Our Natural Fertility Support Program helps couples increase their likelihood of conceiving naturally.

Our Natural Fertility Support Program was designed to help couples fall pregnant by promoting a fertile physical and psychological environment suitable for a natural, healthy conception. Our Natural Fertility Support Program is for couples who want assistance conceiving naturally before having to rely heavily on medical intervention or heading down the IVF path.

We use a combination of acupuncture and traditional Chinese Medicine to relax both male and female bodies and assist in creating the ideal environment for pregnancy.

What causes of infertility does our Natural Fertility Support Program address?

There are a number of reasons couples experience a delay in falling pregnant. Being overworked, stressed, emotional disorders, menstrual irregularities, improper diet/lifestyle and a variety of medical conditions can all be detrimental to your fertility health.

Not being able to conceive can be extremely confusing and stressful for couples and the search for answers can cause a great deal of strain on the relationship. At Spring we have created a program that assists couples through this stage in their life addressing all areas of their fertility health to optimize their chances of falling pregnant, without the need for drugs that may be potentially harmful and invasive procedures.

Our program takes the stress out of what can be a very emotional time as we support both the male and female on a physical, psychological and pathophysiological level.

Being diagnosed with a medical condition that affects your fertility can be an incredibly difficult time for many women. Conditions such as PCOS (poly-cystic ovary syndrome), endometriosis and PID (pelvic inflammatory disease) are a few of the more prevalent health concerns women present with as a possible cause of their delayed fertility. Clinical trials have shown acupuncture to be effective in treating the symptoms of conditions such as endometriosis and can regulate any internal factors these conditions can impart on your fertility health (3).

Weighing up the financial and health costs of drug therapy that artificially control hormones in an attempt to improve your chances of conception is a decision that shouldn’t be taken lightly. Too often couples rush into having these clinical procedures when trying naturally with the help of acupuncture, herbs and the right advice can be more effective and a whole lot better for your body and mind (1).

For most couples simple lifestyle changes and acupuncture treatments that gently assist the body to regulate any internal factors that are impeding pregnancy will dramatically improve your chance of conception. At Spring we use acupuncture, herbs and supplementation to optimize your chances of a healthy conception and pregnancy.

Is there science behind our Natural Fertility Support Program?

With the support of Traditional Chinese Medicine pregnancy rates have been shown to improve ‘2-fold within a 4 month period compared with Western medical fertility drug therapy or IVF’ according to one Australian Systematic Review (1).

A 2011 study published in the Fertility and Sterility Journal demonstrated that ‘stress can significantly reduce the probability of conception each day during the fertile window’ (2). Suggesting the use of Acupuncture when trying to conceive may reduce stress and its undesirable effects on hormones,  improving your chances of pregnancy, especially for those who lead busy and demanding lives (4).

When should you start this program?

It is best to start this program before you want to start trying to conceive. Ideally 3-9 months before conception to implement any lifestyle changes and alter any internal factors affecting both you and your partner’s fertility health.
