About Me

For over a quarter of a century as a Perinatal Instructor, I have been helping pregnant couples learn how to get the baby out. As a Lactation Consultant, I help to bust (pardon the pun) all the breastfeeding myths and counsel moms-to-be and new moms on the practices that lead to a successful nursing experience.  The business of babies keeps a perpetual smile on my face!
