Trying to conceive?
We see people in the clinic every day who are trying to conceive and have unexplained symptoms of infertility. So, we are super familiar with the fertility terrain and can help you navigate it. We understand that it can be a tough time.
Our principal practitioner here at Freedom Chinese Medicine in Melbourne went through infertility herself so really understands how it can be. She undertook extensive training, and at 41yo with low AMH, she finally conceived naturally and had a healthy baby in 2018. Therefore, all of our practitioners have extra fertility training. So you’re in the right place when looking for support! 🙂
Most of the women or couples we see are between 35 and 45. Many have conditions like endometriosis, PCOS, low egg count, or other fertility challenges. So please take heart if you’re in this boat. You have many options. Regardless of what some fertility experts may tell you. Come, meet us and have a chat to us and we can help you navigate this maze..

Many women and couples find our sessions empowering, informative and relaxing. And are pleasantly surprised at the outcomes.
There is some research evidence that Chinese medicine or Acupuncture treatment may assist in supporting specific fertility treatments, such as IVF. There is also broad agreement by Chinese medicine practitioners and other health practitioners about acupuncture as an adjunct treatment for IVF.

The use of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine in assisting pregnancy & labour was first mentioned in the Moxibustion Methods for Emergencies by Wenren Qinian in 1226. In Chinese hospitals, these techniques have been used for centuries, however the research to date, although promising, is not yet sufficient for this traditional method to be incorporated into clinical practice guidelines for fertility specialists or obstetricians in Melbourne, Australia.
