Where has everyone gone?

In the first trimester of your pregnancy it can sometimes feel like there is nobody there to support you. Many of you understandably don’t want to tell even close friends and family, and much of the NHS’s support doesn’t start in earnest until towards the end of trimester 1.

We’re here to explain what is happening in your body, and to help safeguard you against miscarriage and help you overcome morning sickness, heartburn, UTIs, tiredness and many of the other big and small annoyances of early pregnancy. This includes particular support for women who have become pregnant through IVF or other assisted fertility treatments and are understandably more anxious during the early weeks following the confirmation of their pregnancy.

How you might feel

Many women don’t feel distinctly pregnant during the first 8 weeks. It is quite common, though, to feel very tired, to need to urinate more often, to be nauseous or to be sick, to have too much saliva in your mouth, to be constipated, or have indigestion, wind, bloating or heartburn. Your feelings to food may also change – for example, cravings for things you never previously liked or aversion for food that had been favourites. Elsewhere in your body, you may feel your breasts becoming fuller, occasional dizziness or headaches, and a range of emotions that may include some negative feelings such as fear or loneliness.

“Dear Stefan - We can’t thank you enough for the unwavering care and commitment you’ve given us in helping us to become a family. We are very happy!”

Stephanie Alexander-Jinks, London

"After just a few weeks I have never felt healthier or happier. I wish I had come to you years ago but am glad I have now! Thank you Stefan

Kate, London

“I went to see Stefan after a year of trying to get pregnant.  Not only did I feel much more “balanced” having seen him, I had a little girl a year afterwards.  I absolutely believe in what he does – he is a true holistic practitioner, looking at all aspects of the body and treating through various methods.  I cannot recommend him highly enough - go and see him!”

Naava Carman, Owner, The Fertility Support Company

“I have known Stefan for many years; first as a teacher, then as a friend and colleague. He has always been unfailing generous with his knowledge, a superb practitioner, and someone who is always learning and growing in skill. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone who wants to revolutionise their health.”
