Fertility & pregnancy support in Cannock

Mum enjoys natural health remedies and after researching her options she chose to have acupuncture to assist her and her partner with fertility. In the first instance Mum appointed British acupuncture council member Mike Gorman at his private practice in Solihull. During this time we were introduced and I felt privileged to join mum in her fertility journey. After several treatments Mum was discharged shortly after receiving a positive pregnancy test.  Result!

Living nearer to my practice in Cannock it seemed the sensible choice when later requiring treatment during the third trimester of pregnancy and in preparation for her birth experience.

Mum had only two treatments in preparation for the birth of her baby.  During our consultation at the second appointment i had observed a change in shape and position of the baby. Following her treatment, mum headed off for cervical ripening and was informed that she was 2 cm’s dilated and her waters were bulging. The following day baby Leo joined the world keen to meet his new family;  mum reports that all went well, she’d had no gas and air, nor time to apply the magnets that I had provided that help with relaxation.

I’m sure you’ll join me in wishing the family all the very best for the future.

What a cutie!

Here’s a note from mum!

 

Fertility acupuncture – Where to begin.  In 2012 I had my first miscarriage followed by the birth of a healthy baby boy in May 2013.  Like many people I convinced myself that the first miscarriage “was just one of those things”.  Subsequent miscarriages followed and with my 5th one in March 2015, I decided that if I wanted a different outcome, then I needed to do something different.  I read about ‘fertility acupuncture’ and decided to give it a go, and liked that there were no drugs involved.  I decided that if it didn’t help, it wouldn’t do any harm.  Within the first month of acupuncture I fell pregnant and as the weeks passed early scans showed a healthy baby growing as baby should.  Something that had not happened in the last four pregnancies, I continued with acupuncture until 9 weeks. At 38 weeks I was due to be medically induced due to complications, so at 36 weeks I decided to prepare myself for birth and turned to acupuncture again; at 37 weeks I gave birth to a healthy baby boy in less than an hour. This birth was much quicker than my previous delivery; something I believe was most definitely achieved as a result of my receiving acupuncture.

I will most definitely turn to acupuncture in the future.

Gaynor helped me feel at ease during all of my treatments and whilst no guarantees could be given the sessions helped me relax and I believe that a successful pregnancy is possible.  I know that I have a beautiful boy thanks to acupuncture.

A year ago I tried acupuncture for the first time. It was six months since my second pregnancy loss and I had become anxious about my fertility and health. I was also still dealing with feelings of loss.

I found acupuncture helped me to feel back in control of both my body and mind and much more positive. Gaynor was very caring and in tune with what my body needed to be back in balance. Within five weeks of weekly treatments I discovered I was pregnant! I am sitting here now with our three month old baby girl. I can only thank Gaynor for helping me at a difficult time and then in my early and late stages of pregnancy. I thoroughly recommend Gaynor for anyone experiencing similar issues.
