FROSTTIE – Norfolk and Norwich recruit the first participants!

We are very happy to announce that the FROSTTIE trial has its first recruits!

Fantastic work by Luisa, Louise, and Ashish, the team carrying out the trial at Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, for recruiting the first four participants within a week… Very well done team.

FROSTTIE is a randomised controlled trial investigating whether a frenotomy with breastfeeding support, or breastfeeding support on its own, helps mothers and their babies to breastfeed.
