Baby tense & nursing painful after a difficult birth

Our son had a tough birth. It often hurt me when he nursed, especially on one side. Jonah frequently seemed uncomfortable and didn’t like being touched on one side of his neck. After our first session I realized it didn’t hurt to nurse anymore. After our second session, Jonah’s digestive system was much better, and he started sleeping better. Jonah now is much more relaxed and content in his body. –  Alicia Dunning

Nursing joy

Nursing sessions were shorter and settled into a rhythm, so we all got more sleep after your home visit.
