Tongue-Tie

Katherine has extensive experience and training in carrying out Frenulotomies – both within the NHS and in private practice. She was trained at both Southampton General Hospital, and Kings College Hospital where she currently works  as the Team Leader of a large NHS Tongue-tie service. She continues to participate in continuous clinical governance, access to ongoing professional development, and training. She has full medical indemnity insurance for both Lactation Consultancy and Frenulotomy. Katherine accepts referrals from midwives; health visitors; Lactation Consultants (IBCLC); accredited Breastfeeding counsellors (NCT, Breastfeeding Network, LLL and ABM) and GPs. Parents can of course self-refer.

We treat babies aged eight days to 26 weeks who have a condition called tongue-tie. This means they have a tight piece of skin between the underside of their tongue and the floor of their mouth that makes it difficult for them to breastfeed.

We carry out a small operation which releases their tongue and allows them to latch on and breastfeed properly. We treat tongue-tie in infants aged eight days to 26 weeks that is causing breastfeeding difficulties.

Patients must be prepared correctly. Please follow the checklist on our referral forms if you book an appointment.

We do not treat babies:

  • with teeth
  • that are exclusively bottle-fed
  • for speech problems.
