What a difference 12 months can make!!

“Baby BA was born on Sat morning 8lb 3 oz . He is so beautiful , we will pop over and introduce him very soon xxxx”

What a difference 12 months can make!! I began treatment with this lovely young couple exactly one year ago to the day of the Birth of their beautiful baby boy. The couple really wanted to improve their chances of their first IVF treatment being successful. I treated both with acupuncture and gave advice around best vitamin supplements etc. Mom to be received a series of electro treatments prior to the actual ICSI cycle. We then worked on the cycle as normal, I also treated Dad to be to help with his morphology and motility (on his sample). Everything went perfectly. We even got to freeze embryos so a fantastic response. I saw Mom for monthly treatments throughout the pregnancy. Then during the last month I gave weekly acupuncture to prepare for labour and to help with little ones arrival, it was a real privilege to work with this fantastic couple.

I came to see Jacqueline

“I came to see Jacqueline for natural fertility acupuncture. I was instantly put at ease and reassured. I liked Jacqueline’s honesty. She told me how long she was prepared to see me for and if nothing was to happen and then we would discuss other options.

I had three sessions the first month; preparation for ovulation, ovulation and implantation. After each session I felt relaxed and more in control of my emotions. I felt positive and the monthly stress and anxiety I felt appeared to lift. I found acupuncture to be very proactive. Jacqueline’s calm and professional approach shone through. It worked that month, I had a positive pregnancy test! I am convinced the acupuncture played a part in this.

I continued to see Jacqueline throughout my pregnancy. It was relaxing and she would focus on areas of discomfort for me or the growth of the baby. I have just given birth to my daughter! Thank you Jacqueline!”

Many of the patients that I see are very keen to conceive as naturally as possible. I am happy to say that many times we are successful within the first 3 months of acupuncture treatment. For many patients its about taking some control over their fertility. As part of my counselling and support role I offer the most up to date researched advice and information. I attend the very best yearly conferences to ensure that I have the most accurate knowledge in all areas of fertility.

thank you so much for your kindness

“I have been meaning to email you since June to let you know all about my beautiful baby boy, A M. He is such a happy smiley baby and is a total blessing to me and j. If it wasn’t for your care and attention he wouldn’t be here now. I am so grateful for your acupuncture treatments and your support in getting me seen by the right Consultant. I was lost in the conceiving labyrinth – thank goodness I found you!
Once again, thank you so much for your kindness.”

Acupuncture and recurrent miscarriage

I feel really passionate about the patients that I see suffering with the heart break of the loss of their baby through miscarriage or those suffering from recurrent miscarriage. It is documented that one in four women have at least one miscarriage, so that is estimated at around a quarter of a million women in the UK each year. Recurrent Miscarriage is defined as 3 consecutive miscarriages, meaning that this affects approximately 1% of women.

Research has shown that when you combine acupuncture and IVF the success rate goes from 26% to 43% and it has also understood that acupuncture reduces the risk of miscarriage, also showing that when undergoing IVF 20% miscarried not having received acupuncture compared to 8% of those that had acupuncture treatment.

The Causes of Miscarriage:

Miscarriage can be a result of genetic, hormonal, immunological, physiological, anatomical or environmental factors.

Recurrent Miscarriage may also be linked with blood clotting disorders. acupuncture is known to help with improving blood flow to the uterus, and also improve hormonal production. Of course helping mom to feel more relaxed and reducing stress levels greatly enhances success rates. As a practitioner and a counsellor I find this area of my work most satisfying, and find such satisfaction in helping couples that have been struggling with this very difficult issue.
