About Autumn

about us

As the founder of Advanced Breastfeeding Support of Las Vegas,  I have had a passion for helping people as a healthcare provider for over 15 years.  At a very early age, I knew that I wanted to help people and I became a Registered Nurse in 2005.  

There was no doubt in my mind when I was pregnant that I would have my children and they would be breastfed- no other feeding method was even an option. After my first child was born, I quickly found out that life and babies do not always go as planned.   I was as prepared as anyone could be taking every prenatal class I could, reading books about nursing, lactating, baby wearing, natural childbirth… you name it.  After starting my breastfeeding journey with my first, I learned that it was not as natural/instinctual as I had envisioned and I needed help.  I was referred to an IBCLC and I wouldn’t have been able to breastfeed my child without the help of a trained professional.  Little did I know at the time that it would be the hardest and most rewarding journey that I would ever go on.  For the first 4 months of my daughter’s life, I battled almost every possible breastfeeding issue.  From low milk supply and triple feeds, tongue tie with subsequent laser release, and even a breast abscess needing 2 months of follow up from a wound care doctor. I fought every battle I came across and overcame every obstacle.  When I understood the importance of properly trained lactation support, I knew then what I needed to dedicate the rest of my life to.  I started my professional lactation journey in 2014, and passed my boards in 2016.  Since then, I have helped over 1,000 dyads on their feeding journeys.  Three children later, each has taught me something different and each time I have been able to utilize new skills and appreciation for obstacles in infant feeding.

About Nicolette

about us
I have been a nurse for 21+ years and a lactation consultant (IBCLC) for over 13 years. I am a mother of two active boys. I breastfed both, my eldest for 15 months and my youngest over 3 1/2 years. Lack of support was a big challenge for me, both personally and professionally.
It’s truly amazing the changes that have occurred in the lactation community since I had my first child! My passion has always been helping people. Through the challenges of feeding my own boys, I realized my true passion of helping others with feeding their newborns.
Most of my experience has been in the hospital setting. I have worked acute care all of my nursing career. I carried the role as a postpartum charge nurse for over 10 years, which has provided me the knowledge and experience of being able to respond to and identify emergencies.
Transitioning to lactation, postpartum care and newborn feeding has been a natural progression for me. Assisting in and support of the mother baby dyad and family unit in infant feeding has been a rewarding experience. I enjoy learning and expanding my knowledge and experience. My goal is to provide the best care and feeding experience possible.

About Edna

about us
I was an elementary and middle school teacher for almost 9 years before transitioning full time into the role of a Lactation Consultant. My husband and I have three girls and two angel babies. I breastfed three of my girls and with all such very difference experiences. I think that’s where the thought of being a part of the community support started.
I just moved here with my family in November of 2021. I am born and raised on the beautiful island of Guahan. Back home, I have supported women, children, and families in lactation since 2016 in-person and virtually at the home, the hospital, the birthing center, and really anywhere I can! The journey of becoming a lactation professional and parent educator was something I would have never thought of. Since I started this journey, I have met so many wonderful women, partners, and families.  I am so passionate about my work and strive to support, care for and lift my fellow parents.
