Client’s Feedback

Lactation RoomExcellentLactation Room4.9 Based on 33 reviews fromSee all reviewsLindsey UmlandtLindsey Umlandt ★★★★★ Met with Misty 1 week postpartum and her support and understanding was invaluable to my mental health when in a deep place of struggle. She was understanding and honest with me and so compassionate about helping me as a first time mom navigate what it means to feed my baby. I can’t recommend her and the Lactation Room enough for all your BF needs and questions as well as addressing struggles. Wish I had gone to them sooner but glad to have gone when I did. Thank you, Misty!Response from the ownerWhat a wonderful review! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience. We are thrilled Misty was able to provide the support you needed! Renate OzolinaRenate Ozolina ★★★★★ We had consultations at the Lactation Room (Rockville location, Mary and Alice were so great!!) while I was pregnant, to prepare for breastfeeding, then ran into issues early on and had a home visit/first meeting with Jenny (office location in Mount Airy) when our baby was just one week old. At that time I didn't think I could carry on with breastfeeding my baby, and was physically in pain and very disheartened. From the moment we met her, Jenny has been and continues to be such an amazing and helpful presence, she has seen us through the hardest times and made it possible for our son to be exclusively breastfed to 6 months of age at this point, feeling great about going for 6 more. She has introduced us to other specialists and is always so responsive and kind when we reach out with all kinds of questions and concerns. Jenny, we couldn't ever be where we are without you, and you are just fantastic, thank you so so so much for everything!!!Jennifer BonifantJennifer Bonifant ★★★★★ When I first came to the lactation room I was doubtful that I would be able to nurse my babies. They were premature (born at 34 weeks), had been tube fed, and were not home from the NICU until about one month old. Jenny helped to teach me how to position the girls properly and make sure they were latching. I was able to nurse one of my girls for 7 months. The other one still had some trouble with her sucking and swallowing but Jenny also helped me to feel more comfortable with bottle feeding and pacing the baby. Both of my babies are healthy weights and growing! Before we came to the lactation room they were under 5 pounds. Thank you so much Jenny and services of TLR!Heather RegisterHeather Register ★★★★★ Absolutely recommend this place and their services.I’m seeing Jenny to help with my oversupply, so that I can get back to breast-feeding, rather than exclusively pumping. I already see a change after the very first visit. Everyone has been so incredibly helpful and readily available to help. I’ve had several questions since my visit and it’s literally a matter of minutes before jenny gets back to me. Before I met with her, I was emailing back-and-forth with Brittney over the Christmas holiday and she even responded to my email on Christmas! So very grateful for these ladies… as a first time mom, I felt the weight lifted from my shoulders after my very first visit.Response from the ownerThank you so much for the lovely review of your experience. We appreciate that you have taken the time to share your experience with us and so thankful that you are receiving the support you need! ana carolina iriarte balcazarana carolina iriarte balcazar ★★★★★ Just amazing! Mary has been wonderful from minute 1. I thought I would not be able to breastfeed but she made it possible for me 🙂 I also had the pleasure to meet Ania who went over the tongue tie and procedure in detail, recommending exercises and next steps. I recommend this place 100%Isabelle SpicerIsabelle Spicer ★★★★★ My son was born with a lip tie and tongue tie and this made breastfeeding painful for me. Through Mary Bailey's support and a lot of hard work I am now able to breastfeed pain free. Mary was kind, calm, responsive, and very supportive. We are so grateful to have worked with her.Response from the ownerThank you so much for taking time to share your experience. We strive to ensure each family we get the opportunity to work with feels supported along their feeding journey. We appreciate your trust in our services. allison tyeryarallison tyeryar ★★★★★ As a first time mom I felt so lost when it came to breastfeeding. I started working with Misty at the Lactation Room last year when my daughter was born and I truly can’t say enough positive things about her and the other IBCLC’s at the Lactation Room! My daughter had a lip and tongue tie that her pediatrician overlooked, after struggling with nursing, and meeting with Misty, she confirmed it. After we got my daughter’s ties released, Misty helped us with latching and ensuring she was feeding effectively. I just wanted to say I am so grateful for all the help, and thankful! To any mom who is struggling or lost, check out the Lactation Room!Molly HMolly H ★★★★★ Not just if your breast feeding. Learned so much and feel much more confident with all things about feeding my newborn. Jessica and Cam are baby whisperers. If your insurance covers, go. Just go.Response from the ownerThank you so much for the lovely reply! We appreciate you taking the time to share about the experience you had working with your consultants, and are even more thrilled that you are feeling so much more confident feeding your baby! Sarah HarringSarah Harring ★★★★★ I can't speak highly enough about the Lactation Room, specifically our consultant Mary! As a new mom, it is overwhelming to try learning how