Frenectomy Revision Support

When a baby is unable to latch properly, it affects the breastfeeding relationship. It can be devastating to the mother when she has continued pain.  If the pain continues, it is important that the breastfeeding relationship is evaluated by a Lactation Professional.  Our Lactation Experts at Arkansas Family Doulas are trained to recognize what is typical in a breastfeeding relationship and when there may be a little more going on.  We can recognize the symptoms of lip and tongue tie and help set up the mother and baby to be evaluated by a physician who can properly evaluate and diagnose a lip and tongue tie if it's present.

He is the first physician in the state of Arkansas to make sure his breastfeeding mothers have access to Lactation Support post revision and the days following the procedure.
