About Me, Janet.

I am a midwife, lactation consultant, and ante/post-natal counsellor. I’m originally from Liverpool, England and now live in Zug, Switzerland. I am married to Heinz and between us we have two grown-up sons and two daughters and one (nearly two) amazing grandsons.

My life.

As a Mum:

As a Midwife:

I have two wonderful grown-up daughters, but I was young and naive when I had them.  I suffered a traumatic pregnancy and overcame severe post-natal depression. My girls mean the world to me and I would not change that for anything.

Overcoming a traumatic pregnancy, puerperal psychosis and post-natal depression, I decided to use my experience to help others. I studied hard, with two young children and became a passionate midwife.

As a Lactation Consultant:

Early infant nutrition is a difficult field to navigate and so learning to support mothers with their infant feeding choice, with a focus on breastfeeding and informing parents of the true value of this liquid gold, became an important part of my work.

As a Counsellor:

I furthered my qualifications with counselling diplomas, focusing on ante- and post-natal mental health and bereavement.  Having experienced and witnessed such distress, I wanted to find the optimum way to support those struggling to move forward with their lives.

As a Expat:

I came here for work and as my girls were in University in England, I moved alone. It was a difficult but fabulous choice and one which I am totally proud of doing and have no regrets. Overcoming language barriers, fitting into a new culture and also finding true love. It helped me to realise my full potential and I love my life here.