to breastfeed before your little one arrives and even more difficult when you are in the hospital and have no clue what to do. My family met with Mary the day after we got home and it was instantly a game changer. She spent that first session helping us latch, observing the feeding, walking us through what a typical feeding might look like, giving tips, and answering all of our questions. From there, we scheduled follow-ups on an as needed basis and had access to a messaging portal for any questions that could be answered without an in-person meeting. Mary was amazing with quick responses and reliable information. The added plus of home visits was even more convenient as she could help us in our own space and we didn't need to venture out if we didn't want to. As much as I wish my journey was easy, feeding proved to be a challenge with our little one including a tongue and lip tie, but Mary was there every step of the way giving encouragement, referrals, and resources. We felt like she became a part of our family for those first few months and saw just how caring, compassionate, and committed she is to her work. If you are a new mom and planning to breastfeeding, don't do it alone and seek help early! Even if everything goes great, it's always nice to have a resource available.Isabelle RaquinIsabelle Raquin ★★★★★ I wholeheartedly recommend lactation room and particularly my consultant Dawn. She has a wealth of knowledge, and not just about breastfeeding. I could talk to her about anything baby/mother related. She was patient, kind, extremely helpful and encouraging. I felt that she understood me and my baby, and that she cared about making my breastfeeding experience a success. I don’t think I would be breastfeeding my baby right now if it was not for her.Brittany FreetBrittany Freet ★★★★★ The lactation room is a fantastic resource for families seeking support in their lactation and postpartum journey. Highly recommend!Katie SpaniolKatie Spaniol ★★★★★ I went to Lactation Room in Mt. Airy. I saw Jenny Busbey, RN, BSN, IBCLC for all of my appointments and she was so sweet and absolutely fantastic! My baby had a tongue tie and lip tie. She severely traumatized (deep cracks, severe bruising, ulcerations, etc.) my nipples while trying to nurse at the hospital. By the time we got home I just couldn’t even try to nurse anymore from the pain and had to start pumping, but my dream was to exclusively breastfeed so I was crushed! I thought we would never be able to breast feed and there were a lot of tears shed.At our first visit with Lactation Room Jenny did a very thorough consultation and came up with a personalized plan for my baby, recommending additional medical professionals (i.e. for tongue and lip tie removal) as indicated and giving me words of encouragement when I needed them most. I’m so happy to report that every week my baby’s nursing improved so much and at 5 weeks post-partum we are exclusively breast feeding! The bonding time while nursing my baby has been so special and I’m so thankful we got here. It just took a little time, perseverance and expert help 😊 Jenny also gave me advice for pumping milk effectively and safely when I return to work in a few weeks! I have several friends who also went to Jenny for help with breastfeeding and all told me how amazing she was - they were so right! The mom tribe knows best! 😁 The Mt. Airy location for Lactation Room is clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated, and I love that they are able to do home visits as well - it was so nice right after my c-section to not have to leave the comfort of home.If you are hoping to breast feed and need help, even if you’re worried it will never happen like I was that first night home from the hospital, reach out to Lactation Room before giving up! And I cannot recommend Jenny enough!! 💕Response from the ownerThank you so much for using Lactation Room and for the lovely review. We are thrilled that your experience with Jenny was so helpful! We appreciate your trust in our care. Lyndsay BevardLyndsay Bevard ★★★★★ Jenny did so much more than just help us with our breastfeeding journey, she truly changed the trajectory of my twins’ lives! She referred me to other resources to help with lip and tongue ties, as well as torticollis. She validated my feelings and concerns and genuinely shared excitement in our successes. She assisted with my pumping schedule. She made sure I felt confident in our future after our time at Lactation Room was done, and has even checked in with us to make sure we are still doing alright! I went from being 2 months postpartum and my babies never being able to latch, to 3 months in and successfully feeding both of them in one sitting without supplementing. I know we wouldn’t be where we are today without her and for that I will be forever grateful. Thanks so much, Jenny!Alexzandra CockerhamAlexzandra Cockerham ★★★★★ Sarah and her team at Lactation Room are great!! Easy to talk to and you can tell she really cares about helping you find the best plan for you and your baby. Highly recommend!allison tyeryarallison tyeryar ★★★★★ As a first time mom, the Lactation Room really helped with my breastfeeding journey! Misty was wonderful and able to confirm my daughter having oral ties. Once we had her ties released, we met with Misty weekly to ensure breastfeeding would continue to work for us. Highly recommend to anyone looking for support!Christina KulpChristina Kulp ★★★★★ I have nothing but amazing things to say about Lactation Room. I found out about them through Strong Ties, as they work together to ensure the best results for the lip