Pregnant woman holding bellyWelcome to Natural Fertility, a natural alternative for those wishing to become parents. Acupuncturist Louise Jeffrey has a special interest in Fertility and Pregnancy, and uses Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine to assist with conception (either with or without IVF), throughout pregnancy, and in preparing for birth or dealing with pregnancy-related issues.

If you find yourself challenged with fertility issues, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been proven to improve your chances of conceiving. In TCM, sub-fertility is seen as an energetic imbalance within the body which needs to be addressed. Acupuncture is used to return the body back to its natural balanced state, offering it the best possible opportunity to conceive and to produce healthy children.

Acupuncture is now commonly used to improve the chances of conception during IVF, and recent studies have shown an increase in pregnancy success rates where IVF recipients have received acupuncture during treatment. Treatment is focused on improving ovarian function, strengthening the immune system, reducing stress, regulating hormones, relaxing the uterus, maintaining implantation, nourishing embryo growth and preventing uterine contractions, and improving semen quality and quantity in men.

Acupuncture is safe and effective throughout pregnancy in treating issues such as nausea, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, anxiety, fatigue, acid reflux, oedema, and much more. It is also used to turn breech babies, and pre-birth acupuncture treatment increases the chance of achieving a natural birth with little intervention, and reducing average labour time. Find out more
