This is a teaching day on the basics of the breastfed baby and tongue tie . We will cover identification of tongue tie and lip tie, signs and symptoms, treatment options and  case histories   

It is suitable for anyone involved with breastfeeding dyads…. IBCLCs, Midwives, PHNs, Doctors, Dentists, Voluntary breastfeeding counsellors, craniosacral Therapists, Osteopaths, Chiropractors…..

Babes in arms are most welcome (in fact encouraged!) The event is not suitable for older babies/toddlers/children who are very vocal and mobile. It is a formal teaching day and if your baby is unsettled, it’s best to step out and tend to their needs outside.

I have extensive experience of tongue tie/lip tie, frenotomy and helping parents decide what are the best options for their infants problems.  I do full  tongue function and suck assessment at every consult and if necessary refer to  breastfeeding supportive frenotomy dividers.  Contact 086-2312679 for an appointment.
