Specialist Lactation & Infant Feeding Support in Thalwil, Zurich

Hi! I’m Johanna, an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and infant feeding specialist, providing much-needed support to thousands of families throughout Switzerland, Europe and the world. As a trauma-informed health specialist, it is my passion to provide a judgement-free, safe space to support families with evidence and compassion throughout the perinatal period. I see the deep impact that infant feeding issues can have on new parenthood, and aim to smooth this transition as much as possible. 

In addition to my work in my  private practice, I am an educator for the Master of Advanced Studies in Neonatology with the European School of Neonatology , and work alongside the European Society of Paediatric Research, together with other universities and global organisations.

You can often find me speaking at a variety of international conferences in Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and the USA. I am a committee member of the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners, a member of the International Affiliation of Tongue Tie Professionals with extensive additional training in oral habilitation, trauma counselling and maternal mental health.

“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.“
