Did you know that by the time you are pregnant the DNA and the quality of your embryo has already been determined?
This is set by your genetics, lifestyle and health prior to conception.
The healthier you are, the healthier your eggs are.
It takes approximately 120 days for an egg to develop to maturity.
This means you should start preconception care a minimum of 3 months prior.
We can optimise your ability to conceive naturally or work with your doctor to support your fertility treatment.
Through the use of acupuncture and herbal medicine we adapt treatments weekly to support the phases of your cycle.
We work with women and couples have not been successful in conceiving or who have received diagnosis' of:
Low egg reserve
Acupuncture may benefit conception by:
Balancing endocrine system and reproductive hormones, correcting hormonal imbalances that prevent conception.
Regulating the cycle and ovulation
Stress hormones negatively affect fertility hormones. Stress can prevent ovulation entirely and create spasms in both the fallopian tubes and the uterus, which can interfere with the implantation of a fertilised egg.
IVF can be a rollercoaster of a journey.
We are here to support you every step of the way. We work alongside your fertility specialist to ensure you receive integrative care.
