After a lifetime career as a Midwife I am now "retiring" to focus solely on Lactation Consulting.
I believe, along with the American Academy of Pediatrics, that Mother's breast milk is the perfect food for her Baby.
Let's work together to:
A Midwife is an expert in pregnancy, labor, and birth. She cares for both mother and baby after the baby is born, educating families about the benefits of breastfeeding.
Midwives help mothers and babies initiate breastfeeding in the golden hour after birth. Lactation consulting is a routine part of a midwife's care.
