A few months ago, a mom came to see me with a baby who could not breastfeed well. She had reflux and did not sleep well either. The mom was depressed and like many times, I was the last stop in a line of many practitioners. Here is her testimony:
I reached out to Kate when my second daughter, A., was four weeks old. I had consulted our pediatricians, dentist, and multiple lactation specialists for help with our breastfeeding issues, and had attempted two separate tongue tie revisions with no noticeable impact. In our first appointment, Kate pinpointed the root of our issues, which began in utero with prolonged fetal malpositioning, resulting in muscle and fascial compression and cesarean birth (and torticollis and tongue and jaw issues that made breastfeeding difficult and painful for both of us).
