Let’s explore the what, why, how and who of tongue tie. How can we best support families through the tongue tie maze?
“…The largest part of a doula’s work is listening. We listen to the stories of mothers and fathers; the narratives of the birth, the emotions of new parenthood, the highs and the lows of life with a baby…[One] day I realised I’d listened to one too many tongue tie stories. It was time to give all these women a voice. I came home and announced on facebook that I wanted stories from parents about their tongue-tied babies. Not even I could have predicted the pain and suffering that appeared in my inbox over the next few weeks…”
There started my obsession with tongue tie; talking to mothers, breastfeeding supporters and Lactation Consultants about tongue tie, working with families with tongue tie babies, learning from the mothers and babies who came my way. All the time, the stories flooded in, teaching me more and deepening my passion to learn more, dispel myths and spread the word.
