"I had my second baby, thanks to acupuncture," reveals mum of two Pamela Flood

Former Miss Ireland says she was so stressed over wanting a second baby, she struggled to conceive.
Pamela Flood has attributed acupuncture to having her second baby.
The television presenter and columnist writes about her experience in today’s issue of Mothers & Babies with the Irish Independent.
“I’m not someone who gets very stressed out about things but I wanted to have another baby so badly that my anxiety was at an all-time high about it,” she writes.
“Harrison happened so easily for us but Elsie was another story. After she was recommended to me by two unconnected people, I decided to go along to see acupuncturist Nin Thew, who has a particular interest in and gift for all things baby related.”
Acupuncturist Thew has two practices – one in Stradbally, County Laois and another in Monpellier beside the Phoenix Park.
“I started with Nin, going once every few weeks, back in September of 2012. Elsie was conceived only four months later and I continued to see Nin throughout my pregnancy.”
Flood says her pregnancy went pretty smoothly, and again attributes that to Thew: “I would walk into her practice feeling uptight and walk out as chilled as be damned.
“It’s one thing to take all your supplements and watch your diet when baby’s on board but sometimes it takes a little extra care to keep things on an even keel. I honestly found the acupuncture invaluable for this. Each to their own, but I couldn’t recommend it more. You just have to see Nin' ‘baby wall of fame’ to see the results she has had over the years. “
