“Hi Michelle, it all happened lovely and quick: My waters broke 2 hours after your last treatment and contractions started a few hours later. I went from 3cm to 7cm in about 10 minutes and only used gas and air – it was an amazing experience. Thank you so much for your all your help and the treatments – it made a massive difference to my labour and birth and my total outlook on it all. Mom and baby are doing great, happy and healthy!” ESG, Teddington: Acupuncture treatments to stimulate spontaneous labour/avoid medical induction of labour – March 2018.
“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 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 (first one in months) and felt full of energy the next morning. The rest of the day I started feeling very constipated ( well, that’s what I thought) 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, which was absolutely amazing!! Most women I know would think this is the worst scenario for their first baby but we were both so calm when it all happened; I cannot believe how anxious I was before and so fearful of birth and the induction, thank you for the treatment and talking to me, you really helped me to relax – I believe this is why I had such an amazing experience – a natural birth without drugs – which I so very much wanted!! Thank you from all three of us! ” GL, Whitton: Reflexology treatment for overdue pregnancy – 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 baby girl was born later that evening – thank you for your Acupuncture skills Michelle – you are wonderful”. Louisa, Teddington: Acupuncture for overdue pregnancy – 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 to you. I had a normal birth – Thank you!” SG, Hounslow: Acupuncture treatment for overdue pregnancy – August 2017.
“Dear Michelle, just to let you know your Acupuncture skills has a 100% success rate – our gorgeous boy was born this morning, only 20 hours after your treatment. Thank you!” Marjorie, Twickenham. Acupuncture treatment for overdue pregnancy – April 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 recover from my traumatic birth experience, but meeting you after, and through your support and advice you gave me 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 recovery after a traumatic birth experience, 2017.
