'I’ve been meaning to let you know that I've now done 4 sessions of the Rewind technique with clients, all as part of my NHS role. They'd all been referred to my clinic with birth anxiety due to a previous traumatic birth. I had met them all at least once before and offered the session to them and explained what it was, and I've followed them up by telephone afterwards. I've had some lovely feedback from the mums, which is fantastic - and I'm so relieved! I'm so excited about being a practitioner as I'm really going to be able to enhance the care and support I can offer to women and help them have a positive pregnancy and birth this time round, thank you Alex! I've got 3 more mums booked in for sessions later this month and will keep you posted how they go... '
