Natalie specialises in acupuncture as a support treatment for women undergoing or thinking of fertility treatment or other conventional therapy.
Various studies have shown that Acupuncture can increase the sucess rates of fertility treatments such as IVF, such as one by the University of Maryland School of Medicine and one undertaken by researchers at the Christian-Lauritzen-Institute.
A study by the University Of Maryland School Of Medicine suggests that women who undergo IVF can increase their chances of pregnancy by up to 65% when also treated with acupuncture. Women undergoing fertility treatment could have their chances of success boosted by acupuncture.
Meanwhile, German researchers suggest that they have increased success rates by almost 50% in women having in vitro fertilisation (IVF).
A recent German study by researchers at the Christian-Lauritzen-Institute, published in April 2002 suggested that just two acupuncture treatments on the day of embryo transfer increased the chances of becoming pregnant through IVF by 62%.
Irregular periods: After being on the pill for 14/15 years... my periods became very irregular when I came off (the pill). I would sometimes have a period every 2 weeks, sometimes no period for 3 months. After about 10 treatments with Natalie, my periods have stabilised and are now every 28/29 days. As a result my husband and I have been able to start a family! We have a two year old son and another baby on the way and we are delighted.
Fertility: I am convinced that coming to Natalie for acupuncture helped us conceive. We had had 3 failed IVF cycles and then I started coming to Natalie for acupuncture and reflexology before my 4th attempt and that was the one that worked! It helped enormously with my stress levels during pregnancy too.
