Acupuncture and hormones
Acupuncture, in combination with herbs and diet advice, is very effective in treating issues related to the hormonal system are in general. From menstrual problems to menopause, and all kinds of matters around fertility and pregnancy are great to work with.
The sessions are full of personal attention and genuine involvement. Your story and emotional life is important to pay attention to. To me this is important because in fertility processes, for example, in hospital there is not much time to talk about your personal and emotional experiences, yet it is a very emotional process. It is important to vent your emotions and free your mind, as this contributes relaxation. We work together in your fertility process.
Fertility (in your own cycle, IUI, IVF, ICSI)
The wish to become mother can be a deep desire which sometimes takes a lot of patience and effort to fulfill. If becoming pregnant takes a while, it is frustrating, sad and time-consuming. It can cause stress in your relationship and intimacy. And one thing you don’t need during this phase is stress.
From a Chinese perspective you look differently at health. Your cycle is a wave of different alternating phases of yin and yang. We look at the balance of body and mind. Does your energy block somewhere, how is the synergy and strenght in the different phases and is it well distributed in your body? The problem can be found in the conception, implantation or keeping the embryo. We can work together to optimalize your chances, next to the hospital process you are in.
Let me support you in your AID, IUI, IVF or ICSI trajectory, or to optimalize your own cycle. We can use acupuncture, herbal treatment or supplements, life style and dietary advice. Increase the chances on a healthy pregnancy.
Pregnancy and delivery
Congratulations when you are pregnant! Unfortunately pregnancy can bring several unpleasant side-effects. Nausea, lumbago, edema, fatigue, insomnia, depression, headaches, obstipation etc. It can easily lower your sense of happiness, which is a shame of this special time in your life.

Acupuncture often reliefs pain and irregularities without side effects and hormonal additives. In his article (in Dutch) it is explained how TCM approaches pain during menstruation and PMS.
