We are here to provide comprehensive assistance and guidance to help you and your baby navigate the wonderful world of feeding. With our specialized knowledge and expertise in lactation and infant development, we offer a range of services tailored to address specific feeding challenges and promote a positive experience for both you and your little one.
We will evaluate the latch technique and positioning to ensure that your baby is effectively emptying the breast, promoting efficient milk transfer, and minimizing discomfort for you.
If your baby is experiencing difficulties with feeding due to muscle tension, torticollis, or other jaw and neck restrictions, we will assess and provide appropriate treatment to optimize their feeding abilities.
We will analyze your baby's tongue and mouth movements during feeding, identifying any issues with their suck mechanics, and implementing targeted interventions to enhance their feeding skills.
If your baby requires a frenectomy (tie revision of lip or tongue), we offer specialized bodywork techniques to support their healing process and improve their feeding outcomes.
With a doctor's referral, we can assist in the treatment of blocked ducts or other inflammatory conditions affecting the mother's breast, utilizing appropriate physiotherapy techniques to promote healing and relieve discomfort.
If you are experiencing neck, shoulder, or wrist pain as a result of breastfeeding positioning, we can provide targeted physiotherapy interventions to alleviate musculoskeletal discomfort and support your overall well-being.
To ensure clarity on the scope of physiotherapy as it relates to feeding, please note the following:
For help with the above, you can always book a consultation with one of our Registered Lactation Consultants.
We are dedicated to working collaboratively with you, your baby, and other healthcare professionals to provide the best possible support for your feeding journey.
