviewI loved my LC Sarah Eichler. Check to see if insurance covers it. I know my plan covered up to 12 sessions.
Review submitted via the PSP Birth SurveySo helpful! Her guidance & clarity saved us when our baby was tongue tied & lost too much weight. She helped us make a plan to ensure he gained weight back quickly, while also protecting my milk supply. Very skilled & caring. Based on an October 2017 birthing experience.
Review submitted via the PSP Birth SurveyAmazing! We would not have gotten through our first month without her. The suggestions and advice are practical and delivered with warmth and compassion. As a new mom, she totally helped me understand my supply issues and how to help our baby eat and latch better. Based on a September 2017 birthing experience.
Review submitted via the PSP Birth SurveyShe's okay. My breastfeeding got better after her advice but I still had to watch other videos on my own and ended up using techniques other than she taught. Based on June 2017 birthing experience
Review submitted via the PSP Birth SurveyVery good Based on Nov 2016 birth experience
Review submitted via the PSP Birth SurveyI met Sarah just once at her office in Crown Heights. I had a fine experience when I met her. She weights the baby before and after the feeding and she checked if the position I was using was good enough. At the end of the visit she sent me some youtube video to show how to latch on properly. Unfortunately she didn't follow up and never replied to my following questions on breastfeeding and pumping. Based on September 2016 birth experience
Review submitted via the PSP Birth SurveySarah was very helpful and got me through a tough time with a jaundiced baby. I was happy to pay the price for the first home visit, but follow up appointments became prohibitavely expensive. She understood and consulted over the phone and email free of charge. Based on December 2016 birth experience
Review submitted via the PSP Birth SurveyWe didn't have much in the way of problems breastfeeding, but Sarah still provided useful advice to make me more comfortable with nursing, pumping and feeding my baby from a bottle. She took my insurance, which was really great. Based on December 2016 birth experience

Review submitted via the 2016 Birth SurveySarah was AMAZING. I had some latch issues and lots of pain, cracking etc and she was a god send. So easy going, not judgemental, realistic, and helpful.

Review submitted via 2015 Birth SurveySarah is amazing! Breast feeding was a painful nightmare before she came and gave us simple tips and exercises. I am still breastfeeding at a year thanks to her!

Based on a 2014 Birthing ExperienceMember Review: I was referred to her through another mom in my month cohort (thank you!) Sarah was so amazingly helpful! She was able to come the next day, immediately helped my son improve his latch so it was less painful for me and was just generally so sweet and sup Insurance details: She gave me a coded bill that I could submit to my flex spending, but I had used it up at that time. My insurance didn't start covering lactation consultants until 9 months after my son was born. Hopefully next time around... (Review submitted via the 2014 Birthing Survey)

She was able to correctly diagnose the problem as thrush. She gave me helpful suggestions to improve my son's latch-on position. She also helped by determini Insurance details: My insurance did not cover lactation consultants, so I paid out of pocket. The money was reimbursed through flexible spending. however. Sarah did provide me documentation in case my insurance would cover lactation consultants. (Review submitted via the 2014 Birthing Survey)
Review of Lactation ConsultantI’d like to recommend the services of Sarah Eichler, an IBCLC, LCCE certified lactation consultant. I met her through the free BF class at South Slope Pediatrics, which was helpful. (not to mention free!) I had latching issues, which Sarah helped me to resolve soon after the birth of my baby. She came to our home on time, was warm, friendly and patient while teaching me ways to resolve the issue. She provides paperwork that can be submitted to your insurance for reimbursement. She also followed up the next day, and checked in periodically to be sure things were going well, with tips and recommendations as needed. Later, we had issues with switching to bottle-feeding. She made time to see us right away. Again she was patient and positive, and helped to pinpoint our obstacles. We left feeling confident and with stress relieved about the transition. I would urge anyone struggling with breastfeeding to see her. Don’t suffer, get help!
Summary: RE: Lactation consultantI loved Sarah - She is so knowledgeable and prompt. I called her Sunday and she made a home visit appointment on Monday. She created a tailored plan just for me and Gave me insurance paperwork.
