"Edna is amazing! I had no clue on how to breastfeed and so I reached out to her. Not only did she message me, but she went out of her way out, squeezed me into her busy schedule and came to my house. She taught me the proper way to latch baby, to discontinue using a wire bra, etc. At one point, I also had mastitis and Edna recommended home remedies, too! She’s definitely THEE GO TO breastfeeding GURU! I can’t thank her" enough!

" Edna led this class beautifully. My partner and I have learned so much and we feel confident in our choices for the birth we envision with the help from Edna and this class. "

"Hi, I’m a second time mom & first time exclusively breastfeeding. I was born and raised on Guam, but I’m currently a military spouse so I’m living in Texas at the moment. When I gave birth to my daughter in Hawaii, the lactation support there was “good” but not very informative. I saw three consultants and none made me feel comfortable enough to say to myself “you know what you’re doing.... you got this” So I posted on my Instagram story my struggles and a couple of mamas suggested I should bring up any concerns I have with Edna. I did and let me tell you... SHE’S AMAZING! Every question, concern, or even just a reminder that I can do it... she was there. Always very motivating, informative and comforting. I cannot thank her enough for helping me get to where I am in my breastfeeding journey."

"I immediately struggled with breastfeeding my first born, but because my husband and I took Breastfeeding 101 at Sagua, we knew to seek help right away. I learned so much from that experience that I thought it was going to be a breeze with my second born. Boy was I wrong. Although my second one did not have trouble latching on and feeding, it was more than just uncomfortable, and I had a feeling he was not latching properly. It was our second day back home from the hospital and I could not handle the pain. I messaged Edna and she was so generous to come to my house to help me. She sat with me in the comfort of my home to support the baby, and most importantly, to guide me on how to improve my breastfeeding abilities. I am forever grateful for Edna’s willingness to help. You can tell that her passion is helping mother’s on their breastfeeding journey—a journey that is not easy for many of us."

"On September 25, 2020, I gave birth to a healthy baby girl. I planned to mix-feed her so she could get used to it when I finally decide to find a job. After my delivery I offered formula first while waiting for my milk supply to come in. However, with encouragements from love ones, I finally decided to exclusively breastfeed. Breastfeeding was very rewarding for both me and my baby on the first month. However, because of having marital problems, being jobless, having two more kids at home doing online schooling, and having no insurance, it took a toll on my milk supply. Because of covid, applying for medicaid has been a struggle. Almost everyday I had to call different departments requesting the documents I needed. It would take me a few days to even weeks to be able to finally get a hold of them just to get an appointment. I didn’t realize that I was not nourishing my mind and body plus I was not able to sleep well because of constantly worrying of my children. As a result, it drastically affected my milk supply. After three days of my baby not eating well, she was showing signs of dehydration. Finally, I decided to reach out to a long time friend who has breastfed her baby for four years straight. I asked her for help because my daughter was not accepting formula at all. My friend introduced Ms. Edna to me. At first I was skeptical because I didn’t think anybody, especially a stranger would be able to help me. But I was surprised because Ms. Edna was very hands-on with helping me. I would send her messages everyday and she would respond everytime. From giving me tips on how to properly breastfeed to even meeting with me during the weekends to see my progression on my milk supply...it even came to a point when I would just ask her things out her scope of work anytime of the day but just her being there helped me a lot. She is not just a professional breastfeeding consultant but also a friend that I can rely on. She has that aura, perseverance and passion to her work. She won’t stop helping and guiding you as long as you are determined to reach your goal. Now, my daughter is almost three months old. I can never be happier because she is well-contented when I am feeding her. She is very healthy and very happy all because Ms. Edna did not give up on me."

