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

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.
