For the safety of babies, parents and family members and in light of current government guidelines; I will be wearing personal protective equipment at home visits.
Private Tongue-Tie Consultation and Division Service
I will see you in the comfort of your home and always do a Breastfeeding assessment first, this includes observing breastfeeding and hand expressing and find out about your baby's feeding times &length, wet and dirty nappies and changing stools, baby's behaviour on your breast, how settled your baby is after feeding and how comfortable feeding is.
I will then assess your baby’s tongue appearance and function using the Hazelbaker assessment tool.
If there is a tongue tie which is affecting breastfeeding than I will take your consent first before offering you the procedure.
Tongue tie division involves first wrapping your baby securely. I will then ask you or your husband to hold your baby's head and shoulders securely while I lift baby's tongue and then using sterile scissors to divide the tie. Afterwards I may use sterile gauze to press on the side. Your baby will be handed to you to feed straight away.
I will support you with breastfeeding now and develop a feeding plan.
After the division I will further support you via text, phone call or via email.
