IVF and ART support
Acupuncture to support IVF and ART
One of the main areas of my work is supporting people going through IVF and ART.
Going through IVF isn’t always easy and the journey up to this point may have been really challenging. Many of my clients have chosen me as I offer support, both mentally and physically.
I specialise in the field of fertility and women’s health and have undertaken extensive extra training and study to support, treat and advise couples through their IVF and ART journey Including male fertility. This enables me to advise you about the various techniques and options that are available for you to choose the most suitable treatment with a clinic that is the right fit for you.
In addition to acupuncture, I am part of a fertility specialists circle (nutritionists, herbalists, Chinese Traditional Medicine Herbalists, Blood testing analysts and microbiome testing etc.) all together we work on an all-encompassing treatment that is tailor-made for your needs.
I offer support and treatment that covers all aspects of IVF and ART treatment protocols:
- Preparation prior to the start of IVF & IUI and ART procedures
- Support for your body during a treatment cycle
- Help to support and balance your mental health and emotions
- Pre and post embryo transfer protocols
- Support during the two week wait period
- During the first 12 weeks of pregnancy
I usually recommend starting treatment as soon as you can prior to starting an IVF/ART cycle, ideally 3 to 6 months before.
This is because it gives me time to treat any underlaying issues and get you in the best possible place, physically and emotionally before starting your cycle. It takes this amount of time to positively impact both eggs and sperm quality.
This also ensures that all the aspects of fertility have been covered and treated, PRIOR to embarking on treatment, so you are in the best possible position to improve your chances of success.
All initial consultations are an hour and half. We spend time going through and examine all the areas of your health and medical history and lifestyle that could be impacting your fertility, so that I can improve your results. Because these areas can both positively and negatively effective your fertility.
I look at your:
- Menstrual cycle
- Vaginal Health
- Mental Health
- Diet and digestion
- Hormone balance
- Immune function health
- Anxiety and stress levels
- Male factor
Working with us is so much more than acupuncture. I spend time looking at all this information and any test results to identify areas that may need to be addressed. Because I understand things from a Western medical perspective as well as from a Chinese medical point of view, I am able use this information to develop a treatment plan individually tailored to your needs.
