Pre and Post Embryo Transfer Acupuncture Treatments
Undergoing an IVF cycle can present many challenges and most often can carry a toll both emotionally and physically on one’s body.
Today, Acupuncture is one of the most popular treatments used in adjunct with IVF, especially on the day of the embryo transfer.
Studies by Paulus et al. and Westergaard et al. showed pregnancy success rates when acupuncture was used on the day of transfer.
Each session consists of approximately 30 minutes each and is designed to optimise health, reduce stress and anxiety and in turn increase the chances of receiving a positive pregnancy result.
At the newLife centre for Women we offer both the pre and post embryo transfer acupuncture treatments as described in the studies mentioned above.
Post Egg Collection Acupuncture Treatment
Commonly used for pain relief and to help reduce swelling post an egg collection procedure.
The treatment also aims to help your body heal faster and improves recovery by increasing blood flow prior to an embryo transfer.
Treatments are available after an egg collection procedure and/or the day after.
Acupuncture Treatment During The 2 Week Wait (2WW)
The 2 Week Wait is the period before receiving the pregnancy test results. We find many women experience more stress and anxiety during the 2 Week Wait than prior to commencing an IVF treatment. At the newLife centre for Women our acupuncture treatments primarily focus on helping women to better cope and focus on promoting blood flow, improving sleep and reducing stress and anxiety.
Treatments available from Mon- Fri: 9am – 6pm
Saturdays: 8am – noon.
