I started seeing Keeley in my third trimester, after a last minute decision to refer myself for a HBAC. We were committed to making it happen. I decided to see Keeley once a month and then every week the last month (with the option for some labour inducing acupuncture if needed!).
Every session was invaluable in taking some time out to focus on self care, focus on where energies were low or unbalanced, and getting in the right mindset. I definitely felt lighter and more centred after every session.
Keeley is incredibly calm and nurturing, and we had some very enlightening conversations due to her previous experience as a doula, and working in the area we were to have our baby. I took away some golden nuggets completely additional to the acupuncture, which was a complete added bonus.
Labour started for me at night and the next day I took Keeley up on her offer of early labour acupuncture, which is something I value very much and credit for really helping me through the day! The session was focused on specific points for labour and my husband also got a brief crash course in acupressure points he could use the next few hours/days - and he actually did. I even fell asleep for a bit which was incredible given how much rest was needed at the time!
All in all, I would definitely recommend a course of antenatal treatments and especially the early labour session if you are someone prone to long labours like me! I will try to see Keeley a few times for postnatal sessions if babysitters can be found, but will repeat exactly the same course if I am fortunate to be pregnant again!
