You may have heard the phrase "It takes a village to raise a child". Similarly, the best outcomes for infants with a tongue tie are seen in cases where  multidisciplinary team have been available to provide support and care to affected babies and carers.

If you are breastfeeding, support from a lactation consultant is key. Breastfeeding support groups and counsellors are very useful. A link to support in your area is here. Find a lactation consultant here.

Bodyworkers, such as craniosacral therapists or cranial osteopaths can identify and treat cranial nerve dysfunction and strain patterns that can occur as a result of position in utero or difficult delivery, or as a result of the tongue tie itself. Bodyworkers can also provide therapy to mothers which can help feeding along.
