The choice to undergo IVF is a big decision for all couples. Often it comes after an emotional journey trying to conceive naturally making it a nervous, yet potentially exciting time. At Nüwa Natural Health, our acupuncturists focus on supporting you and your partner through the IVF process using traditional eastern medicine alongside the care provided by your fertility doctor. Eastern and Western medicine are no longer at odds, with evidence suggesting that there is value in utilising acupuncture and other alternative therapies when undergoing IVF treatment (1).
At Nüwa Natural Health, lead practitioner Jessica has worked with hundreds of women undergoing IVF in her career and has extensive knowledge of the IVF protocols, medications and expectations. She will guide both you and your partner through your acupuncture IVF journey with compassion, kindness and knowledge.
During your first session Jessica will go through your medical and fertility history in detail and you will receive a treatment tailored to you followed by any herbal, nutritional and lifestyle recommendations that may increase your chances of IVF success.
Future acupuncture IVF sessions are delivered based on your individual IVF treatment plan with the recommendation these start 3 months prior to your IVF cycle. Trying to add a baby to your family can be a stressful time and regular acupuncture may also support your emotional wellbeing (1).
