Meet Your Instructor

rebeccaburdittRebecca Burditt, BS, CNC, IBCLC, RLC is a passionate advocate for women’s health and is dedicated to promoting wellness within her family and to her clients. As an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, Certified Nutritional Consultant and Postpartum Doula, Rebecca is pleased to be a practicing part of the pre- and postnatal holistic living community.

While pursuing her undergraduate degree in Nutrition Science, Rebecca decided to take her love of health and fitness to the next level. She trained and taught as a Feminine Movement Instructor at S Factor Los Angeles and became formally trained in both classical and contemporary Pilates through Pilates Sports Center in Encino, CA.  Passionate about her work, she then continued instructing clients privately and at other movement studios throughout the Los Angeles area for many years.

In 2004 Rebecca became a mom for the first time following the birth of her first son. Although she experienced a relatively easy transition into motherhood, that was certainly not the case four years later following the birth of her triplets. Noticing a serious gap in quality and consistent evidence-based education and support during the prenatal and postpartum period Rebecca decided to shift her focus and fully immerse herself in the world of preconception, pregnancy, birth, and beyond.

Rebecca is an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and Registered Lactation Consultant (RLC) via the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners (IBLCE) and a Certified Lactation Educator Counselor (CLEC) through the University of California, San Diego. She is also formally trained as a Postpartum Doula (DONA), holds a certificate in both Pregnancy Pilates (Pilates Sports Center) and Prenatal Yoga (Ma Yoga®), and is currently working on her certification as a Maternity and Parenting Holistic Health Practitioner from the International Maternity and Parenting Institute™ (IMPI). As a mother who has birthed and breastfeed five children, she understands how amazing this period can be with the right kind of support. Her goal is to educate, inspire, empower, and support families (all with some fun mixed in) as they transition into parenthood.

Rebecca currently resides between Los Angeles and Ventura, CA with her family and runs her own private lactation practice.
