Through regular acupuncture treatments, I work with couples and individuals to assist in preparing and aligning your body, mind and spirit so that you are in the best possible position to conceive and then to successfully carry a baby. I like to think of it as helping you to prepare a palace for a very special guest!
Together we will look at how multiple factors such as family history, diet and lifestyle as well as how your emotional and physical health fit into your overall fertility picture.
There are many reasons that you and/or your partner may be interested in receiving acupuncture for fertility.
You may be in your 20’s and suffering from painful or heavy bleeding during your cycle, or you may be in your 30’s and want to preserve your fertility. You may be starting to think about trying for a baby or you may be actively trying to conceive either naturally or with IVF. You could be recovering from a miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy. You may also be pregnant and need support on that journey, or have given birth and would like help replenishing and supporting yourself whilst breastfeeding or during the early years of you and your families life.
If you are interested in reading some of the current medical research on acupuncture and fertility here is a good summary of current studies.
