Women's Health & Fertility
Healthy bodies make healthy babies, therefore the best time to start acupuncture treatment is before conception.
For natural conception I recommend starting acupuncture 3-6 months prior to trying to conceive.
The road to conceiving can be an exciting and stressful time. For some it can be a discouraging process. Acupuncture helps to reduce the effects of stress to effectively support a calm mind, a vibrant spirit and healthy body for pregnancy and birth. Acupuncture also helps you achieve optimum reproductive health by helping with menstrual irregularities, hormone imbalance, ovulation disorders, fertility support, miscarriage prevention and care throughout your pregnancy for things like morning sickness, nasal congestion, back pain, headaches, low energy, slow progression of labor and breech presentation.
Acupuncture can be used as a primary treatment modality to support fertility or it can be used in conjunction with assisted reproductive techniques (ART), such as IUI and IVF.
