Nena Aleschewski

Naturopath, Herbalist and Nutritionist
Lactation Consultant (International Board Certified)

Nena is a gentle, caring practitioner who aims to treat the cause of any disease using holistic principles which take the mind, body and spirit into consideration. She likes to empower people to make the changes they want and need to make for optimal health outcomes. 


With over 10 years in clinical practice, Nena has worked with patients experiencing a broad range of health conditions, including preconception, pregnancy and post-natal care, infant feeding, digestive complaints, mental health, thyroid and autoimmune conditions and achieving optimal wellbeing.

In 2013 Nena completed training as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and has a strong passion for helping families in their infant feeding journeys. She offers holistic care through her naturopathic skills and extensive breastfeeding knowledge, to achieve the best outcome for the mother-baby dyad. Nena provides clinical advice, information and support for breastfeeding concerns as well as unsettled infant behaviour and sleep.

Nena has been a member of the Goulds Natural Medicine team since completing her comprehensive clinical internship in the Apothecary in 2009. She moved to Hobart for the 6 month internship after completing a Bachelor of Naturopathy at Southern Cross University in Northern NSW. Her intention was to return to NSW once finished her Internship, however the rich Goulds history, culture and ethics enticed her to settle in Hobart. 


Outside of Goulds, Nena has a keen interest in acroyoga, parkour and moving in nature ~ all best done with friends. She is an avid foodie and will often spend time in the kitchen cooking up delicious healthy meals for her family, while also teaching her daughter about how food can be medicine.
