If you are experiencing feeding difficulties, your baby is unsettled during feeds or you are worried about your baby’s weight gain, then it may be that your baby has 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.
