The birthing process is the hardest journey a baby makes and as such everything else should be easy. Even the easiest birth can effect your special babies head bones and spine. And the best gift you can give is to have them checked - gentle yet effective.

Parents regularly report reduction of earaches, coughs, relaying improvement in many developmental areas, which have included behaviour improvement, with good sleep patterns.

What to expect
Prior to the first visit a full questionnaire will be used to assist in the best care for your precious baby
It is advised to bring a feed or drink with change of nappy where appropriate.
It is advisable to try and avoid a full feed immediately before first appointment, to enable some feed at that appointment. Sometimes this cannot be avoided, so feeding your baby as necessary is the first priority.
The Baby's first appointment, will address the pregnancy and the birth.
Full assessment & explanation will follow to assist you in the care of your baby.
A treatment plan will be discussed, and if agreed, a follow up to that appointment, where appropriate.

Deirdre has specialised in child health care since 1971. As a qualified children's nurse, she was part of the first UK based multi-disciplinary and multi-agency paediatric assessment day unit based at the City Hospital in Nottingham.
It is clear that some of the ideas and the general approach on which the Paediatric Assessment Unit (PAU) were based are reflected in the more recent Surestart projects and the work of Social Care Services in its child protection work. Her many years as a Health Visitor with an extensive caseload, equipped her for the pursuit of further preventative care for children, which acknowledged the importance of the maturing nervous system and the role of the protective bony framework of the skeleton.
Deirdre has been able to utilise this experience for the benefit of many children on whose behalf she has been consulted and those she treats as a Chiropractor. Travelling to visit and work with other chiropractors has enabled her to assimilate differing views, and techniques, pursuing excellence both in the clinical setting and beyond. She has developed the very busy thriving family practice in Stratford upon Avon, supporting the whole community and offering patients a choice. Her vision was to build up a family practice, caring for every member of the family, whatever age.
Speaking engagements, association and professional commitments ensure the longevity of the McTimoney Technique in the wider forum.
Deirdre has always offered her graduating college (McTimoney Chiropractic College now at Abingdon, Oxfordshire) her support especially by welcoming new graduates a place in her clinic, creating a strong platform for them, and equally a vibrant team for the patients. Deirdre has been awarded Fellowships of the College of Chiropractors and the McTimoney Chiropractic Association.
