I am an experienced Midwife and Tongue-tie practitioner. I work in a local hospital on Delivery Suite and also work in a NHS tongue-tie clinic, seeing on average 12 babies per clinic. I completed my tongue-tie training at Southampton University Hospital in 2014 and joined the Association of Tongue-tie Practioners. I now work under a Practice Privilege Scheme with Private Midwives, UK Birth Centres. Private Midwives are regulated by the CQC and fully insured. My practice is regulated by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (PIN no: 13A0915E) and I have a valid CRB and full insurance.
As a student midwife I completed my dissertation on tongue-tie which highlighted the very real feeding issues it can cause. Having had over two years experience in the clinic I have seen the difference tongue-tie division can make to both breast and bottle fed babies. Correcting a tongue-tie early can be beneficial for both the parents and baby however, there can be long waits for the service under the NHS.
