Rachel Crossen is amazing! After trying a different company, I turned to Premier Lactation Consultants and couldn't have been more pleased. Rachel was very kind and incredibly helpful. She took her time, provided me with detailed reports and followed up regularly. She was able to fix a very painful latch and recommended a dentist to correct my daughter's tongue and lip tie. My little one was underweight, not gaining fast enough and I was in incredible pain during every nursing session. Her latch is now pain-free and, most important, she is now chunking up, gaining well, and very satisfied after each feeding. I think the picture speaks for itself. I'm so thankful for Rachel and Premier Lactation Consultants!

Laura was amazing. She came over at a most vulnerable time just a few days after birth and helped us tremendously.

Rachel was amazing! Her tips allowed me to successfully nurse my 3.5 month old daughter after exclusively pumping and bottle feeding her breast milk! Without her help, I would not have been able to nurse her.

Thank you Jennifer for being really thorough with assisting me on breastfeeding my son. The weighted feedings, checking for tongue ties and showing me various ways to hold and latch him. We have been going strong for 5 months now with no plans on stopping. Thank you for checking in on me and answering my plethora of questions. I have already recommended Premier Lactation Consultants to many of my friends who are expecting! ‎
Testimonial : Momma Hayley

Due to several circumstances out of my control, I have had a low milk supply since my son's birth. I would not have made it breastfeeding one month if it wasn't for Rachel. I was able to breastfeed my son for three months, and thanks to Rachel giving me the tools and tips I needed, I have been able to quadruple my supply and continue to pump to feed my son. He is now 6 months old and receiving half milk and half formula. This is an accomplishment I am so proud of and I am grateful to have had the support I needed to get here.

Thank you so much Jennifer for taking the time to help me on such short notice. You went above and beyond the call of duty. You not only allowed me to breastfeed my little one, but you also saved Charlie from having a life time of speech and dental problems by discovering the tongue and lip tie. I will always recommend you to other mothers! Also, your response to emails and random lactation questions were a life saver. As a health care provider myself, I thought your clinic was very professional and provided outstanding care. The environment was very comfortable and welcoming, but what I appreciated about the entire encounter was your calm demeanor. You never made me feel inadequate about having breastfeeding issues and did not make me feel guilty about having to use bottles or formula. You are extremely practical and your first focus was the child. I knew that Charlie was being looked after and I knew you would be honest with me if breastfeeding was not an option. Your care for the child above all else was what made me truly fall in love with your clinic!! I hope that you continue your work. You are a true blessing to mothers like me. I appreciate everything that you have done. - Mommy Jessica

Hospital & Home Lactation Consult Testimonial
I needed help breastfeeding right from the start!  Jennifer came to my aide during my hospital stay and I remember saying to her "you should write a book!"  No one talks about how difficult breastfeeding can be and I experienced first hand the challenges that it can present.  Jennifer came right along side of me and made it her personal goal to help me succeed.  I was so impressed with Jennifer's determination to find a solution for my pain that I was experiencing during breastfeeding.  She even suggested reasons for the pain that my doctors had not even thought of!  I highly recommend Jennifer and know she will give others the knowledge and care that she gave to me and my son.  - Caroline & Little Hudson, Gainesville, VA

"Jennifer was very informative and eager to show me different things to help me nurse my daughter.  It was such a breath of fresh air.  She was eager to answer any questions I had and willing to show me several different nursing positions to help me while nursing."  - Katie & Little Marsha, Haymarket,VA
Phone Consult Testimonial
I have nursed my first 3 kids for the last 6 years and experienced many nursing problems and many lactation consultants.  So, when I had new problems with my 4th child I called a new lactation consultant and could not be happier with my choice.  I described my pain to Jennifer over the phone and she knew what the problem was immediately.  Her knowledge, patience and encouragement helped me get through my difficult 8 week journey to pain free nursing.  Even though we've never met I looked forward to telling her of my successes and cherished her support through the bumps.  I can never thank her enough."  - Erin H., Montclair, VA

