What does the program involve?
Each program is customised to our patient’s needs and all clients are treated empathetically with professional and confidential care. Most patients receive a combination of acupuncture, electro acupuncture, or laser therapy.
When can I start?
You can start acupuncture and any of our treatments at any time of your pregnancy during your pregnancy when you experience symptoms or towards the end of your pregnancy if you want to prepare your body for childbirth. Please email us and one of our fertility specialists will call you back to schedule your first appointment.
Is the Program safe for me and my baby?
Yes. Our practitioners will ensure they have a full medical history to highlight any risk factors. Acupuncture is generally considered a safe and low intervention treatment that can be used with many co-existing medical conditions.
Acupuncture has been shown to be a very effective complementary medicine and often improves patients’ response to standard medical treatment.
Our therapists can liaise with other health care providers and doctors if requested.
