IVF Acupuncture Melbourne

IVF Acupuncture is an ideal assistant treatment for IVF insemination; we encourage women to receive IVF acupuncture treatments before and after embryo transfer, especially few hours before you receiving the IVF treatment.
It is also advisable for pregnant women to receive a pregnancy acupuncture treatment to prevent miscarriage. Treatment of patients undertaking fertility acupuncture may often last through week twelve to help prevent miscarriage, since most miscarriages occur within the first three months of pregnancy.
