Cześć, jestem Ania

Let me share a bit about my journey, and why I am so passionate about helping you through your infant feeding challenges.

As you may guess, my love for all things breastfeeding and mother support was born during my own journey as a new mother. Balancing nursing school with the demands of motherhood, I faced the same fears and uncertainties as you do. I remember the anxiety of wondering if my baby was getting enough milk, the frustration of painful latching, and the overwhelming flood of questions with each new challenge.

Nursing my four children,  taught me some hard lessons about patience, persistence, love and pain, but it also taught me about love, joy and the unbreakable bond that comes from a successful infant feeding experience.  Currently nursing a toddler, I can easily relate to your experience as you navigate each stage of your own feeding journey.

My decision to become a lactation consultant was solidified as I advanced in my nursing career, working in maternity and labor and delivery. Nothing gave me greater joy than helping new mothers nurse successfully for the very first time. I became an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and spent over 15 years helping more than 5000 families overcome their breastfeeding struggles. Transitioning into private practice, I brought my holistic, empathetic approach to a more personalized level of care.

Every family I work with brings a unique set of challenges and goals. Whether it’s a mother anxious about her milk supply, a baby struggling with latching, or a parent dealing with the complexities of pumping and breastfeeding, I’ve seen it all.

I know firsthand how vulnerable and challenging this journey can be. But I also know the immense satisfaction and connection that comes from overcoming these obstacles. My goal is to provide you with the same support and guidance that I needed during my own breastfeeding journey. I’ve been where you are, and I’ve come out the other side with the expertise to help you succeed.

Ania has been such an amazing resource to help me have a positive breastfeeding experience. She is so patient and positive I felt so much more confident after our first appointment. Ania has helped me to improve latching, find different positions, get the right fit for flanges, and work through introducing bottles to my son. I am so thankful to have her as part of my support network!

So very happy I was referred to Ania. She has been extremely supportive through my son’s tongue/lip tie journey, pumping and back to work questions, and general latch/supply help. She is incredibly knowledgeable and provides wonderful resources to reference while at home. I would recommend her services to anyone no matter how big or small the concern!

Ania’s encouragement, plus the facts, and just a couple tips, literally saved my breast-feeding journey, because it saved me, and empowered me to literally save my daughter.She was in the failure to thrive zone for weight when I first came in at 4 1/2 weeks. We bought formula to have on hand because her inability to transfer milk had tanked my supply. I wa so scared and sad for her. She was sooooo scrawny. (But still bright eyed and hopeful) Some nights we were down to the last bag of pumped milk in the freezer and it felt like my breasts were soft and empty… but the plan Ania suggested for me worked and I started to wake up mornings with breasts full of milk for my little one. We never did open the formula. Then we addressed the continued issues with her breast feeding until she was nursing normally finally at 10 1/2 weeks. Now she is 15th percentile and nursing is a joy for us both.She is my third, and I never had issues with my first two so I was not expecting to struggle. I don’t know what I would have done if I hadn’t found Ania.

We had our first lactation appointment with Anna today. She was so wonderful and really took her time addressing all of my emotions, questions, and concerns. She had so many wonderful ideas to try to get my baby back to breastfeeding as I was away from him for several days due to emergency surgery. We will continue to see her as long as we can to help with our breastfeeding journey. Thank you so much Anna

Fourth baby and I still needed help! I had a great experience with Mohawk Valley Lactation Consulting. Ania is very knowledgeable, caring, kind and compassionate. She answered all my questions. Showed me best possible positions that suit me and my baby in our feeding chair. It was awesome to have her come to our home and assist me to a better understanding of breastfeeding/clogged ducts/positioning/supply. Thank you so much Ania! Highly recommend!P.s even if you’ve had children before (breastfeeding experience), never be afraid to reach out for support/advice/help from a lactation consultant.

My experience with Ania was extremely valuable to my success in breastfeeding my son. I can't thank her enough for her guidance through the three appointments I had with her. In the beginning, when I was in pain and struggling she even reached out to me on the weekend to see how things were going. She really cares! She gave me the resources I needed to heal and get my son the help he needed. With her expertise, she always answered all of my questions and addressed my concerns. She showed me different positions to feed my son so that we could find what worked best for us. She also did strengthening exercises that benefited my son after his procedure, showing me how to do them. I truly learned a lot from Ania and I am so very thankful for her! I highly recommend her to any mom who needs help with breastfeeding.

Ania is amazing. There is no issue too big or too small. She makes you feel heard and validated. Both mother and baby are taken care of in your visits with her. The after visit summary is so helpful as well because it’s so easy to forget all of the details that are covered in the visit.She has now helped me with both of my kiddos and made the journey so worth while.
