Update 2019: Leanne is no longer working with private patients. I am trying to find another practitioner to introduce here.
As a reflexologist working with pregnant and post natal clients I am lucky to learn from many other maternity and baby practitioners. I recently gained some vital knowledge about tongue tie from local tongue tie specialist and midwife Leanne Cruickshanks.
Leanne shared her passion for helping babies with tongue tie.
" If you are having problems feeding your baby and you know or think your baby may have a tongue tie I can help, give advice and support you.
I provide appointments for review of tongue tie and if required for the division of your baby’s tongue tie. I provide divisions on babies up to 16 weeks of age (if baby was born early then I can see your baby up to 16 weeks from their expected date of delivery).
I am an experienced tongue tie practitioner and have been providing divisions for ten years and am a Registered Midwife with an extended breast feeding knowledge.
I aim to provide a prompt and personal individualised service that will work in partnership with you and your baby. I am happy to provide a free initial telephone consultation. Following consultation I may recommend that baby visits my clinic for further assessment and potentially has a tongue tie division.
I am not only passionate about tongue ties but also about providing, enhancing and helping my mothers, babies and their families feeding journeys. I am dedicated to giving care that considers babies and their families individually and works in partnership with them to make decisions that hopefully positively impact on them. I have a methodical, considerate approach to care based on current evidence and over ten years experience in tongue tie and 18 years experience in midwifery care. I feel privileged to do what I do and love my job and the care I am lucky to be able to provide."
