Acupuncture for Fertility & Pregnancy
Helping your family grow
If you’re experiencing difficulties in trying to conceive, this can easily become one of the most stressful times of your life.
Samantha has a particular interest in working with couples with fertility issues. Acupuncture may be recommended by many health practitioners as an adjunct treatment which may assist with IVF (1). Research is ongoing (2) about how acupuncture can assist with the effectiveness of IVF treatments and Samantha is happy to consult with you about how acupuncture may be able to help you.
Enjoying your pregnancy
Getting pregnant is only the start of you and your baby’s path through life together. Pregnancy is a time when looking after yourself makes more sense than ever. This is a unique window, in this formative stage in your lives, to nourish yourself and your baby.
Acupuncture may be able to help you with with nausea and vomiting as well as pregnancy related muscular-skeletal pain (1)
Samantha is ready to join you on your journey
“I enjoy listening to people, hearing their stories and being able to offer them hope for their future. This is particularly true for fertility patients, who are often fearful and losing hope, enabling them to see there is another viewpoint can be inspiring for many.”
