Private Tongue-Tie Consultation and Division Service


 

I will 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.

£200 (appointments take up to 90 min), should you need me for longer, I charge £30 per half hour thereafter

 

For follow up visits at a later date/ time I charge £75 per hour.

Breastfeeding Consultation via Skype

One to one breastfeeding consultation via Skype. This gives you the opportunity to ask questions and discuss any feeding issues you have. I will also be able to guide you in regards to position and attachment techniques. 

£50 per session (up to 1 hr)

This includes 1 initial antenatal consultation via email or over the phone plus 8 postnatal breastfeeding support visits which can start in the hospital straight after your baby is born and continues in your home.
