Tongue Tie Practitioners North West

We suggest a few private practitioners as some mothers have found that they can diagnose and divide a tongue tie quickly. They do not represent La Leche League and they may express opinions that are contrary to the information we share. When we pass on contact details it is to give you options and it's for you to decide what helps you and your baby and leave the rest behind.
