Tongue Tie Treatment Worcestershire

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."

Beautiful Bump Photography Worcestershire

As a maternity therapist I have the pleasure of working with many beautiful mums to be at Breathe Holistic Therapy Kidderminster.

I am privileged to watch my maternity reflexology and pregnancy massage client's bodies develop as they go through their pregnancy. Many couples now choose to celebrate this with a pregnancy photography session. I know a lot about pregnancy but nothing about photography so I have asked a local photographer to share some advise on maternity photo shoots.


Hey! I'm alex, I'm a local photographer in Worcestershire - I specialise in newborn, bump to baby and family.

Wow so you're a mum to be!! 
Having a child myself I know all the changes that happen to your body during that wonderful 9 months - what a great adventure you're on. 
I remember the stage " your really glowing " I never saw it myself, but now photographing pregnant mumma's I see it! You look absolutely breathtaking. There you are with a life inside you waiting to enter the big wide world, it's truly amazing!

My maternity sessions are very relaxed and comfortable, being completely led by you; would you like to be gracefully nude? Would you prefer to be a completely natural shoot of you bump and partner? Studio or location? 

These are just some of the questions we will talk through and see what exactly you want. 
If you change your mind last minute and think "ah no... I cannot bare to show anything"... again the session on the day is completely led by you.

Are you thinking what do I wear to a maternity session? How do I dress?... I always say go with what you're comfortable in. The jeans with a casual shirt is a nice look - dresses are great for showing the bump proudly. I recommend all colours, bright, dark and graceful white.

 

Makeup and hair, again that's your decision, you know your best look and what you feel best in.  I also here at Alexandra Creative Photography have set out photographic pregnancy dresses that can be used if you choose to do so. 

A lot of mums-to-be say they couldn't believe how comfortable they were in my presence on the first day we met. I recommend pregnancy sessions from 30+ weeks, with booking your pregnancy session at 12 + weeks.
