Mother and Baby are My Mission
Why I Love What I Do:
Wonderful experience of mothering my 3 breastfed children
Guiding nursing mothers for over 20 years as a Board Certified Lactation Consultant
Pediatric Dental Hygienist and wife of a Pediatric Dentist for over 30 years, specializing in the infant/child's oral cavity with expertise in tongue and lip tie corrections
My passion for holistic nutrition helped me earn a doctorate degree in Natural Health, enhancing the nutritional status of the pre-pregnant, pregnant, and lactating mother and her baby through:
Nutrient-rich foods for maintaining optimal health and healing
Safe homeopathic and herbal remedies for increasing milk supply, healing sore, cracked nipples, and resolving mastitis and clogged ducts
Holistic Nutritional Planning:
Help mothers and moms-to-be choose disease-fighting foods to ward off infections
Lactating moms - sufficient milk supply and higher quality of breast milk
Nutrition and preventative dental care for the growing infant (6 - 12 months )
Preparing moms for
their breastfeeding journey through teaching and holistic nutrition.

Working with many breastfeeding couples throughout the years has allowed me the opportunity to learn from mothers and their babies as well as help them find solutions to their breastfeeding challenges. Supporting the mom and baby through some of these challenges and seeing them get "back on track" has been one of the most rewarding aspects of my job.

"I am so thankful for the help that Cathy provided me when my first son was born. He was having difficulty nursing which caused me a great deal of stress. She kept me calm and showed me exactly what I needed to do to fix my problem. She made me feel comfortable and confident. After meeting with her I was able to go on and nurse my son for 18 months. After giving birth to my second son, I used the information that she taught me and I was able to avoid the issues that I had before. I haven't had any problems this time around."
