I am an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), offering private breastfeeding and infant-feeding consultations through in-practice consultations, home visits and online support.
I’m so happy to be able to work with you in-person again!
If you are struggling with any aspect of your child’s feeding, if you have questions and uncertainties, if you feel that you’d like to talk through some options in a safe and entirely non-judgemental way, I’d love to assist you.
Learn about how to prepare for a smooth breastfeeding experience, along with the typical hurdles you may come across in the first few days. You will come away knowing how to get you both off to the best start possible, no matter what your birth experience.
“I felt like Johanna truly listened to my needs and wants for mine and my son’s breastfeeding journey, and then gave me the tools I needed to move forward with confidence. Her passion to help others meet their goals, and her incredible knowledge of the science behind breastfeeding… all major reasons I wholeheartedly trust her advice. Thank you, Johanna! Looking forward to our next consult!”

Most consultations will be in my practice in Thalwil. Here is a calm, safe space where we can focus solely on you and your baby. I do occasional home visits for those with very small babies with complex needs.
If are not able to see me in person, I offer virtual consultations for all areas of infant feeding, and can also provide detailed written support.
I travel globally to speak at international conferences, universities and health practices. Please contact me for enquiries regarding teaching engagements, presentations and conferences.
Send me a message and we’ll figure it out together.
Mums and mums-to-be who are living or working in Switzerland can join my Facebook group, Breastfeeding Mamas in Switzerland. There, you will find around 3000 supportive women in all stages of their breastfeeding journeys, along with breastfeeding professionals (IBCLC, CBC), midwives, doulas, birth coaches, peer supporters, etc.
The main focus of this group is to ensure that all women are met with reliable information, while feeling safe and supported enough to be vulnerable. The community here is very strong, with a highly supportive, empathetic and non-judgemental atmosphere. Here, you can ask questions, celebrate, cry, rage and share.
Very often, when driving to a home visit, I get a message on my phone: ‘He’s hungry! Should I feed him?! Should I try to wait?’
