The desire to have a baby can be intense to say the least. When things don’t go to plan or happen as quickly as we expect them to, it can also be frustrating, extremely stressful and even heartbreaking. Emotions fray and strain, and it feels like Brisbane is full of happy, pregnant couples everywhere you look.
However, a 2006 Australian National Fertility Survey showed that, in reality, across all age groups, one in six couples had still not conceived after trying for a year. So take heart in the knowledge that you’re not alone, and you can use natural treatments to improve your fertility and ability to carry a healthy pregnancy to full term.
West End practitioner Jodi Baldry understands that you’re going through a physically and emotionally difficult time. She works to improve your general wellbeing, reduce stress and anxiety, and help you feel supported and more hopeful and positive about the entire fertility process.
At the same time, she aims to address specific hormonal issues, balance irregular and/or painful cycles, increase blood flow to the uterus and ovaries, improve sperm and egg quality, and generally optimise health.
Despite common misconceptions, infertility is not only a female problem. Male factor infertility accounts for approximately 50% of all infertility problems. And about 40% of infertility treatments provided in Australia are targeted at male factors.
Traditional Chinese medicine offers natural fertility and preconception support to both men and women. It makes sense that both partners are as healthy as they can be for conception to occur. With this in mind, Jodi encourages both partners to consider preconception treatments.
