Your fertility focus

We have been supporting couples on their fertility journey since 1999. We have worked with a wide range of circumstances, such as couples trying to improve their health pre-conception, supporting women who have a diagnosis of endometriosis, PCOS or fibroids, same-sex couples using donor sperm, complementing the IVF process, improving sperm parameters, secondary infertility, donor eggs, pregnancy after miscarriage, surrogacy and adoption. We are here to support you on your path to parenthood whatever your diagnosis or needs.

Don't worry if you cannot identify your fertility field, even if I see 10 people all with the same diagnosis they will all need a slightly different treatment approach and I can support you with a focus specifically for you. Our combination of acupuncture, CranioSacral therapy and fertility and womb massage along with self-care tips will help to improve all aspects of your health and promote your chances of conceiving whether that is naturally or with assistance.
