Note: This article in no way claims these experts to be the absolute best, neither does BabyInfo or this article guarantee any sort of success with these fertility experts

The journey to pregnancy isn’t always a smooth one for different reasons.

Not being able to conceive a baby can have many emotional impacts and negative influences on a woman’s wellbeing.

However, thankfully there are many solutions available to treat fertility issues.

Before turning to medical intervention such as IVF treatment and other procedures, it is a refreshing to know that there are other more natural approaches available.

Fertility can be treated in a range of ways and it just a matter of finding the right method that works for you and your body.

One option that is becoming increasingly popular with fertility treatment is acupuncture. This ancient Chinese medicine involves thin, fine needles being pressed onto certain pressure points on the body.

It works to assist fertility by relieving stress, increasing blood flow to the reproductive organs, and balancing the endocrine system.

Acupuncture can be used throughout the monthly cycle to boost the chances of fertility. It can be administered during the follicular phase and the day before and after ovulation. Also, it is effective during implantation time.

Acupuncture works best over the long term so having 2 to 3 months of treatment while trying to get pregnant is most effective.

Around Melbourne, there are many acupuncture centres that offer speciality in treating infertility.

Here is a list of the top 50 fertility acupuncturists in Melbourne and some of the services they offer:
