“I really must express our gratitude for all that you have done for us over the last year. When my husband and I visited you last July for the first time we had been trying for a child for over 2 years. Our test results had offered no explanation as to why we had not managed to conceive. I would have lived happily with the certainty that we were going to have to wait a couple more years before having a child. But I found the uncertainty as to whether we would ever have children more difficult. Well meaning friends began to offer advice. I was to give up my job, take a career break, trial a super healthy diet for a month and give up alcohol. All of a sudden I felt it was out of control. It felt as if my life was under the microscope, subject to discussion and that I was somehow to blame for our problem. But I was reluctant to adopt any of the recommendations since they had no medical source. Coming to you not only gave me hope that we would conceive, it also gave me control back. My life was my own again, managed carefully with your recommended diet, support for my continuing employment, medicine and acupuncture. I found the consultations with you very comforting and supportive. Both Sing Sing and Alice made me feel very comfortable. There was a sense of normality about the entire process. I was overjoyed to discover I was pregnant in early February. Seeing what was a viable foetus at the 6 week scan was possibly the most wonderful moment. I am now 19 weeks pregnant and feeling much more confident about being pregnant and about the 21 week scan.”
