Throughout her years as a midwife, Deirdre has come into contact with many babies with tongue ties, and with mums having difficulties breastfeeding. She has more than 11 years’ experience in breastfeeding support and became a fully qualified IBCLC lactation consultant in June 2019.
When her own baby suffered tongue tie, Deirdre became passionate about helping other mothers and babies to help them overcome their breastfeeding issues. In November 2018 she trained and became certified and insured to perform tongue tie release (frenotomy) in babies. She continues to release tongue ties and support mothers and babies weekly, in the clinic Tongue Tie Cork.
