I’ve been doing a lot of work this week with the whole range of fertility and pregnancy treatment.
Some women have been coming with no obvious clinical problem, but wanting to maximise their health and fertility, perhaps after finding that a couple of years have gone by and no pregnancy.
Other women come with problems like polycystic ovary syndrome or endometriosis.
I also get a lot of referrals for acupuncture support through IVF treatment.
I’ll write in more detail about the acupuncture approach to each of these in later blogs as there’s so much to unravel in each case from a Chinese medicine point of view.
Meanwhile I’m soaking up some warm sunshine in the World Peace Cafe, one of my favourite places in Ulverston for lunch.
My last client was a lovely lady who I’ve supported at various stages through her pregnancy. We were doing one of my all time favourite treatments; using moxa on Bl67 to help turn her baby from a breech position.
Fingers crossed, but in 15 years of acupuncture I truly can’t remember a single baby who hasn’t turned after this treatment!
Another moment of just loving my work!
