I am an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), offering private breastfeeding and infant-feeding consultations through home visits, hospital visits, in-practice consultations and online Skype support.
I’m so happy to be able to support you in your homes again!
Please continue to wear a mask throughout our consults together.
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!”

I can provide lactation consultations at your home or hospital throughout Zurich, Zug, Schwyz and St Gallen within 30km of Wädenswil.
If you prefer, we can meet at my practice room in Thalwil, a calm, safe space where you can focus solely on your baby.
If are not able to see me in person, I offer consultations over Skype or detailed email assistance.
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 over 2800 supportive women in all stages of their breastfeeding journeys, along with breastfeeding professionals (IBCLC, CBC), La Leche League leaders, midwives, doulas, birth coaches, 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?’
