About Nancy Tsen RNC-MNN, IBCLC

My Mission

Lactation support after having a new baby (or babies) is not always easy to come by. Although there are community support and resources, sometimes it is just too difficult to travel out of your home for help.

My goal is to bring lactation help that is compassionate and evidence-based to families and their new member(s) in the comfort of their own home. Together, we can define your breastfeeding goals and how best to achieve them.

Personal Biography

Apart from founding Cradle Me Lactation, I have more than 10 years of experience as a registered nurse on the maternal/newborn unit in a hospital setting. I achieved my RNC-MNN in 2010.

A few years into my nursing career, I discovered I had an overwhelming desire to help my patients find success when they struggled with breastfeeding. Although I helped many families overcome issues presented in the first few days of their newborns’ lives, I often wondered how things would go when they got home.

After I had my oldest son in 2015, nursing him and having our own struggles with breastfeeding motivated me to get my Lactation Consultant Certification. I successfully nursed him for two years, received my IBCLC certification in 2017, and went on to nurse my younger son (with a different set of nursing struggles) for 2 years and counting – three of my biggest achievements!

My family and I live in Northern New Jersey. I have known my husband, Jason, for 14 years and I have been happily married to him for 10 years. My older son, Elijah, is 6, brilliant, innovative, mischievous, silly, and so loving! My younger son, Ethan, is 2, a ball of energy, a quick learner, sweet, and big brother's #1 fan! Their canine sister, Maya, is a 13 year-old Boxer with the heart of a child and extremely gentle to her rowdy little brothers. They are my whole heart and soul!

What is an IBCLC?

"An International Board Certified Lactation Consultant is the only internally recognized health care professional who specializes in lactation care. As a clinical expert in the management of breastfeeding and human lactation, the IBCLC is trained to counsel mothers and families on initiation, exclusivity, and duration of breastfeeding, and to assist amidst any difficulties or high-risk situations."

"IBCLCs are sensitive to and support the needs of mothers, infants, children, and various family structures in working towards breastfeeding goals."

(IBCLE, 2003, 2008; ICLA, 2006)