"During the first few weeks of breastfeeding my newborn, I messaged Ednalyna about my problems and concerns. She never failed to respond with good advice and positivity! There was a time I stopped breastfeeding because I was afraid my medication would affect baby. She was very supportive and reassured me that she will find a way to get baby back on my milk. And she did! When I began breastfeeding again, I wasn't producing enough milk. Ednalyna came to the rescue and gave me some great tips on how to produce more milk without turning to lactation supplements. As a first time mother with no one to relate to or talk to about breastfeeding, I am very thankful for her continuous support and guidance throughout this journey. 🙏"
"As a first time mother, pregnancy & soon to be motherhood was an overwhelming thought. Thankfully I decided to take a class by Ednalyna and I am SO glad that I did. Not only did she help to feel prepared for labor but I've found some of the concepts I learned to also apply toward being a mom now as well! I have nothing but positive things to say about my experience with Ednalyna and this Hypnobirthing class. I highly recommend taking this class to help achieve a happy, peaceful and profound birthing experience. "

" Edna is INCREDIBLE! Highly recommend her to any one who is looking for a International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) or a Hypnobirthing instructor. Although I didn't use her as a birth Doula, I know she offers those services as well.
Edna is incredibly professional while being completely authentic, raw, and relatable when it comes to disseminating information. I first met Edna when she taught our Hypnobirthing course, and then later utilized her for her expertise as an IBCLC with breastfeeding after giving birth (and applying everything I learned in her HB course during it, it made a huge impact on me having the best birth ever!)
I cannot recommend Edna enough. Once you meet her you'll be blanketed by her warm spirit and authenticity. You can tell her calling is to help others and she is living it out through her services. She really made an impact in my first pregnancy journey and her imprint in our family's life is something I am very grateful for. "

"Edna is amazing! I loved her birthing class & she will always have a special spot in my birthing experience. She helped prepare me and my partner to bring my baby boy into this world & it paid off during my birth day. I was sad when our time together ended because she truly became a friend in just that short amount of time. I'd recommend any and everyone who is thinking about hypnobirthing, to take the class with her. She explains everything so well and helps you transition your mind easily into that space that it needs to be in on your birthing day. I wish I could take the class again but for postpartum lol 100/10 recommend. "
" I learned about hypnobirthing from my sister-in-law, whom happened to be due 3 days before me. She loved out of state so I researched if it was available in Las Vegas and came across Edna. She was extremely accommodating. To this day I couldn’t imagine having gone through labor and delivery without the instruction from Edna. I loved her so much I inquired about using her as a doula. I had some breastfeeding issues and I reached out to Edna once again and she came to help me the next day as well as a follow up some time after. Needless to say, she will always be there to help. I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of her services. "

" I’m so glad my husband and I found Edna and took her Hypnobirthing course! We utilized so much of the information learned in class during our birthing experience. The breathing techniques were key to dealing with my contractions. "

" I almost did myself a major disservice by not seeking Ednalyna’s help. However I truly thank God I reached out to her. The wealth of knowledge that she gave helped me to let go of so much fear and anxiety those last couple weeks before going into labor. I felt excited and prepared. Even when things didn’t go according to plan, I feel -largely due to her coaching, that I handled it better then I would have had I not done this course with her. You will appreciate the multiple tools & comfort measures she teaches to equip you and your partner during labor. When I was able to truly put what I learned to work I found myself feeling a significant decrease in pain. What I’ve learned from her I’ve been able to apply in life after having my baby. Especially during the fourth trimester when my hormones were still going crazy and my body didn’t feel like my own. (I found that part to be the hardest in this whole experience) and she was there for me during that time too from lactation help to all the concerns that I had as a new mama. I can confidently say you’ll get all you are looking for and so much more with her. So empower yourself Mama, join her birth tribe! "

"It was my third day home with my first born. I felt like I wasn’t producing enough milk and was desperate for help. I messaged Edna to ask if she new of any breastfeeding mommas who would be willing to donate a few ounces of milk to hold us over. She got back to me right away and told me she was on it. In a few hours she told me she had a donor. Without having to ask, she told me she would go pick it up and bring it over to me. She was over later that evening with more than just a few ounces and even stayed to help me with my breastfeeding. I had never felt more supported than I did then. We can’t thank her enough for helping us out in those early days."
