Meet Cynthia Epps, MS, IBCLC

Hi. I'm Cynthia Epps. I am a Board Certified Lactation Consultant and I have a Master's Degree in Nutritional Biochemistry. I have combined the two to maintain an infant feeding practice in Los Angeles, California over the past 12 to 15 years. I have 2 children who are now young adults and I breastfed both of them for 2-1/2 years each back when it was the dark ages. I did it on my own and this brought me in to the field that I'm working in at this time. The lack of knowledge, the lack of education for the mothers was really rampant at that time, so we were working on improving it now. My hobbies are walking my dog which I do religiously around the neighborhood and that's the time that really settles my mind. I also enjoy doing yoga with my 2 granddaughters. It's just wonderful to take classes together and have family time. And, then, there is the nighttime reading where we all borrowed books and exchange them in the household which is also a lot of fun.

Cynthia Epps, MS, IBCLC

Infant Feeding Specialist

Cynthia Epps, MS, IBCLC holds a master’s degree in nutritional biochemistry and is a board certified lactation consultant in private practice in Los Angeles, California. She specializes in home and internet consults for new mother/infant couples from birth through two years of age. She covers early breastfeeding questions such as learning to trust the breast, establishing a good milk supply, sore nipples, colic and reflux; as well as “back to work” protocols for the working mother and “transitioning to solids” at six months per the American Academy of Pediatrics and World Health Organization guidelines, plus food wars and gentle weaning guidelines for the older infant. In addition, she has written for LA Family Magazine and Mothering Magazine, and leads infant feeding workshops throughout the community. With the wisdom of motherhood still largely negated or ignored, she specializes in combining ancient matriarchal traditions with modern science to help the new mother transition into the time-honored role of nurturing her baby with body and breast. She continues to pursue the goal of redefining the human infant feeding norm as breastfeeding or breastmilk for all children.
