I trained at Wolverhampton University in 2016-2017 to be able to perform tongue assessments and frenulotomy (division of the lingual frenulum or tongue-tie) and introduced the first tongue-tie service with a local hospital Trust where I was the Infant Feeding Lead and Specialist Midwife. I have 32 years experience in feeding practice and I keep current/up to date by attending seminars/conferences and teaching sessions, this ensures I can give the most relevant evidenced based information to assist you on your feeding journey, however you decide to feed your little one.

I am a member of the Association of Tongue-Tie practitioners (ATP) and Lactation Consultants of Great Britain (LCGB) and I currently work for Private Midwives as a Tongue-Tie Practitioner, who provide indemnity insurance and ensure I am fully trained, practice safely and keep up to date by completing mandatory training.

You can check my qualifications and registration by looking on the NMC website at Registration - The Nursing and Midwifery Council (nmc.org.uk)  Pin Number: 80I3873E Jayne Cozens.

You can also find me listed on the above mentioned organisations (ATP & LCGB).

Please note:

  • It is not possible to diagnose tongue-tie by photographs, video or someone just looking in the mouth.  The lingual frenulum is normal anatomy, it is only if it is causing problems with feeding by being restrictive and therefore compromising normal tongue function that frenulotomy is considered. However, it is not always the frenulum causing the issue; it can be due to the birth process affecting the nerves that go to the tongue and causing issues with function. In this case, it could be treated conservatively with good feeding practices and craniosacral therapy.

  • I do not treat lip tie, again this is normal anatomy and there is no evidence to show that it interferes  with feeding. Please  see the statement on lip tie on the ATP website (link available on information tab and below)

  • I currently treat babies up to the age of 25 weeks. Babies who are just over that age may be able to be treated but it depends on the activity of your baby, whether there are teeth present and the general behaviour. However, if you are unsure, I am happy to advise, so please feel free to contact me.
