Fifteen years ago I started working as a Breastfeeding Peer Councilor,
helping women through initial breastfeeding problems. A few years
later, I became a Birth Doula for a non profit group called
"Companieras". I attended many births where women were alone in labor
and frightened of the process. As their doula, I supported them and
shared stories that would remind them that women have been having babies
forever and how this is a rite of passage for women. This became my
passion and about three years ago, I continued my training to include
Prenatal Yoga. I saw the benefits that women experienced when they took
these classes as a way to prepare for childbirthing. Now I continue to
support families through their childbirthing years by teaching Prenatal
Yoga, labor prep and breastfeeding classes.
I also offer private
classes in the comfort of your home or one of my locations in Glendora, Laverne or Claremont.

Labor preparation and breastfeeding workshop 4 hours $120. per couple (in studio)
This workshop focuses on helping your partner be the best birth coach they can be. I have come up with a "checklist" of things that your coach can take home and use the day of labor. Many have told me how helpful this was because it just consisted of one page that was easy to follow.
Breastfeeding- The first two weeks and beyond. 1 1/2 hours 35. per person
Although breastfeeding is very natural, it can be challenging. Did you know that the majority of the problems women have with breastfeeding has to do with positioning and latching on? We will go over this and many other issues that come up within the first few weeks and months.
