Show Notes

Special guest Val Gent from Let’s Eat Paediatric Speech Pathology joins me on the show today to talk about how speech pathology works and specifically discuss tongue ties and how this affects children.

Val decided to move into paediatric speech pathology when she was moved by a baby she encountered on her university practicum, and has been inspired to work with children in the area of food and feeding ever since.

A tongue tie is something babies can be born with, ranging from moderate to severe and can affect feeding, speech and development. It is such a big buzz word at the moment, which is why I wanted to get Val on to talk us through it!

Join us on this special episode to learn all about different tongue ties, how they can affect your baby and how you can address it.
