The Team at KIDS are focused on making your experience as positive and caring as possible.

We want to ensure that you are getting the information, care and outcomes that give you and your child the best result that meets your needs.

We have especially created our Nurture Room to provide you with a relaxing and nurturing environment for you and your family. Having your own personal room to care for and feed your baby is paramount to giving to nurture.

* Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

You will be welcomed by our specially trained team whose focus is to make your visit as relaxed and caring as possible. Dr Hany will meet with you along with our Lactation Consultant to help guide you through the procedure and answer any questions you have.

This consultation will talk about Lip and Tongue Ties, the procedure and the expected outcomes. Our goal is to ensure that we meet you and your child's needs to give you the treatment that meets your expectations.

During the treatment, you will be supported by Dr Hany and our specially trained team*.

Your child will be swaddled to keep them safe while we hold them during the procedure. Everybody will wear special laser glasses (including your child) to minimise the effect of the laser on eyes.

During the procedure, your child will be secured while the precise laser cuts and cauterises the affected area. We will use a tongue depressor to help position the laser.

When the procedure is complete we will bring your child to you to start feeding to ensure the healing process and learning new movement that is now possible as the tie has been released.

We encourage you to take your time with feeding and with the assistance of our Lactation Consultant, you can do what is natural to you - the beauty of naturally feeding.

Requirements to bring along to the appointment:

• required paperwork

• change clothes and your personal requirements

• any additional feeding material or supplies

Even though you have left KIDS after the procedure*, we are always available for support and care. If you have any questions, need more information, have concerns or questions, you are welcome to call us anytime.

We will be able to answer your questions about any issue you are experiencing, to ensure you are happy.

We will also provide you with an aftercare Video which will show the stretches and exercises that we would like you to undertake with your baby to ensure optimal movement of the area that has been restricted.

We will follow up with a review six to eight weeks after your first visit. This is an opportunity for us to review the progress of your child and answer any questions you may have following the treatment. If there are any issues or follow up treatment is required, we can discuss this with you during this review.

Dr Hany and the team's focus is you and your family. We have created KIDS to deliver the best quality of care in a nurturing and natural way for a healthy life.
