One in three couples finds it difficult to conceive. If you’re one of them, you’re likely wondering why everyone else seems to be able to get pregnant when you can’t. It’s a stressful time that takes a lot out of you, emotionally and physically. You spend your time fighting internal pressures, fielding questions about pregnancy and kids, and stressing about having sexual intercourse because you have to, not because you necessarily want to – it’s a lot to deal with.
Whether going down the assisted conception route or not, you’ll likely be looking for solutions and help as well as ways to relieve stress and take your mind off pregnancy and babies. There’s many options out there, one of which is Reproflexology.
Developed by Barbra Scott-Brunger at Seren Natural Fertility, Reproflexology™ or Reproductive Reflexology follows your natural or medicated cycle to enhance your natural fertility or work alongside assisted conception including Clomid, intrauterine insemination (IUI), In vitro fertilisation (IVF), and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). It also works to destress both you and your partner.
Is Reproflexology for me?
If you’re thinking about trying to conceive or are in the middle of your fertility journey, Reproflexology is for you.
I am happy to see you at any stage, but ideally, we would start treatment three months before you start trying. This ensures you’re both in the best possible health; It also takes three months for sperm to mature.
What to expect at consultations
Before your first consultation, I will email you and your partner a questionnaire that will form part of the discussion on your first visit. Please fill it in as fully as possible and include a copy of any test results you have.
Your first visit will be information collecting, planning and a reproflexology treatment for one of you. Both you and your partner should attend if possible; it may last up to two hours depending on the complexity of your case. Future appointments are one hour fifteen minutes and consist of an update on progress and your Reproflexology treatment.
It’s a gentle treatment that will feel relaxing and pain-free. Usually, you’ll lie on the couch under blankets at a slight incline with your feet exposed. It’s important you feel comfortable though, so if you’d rather sit, I will adapt the treatment for you.
I may also ask if you wish to temperature chart as it will enable us to see what is happening during your cycles. If so, I will provide a thermometer at your initial consultation. I may recommend other supplements as well, though they will be an additional cost. Sperm Testing (The SpermComet test) from Lewis Fertility Testing is also available to check the DNA in the sperm head should you wish.
As a fully qualified Reproflexologist™, Naturopathic Nutritional Therapist, and Homeopath, I will use a combination of these therapies to provide a holistic approach to conception and pregnancy. I recommend that we carry out treatments weekly initially, moving to fortnightly as your cycle regulates.
