I am the mother of three children and a Maternal Child Health Nurse Educator since 1982. After the birth of my first child I became certified in Natural Childbirth Education. I believe in the inherent safety and ability for women to birth their babies naturally. In 2001 I received HypnoBirthing Certification to begin offering more choices to women and their families. I teach year round and include group and or private individual classes in either Natural Childbirth or HypnoBirthing. I also offer sibling prep classes and review classes for mother's expecting the birth of a second child.
I am a certified lactation counselor and soon to be lactation consultant. I counsel breastfeeding moms with all sorts of situations. I also offer Parenting classes. These include:
Baby Care, Breastfeeding, Continuing Breastfeeding & Returning to Work, Introducing Solids the How, When & Why's, Infant Massage, Caring for a Sick Child, Infant/Child Safety & CPR, Attatchment Parenting & New Mother Support Group.
I actively speak for College Nursing classes, Health Fairs, Parenting Groups, Hospital Staff, Midwifery Practices and LaLeche League. I am also an active member of ICEA, BirthNet, March of Dimes Regional Speaker/Volunteer, CIMS, LLL and ICAN.
