Are tongue ties underdiagnosed? Are they overdiagnosed? Depending on who you ask, you seem to get a different answer. Every time you send your client to the pediatric dentist that specializes in revisions… you get the same result: this baby apparently has a tie that the dentist wants to address.
But how can you be 100% confident in assessing babies’ needs for revisions? What are the symptoms of a tongue tie you need to be aware of? And what are the long-term implications for baby’s development? You might need to re-evaluate when you are doing your assessment- the newborn exam isn’t necessarily ideal. Take this course to fill in those lingering knowledge gaps and give you the confidence you need to empower your clients with their next steps!
There’s a time and place for everything.
Take this course to learn the when, why, and how of tongue-tie assessment. We will take a deep dive into the etiology and history of the tongue tie, learning when, why, and how to accurately assess tongue ties. This is a skill you simply can’t afford not to finesse. Your clients will continue to have questions about this issue- and you need to have the foundational knowledge to equip you in gathering YOUR local team to address them. Taking this course will empower you to KNOW when you need to refer your clients to that awesome pediatric dentist or ENT doctor. Let us help you leave the guess-work behind in favor of much greater clarity!
Melissa has been helping with lactation through La Leche League as a volunteer since 2012 and professionally as an IBCLC since 2018. She has been a student midwife, midwife’s birth assistant and doula since 2017. As a former certified teacher, it is important for her to educate her clients and other professionals in order to achieve optimal health outcomes. She has worked with over 100 families each year assessing lactating dyads experiencing difficulties. She addresses problems the dyad has encountered through assessment, education, counseling, exercises and appropriate referral where needed. She has seen varying approaches to lactation difficulties and likes to suggest an evidence-based approach to having informed consent conversations for all new families by teaching other care providers the things she has learned in practice as an IBCLC. She is also a wife, and a homeschooling mom of 3 children, 2 dogs, 4 cats, and a bearded dragon.
