Featured Speaker

Robyn Roche-Paull RN, BSN, IBCLC

Robyn Roche-Paull, IBCLC and US Navy veteran, is the award winning author of the comprehensive book "Breastfeeding in Combat Boots: A Survival Guide to Successful Breastfeeding While Serving in the Military" published by Hale Publishing and the founder of the website www.breastfeedingincombatboots.com. She has over a decade of experience helping breastfeeding mothers and babies, and began her breastfeeding career while still on active duty in the US Navy. She served six years as an aircraft mechanic on F/A-18 Hornets and A-6 Intruders on deployment overseas and stateside. During that time she gave birth to breastfed her son for over a year before separating from the military with an Honorable discharge. Robyn wrote her book due to the difficulties she experienced breastfeeding her son while on active duty, and her desire to help other military mothers be successful at breastfeeding so that they do NOT have to experience those difficulties; but instead can enjoy all that breastfeeding has to offer both mother and child. Robyn has been working with breastfeeding mothers for over 12 years. She holds a Bachelor's degrees in both Nursing and Maternal Child Health. Currently, Robyn is working as an IBCLC at Naval Medical Center Portsmouth serving AD military families. In addition, Robyn is a Board member of MiLCA (Military Lactation Consultants Association), and the Past Secretary for TALCA (Tidewater Area Lactation Consultant Association). She maintains her website and Facebook page, writes for various blogs and magazines, and helps active duty military mothers worldwide via email and Skype. Robyn is the proud owner of various tattoos and piercings, and lives in Virginia Beach, Virginia with her husband of 21 years, who is a Chief Petty Officer in the US Navy, and her three (long-term breastfed) children. Robyn has won numerous awards for her book, including Finalist in the Foreword Reviews Book of the Year awards, National Parenting Products Awards as an Honors level winner, and the Silver Medal award from the Military Writers Society of America. Robyn is an energetic and dynamic speaker who brings personal experience combined with evidence-based research to her presentations. She is an expert in the field of breastfeeding in the military, a topic that presents unique challenges and circumstances far different from those encountered by women in the civilian workforce. Her motivation for speaking is to bring attention to subjects she feels are little understood, and yet affect many women. Robyn has been a well-received speaker locally, nationally and internationally. She has spoken at ILCA, LLL Conferences and at military bases world-wide.
