I was losing hope of ever having my own baby. I was sad, upset, lost and angry at the world. After 2 years of unsuccessfully trying to conceive naturally and a year of having IUI and IVF I found Lucy. She understands the pain of infertility and really cares about her clients. She gave me new hope and the support I needed. After taking time out from IVF to work on me with Lucy’s guidance I got pregnant with my last frozen embryo. Lucy’s support continued throughout my difficult pregnancy which I will forever be grateful for. Lucy made my dream come true. I really couldn’t have done it without her.
“Today my husband felt our baby kick for the first time and It was everything I had dreamed of, this incredibly special moment that I honestly never thought would come actually happened to us! After our 2nd miscarriage, it all got too much for me and I decided now was the time to do a little more to help me. I hated being sad all the time, I was scared I had lost the happy smiling friendly girl I once was. I longed for her to return and I was fed up of feeling like I was falling apart, I needed to find me again. I remembered a friend had told me about a website that helped her called ‘Catching Rainbows’ a quick Google search made me see it was more than just a website, it was exactly what I was looking for. Straight away I wrote an email entitled ‘Struggling to conceive and feeling very lost’ I poured out my feelings and straight away I got a reply- this one email had led me to the wonderful Cath and the wonder of Catching Rainbows. From the first email exchanges I knew Cath was the right person- she just got it and got me. I get teary just thinking about those first emails we shared– they were truly special, we just clicked (excuse the pun). I thought it would feel odd talking to a stranger but it didn’t, it felt right. I love that she just listened and asked me the right questions, she was not intrusive and did not judge, Cath just heard me and heard what I needed. We went over everything and I got to really think about everything we had been through and really process all our decisions and go over those where I felt I needed to re visit things and re think. Through email and Skype, she used her super special powers to get me where I longed to be. I felt content, made a final decision and started to feel myself slowly coming back. I can whole heartedly say Cath helped to get me to the decision and the path we are on today. By talking it through and hearing her thoughts and suggestions on how I could proceed just made it all slot together. Cath and the Catching Rainbows dream has made me proud of me, I’m proud that I took the time to talk to someone and I truly believe it was meant to be that that person was Cath. When I needed that last little push, she deeply connected with me and guided me through the last hurdle, she helped me to jump over it and just go for it. It all felt so right. I owe so much to this incredible woman whom I have never even met. I can’t wait to meet up in a few months time and give her s huge hug and introduce her to our little miracle!! Thank you is not enough.” JEMMA
I still feel emotional now when I think of how much Catching Rainbows helped me. This was my last stop before IVF on my unexplained infertility journey, but I’d missed the cure all along – Catching Rainbows Magic! Once Lucy got to know me, she said she was confident that I would be pregnant within a few months as she had a good idea of what the issues were. I remember how much I disbelieved her, and then within 3 months I was pregnant! For the first time in my journey, someone had taken the time to know me, understand me, dedicate some time to me, and that was all I needed to push into the right place for Baby Eleanor to come into our lives. Lucy is amazing – she takes science and intuition to make a personalised plan. She also helped me plan the delivery I wanted, with just gas and air (and a team of midwives who couldn’t believe how calm I was!). Eleanor arrived on 18th December 2014, the best Christmas present I could ever have imagined.
They gave me support, reassurance and hope during a frustrating and sad time. After I finally conceived, I continued seeing them throughout my pregnancy for hypnobirthing coaching, reflexology and reiki. I thoroughly enjoyed every session and realised that sometimes, they were the highlight of my week. It is clear that they are extremely knowledgable about conception, pregnancy & childbirth, however it’s the genuine care and obvious passion that make them both very special indeed. I would (and do!) thoroughly recommend Cath and Lucy to anyone trying to conceive or already pregnant. They bring a little bit of magic to Dorset!
“I found Catching Rainbows at my lowest point, after 2 IVF’s and 2 miscarriages, and immediately found some comfort, security, and a bit of the most important thing I had begun to lose coming back: hope. I always found it such a safe place – every email I got from you, Cath was such a huge comfort, our chats were always so positive, warm and helpful (like speaking to an old friend!), the IVF prep kit and blog just seemed to speak to me, and the meditation tracks were incredibly relaxing at a time when I really, REALLY wanted to relax the most. You’ve been a huge part of the ‘journey’ to get to this point, Cath. I always thought stories like mine didn’t happen to normal people like me – “Waiting for IVF and then she got pregnant NATURALLY? Jammy bitch…” But it DOES happen. Catching Rainbows can help you through the tough times getting there, in the safest and most magical way, with lots of love and kindness. Cath: a massive, massive thank you from us both – please keep doing the important work you do, it really does make a difference! “xxx KATY
Hi Ladies, don’t know if you remember me, it was a while ago we had any contact. My name is Cathy and I had a stillborn and 4 miscarriages. We had some counselling over the phone and you helped me lots. Anyway wanted to send you a picture of my miracle boy Luke. He was born on March this year after my 4th miscarriage as I found the most amazing Dr who discovered I have a blood disorder which could be treated with blood thinners. After months of injections drugs hormones etc…. This is the result!!! He had fixed our broken hearts and ended the story happily. Just really wanted to tell you! Thanks for all your help when I really needed it.
…more happy words from our lovely ladies:
“We absolutely could not have had more amazing love, guidance, empathy and support every step of the way than with you. What a beautiful day. It makes it all just so worth it. Please believe in yourselves and in miracles and magic all you amazing couples. And trust in Catching Rainbows magic. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. ” A AND T xxxxxxxx
Having done the clomid, iui and ivf with nothing but negative result after negative result I was at rock bottom. Lucy helped me to believe in myself and was with me every step of the way. She kept me going and gave me the strength to keep fighting for my dream. With the help of medicine and Lucy’s amazing treatments I am now expecting twins. Lucy is like a rainbow. She brought the sun and I brought the rain, and with her help we made the colours appear. Thank you Lucy. X DORY
“Ladies I love your IVF kit. The best investment I could have made. It really helped having something to focus on, and my transfer was really good. I made it through by scouring your website and listening every day to the implantation track and I am so so happy to have just found out my HCG levels are 104. Yay! I swear something magical happened when I stumbled across your website. Never stop doing what you do. x x” SARAH

