"Rosalie is an excellent lactation consultant and I would highly recommend her. She is very knowledgeable about breastfeeding and infants in general. She is very professional, warm, kind and patient, which is what someone needs when discussing the intimate details of breastfeeding your newborn.
Nursing can be challenging when you bring your baby home from the hospital and have no idea what to expect in the early months. Rosalie provided valuable information that assuaged our fears and also great strategies going forward.
You can tell that Rosalie loves her job; she is very good at it. I would feel very comfortable calling her if I have any more questions in the future."
"Rosalie is an absolute gem as a Lactation Consultant! As a first time new mommy, I was completely lost when it came to breastfeeding my newborn son. Physically drained from the birth and severely sleep deprived from those early days, my whole body hurt especially my breasts that were engorged with milk. I felt completely exhausted and mentally defeated. I wasn't sure if my desire to be a breastfeeding mother was actually going to come to fruition. I was struggling. Fortunately, for me Rosalie came into our life when my son was just 9 days old. Rosalie came to my house, seeing what is probably very common sight for her, an overwhelmed new mother, who really did't have a good grasp on this natural process. I don't remember what was said in those early days, I just recall how much her supportive words, her gentle touch and her warm nurturing presence put me at ease. I remember feeling after her first visit that breastfeeding my son would be a reality for me.
Rosalie came to my house every week for the first six weeks to not only to monitor my progress but also, my son's. She helped me build an ample supply of milk. She identified my son's tongue tie and referred us to a wonderful physician to treat it. She gave me additional resources to turn for information and support. She helped build my confidence breastfeeding.
More recently when my son was 3 months old, I reached to Rosalie when I was experiencing a lot of breast pain and an uneven supply of milk. Rosalie, came quickly to my house to identify the problem and come up with an action plan. I was so thankful, to have her as my main resource when it comes to breastfeeding. I knew that breastfeeding is natural process but, it definitely does not come easy. It's a learned skill by both mother and baby and I am so thankful for Rosalie to guide me in this journey." - A.O.
"We had a great experience with Rosalie as our Lactation Consultant. The two months following the arrival of our twins Rosalie visited us in our home several times to help us get off to a good start breastfeeding as well as help address some issues including severe pain, poor latch and tongue tie. Rosalie has a very warm and caring nature and is a great educator. She is at such ease helping both mom and babies. She spent ample time with us at every appointment and thoroughly observed/evaluated each of our twins and provided us with practical solutions to make breastfeeding easier as well as community resources. Breastfeeding can be a challenge for many and even more so with twins. Rosalie gave us confidence to continue and for that we are very grateful to provide our babies with the experience and benefits of breastfeeding. Our twins are now 3 months and we are still going strong!" - Kelly & Derek K.
"Rosalie was the first lactation consultant to spot our son's tongue tie. Although we had met several lactation consultants before, no one else had found it. Rosalie is extremely knowledgeable and easy to talk to. She gave us great advice and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to any new parents. She was fantastic!" - P.J.
"I was very happy to come across Rosalie when looking for a lactation consultant. Having her come to my house was so convenient, which is very much appreciated during the stressful time of new motherhood! She was easy to get in touch with, came prepared, and is very personable. She was great with my baby too and I was very comfortable working with her. We were working through some latching issues, but nothing major and my son was gaining weight well, so even though we only met with Rosalie twice, I felt she provided great insight and a lot of peace of mind that we were all on the right track to successful breastfeeding. She answered my questions and concerns, and I really appreciated that she followed up to check in with us after our appointment." - A.B.
"I cannot recommend Rosalie enough, Betsy and i would not have come so far if it wasn't for her weekly visits to our home and a set plan to follow each week. Nursing was extremely challenging for my baby and I to begin with. She had tongue-tie, a high palate and we both developed thrush - but with Rosalie's expertise, help and guidance we are now able to nurse without the nipple shield and the SNS. Plus i am able to feed Betsy pain free. Thank you Rosalie!!!!!" - R.B.
