I cannot recommend Goldilacts ENOUGH. I used them early in my postpartum days for a virtual lactation consultation since I'm not in the LA area (Facetime over the phone--SO easy!) and loved them so much I used them two more times as my breastfeeding journey evolved (going back to work/pumping tips, tips for when the baby hits the stage where they're distracted while feeding, teething help, general postpartum support, best practices for bottle feeding, storing frozen milk, using haakaa pumps, etc.). You would not believe what you learn in an hour (and I went to multiple breastfeeding classes before I gave birth--you'll still learn from them, they're breastfeeding and postpartum GENIUSES). They're the most supportive coaches you can find and they're accessible via text after the session. Pretty much just want to be best friends with both of them. OH--and both Candice E AND Candice J are amazing--you can't lose. 10/10!!! Such a great care team for such a demanded process! Worth every penny.
I just had my first baby and I've worked with Candice Nicole for many weeks now and I cannot say better things go about how incredible she has been to us.
From the initial introduction call to our several hour educational prep course to our follow up virtual chats and alllll the texts in between - Candice is a warm, kind, nurturing, empathetic, mama bear and most of all she knows her Shit!!
She's so sharp and makes me feel very seen and heard and her support has truly empowered both me and my Husband.
We've accomplished so much virtually that I have been amazed by! She has your back no matter what struggle or question may arise.
I spoke with many lactation consultants before we went with goldilacts and Candice and it's because her communication style, warmth, and attention to detail stood out above all the others.
I can't recommend Candice and her team enough. I'm a very tough cookie to impress and she has gone so far above and beyond.
We're very grateful to have found her!