“I did it. I bloody did it! I read the blogs, I did everything you said to do on the personal plan and somehow or other I have woken up this morning to a positive pregnancy test! I never thought in a million years it would actually happen. Some of the things you intuited from my questionnaire were extraordinary and I never would have figured that out myself. You are really amazing. Thank you miracle worker! ” ANDREA
“I’m excited to share our very special news with you that I’m 12 weeks pregnant after a successful IVF cycle! Last time I was in contact was the day after our ET. I 100% believe that reading your blog, the pregnancy affirmations and your meditations contributed greatly to this outcome. Thank you both so much. With love x ” BENITA
“Cath has intuition, warmth and compassion beyond measure. My miscarriage is one of the hardest things I have ever been through but I honestly know that she made it 100% more gentle with her advice, tips, love and never ending empathy and support.

“I just wanted to say a massive thank you and let you know I am so grateful for your amazing website. I am nearly 35 and have been having fertility treatment for 18 months now, and have been trying for a baby for 3 and a half years in total. I am in a desperate state at the moment and am terrified approaching my 3rd ivf attempt. But thanks to you I have renewed hope and strength. You two really are amazing and just who I needed right now. ” EMMA
“Thank you thank you thank you!! Just getting your email made me smile (and cry a bit!) Every time we’ve spoken I have got off the phone and grinned/ giggled to myself. Then I have taken a nice deep breath, a sigh of relief and felt so happy. It gives me a bounce in my step and just helps me see things clearly. Cath, you are wonderful and I definitely feel that connection with you. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart. I hope one day I too can help people going through this life changing process. “JANE
“Dear Lucy & Cath, I just wanted to say ‘thank you’. I have one failed IVF cycle which was awful to go through but looking at your website at the information and blogs, they have really helped me feel a bit better about what is going to hopefully happen next time around. I have also purchased the IVF kit which I have started to listen to. I have just read your blog on how you came to start your work & the Catching Rainbows website. Thank you once again for your support .” ISABELLA

Having a safe, funny, lady in the trenches is priceless and your ‘notes’ (more like a talisman)’ stay on me constantly. Thank you so much Cath.” ELLA

Lucy has given me clarity to my situation. I’ve become more positive and objective to my ongoing fertility hiccups. I feel so much calmer and in control of my feelings since having hypnotherapy. SUZY
