Angela Plunkett RN, BSN, IBCLC
In 1996 I received my RN, BSN and started working weekends as a Pediatric RN, while also beginning my parenting and breastfeeding journey. With a new baby, I joined La Leche League and became a La Leche League Leader in 2000, about the time my second baby was born. The Pediatric and Mother/Baby nurses I worked with at the hospital encouraged me to grow my lactation skills, and in 2002 I became an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC).
Since then I have been helping new moms learn to breastfeed their babies at the hospital, in the community through home visits, and around the US virtually over phone and video calls. I continue to serve La Leche League as a Leader and Area Professional Liaison (APL), and stay up to date in lactation field as a member of the United States Lactation Consultant Association (USLCA) and TN Lactation Consultants Association.
Having breastfed my 5 babies, I would love to help you get your breastfeeding journey off to a terrific start, answer all your questions, and help you resolve any breasting issues that arise.
When not helping mothers on their breastfeeding journey, I can be found homeschooling the last 3 of my children, reading a good book with coffee in hand, crocheting, gardening, or traveling with my family.
