Hannah Pearn’s team are based at CBH (along with another Clinic in Streatham). Here Hannah Pearn, Clinical Director, explains how the acupuncture they offer can help with Fertility and IVF:

We a team of specialist acupuncturists, based in two clinics (one being at CBH) in South London who are experts in Fertility and Women’s Health.  We are all Fertility Support trained acupuncturists, or currently undertaking this rigorous training, which enables us to offer the very best care and fertility acupuncture.

  • when trying to conceive for the first time
  • if you’ve miscarried
  • have menstrual cycle problems, including PCOS, Endometriosis
  • you’ve been told you have unexplained infertility

 

How does Acupuncture for Fertility help with getting pregnant?

Acupuncture has been found to:

  • help reduce stress, which can impact hormonal balances
  • increase blood flow to the ovaries
  • improve the endometrial lining of the uterus

And many people we work with report that having someone support you while you’re going through, what can be for many, a very stressful is invaluable,

“The most knowledgeable and caring professional who looked after us through our infertility journey. Always going the extra mile and furthering her knowledge to better serve her patients. We wouldn’t be a family today without her ❤️❤️”

Acupuncture for IVF support

Acupuncture to support your health while going through IVF treatment.

IVF can be a stressful experience and often the road to this point has also been difficult. We support people with preparation for treatment and then during IVF.

 

Acupuncture for IVF can help with:

  • preparation for IVF/IUI to get you sleeping well, regulate your cycle and reduce stress
  • support for emotional and physical health during treatment
  • pre and post transfer support

 

When to start acupuncture for IVF

We recommend starting acupuncture and any of our additional treatments (nutrition, herbs, reflexology) 3 months before as this amount of time maximising the benefits from the treatments and allows enough time for positive change.  Your acupuncture will vary according to which IVF protocol you are following, long or short protocols, frozen embryo cycles or natural cycle. Each of our plans is unique to the individual we are working with.
