Breastfeeding is natural, but it certainly doesn’t always come naturally. I know what it’s like to try to navigate these issues on your own. With my two sons I encountered tongue tie issues, clogged ducts, mastitis, oversupply, and feeding a preemie in the NICU. I’m honored to provide the love and support all mothers need to breastfeed successfully.
Visits can address latch and positioning issues, baby weight questions, low supply concern, pumping techniques, and more.

Tongue/Lip Tie Evaluation for the Breastfeeding Infant
Tethered oral tissue or Tongue and Lip ties can cause all sorts of breastfeeding issues.
- sleepy baby
- fussy baby
- baby not sleeping well
- baby not gaining well
- baby eating very frequently
- clogged ducts and mastitis
- painful latch and damaged nipples
- frequent spit up
I provide functional oral assessments to determine if baby is using their mouth in a functional way for breastfeeding and if the oral frenula are interfering in any way. I use a standardized assessment form with several checkpoints for function and appearance. I also observe a feeding session and make suggestions for improvement of symptoms.
If we determine a revision is necessary or desired I will provide you with a detailed care plan, exercises to ensure you get the most out of the revision, and referrals to area providers.
Price includes a 30 min follow up within 3 days of revision to address any concerns.
