About me

My name is Dr. Sharon Silberstein, MD, IBCLC . I am a Medical Doctor, International Board Certified Lactation Counsellor, Specialist Tongue Tie Practitioner and mother of four small children. I graduated from medical school in Germany and specialised for over one year in Gynaecology and Obstetrics in Switzerland before moving to London in 2008 and starting my own family. I decided to take a career break and to devote my time to my children and have found my passion for breastfeeding when I had my own babies. I noticed how many mums around me were struggling and giving up breastfeeding due to the lack of support. I was blessed with a very straightforward and beautiful experience breastfeeding my babies and I recently weaned my youngest at the age of almost 3.  I realised I would like to be able to help others to share the same gift. I noticed that we doctors have very little training in breastfeeding and I decided to study for a diploma with Childbirth International as a Certified Breastfeeding Counsellor, which I received in 2014. When I realised how big the impact of Tongue Tie is on breastfeeding I decided to train at Southampton University and got certified in diagnosing and treating Tongue Ties in February 2016. I noticed that mothers go to their GP when they have mastitis or thrush and get a perscription and will soon return because the cause for the problem was not treated. I have certified as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant in 2019. I would like to provide medical advice as well as the breastfeeding support mothers need and treat the cause as well as the symptoms. 

I am registred and licenced to practice with the GMC (Registration 7011392), a member of the Association of Tongue Tie Practitioners and the Independent Doctors Federation, who do my annual appraisals. 

I am insured to perform Tongue Tie Divisions with Hiscox Insurance and with Corvelia for my work as a Lactation Consultant and Doctor.
