Planning to have a baby? Pre-conception care can increase natural fertility

Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine can help boost your health prior to conception so you and your eggs are as healthy as possible before your grand adventure to parenthood.

A healthy body and good egg quality is obviously key to having a healthy baby and for this reason it is widely recommended to nourish oneself for 3 months prior to conceiving because this is the amount of time an egg needs to mature, ovulate, fertilise, implant to finally make a baby.

Acupuncture and Chinese medicine has been treating infertility for over 2000 years and is increasingly recognized as a valuable treatment option either by itself or as in conjunction with western fertility treatments. Because of its ability to restore balance and harmony in the body,  relieve stress, regulate hormone levels and influence both the menstrual cycle and ovulation. Acupuncture is an effective treatment for “unexplained infertility” by restoring reproductive health.

When is fertility acupuncture most important?

A healthy body and good egg quality is obviously key to having a healthy baby and for this reason it is widely recommended to nourish oneself for 3 months prior to conceiving because this is the amount of time an egg needs to mature, ovulate, fertilise, implant to finally make a baby.

Proper nutrition, a balanced lifestyle and regular Acupuncture for 3 months prior to conceiving helps reduce stress,  regulate cycles, improve wellbeing,  increase nourishment to the eggs and the uterine lining thus increasing fertility and paving the way to a healthy pregnancy.

In infertile couples, the man would be sterile in 50% of cases.  Acupuncture can improve semen quality and sperm count to create healthier embryos. It is important for both partners to eat a well balanced diet, cut out alcohol, reduce stress and avoid excessive exercise.

Fertility Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine can:

  • regulate the menstrual cycle
  • improve ovarian function to produce better quality eggs
  • Regulate hormone levels to produce more follicles
  • Increase uterine blood flow to increase the thickness of the uterine lining
  • Facilitate implantation
  • Reduce stress
  • Strengthen the body and decrease the chances of miscarriage.
