Morgan Tempel, RN, BSN, IBCLC

Morgan Tempel, RN, BSN, IBCLC, is a lactation consultant and women’s health expert at Newma in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Morgan’s personal breastfeeding experiences prompted her career change from a hospital nurse to a lactation specialist.

After graduating from the University of South Florida (USF) School of Nursing in Tampa, Morgan spent the first 10 years of her career working in the acute hospital setting, working in a step-down intensive care unit (ICU), labor and delivery, and postpartum nursing care. 

Morgan changed the course of her career after having her first two children. Along with continuing to be a postpartum nurse, she became a certified lactation counselor (CLC), providing in-hospital lactation care for new moms and teaching breastfeeding classes. 

With her experience and additional coursework, Morgan became an international board-certified lactation consultant (IBCLC). With her additional education and breastfeeding support knowledge she was able to successfully breastfeed her third child for 2.5 years, whereas her first two she only was able to make it to 6-10 months.

In 2019, Morgan left the hospital setting to open the Milky Minute and work one-on-one with new mothers, helping them with their breastfeeding needs at every step. After two years of private lactation consulting, Morgan realized that the need for increased supportive women's care was far larger than just lactation support. This is when she began to set the groundwork for opening Newma, which proudly opened its doors in August of 2023. 

At Newma, along with managing the business side of the clinic, Morgan continues to provide lactation consultations and th breastfeeding assistance they need before and after the delivery of the baby and throughout their entire breastfeeding journey.
