Acupuncture can help to assist nature to do what nature does best; make babies. Whether you are looking for help maximising the results of your western medical procedures, like IVF or ICSI, or you want to conceive a child naturally, acupuncture provides very positive results. Classical acupuncture is different to other form in that there are no formulas or set protocols, instead each treatment is tailored to your particular needs. By facilitating balance and harmony in your body, it promotes the right environment to create new life. 

Fertility

Acupuncture is extremely helpful to manage common complaints in pregnancy, such as morning sickness, vomiting, heartburn, insomnia, anxiety, fatigue, mood swings, constipation, etc.​ Regular treatments during the pregnancy increases the general well-being of the future mother. Moreover, weekly treatments given for the 3 consecutive weeks before full-term tend to reduce the average length of time in labour and increase the chances of women experiencing a natural efficient labour (Source: Journal of Chinese Medicine, Oct 2004).

Pregnancy

Acupuncture for Breech Presentation. Acupuncture treatment is ideally administered at 34-36 weeks gestation. The patient receive their first treatment in the clinic and are generally being the option to continue treatment at home with a moxa roll. Moxa is a herb which is compacted into a cigar shaped stick and burnt by the side of an acupuncture point. When applied to a certain acupuncture point, it promotes the flow of energy to the uterus and encourages the baby to turn. 

Acupuncture for Induction. Acupuncture treatments can be administered once the woman reaches 40 weeks gestation to encourage the labour to start. Points used are ones that are known to stimulate the uterus, stimulate contractions and encourage the cervix to dilate. One treatment might be enough, though treatments do tend to have an accumulative effect (i.e. the more treatments you have, the more effective they are).
