Helen's Story

Helen Gamesby-Iyayi of Ingleby Barwick successfully used aromatherapy during her pregnancy.

Helen, pictured here at 39 weeks, found out about the service when aromatherapist midwife Anna Reeve gave a talk at Teesside University where Helen works.

“I believe in relaxation techniques and I found it really interesting that you could use aromatherapy during pregnancy,” said Helen.

“I had problems with my right hip and it helped to relieve the pain which helped me to walk better.”