"I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Rosalie at MOM+BABY. She was easily accessible and available. She quickly scheduled with me and came out to see me, which we all know is sooo important when you are looking for a lactation consultant. She was very personable and great with me and my son. She definitely put my mind at ease with her approach and her knowledge base. After having lactation consultants at the hospital, as well as nurses and my pediatrician check my son for any tongue ties, everyone said he had no ties and was latching perfectly, I was at a loss for what was going on that he wasn't transferring and it was so painful. Within the very first part of our first visit Rosalie told me that he did in fact have a tongue tie and referred me to a specialist to get it revised. She was correct. I saw the specialist, the tie was clipped, and our nursing journey was saved! Again, cannot say enough about her competence and bedside manner, she found what no one else did and really helped us in a big way. Thank you Rosalie!" - A.L.
"I was reluctant at first to see a lactation consultant. I had been lucky enough to have had two positive breastfeeding experiences with my first two kids. I thought I had this breastfeeding down pat. Then my little number three came and she was tongue tied, coughing, choking, and spitting up. But because she was gaining weight like a champ, I thought we could just push through and get it to work. But when I was honest with myself, I knew my breastfeeding relationship with my baby wasn’t as positive as it could be. My low point was when I got mastitis. So I called Rosalie. She was kind and oh-so-patient. She really worked with me to find the root of my issues. She was able to identify things that I couldn’t. When I was deciding whether to have my daughter get a frenectomy, Rosalie never told me yes or no. She gave me information and asked me questions so that I could come to my own decision and be confident with my decision. I never felt judged, or rushed, or ordered around. She really was there to help me and my baby develop a healthy and happy nursing relationship. My baby and I would not be as happy as we are today in our breastfeeding relationship without Rosalie. I absolutely recommend Rosalie in a heartbeat!" - E.B.
The initial weeks of nursing my newborn daughter were more difficult than I could have imagined, full of physical and emotional discomfort and stress about whether I would be able to nurse - something I had been looking forward to my entire pregnancy. After weeks of struggling with the pain and stress (while also healing from an urgent c-section), my husband and I reached out to Rosalie for help, and she provided the support and guidance that we needed during such a difficult time.
Rosalie is incredibly responsive, professional, knowledgeable and kind, and most importantly for my husband and I, her focus was on helping us find what worked for us and our baby girl, based on our individual priorities and needs. In the midst of a whirlwind of unsolicited advice from well-meaning family and friends telling us what was right or wrong or what we should or shouldn’t do, Rosalie’s approach was refreshing and helped me build confidence, allowing me to learn to trust my instincts.
Rosalie helped us develop a plan that allowed me to manage and ultimately eliminate the pain I was experiencing, as well as increasing my milk supply and also worked with us on techniques that helped our daughter to learn to transfer milk more effectively. After just a handful of visits with Rosalie, I was nursing my daughter with natural ease and without discomfort or stress for me or my daughter. Rosalie’s guidance and support helped transform an experience that had been stressful and painful to one that is now comfortable and enjoyable for me and my growing baby girl.

Rosalie is amazing! Helped me meet all my goals
Rosalie is seriously amazing and we wouldn't have continued our breastfeeding journey without her. She is professional, knowledgeable and amazing with babies. She's the best!
Lisa Britton Nov 8, 2018
So worth it!
Rosalie is a true expert. She gave encouragement where needed and tips and tricks and advice where we didn't even know we needed it! When and how to bottle feed, what to expect as far as weight gain, and local resources for new moms. I highly recommend her (and will be contacting her again for myself when I go back to work!) Thanks Rosalie!
Christiana S Oct 29, 2018
Rosalie is the best
Rosalie has been so wonderful. She’s the reason that my baby has begun breastfeeding. Without her support and expertise, I would’ve given up and we would be formula feeding. I highly recommend her and have already provided her info to several friends.
Katie C Oct 18, 2018
Rosalie is Amazing!
I have seen Rosalie two years in a row for two kids born back to back. Kids has different issues - first kid had trouble nursing with an oversupply. Second kid was born with a high palate and tongue tie. She has kept me calm and confident through both breastfeeding journeys. She is knowledgeable, kind, patient and thorough. I highly recommend!!!!
