As an experienced International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, Sharon works with parents to resolve breastfeeding issues – from birth to older babies. She helps parents to consider the options available to them and encourages them to decide what they would like to do next in their breastfeeding journey. Her kind and friendly approach helps parents develop their own tailor-made feeding plan according to their family needs. She has three young children of her own, who have helped teach her that every child is different and that each mother-and-baby pair is unique.
Sharon has been supporting new families with breastfeeding since 2009, initially as a Breastfeeding Counsellor with the The National Childbirth Trust (NCT) and as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) since 2011. She works as part of a group, London Lactation Consultants, which offers support to new parents across London in their own homes. She has helped hundreds of parents with a range of breastfeeding challenges, including issues such as positioning, tongue-tie or milk supply. Sharon also has a Diploma of Higher Education in breastfeeding counselling from the University of Bedfordshire (2009)
