Tongue Tie Experts
Providing Expert Educational Resources for Parents and Professionals
Was your dream to breastfeed — but now it feels more like a struggle? Hint: It shouldn’t hurt to nurse your baby! Reading about tongue tie in babies feels confusing, and you’re struggling with the information you find.
As an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) — the highest certification for breastfeeding professionals — I get it. It’s complicated and remains a controversial topic in the breastfeeding world. You may not find the support you need in your baby’s pediatrician and they may lack specific training with tongue ties. Some women are told they don’t exist or are “mild.”
I’m here to provide extensive experience and utmost compassion to support your successful breastfeeding journey — even if your baby suffers from this tough condition. I know your breastfeeding goals matter deeply to you, and I care. My guide helps you figure out if your baby has a tongue tie and what to do next.
The lack of support breastfeeding families get is frustrating and unacceptable. To change that, I offer educational resources to clear up confusion about tongue ties and give solutions that work.

To successfully manage tongue tie requires comprehensive education and experience as a provider. So many healthcare professionals aren’t taught vital information to help babies — and there are families suffering from this complex medical issue. This knowledge plays an important role in lactation education. Without it, it’s difficult to help mothers succeed in their breastfeeding journey.
You’re in healthcare because you love giving and empowering people. It’s your mission and what fills your cup. The topic of tongue tie continues to come up at work and you feel like you can’t fully care for these families. You didn’t cover it enough (or at all!) during your education to feel successful in handling tongue ties. But you’re ready to learn more!
