I have been working with pregnant women, their partners and families for over more than half my life!   My passion for helping moms with pregnancy, labor and breastfeeding began with my own three children, now grown. I am also a proud grandmother of  four  grandchildren!

I have been a La Leche League Leader since 1975, a Doula and Childbirth Educator since 1994 and became a Board Certified Lactation Consultant in 1995.   My “sister” business, East Bay Lactation Associates has a wonderful office in Oakland where we see many new mothers for all sorts of breastfeeding challenges as well as provide home visits.

I am the Founder of Loving Arms Childbirth Services.   I love teaching and participating in each new parent’s journey.    I’ve also attended many births as a birth doula and love caring and supporting new moms, babies and partners during such an important and vulnerable time.

At this time I’m not working as a doula but I am teaching and hope to continue serving pregnant families.