I cannot begin to say enough about how much Jennifer has helped us in our journey to nursing. My son would only latch after quite a bit of frustration and crying during his first two weeks of life, then not at all. Jennifer very patiently tried every trick in the book and always had suggestions for things I could be doing to help my son accept the breast. After a little time had passed she'd come back out and try something a little different. Because of her continued support and encouragement I was able to stick with it long enough for my son to finally accept the breast and begin nursing at 2 months old. I never would have lasted so long with the pumping without her!  - Amy & Little Matthew, Gainesville,VA
Phone Consult Testimonial
Jennifer helped me through a very trying time in my life. I was faced with the decision to stop breastfeeding after extreme anxiety caused me to be forced to take action in the form of medication. Afraid of losing my job and also afraid of harming my baby I called another lactation consultant who recommended me to her. Immediately she eased my fears and told me stories of her own battles with breastfeeding and anxiety. With her help and knowledge I did not have to stop breastfeeding and was able to find the right medication to assist with my problem. Jennifer stressed that getting to the root of the problem was essential to solving the problem, which exemplifies her true concern for the well-being of her moms and babies. Without her I would not have been equipped with the knowledge necessary to continue a healthy breastfeeding relationship with my daughter. I will forever be grateful for her help.  - Mommy Larissa
Hospital Nursery Nurse & Lactation Consult Testimonial
Hi Jennifer, I just wanted to say you were an awesome nurse!  You probably don't remember me since you have so many patients but you taught me how to do the side laying hold which was a life saver for us.  My daughter wouldn't nurse at all and was pretty much 100% on bottles until she was 10 weeks and I was finally able to get her completely on the breast.  But at the beginning of those 10 weeks she would ONLY nurse in the side laying hold, never with me sitting up, so I am eternally grateful to you for teaching me how to nurse like that, because if it weren't for that one little glimmer of hope that we could nurse, I probably would have stopped trying completely.  So THANK YOU so much!!  My daughter is 6 months old today and has just about 100% on the breast since 10 weeks old.  She's only been bottle fed a few bottles.  - Stephanie & Little Samantha, Manassas, VA
Home Consult Testimonial
At first I thought breastfeeding would be a breeze. I thought my son would latch, milk would come in, and within a week or so we would have a routine down. Unfortunately my son was tongue tied, and didn't latch. The hospital I was in immediately started pushing to supplement with formula and I wasn't aware of the other options available to me. About ten days after my son was born, I had an in home visit with Jennifer, and within the first five minutes my knowledge of what why my son wasn't latching and what I could do to help my milk supply come in doubled. Two months later I'm still only producing six ounces a day if I'm lucky, and I nurse my son once when he first wakes up, and again before bedtime so that we still have that physical bonding experience, and I pump in between. It's not the breastfeeding experience I had hoped for, but without Jennifer's help and encouragement I would have stopped breastfeeding after the third week. The weekly emails to check in on me were brief, but so helpful. I knew that she had me and my son's interest at heart. From day one Jennifer said she would be in my corner rooting for me to continue even though it was difficult, and she did.  I am so happy I made that phone call. It was one of the best things I could have done for my son. - Mommy Robin

Jennifer was absolutely a life saver when it came to figuring out how to get our baby to latch on properly and the signs to see she was really taking in the milk! My little one dropped weight and luckily I had Jennifer to the rescue and we were able to bring it back up especially when that first week can be so overwhelming! She was easy to get a hold of and was very responsive and provided great advice and instruction. She is very pleasant to work with and look forward to continuing to contact her once I'm preparing to go to work or with any issues that come up! Thanks Jennifer!! - Mommy Leslie, 3 Day Old Infant Consult

Having breastfed my first one without much complication, I thought I was going to have the same fortune with my second one. When things started to prove otherwise, I was hopeful to be helped by the lactation consultants at the hospital. I had a c-section and thought that 4 days in the hospital being surrounded by lactation consultants was going to do the trick. I was wrong. This time was going to be more complicated and I left the hospital without a clue about breastfeeding, with very sore nipples and on the verge of a mastitis infection. Thank goodness I had no issues in the production department, but getting my baby to get her milk out was the issue here! I breastfed my first child and knew that it shouldn’t be that painful. The day we came home from the hospital I could not take the pain anymore and started pumping. That night, a Sunday night, my husband did some research and we decided to contact Jennifer.  She got back to us within a couple of hours and the next day, Monday, she was at my house at 10 AM. Right from the moment she came into my bedroom I felt hopeful! She was not fooling around. She meant business. She was so well equipped, set up the weighting station in my bathroom, set up her working station next to my bed and started talking! She examined my breast and diagnosed the beginning of mastitis and gave me gel compresses for my very sore and cracked nipples. The way she explained what was going on with them and the solutions she gave us showed her level of expertise and again made me feel confident and grateful for having her there. Then she went on to examine my baby girl, who was only 5 days old. By the time Jennifer started handling her I already trusted her 100%. I was so sure this woman was going to help us. She said my daughter had tongue-tie and that a frenotomy was recommended.  First time in my life that I had heard of this procedure, it sounded kind of barbarian, yet, there I was considering it only because this woman I just met was suggesting it. But this is how confident and informed Jennifer seemed. Everything she said, she typed it. She answered the one thousand questions my husband asked. I am positive he asked one thousand questions. He was googling everything she said right there with us, and was kind of quizzing her. She excelled on my husband’s quiz!   Jennifer's first visit was very hopeful. But it was just the beginning of a long journey. We did have my daughter had the frenotomy by Doctor Harley in Georgetown university. We also met Doctor Stephane, a pediatrician chiropractor to whom we all go now on a regular basis. He also contributed to my breastfeeding relationship with my baby girl. And he was also a recommendation from Jennifer. Throughout this long journey I felt Jennifer was with us at every single step we took. Sometimes I felt as if I was her only client, given her promptness to my never ending last minute emails and text messages. She answered every single one of them. Our correspondence included, among many, a tearful, emotional video I sent her the first time my baby latched on. :) My baby is almost 5 months old now. And I am back to work! And, although I am supplementing with formula since I went back to the office due to low supply (due to illness...another long story) I’m working on getting back my production and catch up on the supply. But still I am so grateful I was able to exclusively breastfeed her for four months. I am glad my husband did the research and contacted Jennifer, and I’m glad she came into our lives :) I have, and will continue to recommend your services to every single pregnant lady I meet! - Mommy Paola & Baby Luna
