About Me

Angela Plunkett RN, BSN, IBCLC - Tennessee Lactation Care LLC

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.

I am always learning! I have completed the IBCLC Master Class: Oral Habilitation of the Breastfeeding Dyad. Currently I am adding to my skill set by studying for my Lifestyle Medicine Practitioner certificate.

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.

Please reach out to me via phone or email to schedule a virtual or home visit to help you successfully reach your breastfeeding goals.
