Fertility

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been used for 2000 years for treating infertility. We work holistically to establish a balance that is helpful for conception.

Chinese Medicine can be used independently as a natural drug free treatment option to enhance fertility and can also be safely used in partnership with conventional Western Medical Fertility treatment including In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF), Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) and Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) procedures.

Infertility seems to affect more and more couples nowadays, but the good news is that very few couples are clinically infertile. Most women and their partners are simply not physically and emotionally in full reproductive health. Stress, anxiety and negative thoughts all impact infertility negatively.

As a practitioner Birga looks forward being part of your journey towards parenthood and will develop an individual treatment plan based on your information and your health picture. This plan will support you and your partner to address the underlying health issues, balance your system and create wellness. Whether you are seeking a natural solution or following assisted reproductive technology.
