Family Wellness Clinic

Ensuring healthy families since 2006

About The Family Wellness Clinic

I am a registered nurse and midwife who loves babies. I developed my passion for babies and pregnancy after the birth of my first child.

Years of experience in a baby clinic and having my own children who have had their own share of problems has given me that special edge with my patients. I am also a South African Certified Perinatal Educator. Contact me on 0848671223 or complete the contact form to get in touch.

More About Sharon

Sharon Oates
B.Cur & SACPE

I am one of those very few people in the world who is blessed to have known from about 7 years of age, that I wanted to be a nurse and help people. I applied at one university for a nursing degree and did not have a second option should that not work out. I have a calling to help others and this is what I enjoy the most in my life.

I am a registered nurse and midwife who developed a love for babies and helping new parents navigate the turbulent waters of new parenthood. My skill with babies and needles developed after the birth of my first child when I left the hospital and working shifts to start working less hours to be with my family more.

In my different positions that I held, I discovered my passion for babies and realised that parents need a safe place to vaccinate their babies and ask all the questions they may have as well as to see how their baby is developing. That is when I opened my practice.

I really am passionately invested in the long term health of the families that I serve.
