Not only did her treatment make me feel calmer and help me sleep when I needed to, her experience with IVF cycles and
her pragmatic advice really helped throughout the process.

Are you struggling to conceive? Have you experienced PCOS, endometriosis, recurrent miscarriage, failed IVF, Ovarian
Hyperstimulation Syndrome? I have many years' experience working with women in all stages of their fertility journey, whether
trying to conceive naturally or alongside IVF or other assisted reproductive technology (ART).
If trying to conceive naturally, I’ll ask you to start using a basal body temperature (BBT) chart in order to track your cycle. When treating a painful condition, it’s very easy to see improvement, but with fertility there is only one measure of success. Using a BBT chart allows both of us to monitor changes in your cycle during the treatment process. It will also allow me to see you for your acupuncture treatments at the optimal times of your cycle. I may also recommend dietary and lifestyle changes.
If you’re seeking acupuncture support during fertility treatment, I will tailor my treatments to your needs and support you through the process, whether using IVF, ICSI, IUI or FET. In 2018, a review of all research into acupuncture and IVF found acupuncture to have a significant treatment effect in improving the birth rates of women undergoing IVF or ICSI.

Beyond fertility issues, I support women in all aspects of their health, from periods to pregnancy, and through to menopause. I support women through all stages of pregnancy, from nausea and tiredness in the first trimester, to birth preparation in the third.
