We met with Briana less than a week after my first child was born. I was having difficulty breastfeeding despite the hospital telling me what a great latch my child had. I knew something was wrong right away when feeding him had left me in tears. She provided me with accurate information and was able to help with positioning and techniques for getting him to latch properly. She came out several times, and I was always able to contact her if I had any questions. She was essential in continuation of my breastfeeding journey. Without her, I would have quit a long time ago!
Briana’s warm and laid back demeanor made the consultation easy and stress free – so important in those first weeks of complete sleep deprivation as a first time mom! After meeting with Briana both times I felt a lot more confident in my ability to breastfeed our son and later tackle pumping. Thanks Briana!
Briana was so helpful to me when I needed assistance with my son latching just a couple of days after I gave birth. She was able to meet with me the next day which is crucial during that first week and trying to learn how to breastfeed. Briana gave me the confidence boost I needed by weighing my baby before and after each feeding. This assured me that he was getting enough milk and that I was on the right track. I would recommend Briana if you need more assistance after leaving the hospital.
Briana was excellent, she had a ton of great tips and information to help me be confident with my breastfeeding. I would recommend her to anyone who is doubting themselves or just concerned they might be doing something wrong. The in home visit is well worth it to answer all your questions and give you peace of mind in the process!
OMG, we are doing so much better! I showered with her yesterday and cuddled in bed. She loved it! And I relaxed a lot too. Her latching improved a ton. I think she is going through a growth spurt because she went back to nursing every 2 hours last night…which I didn’t mind at all because she was latching and feeding so well!! My husband gave her a bottle with paced feeding this morning so I could get a little extra sleep, and she continued to latch well all day. Your advice was a lifesaver, and also helped me focus on the fun part of having a baby, so thank you!!!
Thanks for being so helpful, friendly, knowledgable, and down to earth — coming to my house to teach me everything I need to know about breastfeeding prior to the birth of my little one! I am feeling peace of mind knowing that I have already met with you and will have a great resource for success after baby arrives!
I was 4 days postpartum, struggling with nursing issues and in the height of postpartum anxiety, when Briana came to my rescue. I contacted her after being referred by a friend, and Briana came to my home within 24 hours to offer her services. She was with me for easily 2 hours asking me questions, getting to know my baby and I, letting me cry and listening to my concerns, and helping me to form a plan. After leaving my home that day, Briana took time to check in on me via text almost on a daily basis. The plan that she formed with me was to get me through a week because it was what I felt I could handle. On my goal date, Briana contacted me to see where I stood on my plan and how she could help. Since then, she’s continued to check in on me and has been willing to answer questions as I’ve had them. I’m sorry I didn’t know about Briana when I had my other two babies. I can tell that she truly cares about me and my child and is willing to help in whatever way possible. I don’t regret contacting her and having her help for a second!
Briana was a tremendous help to my newborn daughter and I as we worked through the early weeks of breastfeeding. Her knowledge and support helped my daughter and I establish and maintain a successful breastfeeding relationship. Whenever I needed help or had questions, Briana has been readily available. We never would have gotten to where we are today without her help, guidance and support. Many thanks!
Briana has been a wealth of knowledge for me on my breastfeeding journey. As a new first time Mom I had a zillion questions! Briana was always there for me and was a enormous help. She went above and beyond and out of her way to make sure that all of my questions were answered and to make sure I was comfortable. Our original goal was 6 months and we’re still going strong on 11 months. Without Briana’s help and encouragement I don’t think we would’ve made it this far. She’s helped us through tongue tie and latch issues and plugged ducts. I cannot say enough wonderful things about her and recommend her to any mother who needs help,advice,encouragement and information along the way. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!❤️
Thank You so much Briana Rainey Violand for all your help and knowledge about breastfeeding. Being a mother of four children that unfortunately I did not nurse, you were a wealth of information for me as a new Grandma how to pace feed before my daughter went back to work. Watching you help my daughter and her new baby get the proper do’s and don’ts down also helped me become pro-active and supportive for her in the first few weeks of adjustments. Your patience and knowledge are greatly appreciated, you are a wonderful lactation consultant 😊
Briana has already helped me with issues I’ve had breastfeeding my second daughter. She is a wealth of knowledge and can help you with any questions or issues you may have breastfeeding. She’s awesome!!!
We just got back from 2 nights out of town and A slept so well away from home!! She slept in her own hotel bed and napped and didn’t put up any fuss about it. She slept the whole night through both nights as well. This is the icing on the cake from all the sleep training as the last time we traveled with the kids, summer 2018, was a nightmare. It was so bad that we’ve avoided traveling with the kids as long as possible. It was so cool to be able to travel with them and have a positive sleep experience. It made all the difference for making it an enjoyable trip!! And, most nights are good nights lately, with A sleeping through the night. Our work with you has paid off and we can’t thank you enough!!
Briana was such a pleasure to work with! She took the time to listen to our individual story and she remained helpful and nonjudgmental throughout the entire process. She was able to tailor our sleep plan to fit our entire family’s needs and finally get Mom and Dad a full night’s sleep! Whenever I reached out to her, she was very quick to reply and provide guidance. Overall, we were very satisfied and would absolutely recommend Briana’s services to our friends and family.
Briana was very helpful with educating us regarding sleep training, especially during nap-time. Isaiah went from sleeping in our arms during nap-time to sleeping in his crib for over an hour each nap. She helped us to attain our goal and I would highly recommend her sleep services!
Briana assisted us with re-sleep training our 21 month old son following the birth of our daughter. Our son regressed after our daughters birth and refused his crib. Every night was a huge battle that resulted in tears for all parties and him sleeping on a twin bed. The twin bed allowed for him to get up at any time, which he did quite frequently. Briana helped us get some of our sanity back by administering a sleep plan to help give us more confidence and tips to get our son back into his crib. Although it was not easy, our son has been in his crib for the last 4 nights, sleeping quietly through the night again.
