Courses offered to GPs
I can offer talks about my findings from my MSc in medical anthropology about infant tongue-tie which I am extending to a PhD. I spoke to 21 healthcare professionals involved in neonatal care and lactation about the divisive issue of tongue-tie. I ask how and why the condition has become so popular in recent years.
