"After my c-section, my daughter and I spent 4 days in the hospital. The third night, the nurses wanted me to get a good night’s sleep, so they kept Hannah in the nursery all night. Unbeknownst to me until morning, Hannah cried throughout the night, until the nurses finally brought her to me at 7:00 am. She stopped crying when I held her. In addition, against the written agreement that I got the doctor to sign, Hannah was given antibiotic eye drops the moment she was born. Mainstream healthcare providers don't understand the trauma that both these events have on a newborn baby. During Hannah’s first sixteen weeks she seemed irritable, fussy, and low energy. I brought Hannah to see Andy when she was sixteen weeks old. Exactly what he did is a bit of a mystery (miracle). I saw Andy look at Hannah intently for about 20 minutes while I held her. When he started, Hannah was calm. Then she began to wail, crying with an intensity that I had never seen before. After about 20 minutes she stopped crying, smiled, and seemed totally energized and joyful. After that first session, my husband and I noticed a new joy in her. We got a second appointment two weeks later, which was similar to the first. Since then, Hannah has been such a pleasure. Her personality changed completely, and I feel much more closely bonded with her. I cannot thank Andy enough for helping my daughter."
