I first saw Ali in July 2020 following a devastating diagnosis of premature ovarian failure in May 2020 at the age of 39. Having had my first child in 2019 it was a dream come true and I longed for a sibling for my daughter. With the diagnosis I was told that I had less than 1% chance of conceiving again and told by four different consultants to use donor eggs as an alternative. I had also suffered with depression/anxiety for years and found it very hard to relax. We did a round of IVF in August 2020 against the advice of the consultants as they didn’t think I would have any (or at least any good quality eggs). But to their surprise they managed to retrieve two eggs. (The IVF consultant had recommended trying acupuncture during the process). Unfortunately the eggs did not fertilise but we agreed to try another round of IVF however just as we were starting the process we found out that we were pregnant naturally! I continued to see Ali until I was 7 weeks pregnant. I now have a 6 month old precious baby boy to complete our family and he really is our little miracle. When I went to see Ali she was very caring and immediately made me feel at ease. With my history of anxiety and depression I found it very difficult to ever relax especially during IVF but this was one thing I was able to do during the sessions. I would have no hesitation in returning to Ali or recommending Ali to anyone. Thank you Ali for helping me on what I initially thought was a hopeless journey! X.
