Fertility Acupuncture

Going through fertility issues can be a lonely journey and many people feel unable to share their troubles with even their closest friends and families.  The stigma attached to infertility is very damaging for many people and sadly it is an all too common issue with around 1 in 7 couples having difficulty conceiving. The good news is that about 84% of couples will conceive naturally within a year if they have regular unprotected sex (every 2 or 3 days). I use a combination of acupuncture, herbal supplementation, naturopathic techniques and self hypnosis to prepare the body for pregnancy. By rebalancing and optimising reproductive health we maximise the chances of a successful pregnancy.

“IVF with acupuncture increased the odds of pregnancy by 65% (according to early evidence on ultrasound), increased the odds of ongoing pregnancy by 87% (according to ultrasound evidence of pregnancy at 12 weeks) and increased the odds of a live birth by 91% compared with IVF on its own.”

Testimonial

"I went for acupuncture with Lindsay after two consecutive miscarriages last year. I was physically and emotionally devastated and exhausted, but Lindsay treated me with such unrelenting empathy and understanding. She is very genuine and knowledgeable and took my aim of a successful pregnancy very seriously and treated me systematically varying to suit my needs on the day.

I am very uncomfortable with needles and have very sensitive skin, but she was very compassionate and allowed me to take it at my own pace. After three months, she had a sixth sense I was pregnant before I even told her. 9 months later (with ongoing support from Lindsay) came a wonderfully healthy 9lb 4oz baby girl! I credit it all to Lindsays help, and I would recommend her to anyone and everyone!"
