It is accepted that stress plays a huge part in the process of going through the fertility treatment and even when trying naturally.
Taking time to relax and doing what you like to unwind is crucial. Having an odd glass of wine and a walk in a park or a cooling swim is fine.
Alternative therapies such as reflexology, aromatherapy and abdominal massage may benefit you psychologically and help you cope with the pressures.
A healthy body with moderate exercise and a calm mind with the help of any of the above will bring more positivity to your lives.
The ancient Chinese technique of acupuncture is a very popular and in demand and the psychological and relaxation benefits are well documented in the literature.
Acupuncture has scientifically shown benefits in selected groups of women trying for a baby and Mr. Gudi and Mr. Shah may recommend the use of acupuncture after further discussion with you. An accredited and experienced therapist with special interest in fertility could then be recommended.
Acupuncture therapy can be used before, during and after assisted conception treatments as well as during pregnancy.
A healthy, well balanced diet helps improve both female and male fertility. Eating your five a day of fruit and vegetables, choosing lean meat and a balanced amount of calcium and minerals, whilst remaining well hydrated, will add to your general health and well being.

Couples with specific nutritional concerns are advised to see the nutritionist by Mr. Shah and Mr. Gudi.
