Jacqueline Hurst founded her Fertility Support services in Warwickshire in 2007.
“My lonely journey of fertility treatment and wanting to better support couples in their journey’s to start a family has ultimately lead to me specialising in fertility acupuncture and other fertility support services. My own fertility journey began in 1985 whilst living in the USA and included years of IUI , 2 recurrent IVF failure, 2 miscarriages and then finally, years later to my surprise , a natural conception that so sadly ended in an ectopic pregnancy.
I am fully aware of how the daily injections, how looking for any signs of ovulation, the dreaded bleed or signs of pregnancy can drive you to distraction. I remember the feelings of having procedure after invasive procedure done to you and the feeling of being completely out of control and out of balance, and how this can lead to untold stress and anxiety.
In 1990 I successfully completed one of the first open adoptions in the state of Illinois USA. I feel truly blessed that my son’s Birth Mother invited me as her Birthing Partner into the delivery room and I was the first person to see my son.
I returned to England in 1998 and decided to investigate my passion for alternative medicine and was delighted to find one of the best Acupuncture Colleges right on my doorstep in Leamington Spa.
The Philosophy and training in Chinese Medicine sang to me. Chinese Medicine looks at the person as a whole, each organ working together in harmony. I believe that Traditional Chinese Medicine offered in conjunction with Western reproductive medicine increases the chances for conception. It can also help a woman move gently and naturally to a state of health and well-being that will allow her body to conceive naturally when possible and carry her baby to full term.
I feel that it is through my own experiences of infertility that I have a deeper understanding of what many of my patients are going through, “The wounded healer”.”
