Acupuncture for fertility health, pregnancy support, IVF support, gynaecological & stress

There are many reasons why couples have difficulty conceiving, but it may be possible to overcome these difficulties and achieve success. Acupuncture can help when used on its own or with a combination plan alongside ART.

  • Acupuncture helps to balance the nervous system, and increases blood flow to the uterus and ovaries.
  • Regulates the menstrual cycle.
  • Balances hormones
  • Helps women with PCOS, PMS, Endometriosis
  • Reduces stress by calming the CNS.
  • Preparing for Pregnancy

Specific treatment plans are made in preparation for pregnancy. I usually recommend 3 – 6 months weekly or twice monthly acupuncture.

During ART a 4 – 6 week acupuncture treatment plan is provided alongside the hormonal protocol.

Acupuncture is provided pre and post embro transfer. This is done on the day or within the 24 hour period before and after the day.
