Acupuncture & Fertility

Fertility problems are on the increase and it is a subject that is dear to my heart. I understand how much it matters to you to have your own child and I feel passionate about helping.

If you are looking at this page then you have probably already been searching the internet to find ways to help yourself and I am sure you will have found many references to acupuncture. I’m very happy to talk with you about all your questions and concerns, either by phone or in a free fifteen minute chat. I do understand that everything about trying for a baby can become very sensitive & emotional and many of my patients find that acupuncture also gives them a place, outside their family & their concern for them, where they can talk & feel supported and understood. I care very much about what is happening for you, & will do everything I can to help you.

It takes two to make a baby and I am very happy to treat either, or both of you. I find that so often the woman pursues all the various health options whilst the man can often be or feel left out, and there is a paragraph about male fertility on this page . I am in practice with my husband, Nicholas and we often find that men feel more comfortable speaking to him about treatment. We are both happy to offer you a free fifteen minute ‘chat’ to give you chance to meet either or both of us, see the practice and ask any questions.

We are both genuinely committed to helping couples to conceive and have undertaken advanced study with the notable midwife and acupuncturist Zita West, as well as making this a focus of our continuing professional development. We are happy to say that we have a notice board at the practice showing the many babies born to our patients, some of whom you can see here on our websites.

Read testimonials from some of my patients.

Male Fertility:

Both male & female fertility problems are on the increase and yet medical treatment often focuses on the woman & it seems that, whether or not the man’s fertility is part of the problem, they are often left feeling outside of the whole process, simply being required to ‘produce the goods’ but being given little or no advice about how they can help, or what they can do to increase fertility.

Yet the truth is, whether there is a male fertility issue, or whether the problems are more to do with the woman, it is important to produce the best possible sperm to help conceive that longed for child. Nicholas and and I have developed our practice to help couples wherever there are fertility issues. I tend to treat the women but we find that this is an area of health where men feel more comfortable talking to another man, and Nicholas tends to treat & talk with the men and help them to achieve the best possible state of health so that they can play their part in conception. Our experience is that couples benefit enormously from them both undergoing treatment and some of the testimonials on this site bear witness to this.

Remember that we are both happy, separately or together, to offer you a free 15-minute meeting to give you an opportunity to visit our practice and meet us, and to ask any questions.

Pregnancy & Post Natal:

Once you are pregnant I am happy to carry on caring for you and helping you as your pregnancy develops. Acupuncture helps with the amazing tiredness of the early weeks, as well as the nausea.

Once your baby is born acupuncture can still continue to be of value to help and support you.
