A MUST! Katie is so knowledgeable.

I’ve seen Katie at least five times throughout my nursing journey and every time I have left her office feeling empowered and confident in the plan we developed. My husband even came to one of my appointments and said he learned so much! I had some pretty significant challenges to tackle (baby born with a tooth and tongue tie) and I wouldn’t have been able to nurse as long as I did without the help and support from Katie. I’m so thankful for being recommended to Katie and I will definitely continue to reach out as my circumstances continue to change.

Katie was awesome! She put my mind at ease and helped me make sense of all of the breastfeeding information out there. After seeing her once I am already having a much easier time with breastfeeding.

TLDR: Katie Madden is the best. Part nurse, part coach, part friend, part tough-love older sister. Whatever your breastfeeding or pumping needs, Balanced Breastfeeding can help.My breastfeeding journey looked nothing like I'd hoped it would. My son and I had a rough hospital start, he ended up on formula, and long story short, my body didn't get the right signals to be able to make enough milk. By the time I went to see Katie Madden, it was too late to convince my body to make more -- but I credit work with Katie for saving my breastfeeding *relationship* (I breastfed along with formula through 10 months), for saving my sanity, and for helping me heal my image of myself as a mother. Also crucial, through Katie I met my motherhood "crew" in breastfeeding support group.Do yourself the favor and make the connection with Katie and Balanced Breastfeeding BEFORE you give birth -- she's hosting brunches for pregnant mamas. Then put her number in your speed dial. TRUST ME.

Katie Madden is a gift to Mamas everywhere. Her expertise in breastfeeding is truly unmatched, but she also offers compassion and empathy to women when they need it most. We are so lucky to have Balanced Breastfeeding in our community!

Katie Madden is such an amazing support for mamas everywhere! She has been such a gift in our lives. She has worked with us for 2+ years with both of our kids and made such a positive impact on our girls as well as our family. So thankful for all the services she provides!

Forget expensive strollers and bassinets and invest in Balanced Breastfeeding and Katie Madden. Katie is more than an expert in helping moms and babies breastfeed, she is an expert in truly understanding the support that is necessary for the pregnant woman, new mom and seasoned mom. Katie sees all moms, not only ones who are breastfeeding, she offers support groups that are all inclusive and she has truly been a saving grace in our lives. If you are expecting, know someone who is, or even if your a seasoned mom who could use some support (and who doesn’t need support) join the club. If you know someone who is expecting, this is by far the best gift that could ever be given. Thank you Katie for offering what no one else does!

Katie Madden is an amazing resource to all new and expecting mamas who plan to breastfeed. She helped me navigate through difficult experiences with both of my boys, and I honestly don’t know what I would have done without her. She is kind, compassionate, but also hilarious and will give it to you straight! She is the perfect example of a strong, working mother, and a role model to so many of us mamas. Do yourself a favor, and visit her website and/or the Clubhouse!! You won’t regret it :).

If you’re pregnant, go see Katie! I had to pump exclusively with my first after many failed attempts with LCs. Went to Katie BEFORE I had my second—we created a no pressure game plan and I was successful in nursing #2! She is supportive and does what is best for mama and baby—too often mom’s needs get overlooked. I can’t say enough good things about this woman! Go see her if you plan to breastfeed.

Beautiful new space in Independence Mall! I left my prenatal consult relieved and confident that Katie and I made a plan to address struggles feeding my first baby. So grateful for Katie's expertise along with her ability to listen-- REALLY listen-- to what I wanted to customize my next steps.
