Dawn's Story

Trying To Conceive

One client's story of her fertility journey

Dawn had been trying to conceive for over a year before trying holistic approaches

"My husband and I had been trying for a baby for over a year and I was feeling really down about it. I was really struggling with the fact that it wasn’t happening for us when it seemed to happen easily for other friends and family and I was deeply worried it would never happen. My sessions with Andrea were a complete game changer for my state of mind. Andrea gave me a nurturing space where I could connect with how I was feeling and not have to put on a brave face. It was also a space where I could truly let go, relax and enjoy the treatments.

 

Before the sessions I always had painful periods and ovulation pain; after a few months I had no pain with either whatsoever. The biggest shift for me was not the physical, it was definitely an emotional shift that benefitted me the most. I felt so much more balanced and positive after a few months and amazingly after around 6 months of treatment I fell pregnant! I largely put this down to the fact I was so much less stressed as a result of Andrea’s amazing treatments and coaching. This mindset shift has also really helped me enjoy a relaxed pregnancy and I really believe it has been a life changing thing that will stay with me.'

Dawn* attended my Fertility Support Plan 1A, a dedicated 6 month plan of weekly sessions, to support natural cycle conception.  She had been recommended by her GP to be placed on an IVF waiting list and wanted to avoid this process if she could. She had previously tried various approaches, including acupuncture, without success. She felt that acupuncture was too invasive, finding it stressful and a little clinical in its approach for her personally. 

 

Dawn kept me updated regularly - she was looking to continue her sessions with my Birth Preparation Plan and Due Date Reflexology should her little one be a little too comfy to make an appearance on the due date.

"I’m going on maternity leave in 2 weeks! I’ve been feeling very relaxed...I think because I dealt with a lot of my anxiety beforehand with you I’ve been able to listen to my body and just have a sense that everything is ok. I wanted to thank you again for all of your help, the sessions with you really changed my life and have given me wisdom that I know will stay with me. It’s hard to put into words how grateful I am to you and how much you helped me!"

Dawn gave birth to a healthy baby boy.

"I wanted to let you know that our little boy arrived safely a day before his due date! We’re absolutely over the moon and you were right about him being really strong - the midwives were all commenting in the hospital how strong he is!  Thank you so much for helping me on my journey to motherhood. I’m really loving being his mum and will never take for granted how much of a wee miracle he is!"
