Elizabeth Devaney RN, IBCLC began her journey as a registered nurse over 25 years ago. During her hospital nursing career, she gained years of experience working in maternal-child health. Working with babies and parents along their feeding journeys. After nursing both of her children, she became deeply interested in lactation. This set Elizabeth on the path to earning her certification as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) in 2009.
After becoming accredited, Elizabeth established her private practice, Laid Back Lactation, in 2013. Her hope was to assist the countless families that could not find the feeding support they so desperately needed after discharge from the hospital. With a firm belief that all parents deserve continued support coupled with her clear passion for lactation, her private practice grew solely through word-of-mouth. Since embarking on her path to supporting families with feeding their infants, Elizabeth has continued to strive to provide compassionate care that is rooted in her desire to see all families thrive by meeting them where they are and guiding them towards their goals.
When Elizabeth is not basking in working with babies and their families, you may find her bundled up in the stands of a hockey rink, cheering on her son, Patrick, as he takes to the ice. She also cherishes spending time with her college-aged daughter, Maggie, loves tending to her irises in the spring and walking her dog, Kors. Elizabeth and her husband, Steve, have been married for over 20 years and his support has helped her pursue her dreams of helping parents and babies.
