Rebecca's story

Rebecca’s Story

I fell pregnant on trying, but our joy soon turned to extreme sadness with my first miscarriage. I decided to try acupuncture to help with my fertility and found the Emma Cannon Clinic. From the first moment that I met Emma my instincts told me that I was in safe hands with her.

During our acupuncture sessions, I would listen to Emma’s wise words and calming manner. She advised me not to panic or become scared, and instilled in me the strength to keep believing and hoping. I went on to fall pregnant two more times, but again sadly miscarried.

After this I tried 3 cycles of IVF, again without success. At this point, with the help of Emma’s advice, my husband and I decided we would try to naturally conceive again, and miraculously I fell pregnant a fourth time. On reaching the 20 week milestone in my pregnancy, I finally allowed the ‘celebration’ of this milestone – Emma even did a celebration dance around her clinic room, it was a great moment for us all!

Emma taught me that it’s okay to believe, to dream, to visualise, and I believe that the key for me during this time was not only the acupuncture treatments but also the focus on being fertile. My husband and I have proudly received our wonderful gift of a baby girl – against all the odds and incredible circumstances. We are thankful, we are blessed, we are grateful – we believe in miracles. Thank you Emma and your team for all your support and love.

Sam's story

Sam’s Story

Following 1 ectopic pregnancy, 2 IVF miscarriages and a further 2 failed IVF attempts, Sam hit rock bottom. Her IVF doctor suggested she try acupuncture, referring her to me. Sam shares the rest of the story in her own words…

I sat with Emma, proudly listing how I was preparing my body for IVF. I remember so vividly saying (whilst thinking ‘this will impress her’) how I was on a strict sugar free, clean and lean diet and… “clean and mean is what I call it, darling,” she smiled. She took my hand and explained the difference between nurture and restriction. Within minutes she had found the problem; I wasn’t looking after myself, I was punishing myself. I had eradicated nearly all pleasure from my life as a way to gain some element of control in a situation that was actually very much outside my control.

Only in that room with Emma did I realize; I was broken and had no belief in myself, my body or in IVF. I had given up and was merely going through the motions. It was incredibly painful to face but deep down I knew I would be ok, with Emma’s help. She knows how hard this is for you and has a unique way of uncovering the problem and empowering you.

Within a couple of sessions with Emma I felt better than I had in years. By relinquishing control I finally felt in control. I was looking after myself, I was calm and it was the first time I had felt connected to my body since my ectopic pregnancy. My 5th round of IVF was by far the easiest, the acupuncture eradicated a lot of the symptoms (especially the mood swings and bloating) and once my darling boys were put back inside of me as 2 miniscule embryos, Emma taught me how to welcome them, to love them, to visualize my body both accepting them and helping them to grow.

3 days after my transfer and Emma knew I was pregnant. “It’s looking good darling.”

Emma nurtured me throughout the first 3 months of my pregnancy and beyond. She looked after me and taught me how to look after myself. I felt like her only patient.

Our 5th round of IVF was the only one supported with acupuncture and I was lucky enough to have this with Emma whose unique approach to women and fertility changed the way I looked after myself. She helped to make my dream come true – Woody and Oliver.

Eleanor's story

Eleanor’s Story

Eleanor and her husband Derek had fallen pregnant with their first son Isaac after trying for three years. On the brink of starting IVF, it was a surprise natural conception after such a long time trying. The couple knew they didn’t want a big age gap so, after another three years of trying for a second child, they sought help from Emma…

"I was desperate to not have a huge gap between the children. Emma was a hugely calming influence who made me believe it wasn’t a question of IF I would conceive again but WHEN.

We decided we would try IVF and this is where I feel Emma’s expertise excelled. She helped me decide what kind of clinic to choose, and ‘held my hand’ through the whole process, fitting me in for sessions as and when required in order to best support the process.

After our second round of IVF I was able to send Emma a text. I think it read ‘you’ll never guess what…’ Of course she knew before I did, but telling her the news was the best feeling. Rex was born March 2017. Our family was complete!

Emma has continued to play a part in our lives. I will always be very grateful, not only for her help with conceiving, but also for the chats we had and her kind, holistic approach. Who knows if it was the acupuncture was which made it all work out? But I do know that the sessions were incredibly relaxing and therapeutic which can only help."

Nina's story

Nina’s Story

Nina was 41 years old and had experienced one miscarriage when she came to see Emma, hoping to conceive.

"My decision to book a consultation with Emma was a profound acknowledgment of my deep wish to have a child, despite being single. Too many days and nights had been spent feeling sorry for myself that I had missed the boat – it was time to take action. I had already tried to conceive for six months with no success when I met Emma. It was a significant turning point for me.

I will always remember our first meeting. The environment of her practice was so cosy and homely, I felt I was visiting an old friend for tea rather than receiving treatment in a clinic. Emma empowered me with the knowledge that it was within me to manifest all that I needed to become a parent, including optimum health, emotional courage, balanced hormones and a sense of humour!

She instilled in me a confidence that things would work out. I received several sessions of acupuncture with Emma, and did my best to follow her advice as I proceeded with my attempts to conceive via a donor. However there was another more magical element to it all. Each time I went to receive a treatment I felt my confidence soar. Emma believed in my body’s ability to carry a child, she encouraged me to keep going when things seemed bleak and became my cheerleader to conception.

Six months after my first visit, I was blessed with pleasure of contacting her to let her know I was pregnant! She was so kind to me and had my back from the start, she was one of the very first people I shared my newly discovered joy with and I will always be grateful to her for her healing abilities, and empowering voice. My son Mika was born on the 21st October 2014. He is the greatest blessing of my life and every day I am filled with a sense of wonder and gratitude."

Nina's story

Tracie’s Story

"On the day I turned 40 I remember waking up with a terrible sinking feeling. It was not the fact I was 40, it was the fact I was childless and 40.

I had finally found the partner I wanted to spend my life with, he was six years younger than me. I felt the pressure accelerate to fall pregnant.

We had actually started trying when I was 38 and those two years had flown by. We just kept thinking it would happen. We went away for a month in Thailand to relax and we decided if things had not happened naturally then we would get some advice about IVF.

While we were away I had read a book called ‘The Baby Making Bible’ by Emma Cannon. It appeared in my life rather magically, literally landing in my lap (too long a story to share here!)

We came back in the February, still with the dreaded negative pregnancy test, and by Easter we were having our first round of IVF. Not quite the Easter egg collection I was dreaming of. As I read more and more about my elevated FSH hormone levels I started to feel like it would never happen for us and I was too old. We did get pregnant on that round but miscarried. After this we decided not to rush back into it, and no more googling. I booked my first appointment with Emma.

Emma welcomed me with the most incredible warmth and was more knowledgeable about fertility than anyone I had ever spoken to before. I cried a lot, she didn’t mind. After my amazing first session of acupuncture and armed with packets of ‘nourish blood’ teas and soups, I felt I had a much better understanding of how to make my womb a fertile ground for a baby.

We conceived again, naturally this time, but then miscarried for a second time. Had I not been seeing Emma at this time we would have probably have ploughed straight into another intense round of IVF. Instead I carried on seeing Emma and I have no doubt that the sessions were helpful, especially to my mental health. I started to blossom again, I was calm and I found a sense of well-being and peace. In fact, I felt an abundance of positive energy and health… and then I conceived naturally. Emma supported me throughout the pregnancy and our baby boy Henry was born on Fireworks Night 2015, a healthy 10lb rocket of magic."
