Tongue-tie Assessment Consultation

A tongue-tie is an extra piece of skin that goes from underneath the tongue to the floor of the mouth or lower gum and restricts the tongue’s movement. Sometimes it is attached to the tip of the tongue, sometimes further back under the tongue.
How does tongue-tie affect feeding?

Recent research has suggested that some babies with tongue-tie may experience feeding difficulties. This is because a free moving tongue is vital to enable the baby to attach effectively onto the breast and to remove an adequate amount of milk during feeding. Read more here. 

If it becomes apparent that a tongue-tie may be effecting breastfeeding you will have the option to be referred to the NHS or have a private Tongue-tie practitioner come to visit you in the comfort of your home.
This session can last 60-90mins.