Lauren F Oct 4, 2018
Reassuring and knowledgeable
I've met with Rosalie several times with breastfeeding and bottle concerns.She's been very helpful and encouraging, and identified practical next steps to address my concerns at each visit.
Elisa Fromboluti Sep 25, 2018
Very understanding and knowledgeable
Rosalie helps me with my breastfeeding journey. I'm glad I found. It's our second meeting, and as usual, my questions were answered. Thank you so much, Rosalie!
Nira Nasirov Kosti Sep 20, 2018
Rosalie is amazing and so helpful!
So happy I found Rosalie to support my breastfeeding journey. Accessible and so helpful! She gave me practical and actionable solutions and handled my baby as if she were her own. Thanks Rosalie!
Lisa Britton Sep 14, 2018
Set my mind at ease
Rosalie was extremely thorough, answering all my questions and thoughtfully sussing out all relevant information for her evaluation. She is obviously extremely knowledgeable and it was a pleasure working with her. I have a clear plan to support successful breastfeeding with my baby (weak latch and tongue tie) following our first visit. I look forward to a follow up as I can tell what an invaluable resource she will be.
Justine L Sep 5, 2018
In-home visits with Rosalie
Rosalie has been a dependable, helpful, and knowledgeable professional. I’ve worked with her with both of our babies and she has been the most helpful lactation consultant I’ve met. I would recommend her without hesitation.
Jennifer O Aug 30, 2018
Every understanding and knowledgeable
Rosalie was very knowledgeable. She helped me to establish nurse/pump schedule for me as a part-time working mom of a 4 months old baby with weak suck. She also explained how to wean my baby of the nipple shield and it seems to be gradually working.
Nira Nasirov Kosti Aug 17, 2018
Rosalie is Rad
My son is struggling with a tongue tie which meant we had long feedings and fussiness. It was so easy to book an appt with Rosalie, she texted when she was on her way, and arrived ready to help. She has a kind and warm presence, especially when she was handling my son. She validated my feelings, and offered some great advice for managing while I waited for an appt with the dentist. Not only that, she provided a care plan with lots of helpful links that I reference frequently.
Julia O Aug 14, 2018
Rosalie was great! Extremely knowledgeable, personable and helpful with my breastfeeding journey. Highly recommend!
Tara S Jul 18, 2018
Very helpful and validating!
Rosalie answered all my questions and was very supportive and affirming. Her care plan was informative and I felt much more confident having met with her.
Alice Inacker Jul 10, 2018
Rosalie gave great information and I didn't feel rushed during our session. All my questions were answered and I felt confident in the breastfeeding routine she outlined.
Meghan Kurz May 24, 2018
Rosalie came to our home and took her time assessing our entire routine. She gave us so much information and was so thorough - it wasn't just about breastfeeding, she went over general feeding habits, pumping and more. The care plan she emailed us afterwards recapped everything we discussed and contained more links to resources to learn more. We are much more confident as first time parents after our visit with Rosalie.
Meghan Walsh Mar 29, 2018
I love working with Rosalie. She is supportive, knowledgeable, and encouraging. I will definitely reach out to her again if I need a Lactation Consultant.
Kathryn Steffy Mar 29, 2018
We met with another lactation consultant before Rosalie and she was helpful but left us with a lot of questions still. After meeting with Rosalie I felt like we had a great plan in place, she left us with tons of resources, and I really felt like our struggles had been understood and addressed. I highly recommend her!
Angela L Mar 20, 2018
Rosalie was incredibly knowledgeable, pleasant and professional. It was a pleasure working with her. The consultation was extremely helpful and reassuring. Her report was a great reference tool and summation of her visit. I would highly recommend her.
Kate Grant Feb 24, 2018
Rosali is knowledgeable, kind, and personable. It was a pleasure to meet her. The report she sent afterward was thorough and easy to understand.
Jessica Hoffman Feb 23, 2018
I would highly recommend Rosalie to all mothers looking for breastfeeding support. She helped identify my daughter's tongue tie (which after getting fixed made a dramatic difference!) and offered valuable advice and resources for getting started with pumping and introducing a bottle. It was also so convenient to be able to book appointments online for home visits. Not having to worry about getting the baby out of the house in those early weeks, especially in the winter, was wonderful!
