Tongue Tie assessment clinic

For: Breast and bottle fed infants up to the age 16 weeks

If you are experiencing feeding difficulties and suspect your baby of having a tongue tie (sometimes known as frenulotomy or ankyloglossia), or if a tongue tie has been diagnosed by a health professional, a referral may be made to our specialist midwives in infant feeding / tongue tie practitioners, Becky and Caroline.

The referral must be made by completing the below form and attaching it to an email to: wah-tr.Tongue-Tie@nhs.net

Tongue Tie Referral Form

- Please note, if you're using an Apple device (such as a iPhone or iPad) please use the Pages app to complete the form, and then convert back into a word document before sending via email. This will ensure we can read the referral.

On our receipt of this completed form we will contact you by telephone within a week.

During the call we will assess the need for you to attend an appointment at the Tongue Tie assessment clinic.

Clinics are held three times a week and are located in the Children’s Clinic at either the Alexandra, in Redditch or Kidderminster Hospitals.
