What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture involves safely inserting needles into different areas of the body along specific organ channels; it is an ancient practice that is effective for a variety of hormonal conditions.
It has been shown to improve fertility, enhance the outcomes of IVF and IUI procedures, shorten the time of labour when administered appropriately during pregnancy, and improve conditions with an underlying hormonal imbalance such as endometriosis, PCOS, fibroids, and PMS.
Acupuncture has been shown to improve the rates of conception in women time and time again.
Whether you’re just starting your journey to conceiving a child or are well on your way, acupuncture can help optimise your hormones, help shrink/eliminate cysts and fibroids, improve circulation to your reproductive organs, and help maintain a pregnancy once you’ve conceived.
IVF & IUI Acupuncture
Research has shown that acupuncture can increase the success rates of IVF and IUI procedures which is why many fertility clinics recommend it as an adjunctive therapy.
Acupuncture sessions are held as close as possible before and after transfer procedures as as well as leading up to egg retrieval and implantation.
Pre-labour acupuncture is a great way to help with cervical ripening and helping the body get ready for labour. This type of acupuncture is associated with better birth outcomes such as shorter labour times and improved labour progress. Typically, this type of acupuncture is started at week 36 or 37 and continued until labour starts.
If you’re overdue, there are naturopathic ways to help move things along.
