  • Increasing awareness about the effects of tongue-tie on babies especially with regard to both breast and bottle feeding.
  • Supporting parents of tongue-tied babies to access safe and effective care.
  • Assisting tongue-tie practitioners to provide safe and effective care through training and sharing knowledge and experience.
  • Providing resources and education for healthcare providers who refer babies for tongue-tie division.
