Acupuncture for Fertility

I have a special interest in acupuncture for fertility, having used acupuncture for fertility myself.

There may be a number of reasons why you are interested in acupuncture:

  • in preparation for conception, to be in optimal health
  • you have been trying to conceive naturally for a while and have no known fertility issues – unexplained infertility
  • you have been trying to conceive naturally for a while and have known fertility issues
  • you want to compliment fertility treatment with acupuncture –  IVF or other fertility treatments
  • you already have one or more children but are having difficulty conceiving and/or holding further pregnancies to term – secondary infertility

The number of treatments required varies by each individual.

Acupuncture takes a holistic approach, treating the whole individual. By helping to restore balance and promote physical & emotional harmony, acupuncture gets to the root of imbalance and doesn’t just treat medical labels.

The BAcC produce fact sheets, including research, on acupuncture and fertility:

  • Female infertility
  • Female fertility & IVF briefing paper
  • Male infertility
  • IVF / ART

When having acupuncture you typically feel more revitalised, positive and relaxed.

AFNI am a member of the acupuncture fertility network, which means I have been trained to degree level in acupuncture and taken further post graduate training specifically in the use of acupuncture for fertility and IVF.


I have completed the Advanced Level Diploma in Fertility with Naava Carmen and I am an active member of the related Fertility Support Trained practitioner group which includes a commitment to continuing my professional development in fertility every year.  

You will find me listed as a Fertility Support Trained Expert.
