Lactation Consultant and Tongue Tie Practitioner based in Northamptonshire, UK
***Please see booking page for coronavirus information & current availability ***
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 Craniosacral therapy (CST) treatment for your baby. (Normally £25) My philosophy is to care and treat your baby as a little person not the problem. CST is safe for babies, is very relaxing and can help release areas of physical & emotional tension caused by the mechanics of the birth process. It is also beneficial in resolving any residual tension around the head and neck area after tongue tie division and therefore 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.
I currently hold clinics in Wellingborough, Northampton and Leicester. Home visits available in Northamptonshire, Leicestershire, Warwickshire, Cambridgeshire & Bedfordshire. Home visits available upon request within a 50mile radius of NN8. Visit the services page for pricing details.
