Pregnancy and Fertility - Indie Acupuncture

Pregnancy and Fertility

Acupuncture and herbs are a safe and effective way to enhance fertility, prevent miscarriage, and maintain a healthy pregnancy. Chinese Medicine has been used for over 4,000 years to promote health and well-being. It can be used alone or as an adjunct therapy to Western medicine and midwifery.

Fertility, IUI, IVF

Acupuncture can help to balance your body in order to prepare for conception. Whether you are trying to conceive naturally or with the help of Western medical treatment, acupuncture can help you to conceive.

In 2002, a German study indicated that women who received acupuncture with Western fertility treatments had a success rate of 43%, while the control group who received Western fertility treatments without acupuncture had a much lower success rate of 26%. (“Fertility and Sterility”, Vol. 77, No.4, April 2002.)
