Dr Jill Tomlinson - Victoria, Australia

Dr Tomlinson, Consultant Plastic Surgeon, says "Ear molding is not well known in Australia and I did not hear about it during my plastic surgical training. Initially the parents who came to see me seeking ear molding had researched it online themselves and had infants aged 2-5 months, but after circulating information about ear molding to Maternal and Child Health Nurses, Paediatricians and Obstetricians in the last year I have begun to see more newborn infants which is easier for all involved in the molding process."
