"I love how she breaks down care plan for each member of the dyad separately and in simple terms so as to not overwhelm. Love Melissa's Courses. She is such a gift to the lactation community."


"The speaker was dynamic and I liked that we had a challenge - 3 cases of low milk production to solve. Liked that she compared us with detectives because it really is like that, trying to figure out what is happening and what advices to give."


"Thank you for providing case studies which were not too easy, not too hard, but just right! "


"This was a great critical thinking course! It built upon things I already knew related to milk supply, but made me think deeply about multiple ways to create a care plan. It also reminded me that sometimes low milk supply is related to multiple root causes not just one."


"Love your teaching and love your reasonable prices. I enjoy your stuff more than others out there. Keep them coming please! I have left the hospital and this is all new to me and you just make sense to me. Thank you for your teaching heart and your handouts. So helpful!"


"I loved the wheel visual you added in your slides. It really helped me have a great understanding of the factors at play in low milk supply and I could really resonate with that for one particular client who struggled with low supply despite some changes we made."
