Acupuncture for fertility and pregnancy support

While acupuncture for fertility and pregnancy may seem like something new, Chinese medicine practitioners have been helping couples in the East to conceive for many centuries.

The growth in the West of acupuncture as a viable and effective option to help maximise fertility and IVF outcomes has been sparked by clinical research, which is scientifically validating its efficacy.

This has led many IVF clinics in the United States and elsewhere to either refer actively to acupuncturists, or employ them on-site as valuable members of their healthcare teams.

How we support your fertility and pregnancy

Our acupuncture programs have helped many couples conceive and have assisted in enhancing outcomes.

We offer treatment for couples who are:

  • preparing to have a baby, or
  • experiencing difficulty conceiving.

Our acupuncture treatments for fertility aim to:

  • enhance ovarian function and egg quality
  • maximise sperm numbers and function
  • reduce stress and anxiety
  • promote weight loss if needed
  • improve sleep.

We also address polycystic ovarian syndrome, endometriosis and other gynaecological conditions that can compromise fertility.

When you have conceived, we continue acupuncture treatment for the first few weeks to allay any anxiety and help reduce the risk of miscarriage.

We also offer ongoing support for a range of pregnancy health issues including morning sickness, swelling/fluid retention, lower back pain, heartburn, insomnia, fatigue and much more.

At week 34, we use acupuncture to address any breech presentations and in the final four weeks of pregnancy, we can help prepare your body for labour and reduce the chance of medical intervention.
