If you’re thinking of starting or growing your family, you’re probably full of emotion. Hopefully, everything goes to plan and you have a smooth pregnancy, straightforward birth, and healthy baby; it’s the dream, though often not the reality. In fact, one in seven UK couples have trouble conceiving, which equates to 3.5 million people.
Whether conceiving naturally or with the help of medicine, the journey to parenthood can take a lot out of you and leave you feeling stressed, emotionally drained, and in need of support. There are many options out there, but with so much choice, finding the right help can get expensive and involve relaying a stressful story to multiple people. You may also find your needs change as you progress through the process; what worked to relax you while trying to conceive may not work as effectively when your pregnant, for example.
With my integrated approach to fertility, I use a combination of therapies to support you and your partner in the best way possible at every stage, from pre-conception through to pregnancy, birth and beyond. I can help:
- You to relax and destress
- Boost your fertility and improve egg and sperm health
- Balance hormones and improve irregular cycles
- Increase effectiveness of medical fertility assistance
- Increase blood flow and boost your circulation
- With insomnia and sleep issues
- Improve your mental health
- Ensure you have healthiest pregnancy possible
- To empower you to have the best birth experience
- To give your baby the best start to life
With my background in children’s nursing and experience with miscarriages, still, and traumatic births – read about my experience here – I am well placed to provide the support you need.

What to expect
You can start treatment with me at any stage of your fertility journey, but ideally, we would start treatment three to six months before you start trying. This ensures you’re both in the best possible health. It also takes three months for sperm to mature and an egg can take 4 to 6 months to mature. I am happy to work with individuals or couples. Treatment plans are all bespoke and based on your needs.
Before your first consultation, I will email you and your partner a questionnaire that will form part of the discussion on your first visit, it will ask for details of your medical history, current fertility situation and lifestyle information. Please fill it in as fully as possible and include a copy of any test results you have. We’ll then talk through the process and range of therapies I offer. You’ll have the opportunity to ask any questions and we’ll come up with a bespoke treatment plan.
