|Many women choose Acupuncture as a safe and effective method to treat a variety of conditions during pregnancy. I have a special interest and experience in treating women at this time to help:
Infertility and Support through Assisted Fertility
Acupuncture can be highly beneficial in preparation for Assisted Fertility (IVF, ICSI, IUI, egg donation)- during the treatment cycle and to rebalance the body following a failed cycle. Holly Woodward is experienced in treating women undergoing Assisted Fertility, and worked for Zita West at ‘The Zita West Clinic’, a leading fertility clinic in Central London. Acupuncture, alongside lifestyle advice, on a weekly basis (at specific stages of treatment) helps to detoxify and balance the body, build up the womb lining, grow follicles and post transfer helps with maintaining pregnancy.
Studies have shown that acupuncture on day of embryo transfer (pre & post) can improve IVF outcome.
