I’m Johanna, an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) from Australia, now based in Thalwil, Zurich, providing breastfeeding and infant feeding support throughout Switzerland, Europe and the world.
I will always ensure the utmost health for you and your baby, while simultaneously considering your own goals and dreams, your history and the support situation surrounding you. Everyone deserves to move into parenthood with confidence, and I’d love to walk with you for part of the way.
In addition to my work in my private practice, you will find me as a committee member of the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners, an educator with the European Society of Neonatologists and the European Society of Paediatric Research, along with regularly speaking at a variety of international conferences.
I am a member of the International Affiliation of Tongue Tie Professionals with extensive additional training in oral habilitation, trauma counselling and maternal mental health, regularly speaking at international conferences and working alongside universities and global organisations to improve infant feeding and parental support worldwide.
“I thank my lucky stars that I found Johanna! She showed such compassion and understanding of both myself and my little one. She armed me with a wealth of valuable information, tools, techniques and exercises. I found the strength to advocate for my baby, trusting in what I learned. I can’t say enough how much I recommend Johanna and the support she has given to us.“
