Lamaze Childbirth Classes
I have been a certified (Authentic) Lamaze Instructor teaching over 10,000 expectant and new parent couples since 1977. I teach the actual psychoprophylactic method of Ferdinand Lamaze brought to America in the mid 50’s by Marjorie Karmel.
Infant Instinct Breastfeeding
I created a gentle, flawless breastfeeding method based on the baby’s innate ability to crawl to the breast, find the nipple and self-attach to it perfectly called Infant Instinct Breastfeeding ™.
Aloha Latch Center
I have opened a walk-in latch center since “latch” is the plague of American Breastfeeding. Fix that and mostly every other concern goes away! Do not get a so-called lip or tongue-tie lasered before you see me!

She envisions a world which does not fear pregnancy, labor, birth and breastfeeding. A world in which the rights of expectant, laboring, birthing, and breastfeeding people are respected. A world where pregnancy, labor, birth and breastfeeding are regarded as sacred, normal events which can offer surmountable challenges and triumphant rewards never before expected or experienced by those involved. A world of birth providers who trust birth and approach it gently. Finally, she envisions labors of healthy women occurring spontaneously to preserve the integrity of the birth process.
