    • Parenting

Let's talk about tongue ties!

In this episode I share my conversation with pediatric physical therapist Brita DeStefano to demystify tongue ties.

Brita shares both her personal and professional experience with tongue ties and the stressors and emotions that can come with this experience.

Together we discuss:

*What exactly is a tongue tie?

*What are some stressors that can come with this experience?

*Experiences of being invalidated by providers and questions to ask to make sure you're getting the support you and your child need.

*The impact of tongue tie on the parent's mental health and relationships

*Addressing those feelings of guilt for not knowing or intervening earlier if the tongue tie was missed

Brita offers in-home visits, virtual consults, and online courses to help empower parents to connect with their little ones through purposeful play. Connect with her below!
