A testimonial from a courageous Elizabeth Clinic patient…
I just wanted to say a big thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support in this pregnancy and the birth of our beautiful second daughter.
I saw a lot of clinicians before….and felt I wasn’t quite understood accurately until I came to your clinic and Julia suggested I had severe anxiety and OCD…..and I thought “yes that is me!”.
Funnily, enough, once learning about postnatal OCD (and being ok with it and using some CBT) the intrusive thoughts decreased dramatically and so did the worrying and anxiety.
As a result of your support (and phone calls whilst I was in hospital), Caroline’s consultation after the birth (super helpful!) and Anne’s very supportive phone call check ups, I can honestly say, I am really enjoying this newborn experience!
Whilst I didn’t hit crisis point until 5-6 months last time….I still had anxiety from the beginning. This is a much more enjoyable experience – thanks to all of you!
It has impacted positively on my relationship with my husband, my toddler, my family and honestly, every aspect of my life.
Thank you for changing my life……
