Our aim is to provide specialist support and treatment for babies with tongue-tie who are experiencing feeding difficulties.
We can see babies up to the age of 6 months and they can be breast or bottle fed.
Free tongue-tie assessment and post procedure check ups are available within our private clinics or if you would also like a free osteopathic assessment or follow up at the same time we can see you in our Chiltern Apple Tree Clinic on Monday mornings.
We are able to assess and divide tongue-ties in our private clinics or in the comfort of your home. This will involve taking a thorough medical and breastfeeding history and assessing your baby's tongue function and feeding ability. You will be fully informed about the tongue-tie division procedure, the benefits and the potential risks. If your baby has a tongue-tie and you consent to the procedure your baby's tongue-tie can be divided within the initial consultation. Specialist feeding support will also be available to you. If the decision is made not to have the procedure you will be offered support with other strategies to help resolve your feeding difficulties. You can arrange for a tongue-tie division at a later date if you would prefer to work on feeding techniques first.
Consultations are also available for those who just want breastfeeding support and follow up.
(Initial consultations up to 1.5hrs)
The private clinics are at Lincoln House, in Princes Risborough, where there are purpose built consultation rooms.
You can book an appointment online or contact us directly by phone or email. If there isn’t a time available to suit you we may be able to arrange an ad hoc clinic appointment on another day.
Once you have made an appointment your confirmation email will give you a link to our pre-consultation form We would be grateful if you could please complete this as having more information beforehand will save time in the consultation.
In preparation for the appointment it would be helpful if you could please bring your red book, hospital notes (if relevant) muslin, blanket and a ready made up feed for your baby if you are not breastfeeding. Also, if possible, please try to time for your baby to be hungry for the appointment start time . This is because it is useful for your baby to be able to feed straight after the procedure if it is carried out. A very short feed while you are waiting to be seen is not a problem if your baby is very unsettled / hungry.
(Initial consultations up to 2 hrs)

In preparation for your visit it would be helpful if you could please try to time for your baby to be hungry for about 45 minutes after the visit start time. If the procedure is carried out it is helpful for your baby to be able to feed straight away.
