Tongue Tie Assessment & Division
babies from newborn - 12 months
About the tongue tie division procedure:
The baby will be wrapped in a blanket and laid flat on a surface like a changing mat. An adult (parent / friend) will hold the baby’s head still while the mouth is gently opened to expose the frenulum.
The frenulum is cut quickly with a pair of single use sterile, blunt scissors. Once the frenulum has been divided, sterile gauze is applied to the tongue to stem any bleeding. There will sometimes be a diamond shaped wound left under the tongue.
There is usually a little bleeding after the procedure which normally stops within a few minutes. The action of feeding usually stops the bleeding and this is always checked before the end of the visit. A leaflet will be given on aftercare.

Sleep consultations are a guide for parents from newborn to two-and-a-half years old.
I believe in a holistic approach which encompasses the needs of the individual child and family. Depending on the age of the child, detailed information and techniques are given to guide parents into facilitating excellent sleep patterns in their young children.
Babies and children are never too young to be guided into peaceful and happy sleeping patterns. My methods are extremely successful and yet very gentle in their approach.
Telephone and Skype consultations are available and very effective. In home visits are available if you live within a 30 mile radius of NN5 (additional miles at £2.00 per mile).
£230 First consultation, home visit, including in-depth plan and follow-up call after a month
