Brittani Edds | BSN, RN, CPN, IBCLC

Oh hello! So glad you are here. I'm Brittani Edds, an international board certified lactation consultant and pediatric/neonatal registered nurse with over 10 years experience working with women, families, and children. I knew I wanted to continue my career in lactation when I would continually avoid charting in the hospital so I could spend time helping new families learn the tools they needed to feed their babies. I took the leap to follow my passion and have not looked back since.

Breastfeeding can be magical. It can also be hard. I've experienced both with my own daughters, and I was lucky to seek support of an IBCLC to help me when I struggled. Parenthood is a wild ride, and sometimes (okay lets be honest -  most times) it is messy. I believe strongly that support does not have to stop upon discharge, and I needed to do something about it. Enter in, The Milk Academy.

It is the honor of my lifetime to be a part of a new family's journey. When I am not doing the work I love, you can usually find me spending time with my husband and my beautiful daughters, in the sunshine, drinking all the coffee.

Board Certified Lactation Consultant

Brittani Edds is a board certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) through the international Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners, which is the gold standard for lactation care. She is also a skilled Registered Nurse with over 10 years of experience in Pediatrics, NICU, PICU, and Women's Health and Postpartum. 

Clinical Expertise

Brittani has spent hours outside of her initial certification on additional training on the management and treatment of oral ties, bottle refusal, and feeding the late pre term neonate and NICU graduate. Her additional training helps her navigate the most complex feeding concerns with the families she works for. 

Realistic Support

"My approach is simple: we make the plan together. There are many ways to navigate and intervene on a difficult feeding scenario, but I will never suggest an intervention that feels too far fetched, heavy, or unrealistic for you or your family. My approach is non judgmental and I truly encourage the families I work with to be the drivers in their care." - Brittani
