Many women are choosing acupuncture to help them become fitter, healthier, and achieve a higher level of wellbeing in preparation for having a baby.
Whether you have been diagnosed with “unexplained infertility”, or are simply trying to maximise your chances of becoming pregnant and having a healthy, successful pregnancy, acupuncture can provide much needed support and assistance. If you are starting IVF, or considering it, acupuncture can also help support both the body and the mind through what can be an emotional roller coaster.
There is an increasing body of scientific research that indicates that acupuncture can help regulate hormones, increase blood flow to the reproductive organs, and support emotional balance when you are experiencing increased stress and worry. There is a lot of sound scientific evidence that supports the benefits of acupuncture in fertility (see research articles).
Your acupuncturist will take a full medical history in order to fully understand your history and a range of different options for supportive treatment will be discussed. A number of package options are available and some of the following may be suggested and discussed with you at your initial consultation.
More health plans and prices are available on request. For further information and a chance to speak with the practitioner please call Claire on 07896 038094 or email.
