I am a Breastfeeding Consultant (IBCLC) and former Midwife of twenty years. I live in the Gold Coast with my partner & two young children. I am here to help you solve your breastfeeding hurdles.
I believe that the mother baby relationship is the most important one of all. Its closeness and togetherness shapes us and also the society around us. Breastfeeding is a huge part of this relationship and it is to be nurtured, because its not always an easy skill to master!
I am super passionate about babies being nurtured with their mothers milk which is exclusively composed for them - by YOU - as an individual source of energy exchange, nutrition and love . I see breastfeeding a little differently to other consultants and provide insight into the actual root of the problem you may have, so we can solve it together in its entirety and for the longevity of your breastfeeding journey.
You see when I consult with you, it is about looking at the whole picture, both or ‘all’ of you together.
I also want to know what is going on for you as a breastfeeding woman, not only physically but also emotionally. all of these thins matter in your breastfeeding and transition to motherhood journey. I also look at what is going on for your baby (ies) in themselves and also within the breastfeeding relationship. It is a ‘discovery’ process.
I prefer a hands off non interventional approach allowing you to learn with my gentle guidance. I give you the information and you can choose how to use it for yourself.
Together we will navigate the hurdles and work out a plan.
I have experience in all the possible breastfeeding problems including mastitis, under or oversupply, latch issues, tongue tie and much more besides.
You can see me at home, in the clinic or virtually. Wherever I see you I provide a ‘safe space’ to relax.
All your appointments are confidential and provide you with individualised care since, I believe that every breastfeeding journey is unique.
In Jana’s words:
I believe in the innate healing capacity of our bodies. The human body is incredible; it is always working for you to its best capacity.
My passion is guiding families to raise healthy children, and for over 15 years I have focused on adjusting pregnant women, babies and young children (but I do adjust the rest of the family too). I love helping parents understand their child, and what is happening in their brain and body.
I may seem very calm, but there is a lot going on in my head. The style of adjusting I use is similar - it may seem gentle but there is a lot going on in the nervous system. I utilise NOT (Neural Organisation Technique), SOT (Sacro-Occipital Technique), NET (Neuro-Emotional Technique), and Webster (for pregnancy care).
Jana is also a German New Medicine practitioner, using your symptoms as a guide to uncover the underlying stresses causing your issues.

My own pregnancy journeys have continuously led me towards so much personal growth and lessons learned, that pregnancy, birth and postpartum is not only a huge passion of mine but one that is SO important and not emphasised enough in the Western world. I have made it my mission to guide women to their innate wisdom and power through food and sharing information, stories and community..
When our son was born in 2018, as a new mumma, doing her best to nourish herself & newborn, I couldn't help but notice the lack of nourishing, organic and healing prepared meals for new mumma's in their 4th trimester. The first 40 days postpartum is such an imperative bonding and healing time, where we need to focus on us and our new babies. Not to mention if you already have a tribe in your home, having that important bonding time can be truly affected by the hungry demands of everyday life.
My love and passion for food started at a young age and I have ALWAYS loved hosting parties and cooking up a nourishing feast for family and friends. My family heritage is Greek Cypriot and I have always felt a deep connection to my elders of the villages in Cyprus and that strong connection to the land, food, family and community.
The Village Mumma is not just about filling bellies, it's about the journey of flavours, the nourishing of your soul, supporting you with information to make health conscious decisions in all aspects of life, the bringing together of people and most importantly supporting you in postpartum, parenting and life and guiding you on your pregnancy journey to trust your intuition and innate wisdom, your DEEP knowing that lives within us all.
The villages always have that mumma that they can turn to for nourishment and support and I feel honoured you have come to me to nourish and empower you and your family. Thank you for joining me on this incredible journey. I look forward to nourishing your bellies & souls!
