If you are experiencing continuing feeding difficulties, your baby has unresolved weight problems, very unsettled or reflux issues; these could be symptoms of tongue tie.
Tongue Tie is also called Ankyloglossia, which comes from the Greek for ‘crooked tongue’. It is a congenital condition where the membrane that attaches the tongue to the floor of the mouth (the frenulum) is shorter or tighter than usual. This may cause restriction of tongue movement and make it difficult for your baby to feed.
At Carmenta Life we provide the Tongue Tie Assessment and Division. The assessment and division is performed by Julie Carden, qualified and experienced Tongue Tie Practitioner, IBCLC Lactation Consultant, Registered General Nurse with extra high level training in Special and Intensive Care of the Newborn as part of her Higher Diploma in Midwifery Studies.
Julie offers free informal tongue tie assessments during the Breastfeeding Cafe on Thursdays between 1-3pm.
Private clinic at Carmenta Life
Private Tongue Tie assessments – A consultation lasts up to an hour. Julie takes a detailed history of any feeding issues and completes a research based assessment for tongue tie and tongue function for your baby. A restrictive tongue tie can be divided within the same appointment with parental consent, if appropriate. Breast or bottle feeding support is also offered.
