    The Truth about Tongue Ties

    The Truth about Tongue Ties

    Tongue ties are such a vast, controversial, and often misunderstood topic that we brought in pediatric otolaryngologist (ENT) surgeon Dr. Elise Graham to help us wade through the topic. She is also a mom to two boys with a complex breastfeeding journey of her own, which has brought her to shine a postpartum lens onto her field that she admits can gain from providing more support to patients, especially as information about tongue ties can vary greatly and specialized support can be hard to find. In addition to being a pediatric surgeon, Dr. Graham is also working towards becoming a certified lactation consultant (IBCLC) and earning a fellowship through the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine, which is why we’re very excited to have her guide us through the evidence-based truth about tongue ties!

She also speaks candidly about her struggles with mental health in early pregnancy, through pregnancy loss and into postpartum, and about how she wishes she had gone into her pregnancy a bit more prepared and knowledgeable about her birth preferences and options.
