My name is Dr. Sharon Silberstein, MD, CBC (CBI). I am a medical doctor, certified breastfeeding 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 starting my own family here in London. 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 am currently breastfeeding my youngest. 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 about 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 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.
I am insured to perform Tongue Tie Divisions and DBS checked.
