I am an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant IBCLC in Harare, Zimbabwe. I accompany breastfeeding families in preparing to breastfeed, get breastfeeding off to a good start and address any breastfeeding challenges that have come up throughout the breastfeeding journey all the way up to weaning.

Supporting you to support your baby.

More about me

Close
I am passionate about breastfeeding and want to enable families to feel confident in their breastfeeding journey. I grew up partly in Zimbabwe and partly in Germany. I am married to Peter and mother of 3 boys Nyasha Manuel, Anesu Marek and Maita Melvin. I breastfed all three of them and know that breastfeeding can sometimes have challenges.  I originally studied agriculture and worked in organic farming before I found my calling in Lactation Support. I started studying again and became an IBCLC in 2017. I love to read, learn from others all over the world and keep up to date. I attend as many breastfeeding conferences as I can and read the newest evidence based research on breastfeeding.
