Where Should We Dig? Not All Gold Is Buried Under the Tongue

  • Duration: 540 Mins
  • Credits: 1 CERP, 1 L-CERP, 1 CNE, 1 CME, 0.1 Midwifery CEU, 1 Dietetic CEU
  • Learning Format: Webinar

Abstract:

Carol will explain how the sources of tongue and oral dysfunction aren’t always in the mouth. Sometimes the gold is buried elsewhere. She will discuss torques and twists in the body that extend into the floor of the mouth and express themselves as a lack of tongue mobility. She will discuss how fetal lie and restricted fetal mobility cause babies to grow in ways that negatively impact their breastfeeding. These things may masquerade as and/or exacerbate tongue mobility issues disguised as short frenula. Carol will also explain the CST treatment approach for these babies.

Learning Objectives:

Objective 1:Participants will assess for deep anterior line restrictions that masquerade as or contribute to short frenula.
Objective 2: Participants will list fetal lie conditions that cause these deep anterior line restrictions.
Objective 3: Participants will describe the CST approach when revision and IBCLC care alone don’t produce the desired results.
