I run 2 free drop in groups where I offer free information and support. These groups can get very busy and as a result the assessment and support I give will be brief and limited and is absolutely not a substitute for the more thorough assessment and support I can offer privately. These groups should be seen as an addition to support from the NHS or from me privately and not as a replacement for it. In terms of tongue-tie assessment I can provide enough information to help you decide if further assessment with a view to division is something you need to or wish to pursue. However, whether you then go via the NHS or private routes for this, a more thorough feeding and tongue-tie assessment should be carried out by the practitioner prior to the division. For this reason I do not offer discounts to families seen for assessment in these groups.
