does this sound familiar?
Trust me, I’ve been there!
YOU’RE NOT ALONE
You’re experiencing this problem because…
01. There isn’t enough information out there
It can sometimes take knowing another parent who has been through a tongue or lip-tie journey for a new parent to hear about oral ties. Checking for ties is becoming more common, but not all providers have experience in this area or training, and some think it’s a fad.
02. Oral Ties Cases are Increasing
Whether or not it has to do with the increasing awareness around oral ties or the increased ingestion of folate during pregnancy to ensure the baby is healthy remains inconclusive, but people are becoming more aware of ties as the number of babies with ties cases increases.
03. It takes a team approach
The care team approach is really the missing piece to any oral tie journey. Without it, an oral tie may be released but continue to work the way it always has due to muscle memory. In this Whole Care Toolkit, we give you missing tools to add to your toolbox so that you can put the pieces together.
IMAGINE HOW IT WOULD FEEL IF…
