I had been advised by my midwife that my son had a slight tongue tie which may have been contributing to his reflux and bitty feeding. The NHS wait was over 2 weeks and I was concerned if we waited that long my breastfeeding journey may have been cut short. Lauren was able to see me the day after my initial enquiry and was very reassuring. She carried out a thorough check first and spent time observing and supporting me feed. She was honest in her advice that the tongue tie procedure alone wouldn’t be a magic cure all but gave me lots of other advice to improve my feeding. The procedure itself was very quick and Lauren followed up with me a week later to ensure all was okay. Would highly recommend if anyone has suspected tongue tie or just generally struggling with breastfeeding.
