If your goal is to become pregnant, my aim is to help you boost your fertility in order to conceive naturally or with the help of IVF treatments. Acupuncture creates the optimum environment for conception. It has been shown to play a vital role in the treatment of couples looking to become pregnant, with very high success rates.
Acupuncture can be used to help couples:
- Increase fertility for both men and women
- Maintain healthy happy pregnancies
- Prevent miscarriage
- Aid prenatal & postnatal complications
Who Should Attend Acupuncture?
All couples trying to conceive or who have not conceived after a certain period of time will benefit from acupuncture.
In women it has many uses, most importantly, to improve the functions of the ovaries, uterus and endocrine system and increase a smooth flow of blood to same.
In men it is used to promote sperm count motility and hormone balance.
Acupuncture Enhancing Fertility
In order to become pregnant, exercise, diet and stress free living all help. Not always as easy as it may sound. We have many systems working in our body such as the vascular, nervous, endocrine and a most important energy system. A blockage in or the stagnation of this energy will lead to disharmony and poor organ functioning. The causes for this stagnation can be biological, physical and/or emotional. Stress, anger, depression, sadness, worry and the effects of fatigue and overwork are just a few of the emotional affects impacting upon our energy system.
Chinese Medicine discovered over 4000 years ago that by inserting very fine needles in special points along specific energy pathways (called meridians) in the body it is possible to release any blockage or stagnation in this vital energy system and restore health throughout the entire body. It also creates the optimum environment for conception.
I have found, from treating dozens of my clients over the years that Acupuncture is very successful. I use it to help couples conceive and maintain a healthy, happy pregnancy and /or to prevent miscarriage. Acupuncture also helps with prenatal and postnatal complications.
Acupuncture Complementing IVF Treatments
I also use it with great success as a complementary treatment for those couples attending fertility clinics for IUI (intra uterine insemination), or IVF (in vitro fertilisation) or other forms of aided conception. It is effective in improving the function of the ovaries, uterus and endocrine systems involved with fertility in women and for sperm count and motility in men.

A Personal Note
“I am a registered general nurse and midwife. I am also a licensed acupuncturist and practitioner of Chinese medicine. As a result of this combination I treat a lot of couples who wish to become pregnant.
I love my work and, being a mum myself, seeing the delight and happiness when a couple successfully conceive and give birth to their treasured baby is priceless. The joy and happiness a couple experience after successfully conceiving and giving birth to their new baby is indescribable”.
