I am passionate about working with acupuncture to boost natural fertility and support clients through the emotional and physical impact of IVF. I have first-hand experience of various stages of fertility treatment, culminating in IVF which has left me with a deep, open-hearted appreciation for how the whole fertility thing can make people feel and a determination to make a difference to others who are treading this path. I will put my heart and soul into trying to make your dream happen, and would be honoured to use my extensive knowledge to support and empower you through this difficult time.
I am an advocate for the use of acupuncture throughout pregnancy; it is a wonderfully gentle, supportive and non-toxic therapy to use for a wide range of health and wellness issues ranging from hay fever and migraines to antenatal anxiety and depression. Prebirth acupuncture is a specific series of treatments at the end of pregnancy to help to prepare the body for labour and delivery.
I know that not everyone will experience a rainbow at the end of their journey, but I know that the right acupuncturist can make this difficult journey so much more bearable. Acupuncture can help support someone dealing with grief and depression; I also have training in body centred psychotherapy which has a strong influence on how I am within the clinic space. This combination of skills enables me to offer empowering, compassionate support, wherever the journey goes.
