Biography:

Bryna is a lactation consultant, educator, and birth doula. She began her education in marine chemistry, but pivoted to birth work after the birth of her daughter, Maia. After a rigorous 4500hr internship before sitting for the IBCLC exam, she discovered she never wants to stop learning about the things that impact pregnancy, birth, and lactation (which is pretty much everything). Enamored will all things continuing education, Bryna has undertaken many various courses and offerings, as well as research on her own. She has a particular heart for reflex integration in lactation care, as well as advocacy for equitable treatment for LGBTQ+ families in birth and lactation. Bryna has four children, and lives with her family, dog, ducks, and chickens near Portland, Oregon, in the American Pacific Northwest. When not teaching, attending births, seeing clients, or child wrangling, Bryna likes to knit and attend Renaissance Faires, sometimes at the same time!
