“Figure out the rhythm of life and live in harmony with it.”
- Lao Tzu
I am a member of the Acupuncture Fertility Network (AFN). Membership involves completing a post graduate diploma which integrates western diagnosis and procedures for infertility with Chinese medicine and acupuncture.
There can be obstacles to conceiving such as ovulation and menstrual cycle irregularities or low sperm parameters. Some couples are aware of an underlying issue which will mean that assisted conception is the only avenue to having a child. In the UK, unexplained infertility accounts for around 25% of cases of infertility [i]. This is where no cause can be identified in either the woman or man. This can be a frustrating diagnosis, but an area where acupuncture may be able to help support you through adding the wisdom of the Chinese diagnosis, and enhancing your health through improved diet and lifestyle.
After many years of wanting to have a child, I am now the proud mother of two children. My journey was far from easy and I can whole-heartedly empathise with couples who are struggling to conceive. I am fortunate to be able to support you in your conception journey with Chinese Medicine.
