What Lactation Consultants are saying about the Counseling Protocols

"Thank you for saving me the time to write these. And, better than I would have! This is just great"

- H.M., Morristown, NJ

"I have researched endlessly for the best protocols, templates, and any organizational information regarding my lactation practice and by far the best lactation tools I have found are the ones that Vergie (LER) has available to buy for $95. This tool kit is remarkable and fits my practice perfectly. The vast majority of my patients have complex issues with their babies or themselves, and the assessment tool covers just about everything I need, except for multiples. The coolest thing about these protocols is that you can add or delete anything you want:) I also appreciate how professional they are with appropriate language and the head to toe assessment that keeps one focused, especially when I am out in the home. One of the protocols includes a phone log, which is perfect. The package has over 40 protocols/handouts and she sends them to you via ZIP files. I really like to highlight the most impportant info, according to my patient needs. I thank Vergie and her team for making them available so that we don't have to struggle and reinvent the wheel."
