“Claire is absolutely incredible and I would recommend her with no hesitations. My pregnancy was not straightforward, and we had to make some difficult decisions along the way - and Claire always made me feel reassured that I was in capable and caring hands. She is always responsive and made herself available to see me as and when I needed, even if it was just a text message to reassure me when I had a quick question. I would recommend her hands down, and plan to be her patient again when we have more kids down the line!“
