Testimonial from client with her first pregnancy.
I started my treatment with Barbara when I was suffering from endometriosis; I was experiencing pain from scar tissue and was concerned that it might affect my fertility. Once I fell pregnant I upped the frequency of my visits to at least monthly when Barbara gave me tailored treatments depending on the stage of pregnancy, treating my headaches in the first trimester (which immediately relieved) to rib pain towards the end of my pregnancy, all of which meant my pregnancy was much more comfortable and enjoyable. But on top of this Barbara worked on keeping my pelvis aligned and aiding my baby into getting into the correct position for labour. Throughout the pregnancy Barbara also helped relieve my stress and keep me in tune with my baby. I really enjoyed my pregnancy and had a very straight forward labour and planned home delivery, I put a lot of this down to Barbara. On the whole I had excellent results and would highly recommend Barbara to anyone expecting a baby.
