Acupuncture in Birmingham for IVF Support

Acupuncture supporting you

Women seeking acupuncture treatments for preparation and while they are going through the IVF process has become very common in recent years.

Acupuncture can provide assistance during this time on several levels.

The first and most obvious level is in the reduction of stress and optimising your health as far as possible. Taking time to talk through your situation before and during treatments is part of the process in working with and dissolving the stress impact on your body. Ideally, working at this level, it is best to commence acupuncture sessions 6-8 weeks before your IVF process begins.

Doing all you can

Acupuncture is one of the ways of ensuring you are doing all you can

Several studies have highlighted the benefits of acupuncture specifically on the day of embryo transfer.

They showed that treatment before and after transfer was the best way of using acupuncture to maximise its benefits.

In most cases Jon will advise a before-and-after treatment on the transfer day.

Being located in Edgbaston this is particularly convenient for patients using the Birmingham Women's Hospital or the Priory Hospital.

Working with the process

The second set of benefits acupuncture provides while patients are undergoing IVF are based around the possible stages of the process and how acupuncture can optimise them or help with the side effects they create. The protocol developed out of several research outcomes that Jon's treatments are based on aims to:

improve egg quality
improve embryo quality
improve quality of the endometrium
reduce unwanted side effects of drugs
regulate hormones
reduce chance of miscarriage
strengthen the immune system

"Our first scan revealed it was twins. I firmly believe that acupuncture assisted in the success of our IVF."
