Firstly I want to say that Sarah was such a great support for me before and during my pregnancy. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone! I have a history of 3 miscarriages and have PCOS. I have a little boy and had Acupuncture to support me with him. I had tried the Zhai clinic but with no success and I had become a bit obsessed with getting pregnant. I came to see Sarah in 2010. I wanted to get body fit for a baby after my labour as it was long. It had taken a few years to get pregnant with my son so I was expecting a long journey! We sat and talked through my history and Sarah started to treat me. I was so relaxed I fell asleep! This was quite a regular thing! Sarah helped me on a diet to help build me up. I was pregnant within a few months. We were delighted although a little shocked as my son was not a year. I saw Sarah up to 14 weeks then sailed through my pregnancy. I delivered Gracie in what felt about 10 minutes. We arrived at 4.50 am and she was out at 5.10. She is perfect and weighed almost 9 pounds. If we do decide to have another baby I will go to Sarah again.

When I have some time I will go for a treatment from Sarah to get my overall health better. I think when you have challenges getting pregnant you need a support who makes you feel special but you can trust and who knows their stuff. For me that was Sarah.

I started seeing Sarah around a year and a half ago to work alongside my IVF treatment. I had never had any acupuncture before and have a phobia of needles so was quite apprehensive but I found Sarah to be really lovely and approachable! I'm pleased to say that I'm finally pregnant and have just had my 12wk scan! I couldn't be happier!! IVF was the most difficult and emotional thing I have ever had to go through but I would always feel so relaxed during and after my sessions with Sarah and I believe they had a huge influence in my success with the fertility treatment. I would sincerely recommend to anyone about the embark on IVF to book up an appointment with Sarah and I'm sure you will never look back!"

My experience with Sarah and Hong Tao Clinic was a very positive one. Having tried for seven months to conceive without success and determined not to go down the medical route, I found Sarah through an internet search for alternative fertility therapy. This was my first experience of acupuncture and after two treatments with Sarah I fell pregnant. Unfortunately the pregnancy wasn't viable and I miscarried, but I continued to work with Sarah and I am very pleased to say that 18 months after my first treatment, my husband are very proud parents of a beautiful and healthy four week old baby girl. Sarah is extremely professional and experienced with a very calm and friendly nature. For anyone taking some time to fall pregnant, I would highly recommend contacting Sarah sooner rather than later.

I first visited Sarah about a year ago, after unsuccessfully trying to conceive for 18months. I wanted to try and regulate my cycles in order to take more control of my fertility, at this point I was ovulating every 50 days. After seeing Sarah for only two weekly sessions, I had a positive pregnancy test result. I continued to see Sarah weekly throughout my first trimester (having suffered a previous miscarriage), and found the sessions relaxing and they also helped provide relief from my awful morning sickness. I revisited Sarah at the very end of my pregnancy, as I started to fear I may go overdue. Also believing in Sarah's capabilities I hoped the treatment, may not only induce labour, but, make it more efficient when it finally happened. After two sessions of acupuncture in my final week of pregnancy, my son was born one day after the second treatment. My labour was certainly efficient, lasting 6 hours from start to finish, meaning we had the water birthed we had hoped for and were in and out of hospital within the day.

It could be argued all these events may have occurred without Sarah's treatment, but I strongly feel she helped me massively along my journey to now having my beautiful boy. I found her manner professional and approachable, and looked forward to each session as a relaxing hour in the middle of a hectic week.

My husband and I had been trying to conceive for over a year with little success when a friend suggested trying acupuncture. I was fairly confident that I was ovulating normally and had a regular monthly cycle so didn't honestly think it would help but I didn't see that it would do any harm to give it a try. I started seeing Sarah in November and was immediately impressed with her manner, her professionalism and her knowledge. She talked to me about the importance of balancing my system and nourishing my body and blood properly. I was eating healthily and didn't drink or smoke but realised that I probably wasn't eating quite enough and in particular that I was eating a lot of cold foods when actually what my body needed was warmth. I started having a hot drink before every meal and choosing soups and jacket potatoes over salads and sushi at lunchtime. Sarah saw that my system was responding well to this and to the acupuncture and gave me a lot of confidence and encouragement in a very calm, collected way. She helped me to see that getting (and staying) pregnant was a very real possibility for us and not just a fantasy. The acupuncture itself is a much more pleasant experience than I had expected. It really gives you time to reflect and relax which is beneficial in itself I think and not something that I always find the time for in daily life. Two months after the first session I fell pregnant. I am now 17 weeks into the pregnancy and we are expecting our first baby in October. We really couldn't be happier and I am so very grateful to Sarah. My husband jokes that she gets more of the credit than he does! I would recommend acupuncture, and in particular Sarah Clark at the Hongtao Clinic, to anyone and I am sure I will continue with it throughout my pregnancy and beyond.

I first visited Sarah after she was recommended by a friend. I had been through a horrific situation where I had lost a baby in my 18th week of pregnancy. I visited Sarah a few months after. I had never tried Accupunture before but have to say my treatment not only nourished my body but also helped me manage the situation (as much as I could) mentally. I remember walking out after treatment and for the first time thinking I could get through this awful time. I coincidently fell pregnant again soon after which was totally unexpected, but seeing Sarah gave me more faith in this Pregnancy and the prospects of a happier outcome, which it has healthy little girl due tomorrow!!!

I found my experience with Sarah extremely therapeutic and more so honest. Sarah was extremely understanding and listened so much less clinical than hospitals and doctors surgeries. I would highly recommend seeing Sarah and would definitely go back in the future. Thank you!!!

I saw Sarah as I was having difficulty conceiving. My periods had become irregular and after a year of trying to conceive I decided to try acupuncture. Sarah identified areas which she could treat and issues that she could help with. I had weekly sessions and within a short period of time my cycles became regular and shortly after I fell pregnant. Sarah then supported me through my pregnancy until I was about halfway through. I went on to have a healthy baby and am very grateful to Sarah for her help.

- M.B.

I originally came to see Sarah as I was having problems conceiving and had been told by many that Acupuncture can be hugely beneficial, especially when used alongside IVF treatment. I was a little sceptical at first and not entirely convinced I liked the idea of the needles.

Sarah was very professional and listened to all my concerns. She was very supportive and gave me good advice, that encompassed my emotional well being, as well as my health issues. I felt the benefits from very early sessions and it really helped to rebalance my emotions when I was going through the IVF treatment.

I am now nearly 8 months pregnant and have had a very healthy pregnancy. Thank you for all your support. I would definitely recommend Sarah if you are going through IVF, her treatment was great comfort to me.
