I don’t know of any hospitals here in the Valley with an official gag order but I do know that nurses & IBCLCs can’t speak freely.
Reposted from @kellyibclc 🤬
As of last week the lactation consultants at another hospital in my area have a gag order put on them with regards to mentioning tongue tie and referring out for it. No discussion, wouldn’t let anyone else speak, just gagged them.
Yet another example of the health care system failing families. Instead of being able to make an informed decision, families will be left to wonder why breastfeeding isn't going well. Some will seek help elsewhere. Some won't.
I do not work at this hospital (or any hospital), but I am absolutely distraught over this.
They say it’s because we can’t “diagnose”. I’m sorry, but this is a cop out.
1) These IBCLCs (like most) have always been very careful of their wording around ties. Saying things like:
“Based on your symptoms, you may want to rule out a tongue tie. Here is a practitioner to see”
“When I do an oral assessment, I am feeling some restriction. You may want to see X practitioner to see if that is what is causing your symptoms.
2) If it is just about diagnosing, why aren’t we gagged from saying other words such as mastitis, or cleft palate, PCOS, or IGT.
Many IBCLCs have gone to many conferences discussing tethered oral tissues…learning about possible causes, the embryology, the best prep for release, what it should look like at every stage of healing, the after care, retraining the newly mobile tongue, supporting pieces of the puzzle, impact later, etc.
All of these pediatricians have been invited to conferences on this topic and non have attended. They choose to stick their heads in the sand and silence everyone else. At least have a discussion. Come to the table.
This is why families are turning to the internet for medical advice and I don’t blame them!
