I currently work in a central London teaching hospital as a Midwife so I have extensive and current breast/infant feeding support experience. I am registered with the Nursing & Midwifery Council as an Adult Nurse (qualified 2007) and as a Midwife (qualified 2010). I trained in Southampton to assess & divide tongue ties and I have full membership of The Association of Tongue Tie Practitioners, maintaining full Indemnity Insurance. BabyTongueTie is CQC registered.
On a personal note I am also a mother to two children, one of which I breastfed and the other I mix fed. I offer a practical yet evidence-based approach to the care, advice & support I give you for your baby.
I am an experienced, qualified, caring health professional who is also a parent. So if your baby requires a tongue tie division or you require infant feeding support, then I am here to help. I offer home visits and appointments at my clinic in Cheshunt, Hertfordshire. My garden studio means I can offer professional clinical care in a home from home environment. I understand that choice and rapid access to care are critical when there is an infant feeding issue so Im glad to provide both care options. The clinic is in a prime location and created for clients who are out of my travel distance area or cannot wait for a home visit so wish to travel to me.

The Baby Tongue Tie care ethos
You will get professional care in the comfort of your home or my clinic. This consists of an infant feeding assessment and a tongue tie assessment for baby. If a tongue tie is confirmed, then the quick procedure of releasing (snipping) the tie is explained & performed with your informed consent. Feeding support is given afterwards; if baby is breast feeding then this includes positioning and attachment advice. Aftercare information and follow-up phone calls are included. A visit will last around 45mins. This service is for breast or bottlefed babies.
Correcting a tie early on is hugely beneficial but the NHS can have long waiting times for their clinics. Benefits for baby can include being more content, less windy, less dribbling from a bottle teat, improved weight gain, vomiting less, easier latch to breast that is maintained and quicker feeds. Additionally, mum can find breast feeding comfier, have less nipple trauma, longer gaps between feeds & a reduced incidence of engorgement/mastitis.
