“I can’t thank you enough for all your help with all of my kids. I would not have been able to breastfeed without your help, especially the twins! Thank you for all your tips, advice and time. It was a pleasure working with you.”
“Hi! R will be 6 months old tomorrow and I can't believe how fast the time has flown! I was thinking about you and how helpful and calming you were for us and I wanted to say thank you! Look how big she's getting!! Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!
“Thank you for everything you did! The baby is doing great and was 14lbs at his 3 month check up. We are still exclusively breastfeeding!
“I know it's been a while since we last saw each other but I wanted to let you know that the baby is just about 6 months. With your help, I was able to exclusively breastfeed him for the past couple of months. It was a challenge when I went back to work 2 months ago, but with the tips you taught me, I was able to maintain my supply. He has reflux so being able to feed him breastmilk only helped alleviate some of his symptoms. I can't believe I'm going on 6 months now and will go past that! I didn't think I would last even 2 months! It's tiring but it's so rewarding looking at his cheeks and knowing that's all me. I attached a photo so you can see how happy and healthy he is. That has a lot to do with your help. Thanks again for all of your help. Hope all is well.
"My husband and I signed up for Pauline’s Natural Childbirth classes not really knowing what to expect. I had a lot of friends who recommended Pauline’s classes but I honestly wasn’t sure I wanted to try to attempt a natural childbirth because I was afraid of pain and stories I heard from other moms. Pauline’s classes reviewed the basics of labor and delivery, focusing on natural birth but also taught us about medical interventions when necessary. Her classes and approach to labor was so positive, it made me think about my attitude toward birth. I started to think about my birth plan and what I wanted (although knowing I had to be flexible). She was so helpful in teaching us about doulas, relaxation techniques, and different positions for laboring- all which I used during labor. The course gave me the confidence and education I needed to have a natural birth and a healthy baby, even after a very long labor process. I never could have done it without her! The childcare and breastfeeding classes were also extremely valuable and I learned so much those two weeks as well. My son ended up having issues with breastfeeding so of course I called Pauline to help. I called her ready to give up because I was so frustrated he wouldn’t latch and I was in physical pain from engorgement and my personal (cheap) breast pump. Over the phone she gave me a plan of action until she could meet with me in person ASAP. I gave it one last shot and followed her advice to rent a hospital pump until she could see me. Thanks to that pump and her advice, I was able to prep my body for breastfeeding and my son successfully latched on with a nipple shield the next day. Now we are successfully breastfeeding and I have Pauline to thank for that!"
"Thank you again for all of your wisdom and patient coaching that led to 11.5 months of every 3 hours pumping and nightly bedtime nursing, even with a very low supply... Hard work and would never do any differently... Thank you so very much!"
"Hi Pauline! I just wanted to send a quick text to say THANK YOU! Thank you for your support and your guidance. Emma just turned one last month and she is a healthy, independent little girl! Thank you for helping me breastfeed. I started the process not sure if I was going to last a month, then I was stopping after 2, then at 6 months…and a year later I am still going. Thank you!"
So sorry for such a delayed response, I am working on weaning her from breastfeeding as per the plan you have suggested, so far so good! You are truly an awesome specialist, nurse and a guide. I value you.
"Pauline is a gift from God to new parents. The extent of her knowledge regarding pregnancy, childbirth and child rearing is astounding. My husband and I took the Natural Childbirth course, Infant Massage and the Child Safety- Infant CPR. With each course, we felt more and more prepared for the pending birth of our son Aidan. My husband, being European, doesn't trust Western medicine and I have no experience with Eastern medicine. Pauline was able to help us find a compromise with various subjects such as vaccinations and medicine for infants. Pauline is the most dedicated and genuine woman you will ever meet."

"Pauline's instruction in the Natural Childbirth classes and HypnoBirthing® classes gave me the confidence, knowledge, and calm that helped make my dream of a natural childbirth a reality. My son was almost 10 lbs, yet he came into the world drug free and nursed within minutes. All of Pauline's tips and how-to's enabled my husband to be the best coach I could ever hope for in the delivery room. We felt totally prepared and informed when the big day came. My labor was 13 1/2 hours long and I would do it again in a heartbeat."
