I want to highly recommend Abigail for those looking for well woman care. I came to Abigail for assistance transitioning into peri-menopause. I wanted an alternative to the medical model of viewing natural changes as a ‘disease’ to be dealt with through unnecessary and invasive testing to “diagnose a problem” that leads inevitably to hormone treatments. Abigail offered a wealth of knowledge and information on dietary changes, massage techniques, and natural remedies that could boost my body’s own abilities to move through these changes gracefully. Abigail is an amazing healer who listens deeply and warmly and gently provides options and choices. Her massages are an absolutely treat. She’s a real gift for those of us adjusting to our middle-aged bodies!
As soon as I told a good friend of mine about our plan for pregnancy, she immediately referred me to Abigail and reported that Abigail had helped to guide her in her own pregnancy and transition to motherhood. After having worked with Abigail from the months prior to pregnancy through the weeks leading up to labor and delivery, I now realize what my friend had meant. While motherhood has been one of the most beautiful and amazing experiences in my life, I did not love being pregnant. Abigail served as a wonderful support, a comforting guide and friend through the entire journey. She listened to my concerns, sat with me through some very challenging times and massaged away the recurrent backaches that only a pregnant woman can know. I feel very blessed to have had Abigail with me during my pregnancy and would highly recommend her to anyone embarking on this journey.
