Our very own Megan Van Noy is a new mommy. She suspected her baby would be born tongue tied since she was and her partner was. She had her team ready and in place: an IBCLC picked out and a release provider. Even being in the field and hearing other mom's stories, it was a hard emotional journey. Difficulty latching, painful nursing, inefficient suck, nipple chomping, and reflux. All the classic red flags. Megan got firsthand experience to know in your "Mom gut" there was something off and likely a tie and being told by the nurse, and pediatrician there wasn't.

She followed all the recommended steps: IBCLC, CST before the release (Cranial Sacral Therapy, see our podcast about CST), and a CO2 laser with Health Latch Dr JT in Washington. Breastfeeding was still a struggle and the milk supply was too low and she had to grieve not being able to breastfeed after all that. Megan's story is an encouraging reminder that we can do everything right, and be prepared, and it may still be hard post release. You are doing great mom's, do your best, and if all else fails we will work with your kids for Myofunctional Therapy when they are about 5.

Shout out to baby whisperers we love. @Health.Latch For JT who is a pediatric dentist who only releases ties now, and his Naturalpath and CST Dr Ghormley. Find a provider @circle.healthlatch . @MilkMattersPT for Dr Gigi Tadros a baby PT.
