In my practice over 30 years I've given breastfeeding assistance to hundreds of nursing mothers and their babies.  As a Private Practice IBCLC, I promise to:

 

  • Find the cause and a solutiion to your breastfeeding challenge

  • Use my knowledge, experience & creative ideas to resolve issues

  • Support & protect all mother's goals and baby's health needs

  • Teach about normal, healthy processes to support maternal confidence

  • Provide evidence-based knowledge to address problems, as:
     

   Low Milk Production - Latch & Effective Milk Transfer - Mastitis - Engorgement - Poor Infant Suck   
   Normal Newborn Behavior - Lip & Tongue Tie Assessment & Referrals


As a Medela Pump Rental Station, I offer a service to new mothers in the Dallas area, meeting the community need for Medical breast pumps outside the hospital. I provide equipment for Mother's Rooms at Texas Instruments & various corporate employers.

Breastfeeding In-Service Programs for professionals is a passion I enjoy. As a regular  speaker, I've provided breastfeeding education for Parker University during the Pediatric rotation in chiropractic training, and for many area Midwives at local birth centers.

 

Personal breastfeeding experiences with our sons, and decades of service in La Leche League during my younger, mothering years led my search and acquisition of my IBCLC Certification as Lactation Consultant and also as a Bradley® Method Childbirth Educator.
 
My husband Paul and I are proud parents of our three grown sons.  They all have terrific wives and have given us five wonderful grandchildren.