and tongue tie revision. Diane is who we saw and she is amazing! She is friendly, organized, thorough, and quick respond whenever you have questions. She truly brought so much peace into my breastfeeding journey along with Strong Ties, and Salt and Light chiropractics. What is great is that they all stay in touch and work together! Our baby had reflux issues, and it is a night and day difference for him after having worked with all 3 places. I never had to worry about transferring information from place to place, they knew us by name is treated us very well.Response from the ownerThank you so much for taking your time to leave us such a lovely review! We love hearing your feedback and we are so happy to hear that your experience was what you wanted and found to be helpful. Lactation Room strongly believes in a collaborative approach to care and feels it always allows us to keep our focus on the most important thing, which is you and your baby! M ChuM Chu ★★★★★ Everyone has been super nice! My baby had a tongue and lip tie, and I met with several of the LCs there plus then dr Khurana (plus her super helpful assistant Barbara), and we even did some craniosacral therapy with Leslie Bergmann. They were all very friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. I really felt the care for myself and my baby. The only thing I would have changed is more recommendations for pumping - measure flange size precisely, try silicone flanges etc- which I ended up discovering on my own later on. their focus was more on the breast feeding more than pumping , which was also my goal at first but ended up becoming more of a pumping journey with time. But overall they’ve been wonderfulResponse from the ownerHi! Thank you so much for taking the time to give us feedback. We are so happy to hear you had good experience and are so grateful you trusted Lactation Room with your family. MARYAM MOEINIMARYAM MOEINI ★★★★★ These ladies...these amazing ladies...they are truly what any new mother needs. I have had such a challenge breastfeeding my baby that I was literally one step away from putting her on formula. I felt so isolated because it seemed there is nothing anyone can do to take the pain and the discomfort away on top of feeling guilty 100% of the time. Until I found lactation room team and Jessica. More impatient I got, more patient they became and they stayed with me until they made sure the problem was solved. And now I am breastfeeding exclusively and I could not be happier!Adhavan JeyachandranAdhavan Jeyachandran ★★★★★ Clean place and very easy to find. Knowledgeable IBCLCs.Ramona ZeenderRamona Zeender ★★★★★ I highly recommend any new mom to reach out to the Lactation Room for assistance. I wish I knew about them three years ago when my first child was born. Thankfully a friend recommended me this time and I was able to receive wonderful support and help from Jessica and Mary. Jessica initially met with me and was so calm, kind and helpful. I scheduled a follow up session as I was still having some troubles when I got home and met with Mary. Mary provided the same care Jessica did. They both sent follow up messages giving me all of the information we talked about with helpful pictures and videos. I really am so thankful for my time there. My son now is almost 2 months old and we are doing great with nursing! Such a difference experience then I had with my first born.Isaac ColbertIsaac Colbert ★★★★★ Sarah, the owner of Lactation Room, has single handedly made breastfeeding successful for me and my 5th baby! When nursing wasn't going well at first, Sarah became my "Zoom-a-professional" and was able to walk and talk me through our initial challenges. Sarah shared her wisdom to get us through some very tough nursing sessions and an unhappy baby. Ultimately she connected us with a Pediatric Dentist and it was determined that my son had a lip tie as well as a tongue tie. I was hesitant to proceed with the release because I felt like I was being selfish. Sarah didn't persuade me one way or the other; she simply presented me with research and anecdotal evidence so that I could make the decision on my own. As a healthcare worker myself, that was VERY important and made me feel EXTRA confident in Sarah's professional viewpoint and manner. Without Sarah, I would have likely given up breastfeeding; so having her expertise has been invaluable!! I am forever grateful for her!Kathy GmeinerKathy Gmeiner ★★★★★ Jenny has been such a great resource for our growing family! She always makes me feel at ease and is so helpful when it comes to quickly identifying breastfeeding issues. We’ve seen her with both of our daughters and she helped us deal with a serious tongue and lip tie with our oldest. I recommend her to all of my friends and trust her opinion and expertise!Jennifer GriffisJennifer Griffis ★★★★★ Lactation Room was so helpful to me and my baby and helped us work through the difficulties we had. They were knowledgeable, kind and had a practical approach for us to follow. I had a second consult and we covered how to incorporate bottles and pumping for my return to work. We visited them in the office and really appreciated all of their safety precautions they are taking during Covid to keep us safe. They take our temperatures before we arrive, wear PPE and are keeping the amount of people in the office limited to avoid exposure. I am so happy I reached out to them and would highly recommend! They definitely helped us get set up to have a successful breastfeeding journey.Danny BarfieldDanny Barfield ★★★★★ We called Lactation Room for help with feeding our baby and we were thrilled