hey there


When a child is diagnosed with an oral restriction, such as a tongue tie, there is often a lot of pressure to get a frenectomy done as soon as possible.

Parents are told that if they don’t do a frenectomy, their child will have issues down the road with breastfeeding, solids, sleep apnea, etc. ​​

But many parents aren’t given the time or resources to explore other options of care.

So the question is: what can be done holistically to help address oral restrictions and breastfeeding problems – whether it’s instead of doing a frenectomy, or in addition to doing one?​

This episode of the SHE podcast explores the answer to that question as I speak with Midline Revolution – a group that combines chiropractic care, myofascial cranial therapy, and lactation consultation to help mothers and babies navigate issues like oral restrictions and breastfeeding in the first year of life.

Together, we explore how to holistically treat tongue and lip ties!
