I have been working with pregnant women, their partners and families for the past 39 years. 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  two breastfed grandchildren!

I have been a La Leche League Leader for 38 years, a Doula and Childbirth Educator since 1994 and became a Board Certified Lactation Consultant in 1995. Now in private practice, I help mothers with a range of breastfeeding issues.


Along with Alice Elliot and Carol Shattuck-Rice,  and now Molly Brannigan, I teach Loving Arms Childbirth classes.  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.
