My journey to have a baby – Adele

After numerous attempts to conceive including 3 IUI’s, 2 fresh and one frozen cycle of IVF there were moments when I felt like I’d lost all hope. It was 3 months prior to starting another IVF cycle when I spoke to a friend who suggested I try acupuncture.
I made an appointment with Emma at Harmony Acupuncture. On the first visit, Emma asked lots of questions and gave me a thorough consultation. I then had a 20 minute acupuncture session which I found very relaxing. I began going every week and the sessions were run alongside and adapted to suit my IVF treatment.
When the time came for my egg collection, my eggs were of very good quality and at the time of embryo transfer, 2 of the best quality embryos I’d ever had were transferred. During the 2 week wait, I still visited Emma and found that it really helped with the dreaded wait! Emma was also very supportive and I found it great to be able to talk to somebody about it.
I finally got the news I’d been waiting for, for 5 years and I am currently 12 weeks pregnant. I am still having acupuncture and will continue to go monthly throughout my pregnancy as I find it so relaxing. I must add that I have hardly suffered from morning sickness either. I truly believe that it was the acupuncture which helped me this time and would highly recommend it to anyone. Thanks Emma!