that they offer Virtual appointments! We live in another state but have heard great things about the lactation support they provide. Sarah was professional, kind and did a great job helping us work through milk supply concerns and gave my girlfriend tips for how to get the baby to latch better. After working on the suggestions we definitely saw improvement. If you need help, no matter where you live, call Lactation Room!Ashley Hogan TjadenAshley Hogan Tjaden ★★★★★ Jenny was kind and supportive! Lactation Room is an amazing resource for Montgomery County. We saw Jenny once a week for a month as we worked to wean off the nipple shield and correct a poor latch. She helped to identify a tongue and lip tie. Following the procedure, she helped us with the mouth exercises for healing and continued to help with the latch. She patiently answered all the questions I had at each visit and provided a lot of useful information. We are still working on towards enjoyable pain-free breastfeeding but Jenny certainly helped us a lot on our journey! My only complaint was that my husband was unable to join me at the visits due to restrictions for COVID safety. I understand the need for such restrictions but worry that not including both parents in the process has the potential to lead to a reduced length of time breastfeeding.Mallory GrimesMallory Grimes ★★★★★ If you’re looking for exceptional lactation support, you’ve found it! As a first time mom, breastfeeding has been my number one priority. In July, I met with Jenny for an intro to all things breastfeeding. She covered everything and patiently answered all of my questions. She truly taught me everything I know, while also educating me on what to expect and how to troubleshoot various scenarios. My son was born healthy in August. It’s November, and I’ve had Jenny’s support at least once every three weeks since he arrived. Our breastfeeding journey hasn’t been easy — many people have encouraged me to quit and “just go to formula” (including my pediatrician!). Jenny has PATIENTLY worked with us, both in person and virtually, to guide us through. I’ve messaged her late at night in tears, and she’s always responded promptly and with a ton of strategies. Whenever I feel like I should “have this down by now,” I’m comforted by Jenny’s support and wealth of knowledge. She has never made me feel bad or like I’m doing something wrong. In fact, working with her has been quite the opposite. Now I’m convinced that my son will randomly struggle, just so we can go back into the office to see Jenny! If you are looking for holistic, pro-mama and baby lactation group, don’t hesitate to reach out. It isn’t easy getting the support you need during a pandemic, but Lactation Room has it down.Danielle AdamDanielle Adam ★★★★★ I went to the lactation room after having trouble weaning my baby from a shield. I met with Mary one when my baby was about two weeks old time and she gave a bigger shield to help him learn to open his mouth more and taught both me and my baby quite a few things to make breastfeeding more successful. We lraftic w at home then a little over a week later we went back for our follow up and were able to show her our success and get some more insight. I recommend mom who is new at breastfeeding to visit The Lactation Room, and of possible, see Mary. I should also mention that I went during COVID and felt very safe. Mary met us outside, took our temperature before we even left our car, and followed COVID precautions carefully the entire visit.Baruch CapptauberBaruch Capptauber ★★★★★ Knowledgeable, thoughtful and compassionate lactation experts and staffNicole ZimmermanNicole Zimmerman ★★★★★ Jenny is amazing. She has worked with us for the past 9 weeks. She goes above and beyond the one hour visits. I always have a bunch of questions and the first couple weeks as a new mom where hard for me. She always answered quickly and never loss patience and always gave me the time I needed. Everyone else I have come in contact with at the lactation room is great as well. Leslie the PT person was extremely sweet and calm and helped us as much as she could given our situation. Sara and Dr. Khurana did her tongue tie procedure. Dr. K also went above and beyond and answered us into the night day of procedure. Even the admin staff Katie and Barbara are lovely to work with. I highly recommend everyone there. We still have a ways to go in our breastfeeding journey but I know I will be supported with this staff.Mindy ChaconMindy Chacon ★★★★★ My son recently had a tongue and lip tie correction. I live in another state so Sarah set up a virtual consult with me. She showed me some stretches to work on and sent additional material. She was very knowledgeable, helpful and understanding with my questions. Definitely recommend, no matter where you live!Michelle CurryMichelle Curry ★★★★★ Video consultation works surprisingly well! It was so wonderfully helpful to be able to talk with a friendly, knowledgeable lactation consultant from home. She was able to answer my questions and give advice as well as show me exactly what she was talking about and see me and my baby all through the video conferencing portal. I was so thankful my baby and I were able to get the help we need without leaving the house!Victoria “Tori” PattersonVictoria “Tori” Patterson ★★★★★ Great and knowledgeable staff! They were the 3rd lactation service I’ve experienced and provided the most individualized assistance. They listened and integrated my feedback into their suggestions, which I had not experienced- it helped to ease a lot of the frustrations my son and I were having.js_loader
