Melissa Taylor, RN, BSN, IBCLC
International Board Certified Lactation Consultant
We are thrilled to have Melissa Taylor join Tulsa Family Doulas in sharing her passion and skills in helping moms with their breastfeeding relationship.
Melissa is a Registered Nurse (RN, BSN) and International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC).
Melissa has worked as an RN for over 12 years, and has practiced in a variety of areas. For the last 4 years, she has worked directly with new mothers and their newborns in the Newborn Nursery, Special Care Nursery, and NICU.
Melissa’s passion for working with new mothers began after the birth of her first child and working through her own breastfeeding difficulties with the assistance of a lactation consultant.
Melissa believes in providing non-judgmental support and wants to help mothers achieve confidence and success in their breastfeeding journey, which may include pumping, bottle feeding and supplementation if needed.
Melissa graduated from Broken Arrow High School and after leaving the area to obtain her associates degree, came back to Tulsa and started her family. She has three children with her husband Jason, and loves being involved in their activities and school functions. In her spare time she enjoys running and reading.
