Kayla is awesome! I first worked with her during a group-oriented sugar elimination diet, in which she provided amazing education, advice, and suggestions to achieve healthier but realistic dietary habits. After this, I continued to work with Kayla individually to address some of my own specific issues, including tailoring my diet to my physical activities and fertility issues. Kayla is great at helping you achieve a regimen that makes sense for you and your lifestyle, and I’ve really enjoyed all that I’ve learned from her!

Kayla is simply amazing. It's no secret that breastfeeding is no walk in the park, especially when you're attempting it for the first time. My breastfeeding journey with my son has been a rollercoaster, full of struggles and crying - second guessing my abilities and my supply. I was about to give up altogether and was feeling so defeated when I found Kayla. She was so understanding and kind when I reached out for help. Her help in the comfort of my own home was so incredibly helpful, and left me with a new found confidence in myself and the fact that I could give my son what he needed. I highly recommend her services to any mother, struggling or not! If what you are looking for is guidance and support, then Kayla is what you need!

– Sarah R. (Breastfeeding Client)

The first two weeks of breastfeeding were so challenging. I had so many questions and concerns as I was going. My little girl was born early, and had troubles establishing my supply since she was so sleepy to eat all the time. I was incredibly thankful to Kayla who helped ease my anxiety over breastfeeding struggles tremendously. Kayla responded very quickly to all of my questions and messages and was extremely thorough in her explanations. Breastfeeding my daughter went so much more smoothly and easily with Kayla's help. Working with Kayla was an incredible blessing and an amazing experience.

I appreciated Kayla’s expertise as a nutritionist and mom who has done BLW. I was feeling overwhelmed about introducing solids but after the workshop I feel confident and even excited. I had heard so much conflicting information about starting solids and Kayla cleared it all up.

– Hannah S. (Baby Led Feeding Course Participant)

I really enjoyed this workshop that Kayla provided! It was so easy to do online and I learned all the information I needed to start BLW. I also loved the recipes provided to give me some ideas to start with.
