Lynne Humkey, RN, IBCLC
Registered Nurse, International Board Certified Lactation Consultant

Lynne has been a registered nurse since 1976 and an IBCLC since 1998.

After beginning her career in adult ICU, Lynne married and quickly had four children, all of whom she breastfed for 13 months.  Following the children's birth, Lynne found nursing in Labor Hall, Post Partum and Newborn Nursery very fulfilling for several years.  She then spent 10 years in a busy OB/GYN practice as both a nurse and childbirth educator.

Opening her private practice as a lactation consultant in 2000 has allowed Lynne to realize a dream she has of helping today's young women become successful nursing mothers'.  Lynne has taught hundreds of classes for expectant parents in both childbirth and breastfeeding.   Bluegrass Lactation Consulting's mission is: Dedicated to helping mothers in the Bluegrass achieve their breastfeeding goals.
