Preparation for Pregnancy or IVF

The Preparing for Pregnancy program through Acupuncture & Nutrition at The Crane Clinic seeks to guide you through optimising your chances to reach your goal of a healthy pregnancy and creating life.

Both partners play a vital role in nourishing the soon to be embryo, as the quality of the male sperm is just as important as the female egg quality. Roughly three months preparation pre- conception is recommended as this is the length of time it takes for eggs and sperm to mature. A good blood supply, the right nutrients, correct hormonal signalling and the capacity to supply adequate energy to the embryo is a particularly important consideration for eggs coming from women with somewhat older ovaries or anyone diagnosed with PCOS.

Many women have a thin endometrium or uterine lining and may have a diagnosis of endometriosis or inflammation which can adversely affect implantation. Nutrition, Acupuncture and Herbs can improve blood quality and uterine lining and reduce inflammatory markers to enhance implantation and prevent miscarriage.

Our therapists educate Mum’s to be to become more aware of the body’s changes at ovulation and what a regulated menstrual cycle should look like so that they can accurately pinpoint their fertile window.

Stress can negatively impact fertility and affect hormonal balance. Acupuncture is renowned for its tremendous ability to relax the nervous system, working to raise endorphin levels and reduce adrenalin and cortisol levels quietening the mind and relaxing the body.
