Labour started with my waters breaking and contractions starting naturally after about 23 hours, after using the acupressure points you taught us –  I dilated to 5 cm, but then things changed  – the pain became much worse ( baby had flipped back to back) I had an epidural and then everything seem to stop and start, eventually I had a c-section.

“The support and care that my baby and I revived from Michelle was truly incredible. The time that she spent with our family was invaluable. Our appointments were never rushed and any concerns we had Michelle helped us through them. For both my husband and I, we have never felt so reassured by a health professional before, the genuine care we both felt from Michelle was unique. We feel extremely lucky that we meet Michelle and that we had her in those early weeks caring for our baby”. CM – Teddington: Hypnotherapy treatments for postnatal anxiety – December 2017.

“Celebrating my second daughters’ birthday just after Christmas made me remember: I met Michelle in my first pregnancy, and she has been my midwife for both my daughters’ births – which are both amazing memories thanks to Michelle! Her outstanding professional competence – it was incredible to watch her “working” – always very calm, focused, and so very kind at the same time. Her selfless personality and kindness makes her a very rare breed in this world – anyone who can have her support and experience her skills is a very lucky person!”. Hella – Twickenham: Reflexology treatments for overdue pregnancies, antenatal and postnatal support – December 2017.

“I just want to say thank you for the treatment session I had with you last week – I had the most incredible birth! After I saw you I had mild contractions on and off which eventually subsided. I had a great night’s sleep (the first one in months) and felt full of energy the next morning. The rest of the day I started feeling very “constipated”, but by early evening my partner realized I was actually in labour and about to give birth. We phoned the emergency services and they were amazing in guiding him what to do, and they arrived very shortly after I had an unplanned homebirth!! But it was absolutely amazing! Most women I know would think this is the worst scenario for the birth of their first child but we were both so calm when it all happened; I cannot believe how anxious I was before and so fearful of labour and birth and a possible induction.  Thank you for the treatment and talking to me, all the information and advise you shared really helped me to relax and I believe this is why I had such an amazing experience (a natural birth without drugs!), which I now realize I so very much wanted. Thank you from all three of us. ”   GL – Whitton: Reflexology for overdue pregnancy to avoid induction of labour – December 2017.

“After one treatment I started having contractions after  a few hours. I was seen at the hospital the next morning and it was confirmed I was in the early stages of labour .I felt the treatment had moved things along substantially and I would not be needing a second caesarian section after all. My beautiful daughter was born later that evening – thank you for your Acupuncture skills Michelle –  you are wonderful”.   Louisa – Teddington: Acupuncture for overdue pregnancy to avoid ELCS – November 2017.

” Hi Michelle; I just want to say thank you. I had the acupuncture treatment with you and continued to do the pressure points you taught me at home – labour started after about 24 hours and I did not need the induction after all. I really believe it was the treatment that changed it all, I could feel something had changed in my body, and I am so grateful. I had a lovely natural birth – Thank you”.  SG – Hounslow: Acupuncture treatment for overdue pregnancy to avoid induction of labour – November 2017.

” I just want to say thank you again. I was looking through my pregnancy photo’s and remembered how kind you were to me in the darkest of days. I don’t think I will ever fully recover from my traumatic birth experience, but meeting you after and the support and advice you gave me provided hope and light at the end of the tunnel, helping to turn some of those memories around. Our baby is the joy of our lives. Best regards and thank you so much again”.   Vicky – Twickenham: Breastfeeding support and Hypnotherapy for anxiety and recovery after a traumatic birth experience – 2017.
