Lactation Consultant and Tongue Tie Practitioner based in Northamptonshire, UK
Experienced Midwife, Lactation Consultant, Tongue Tie practitioner & Craniosacral Therapist
Parents contact me for skilled breastfeeding support or tongue tie division for their baby because of feeding difficulties. There are many reasons why a baby can struggle to feed including the birth process and a tongue tie. When you arrange an appointment with me you can be assured of an holistic approach to care.
Your initial appointment will include a free taster Craniosacral therapy (CST) treatment for your baby if there is time at the end of the appointment. I offer this free treatment due to the simple fact that we never look at the birth from the baby’s perspective. The baby went through the pregnancy and birth the same as you. How did you feel at the end of it? Babies are designed to cope with the stress and strain of birth and the majority cope very well. However for some it can be emotionally stressful & for others the birth process can result in tension, tightness and restriction. This might not always be visible but held more on the inside. CST can help to resolve these issues. It is also beneficial for babies who have been tongue tied as this can cause tension around the head and neck area. CST may improve feeding outcomes than a tongue tie division alone. A treatment after a tongue tie division is a lovely way to calm and settle both you and your baby and it completes the appointment in a gentle relaxing way. Please see link at the bottom of the page for more information on CST, or contact me direct.
