Ollie has made significant progress! He’s had a handful of vomits since we reduced his feeds which in itself is so great! He hasn’t had his tube replaced in 2 weeks. And, all of a sudden he’s really interested in food! He’s reaching for food, having little tastes of puree without gagging, sucking on carrots, bones, banana chips etc. He is having little drinks of water too.  It’s a complete turnaround for him and really encouraging to see! Thanks so much for your input! I’m not exaggerating to say it’s been life-changing already! To cut out the vomiting is amazing!! (I don’t usually use so many exclamation marks either!).

Fiona has been our saving grace. We have been based with the hospital since Harry was born so moving from the public system to Fiona’s practice has been the best thing for Harry’s care.  It helps when she understands first-hand the struggles and frustrations we have had in the public system. We are now getting the personalised support he needs. Being able to call or email Fiona outside of our appointments and get a direct response has been amazing. The one-on-one support and guidance have been exactly what we were missing at the hospital. Thank you for your continued support Fiona.

Mother of a 3-year-old with a feeding tube

We consulted Dr Fiona Arrowsmith for my teenage son (13 years) to see if he was getting all the nutrition needed. We mainly had a vegetarian diet and wasn’t sure if this was enough for my growing son. We had an initial consultation with Fiona and found her to be an expert in this area. She gave us an excellent plan and what exactly needs to be in my son’s diet. Since then we’ve had great results. Thank you Fiona for your guidance and expertise.
