Tongue Tie

 

We get a lot of calls and questions from parents regarding tongue ties,  or “Tethered Oral Tissues.” These are tiny tissues in the mouth that can cause breastfeeding problems.   Autumn and Laura have taken several hundred hours in continuing education on this topic, and have a lot of experience in supporting clients through this issue with their babies.  There is a great deal of misinformation around the topic of tongue ties, and we like to not only educate our families, but also empower them to research on their own.  You know what is right for your baby, and its best to be educated.  Many know that treatment for tongue ties, is not merely clipping a tissue and send you on your way.  We are here to educate and monitor your baby’s process through this “Oral Rehab.”  

If you have questions if your baby has a tongue tie, or would like some one on one support to help you work through this process, we are here to help!  Give us a call at anytime, and we will help get you on the right track and reaching your breastfeeding goals~

Here are some resources that you can look into to find out more information on the treatment, and rehabilitation of tethered oral tissues.
