Our professionals are here to help you through your health and wellness queries – for you and your children.

WellVine professionals are qualified and experienced doctors, who have been thoroughly vetted before joining the WellVine network. This includes experienced General Practitioners (GPs) as well as Paediatricians, as we see children’s health as our core focus. We also have a range of other health professionals such as nutritionists, lactation consultations and baby and toddler sleep counsellors, and our network is growing continuously.
Consultations start from as little as £30.
Just select a professional based on their profile and expertise and book a consultation. Or simply book a consultation based on the time slot most convenient for you.
To pay for a consultation, you will need to have ‘credits’ on your account. We will be updating our system shortly to make the payment process easier for you. In the meantime, please bear with us. You can add credit equal to the cost of your current consultation, or you can choose to add extra credit so you have it available next time you book a consultation. You can add credit by clicking here or going to your ‘Dashboard’ (via the dropdown menu on the upper right corner of the screen).

Lactation (Breastfeeding) Consultant IBCLC

Healthcare Experience

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)
