She loves getting to spend her day seeing all different nutrition and lactation concerns, and helping her patients meet their goals both with breastfeeding their babies or overall nutrition. Nothing feels better to Jenna than making small changes resulting in big smiles.
“The lactation nurses are wonderful! We saw two different educators and both are extremely knowledgeable, supportive, compassionate and amazing. If it weren’t for them, I would have given up on breastfeeding!”