C.D. Feb 20, 2018
Rosalie is incredibly helpful, knowledgeable, and supportive. She has provided services after the birth of both of my children. I believe her advice and services were crucial to breastfeeding success with my first son, who experienced a tongue tie, lip tie, and a other issues. She not only provided advice, but connected me with resources in the area for additional help. She focused on our goals and what works for us! I absolutely recommend her to anyone!
Kathryn Steffy Jan 17, 2018
Helpful and experienced!
Rosalie was wonderful on our home visit. I had visited another lactation consultant but came away feeling discouraged, with unanswered questions. Rosalie helped me figure out ways to alleviate nipple pain and improve latch/positioning. She also coached me through skills I would need for a return to full-time work/pumping. I felt that she was truly listening and had practical solutions for my concerns. I would definitely recommend any new mama looking for feedback, help, or encouragement!
Lillian Otte Dec 18, 2017
Rosalie is so encouraging and knowledgeable. My daughter and I have had a difficult nursing relationship because of painful reflux and other issues, and Rosalie has lots of very practical suggestions. Would highly recommend her help to any nursing mother.
e.m. Dec 6, 2017
Felt totally comfortable talking about the issues I was experiencing and having her in our house. She also offered advice on other topics as our conversation developed and made me feel confident I was ok and my baby was normal and doing great! She helped settle the new parent nerves. Only wish I would have had her appointment a few weeks earlier.
Emily D Dec 4, 2017
Personable, professional, knowledgeable. So so so happy I had her come! Even though I thought things were going well (boy was I wrong), her visit would have been great and informative either way.
Laura Holt Nov 30, 2017
Caring and personalized support
We met Rosalie for the first time yesterday for support with breastfeeding our newborn twins. We had a sense that feeding was going pretty well but had some weight gain issues. She both encouraged what we were already feeling good about and gave us some incredibly practical insights into how to improve. She is obviously gifted and cares about new parents and babies. Looking forward to learning more from her.
J.C. Oct 20, 2017
So glad I decided to meet with Rosalie!
I was on the fence about setting up appt as every time I had an issue it seemed to resolve itself before I could find time to book. But I finally went for it, just to get more information on my and my baby's anatomy, get some guidance on managing cluster feeding, and mainly to establish a relationship with a professional for future needs I may have. So glad I did. Rosalie was friendly, professional, thorough, and supportive. I'd recommend her to all.
Gina V Sep 20, 2017
I was really struggling with breastfeeding but wanted to stick with it. Rosalie was positive, encouraging, and extremely knowledgeable. She gave me actionable steps to take immediately and helped me to make sense of the vast amount of information and advice I had already gotten from doctors, nurses, and other moms.
O.E. Sep 17, 2017
listened well and was very helpful at diagnosis, treatment plan and support! Happy to have met Rosalie!
M.J. Sep 14, 2017
I feel so lucky to have gotten in touch with Rosalie. Her calming spirit and ways of encouragement while helping you learn to feed your child has already been such a stepping stone. I look forward to working more with rosalie in gaining confidence breastfeeding.
H.K. Sep 11, 2017
Kind, knowledgeable, and encouraging!
Rosalie is professional, knowledgeable, and efficient as well as wonderfully patient, nonjudgmental, and kind. She addresses all my questions, offers advice in a direct but gentle manner, and brings great skill and experience to every interaction I have with her. I truly appreciate her reassuring, good humored nature, and I feel that she is genuinely on my team, which rocks. Each visit with her builds my confidence.
D.H. Sep 6, 2017
Thorough and knowledgeable
Rosalie was a breath of fresh air. She made me feel comfortable and relaxed. I did not feel rushed like I have in the past with other LCs. There wasn't a question she couldn't answer or thoughtfully explain. After our visit she sent me paperwork to reference, which is a huge help. I felt confident when she left. We are very thankful.
Elyse S Sep 6, 2017
Rosalie was very patient, knowledgeable and helpful. Once she left I felt way more comfortable in handling my oversupply of breastmilk. She verbally explained concepts, as well as visually explained concepts, which was very helpful. Her care plan was very detailed and assisted as I guide for things that I kah have forgot!
