"Dr. Aaronson was super thorough and thoughtfully answered all of my questions. She has a lactation counselor in the office who can come to help with latching following the procedure, too. Dr. Aaronson is extremely caring and maternal – I’m the crazy person who won’t let anyone hold my baby but felt totally comfortable handing her over. She even has a cozy swaddle so baby is all snuggly for the procedure."
