Tongue Tie Treatment (Frenulotomy)
Not all ‘tongue ties’ cause a problem with feeding and can be left. However, if your baby is experiencing feeding problems due to a tight or short frenulum, or you are concerned about future difficulties, it may help to have the ‘tongue tie’ released (divided using a special type of surgical scissors).
As an experienced Lactation Consultant I will carrying out a full breastfeeding assessment. I will assess your baby’s tongue function and advise as to whether the ‘tie’ is likely to be causing the baby feeding difficulties and discuss with you whether you wish to go ahead and have it divided or not. Appointments are available at a time to suit you and your family. I offer prompt home visits to release the tongue tie and support you with the on-going care of your baby’s feeding.
