About Rachel

Rachel Deckler , RN, MSN, IBCLC


Rachel is the mother of four wonderful children, and the primary lactation consultant and owner of Austin Breastfeeding. Rachel began her career 15 years ago apprenticing with Austin area midwives. Through that experience she fell in love with helping new mothers.

After receiving a Masters from the University of Texas in nursing Rachel forged her craft in various fields of women’s care including Obstetrics, Fertility, and of course, Lactation! Rachel had the privilege of serving as a lactation consultant with the St. David’s healthcare system for six years, most recently leading the lactation department of St. David’s South Austin.

Rachel started Austin Breastfeeding both to have more time to devote to her children, and to offer much needed expertise and personalized follow-up care to new moms struggling with breastfeeding through in-home visits.
