Tongue Tie Practitioner & Lactation Consultant

Your Therapist:  Petra Traynor


An experienced midwife & tongue tie practitioner offering a range of services to support you in feeding and caring for your baby. I have over 20 years experience as a midwife supporting breastfeeding mums


I have been an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) for 7 years and this allows me to indulge in my passion for breastfeeding.   I can support you in all aspects of feeding your baby - from the early days when things are getting established, to problem solving and the challenges of feeding older babies such as support with weaning.  I am a member of the Lactation Consultants of Great Britain (LCGB.)

I set up my consultancy practice 7 years ago and I have expanded to include a private tongue tie division service & Craniosacral therapy treatments.  My practice is fully registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) 


Tongue tie division is available for both breastfed and bottle fed babies with feeding difficulties up to the age of 6 months.  Tongue tie can severely impact on a baby’s ability to feed correctly and can therefore create many feeding problems. Common indicators for a tongue tie can include :-


Sore/damaged nipples.

Painful feeding

Recurrent block ducts or mastitis

Babies unable to latch correctly

Tiring easily when feeding

Wanting to feed constantly

Excessive wind & hiccups

Completing a bottle feed quickly or taking a long time to complete a feed

Excessive dribbling/choking/coughing


I provide an holistic approach to care treating the baby not the condition.  As such all babies receive a free Craniosacral therapy treatment at their initial appointment. (Visit the Craniosacral therapy page)
