funny lady with the pins.

“H J arrived safely into the world on Tuesday at 11.10am weighing 7lbs.  Mummy, Daddy and H are doing brilliantly and are very happy to be home.

Labour plans were thrown out the window but we managed in the end with an epidural, some brilliant super star pushing and little Kiwi help. I’m feeling surprisingly well and only in a little discomfort.

Thank you so much for all your support. Harris is looking forward to meeting the funny lady with the pins.Love C B”

I saw this lovely couple when they were embracing their 2nd round of IVF. The reason for assisted conception was that there were issues around low AMH and poor sperm quality. The couple had already gone trough 3 rounds of IUI and had failed their last IVF.

This time they wanted to make sure they were fully prepared, so came to see me. I suggested that they have an Endometrial Scratch prior to this next IVF/ICSI cycle and we also did electro acupuncture during stimulation to help boos the number of follicles. The previous years of trying to conceive had taken its toll and now we were also struggling with symptoms of anxiety and depression. As a psychotherapist I am able to offer a variety of counselling treatments including CBT therapy to help over come negative thought patterns and offer relaxation techniques to help with anxiety. I supported the long protocol regime with Acupuncture treatments, then went on to treat on a monthly basis during the pregnancy.

It was such a pleasure to work with this lovely couple who were trying for their baby for at least 3 years, the supplement and nutritional advice plus acupuncture treatment helped this couple successfully achieve pregnancy first time round with IVF. I believe that it is vitally important to prepare your self mind/body and spirit so that you give yourself the very best chance of making your first attempt with IVF / ICSI work.

Baby O

“Our Beautiful baby Girl was born on 04/01/15 10 days late but well worth the wait she is so cute mom and baby home now and doing well. :)”

This lovely couple came to see me after trying for a baby for 10 months. Everything seemed normal, cycles were regularly 28-30 days and ovulation seemed to be occurring. We carried out ovulation monitoring buy Basal Temperature Charting in conjunction with OPK kit and changed a few lifestyle issues.

During the traditional diagnoses I detected that maybe this was a case of sticky blood, due to slight clotting during her period and other symptoms picked up during traditional diagnoses. After trying to conceive naturally for a few cycles we decided to seek more exploratory tests.

The next step seemed to be a little daunting and after one session of counselling the couple seemed ready to move on to assisted conception. I referred them to Dr Rina Agrawal at Coventry University Hospital Centre for Reproductive Medicine (CRM). It was discovered that there was some mild endometriosis and on further examination there was also a male issue.

The couple were successful with their first NHS ICSI cycle and now have a beautiful baby girl.
