Very exciting

“Just to let you know we got a positive today! Very exciting! Thanks for the treatments – I know they made a massive difference. Scan 15th October to see if there’s one or two… Love Liz & Chris”

This young couple were very happy as their first attempt at IVF was successful – a pregnancy! I gave acupuncture treatments throughout the assisted cycle, gave supplement and nutritional advice and everything worked perfectly.

Support and Help

“Thanks for all the support & help over the past few months, it has made all the difference.

Love Ellen xxx”

I saw this lovely young couple just before their first attempt at IVF. There was an issue of low ovarian reserve discovered after AMH Fertility Testing by the hospital, unfortunately this news had a devastating effect and now we were dealing with profound negativity around whether this process was ever going to work.

I suggested supplements and relaxation techniques. With counselling and acupuncture as well I was able to support this couple through the process of assisted conception. They were overjoyed when it worked first time! I gave monthly acupuncture treatment throughout the pregnancy and they now have beautiful little boy.

We are having twin girls

“Me and Mark would like to thank you for all your support. I am now 24 weeks pregnant. Without your dedication to your profession we might not of got here.

You even came to our house to treat me on a Sunday at 10pm after embroyo transfer. I am convinced that having your treatments alongside IVF helped this cycle become successful.

We are having twin girls.

I would recommend your services to anyone. I heard of you from a lady at work who also had success with having her baby girl. Just wish I had found you sooner.”

So happy to help at any time, to see the happiness that having a family brings to my clients gives me the drive to go to any lengths to help achieve that goal. Sometimes it is essential for acupuncture treatments to be given at the critical points in the cycle so I will go out of my way to make it work. I have a wall full of baby photographs at my Leamington Clinic to prove it :))

  • Luteinising Hormone (LH) mid cycle measured by urinary oestrogeon gives indication ovulation may take place within 36 hrs of fertile window, not always conclusive, may be backed up by an ultra sound scan.
  • Progesterone levels above 30 nmol/l day 21 good indication of ovulation.
