The Little Monkey surprised us

The Little Monkey surprised us: Born 18th Sep 2014 born 6 weeks early.

I began to see this lovely couple in January 2013. At that point they had been trying for 1 ½ years to conceive. They had begun assisted conception with two stimulated cycles of clomid, without success. The couple came to see me to help enhance their fertility and to improve their chances of success with their IVF cycle at Coventry Reproductive unit (CRM) The couple had acupuncture treatment along side their long protocol IVF / ICSI. The response to this first round was poor; it proved that in hindsight preparation could have been better.

After this first failed attempt we reviewed what had happened and discussed how things could be improved, I used electro stimulation acupuncture to give a deeper treatment. We were able to recruit 6 eggs 4 of which fertilised and we were able to go to blast. This was a great improvement and resulted in the birth of their beautiful baby daughter.
