She has helped found a human milk bank in her home city of Austin, serving on its board for 11 years, retiring as Board Vice President. A dedicated “lactivist,” Barbara has served as a volunteer lobbyist in the Texas legislature since the early 1990s, helping to pass legislation in 1995 protecting women’s right to breastfeed . She founded her busy private practice, Austin Lactation Associates in 1987, specializing in physician-referred special circumstances cases. Barbara is, with Kay Hoover, author of the text book, The Breastfeeding Atlas, which is used internationally to train health workers in evidence-based lactation management. As a clinical photographer, Barbara’s photos and videos enhance her lectures and increase the instructional potential of her talks.