J.K. Aug 22, 2017
Expert and Approachable
Rosalie is extremely knowledgeable, leverages her experience and science to build a customized plan. She is non-judgmental and supportive, and immediately put me at ease. She left me with clear strategies and goals to support more productive feedings with my baby. I highly recommend her to other new moms. As a bonus, her website is easy to use for scheduling and support.
E.K. Aug 9, 2017
Extremely knowledgeable and helpful.
Rosalie has been so helpful to my baby and me. She is knowledgeable and extremely helpful. I absolutely recommend her services to anyone looking for an experienced lactation consultant.
Elyse B Jul 22, 2017
Rosalie is amazing!
I had seen 3 lactation consultants before Rosalie and she's just the best. She's very knowledgeable, kind and supportive. I really liked that she made a plan based on my goals and encouraging me to be kind to myself. She made me feel empowered about the choices I make and optimistic about reaching my goals. I plan to continue working with her.
Marisol Ocampo Munoz Jul 20, 2017
Rosalie was a HUGE help with my son. She was the first one to tell me he had a tongue tie. Once it was fixed, she helped us with his latch, weight gain, and all of the other issues associated with a TT. She also helped me figure out how much milk I needed to pump in advance for a trip & helped me set up a plan to get it done! After a visit from Rosalie, I always felt so much better about how I was doing with breastfeeding. She helped me be more confident & eased my fears. I highly recommend her!
Holly Urban Jul 17, 2017
Rosalie was informative and patient and resolved my issues that day. I would highly recommend to anyone struggling with breast feeding.
tori mcnally Jun 21, 2017
Rosalie has been such a gift in these first few months of new motherhood. I reached out to her due to having issues with my letdown. My baby had issues staying latched - she'd pull off of me, screech, go back on. I was pouring milk... being new to all of this, I was overwhelmed. Rosalie was quick to help. She was a perfect coach, so knowledgeable and sweet and set my mind at ease. My little one has been thriving and breastfeeding is going much better. I highly recommend Rosalie!
Lauren F May 24, 2017
Great Consult and Follow Up
Rosalie was very informative and helpful during the consult. She explained things thoroughly and answered all my questions. Her follow up notes were detailed and comprehensive. I'm looking forward to scheduling more consults with her and would recommend her to other moms.
Courtney Mullen May 10, 2017
Rosalie is an excellent lactation consultant. I had trouble nursing in the hospital and stopped when I got home. By three weeks, I decided I wanted to try nursing and contacted Rosalie. She came to my house and was very understanding, suppprtive, and knowledgeable. Her advice was straightforward and she made a plan did me based on my comfort and goals. She wasn't judgemental. She's very personable and has a great bedside manner. I highly recommend her to anyone with nursing woes.
Stephanie S May 5, 2017
Rosalie is great! Patient, attentive, and very encouraging. She helped to calm my anxiety and frustration at our feeding difficulties, gave great and practical advice, and has started me on a plan that seems to so far work for me and my baby.
Isabel de Koninck May 4, 2017
Rosalie is very warm and friendly while being professional and knowledgeable. She answered all of my questions and provided tips and training that addressed all of my concerns. I would definitely recommend her to anyone with lactation questions or issues.
Natalie C Apr 28, 2017
Rosalie is excellent. She is thorough, professional and has tremendous bedside manner. She answered all my questions and spoke plainly and gave explanations to describe what she was saying so I completely understood. I would highly recommend Rosalie. She really helped & simplified my nursing experience.
Rachel Heydorn Mar 28, 2017
Rosalie was very patient and educating throughout her visit. She gave my husband and I the confidence we needed to keep on our preferred path.

Rosalie was very thorough in her visit with me and had helpful and valuable advice-I highly recommend her to others!
M.L. Feb 24, 2017
Rosalie helped my family and I through many transition periods during our breast feeding journey. From our first days at home, to dealing with a tongue tie, to check ins during maternity leave, to going back to work and to beginning to supplement - Rosalie has been an amazing resource and a supportive and caring guide. She has made our breast feeding journey enjoyable and special and I would highly recommend her to anyone in the Philadelphia area!
