UPDATE ABOUT COVID-19 (Coronavirus)


Due to the recent pandemic of covid-19, the Orange County Health Office has placed strict restrictions in place. Due to the fragile immunity of newborn infants, we at Justbreastfeeding feel it wise to only offer office visits on Wednesday mornings, and selected Saturdays. During your office visit, only Danielle and a receptionist will be in the office, with masks and gloves being worn at all times. Only one exam room is used, and is sterilized in-between families. A separate entrance and exit is given to keep all fluidity in place as we fight the spread of covid. We ask that mother, and one support person attend only, no siblings. Please wear a mask and wash your hands upon entry.  Virtual appointments are being offered 5 days a week at this time. Home visits are available upon request. In the meantime, the wellbeing of your sweet babies is priority. This will get better. I encourage all mommas to keep breastfeeding, as that will be your childs best advocate for staying healthy. Breastmilk is a super power. Hang in there, you got this.

    I can not thank Danielle enough! I am a first time mom and she helped me get my nursing relationship going when my daughter was first born. Most recently she helped me when I abruptly weaned my daughter. I sent her an email on a Sunday on desperation and she answered promptly! She is so knowledgable and thorough! Next child I will also be using Danielle as my lactation consultant.

    Danielle came to my house for a private consultation and I can not give her enough positive feedback. She was absolutely wonderful!! Her warm and caring nature make you and your baby feel very comfortable. She immediately was able to identify my nursing problems and address them directly. She was patient with my long list of questions, and helped me develop a plan to achieve my breastfeeding goals. I highly recommend Danielle if you are having trouble with breastfeeding.
