Biography:

Shondra Mattos is an IBCLC (Internationally Board-certified Lactation Consultant) and owner of a Location-independent lactation practice where she provides breastfeeding and infant feeding support to families countrywide.

Shondra finds the science of lactation fascinating, and as such, she has a passion for sharing her understanding of complex lactation subjects with her colleagues and aspiring lactation students. When she's not with clients, speaking, or teaching, she spends time with her husband and daughter in Fayetteville, NC.

Bryna is an IBCLC (Internationally Board-certified Lactation Consultant), educator, and a birth doula. Bryna owns and manages a private doula and lactation practice, offering education, office consults, and in-home support. It’s important to Bryna to bring a comprehensive “doula model” of care to all aspects of birth work.

As a member of the LGBTQIA+ and Neurodivergent communities, offering inclusive care on every level is very important to Bryna. By listening more than talking, and unpacking our own biases outside the consult space, she believes we are able to offer comprehensive, concordant, and individualized care for our clients as lactation consultants and birth workers.
