Abstract:

The most talked about discussions amongst parents or professional groups across the world is post frenotomy wound management. In the last 15-20 years of development, the field of oral restrictions has yet to see an evidence-based approach or even just a global consensus on approaches and their efficacy in wound management. Therefore lactation consultants, dentists, and surgeons have been using their clinical reasoning to choose the methods and protocols for individual breastfeeding dyads. Nevertheless, the current unregulated wound management protocols have been often reported as traumatic experiences for infants, parents, and care providers. Additionally, a physical oral examination of an infant during the assessment, evaluation, and treatment, and rehabilitation of oral restrictions is essential and vital in an IBCLC clinical practice. It's often seen as a ‘necessary evil’ in clinical work. Some infants may be at risk of reattachment and/or trauma which can have lifelong impacts such as triggers for past memories, anxiety, distress or discomfort, or even PTSD. This can lead to oral aversion symptoms, complete refusal to latch and breastfeed, turning away from food, and gagging, coughing, and choking. Therefore, a respectable trauma-informed approach to oral examination and wound management is based on the fundamental principles of respect for bodily autonomy ensuing a sense of safety, trust, and connection.

Building a Clinical Tongue-Tie Care Plan Families Can Work With
  • Bio

  • Learning Objectives

Gina has been assisting breastfeeding mothers for over 20 years, and now through telehealth all over the world. She knows that while most pregnant mothers expect to breastfeed, very few receive proper preparation for the difficulties and the rollercoaster of emotions when there are problems.

When Gina had her first baby, like many new mothers she was overwhelmed by conflicting information: at the hospital, the pediatrician’s, and from well-meaning friends and family.

Her appreciation of the volunteer support she received led her to want to “pay it forward” and help others. She first trained as a volunteer LLL Leader in Houston, Texas, then as a birth doula in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and finally sat for the exam to become an IBCLC in Seville, Spain. She continues to lead monthly breastfeeding support meetings online and in-person.

Gina believes that all mothers deserve quality emotional and educational support. It should not be just a matter of good luck. She's dedicated to giving effective guidance and caring support with real results. Her greatest satisfaction is the joy of seeing that look on both mothers’ and babies’ faces that says: Just what I always wanted!

1: List at least 3 key points to share with parents to help prepare them for their infant's tongue-tie release.
2: Describe indicators that an infant is ready for a tongue-tie release.
3: List at least 3 key points to share with parents to help prepare them for caring for their infant after tongue-tie release.

Abstract:

When tethered oral tissues (TOTS) are impacting feeding, a care plan must be tailored to the unique circumstances of the parent(s), the baby and the reality of their environment. Parents are often feeling overwhelmed and desperate and from the moment of our initial consult, our nurturing care and guidance provide safety and relaxation. When parents feel understood, they often cry and release a massive amount of stress. The flow of oxytocin and endorphins can soothe their emotional pain as they begin to trust that help is possible. We calmly identify areas needing attention, we prioritise them, and we find out what is most easily doable for the parent(s) among the top priorities. Each step of the care plan offers choices (in regards to feeding, positioning, milk supply, exercises, etc) that will positively impact both the wellbeing and the feeding experience. We help parents to understand that feeding is a whole body activity and that an improvement in any area gives ripples of improvement in the others. We make adjustments as needed, and the changes begin to flourish. We replace fear and confusion with confidence and flexibility. Parents understand “the why” of each step and begin to enjoy that they themselves are driving the positive change!

Abstract:

Parents are seeking answers to their baby’s feeding difficulties. They verbalize that they are confused by conflicting and contradicting information. They seek opinions from the internet, social media, friends and health care providers that further frustrate them. These families often have to self-navigate this feeding and oral health journey for their baby. They are seeking a functional assessment of the baby’s ability to organize the baby’s suck, swallow and breath pattern to get a differential analysis. Finding providers who can administer the assessment and provide lactation support to the feeding difficulties often means multiple appointments, different offices, and prolonged time. Collaborative practice models place a focus on co-evaluations, co-treatments and care plans to provide the parents with a comprehensive guide of solutions and tools. This allows them to facilitate their baby’s oral motor habilitation and improve their feeding abilities in a timely manner within a single location. These complete assessments, therapeutic modalities and care plans help families feel empowered to make the best decisions on whether to proceed with a frenotomy or not. This program will include 2 case reviews of a family who chose to do the frenotomy and one who did not and how the pre and post frenotomy support care assisted these decisions.
