Your Expert Guides with Real-Life Know-How!

Releasing Tongue Ties:

Here’s what our parents are saying...

“Oh wow! I can actually see the difference!! That is so amazing!”

- Brandi H.

“He is latching more deeply now. It doesn’t hurt anymore. Thank you so much!!” 

- Amanda L.

“She’s really going to gain weight now!”

- Brian G.

A tongue tie occurs when the skin under your baby's tongue, called the frenulum, is shorter than usual. It limits tongue movement, which can cause problems with feeding, growing, and talking.

Give Yourself the Gift of Painless Feeding

But here's the fantastic news:

We have a simple and fast way to make it better right in our office! 

Releasing the tongue tie as an infant can make feeding more comfortable and prevent speaking challenges.  Act early! You'll notice the difference right away.

Checking Jaundice: 

Newborns often have their heels pricked, but we use painless equipment to check jaundice with immediate results.

We closely monitor jaundice levels for your baby's health and your peace of mind.

Needle-free and oh-so-easy!

Nurturing your Baby’s Circumcision

Deciding on circumcision for your baby can be a tough choice. Some parents consider appearance, while others consider potential health benefits.

Healing with Love: 

No matter what you choose, we're here to support you in caring for your baby and helping you feel confident as a parent.
