Treatment Type: Fertility Acupuncture

Nuala O

After trying for a second baby for over a year I went to see Ali following a friend’s recommendation. Ali was very thorough from the get go, wanting to ensure she understood everything that was happening from a body and a life point of view. After approx six months of trying to regulate my periods and reduce my stress levels, we got to the stage where they were regular and operating how they should be. However, we knew falling pregnant naturally would be a challenge as I have a very low AMH.

Myself and my husband knew that if we wanted to do IVF we would have to do it as quickly as possible because we knew the success rate would always be on the low side due to my egg quantity. We decided to go for IVF as soon as the first lockdown was lifted. I visited Ali once a week in the three months leading up to IVF to ensure my body was ready. Ali was fabulous during the IVF process, a constant positive attitude but also so flexible. One example of this is on implantation day I had to be at the clinic super early. Ali was more than happy to see me ahead of her clinic times to ensure I could have the treatment. I have no doubt that Ali’s nature and flexibility helped our IVF process.
I’m very pleased to say that despite only collecting three eggs and two being implanted, we now have a healthy baby girl who was born last week.
I honestly couldn’t recommend Ali enough. Her treatment, her personality, her calming nature, her positive mindset – I truly believe all of this helped me be in the right frame of mind for IVF and for having our little girl.
Ali – we will forever be grateful for you, your way of being, your calming influence and your understanding

I went to see Aliya initially as my periods had stopped and I had been diagnosed with PCOS. I also wanted to start trying for a baby in the next few monthsI found my first session with Aliya so enlightening. She is so easy to talk to, intuitive and supportive. After a couple of acupuncture sessions my period returned. I fell pregnant the following month and am expecting my first baby in June. I fully believe that this was due to my sessions with Aliya, which I have continued through my pregnancy as I have found such a benefit from acupuncture. I have since recommended Aliya to a number of my friends and family.

Came to see Ali for 3 months before my current IVF cycle and found it to help so much, made me a lot more relaxed during the whole process! Now currently 20 weeks and have just gone back today for another treatment for headaches. Feel better already 🙂

We cannot recommend Aliya enough! She is warm, attentive and so supportive as a therapist. She really cares about all of her patients and tries everything she can to help them on their journey. Acupuncture was recommended to me after an ectopic pregnancy, followed quickly by two miscarriages. It was such a difficult time in our lives. I hadn’t really done anything like that before, but was ready to try something new. Aliya really helped to keep me calm and give us hope! She talked to me before every session and went on to chat to my Husband who always supported me by coming to the waiting room. The Acupuncture was gentle and gave us a sense of relief after each session – it really helped to keep us going! I continued to see Aliya all the way through my pregnancy, just before having our beautiful baby girl. I feel like she was there by my side, every step of the way. I truly believe Aliya helped to make our dreams come true!

I have been seeing Aliya for acupuncture for about four years. She helped me to get over the very painful experience of an ectopic pregnancy and to go on to conceive successfully soon afterwards. I now have two healthy children – one aged two years, and one aged two months. I had acupuncture throughout both pregnancies and wouldn’t have done it any other way. In the past Aliya has also given me treatments to get on top of migraines and to support my emotional wellbeing as I grieved for the loss of my father. She has a very personable approach to treatments, explaining the points in simple terms, and is very easy to talk to. I highly recommend a visit to see her!

I had a number of sessions with Ali to support me through a fertility process. Ali was always so kind and compassionate and I found the sessions really relaxing during a difficult time.

I have been seeing Ali for over 5 years. She is absolutely Wonderful and I cannot recommend her highly enough! She takes her time to listen, often asking questions about issues you never think to mention…Then explains how everything is connected. I started seeing Ali when preparing for a second pregnancy at the age of 45. The IVF worked first time, despite a history of five previous miscarriages!She is a wonderful gift to the world and I would urge anybody reading this and struggling with fertility, to please go along, listen and believe! Thank you Ali, see you soon xx.

Ali is amazing and she absolutely helped me with my fertility struggles. Whilst I needed IVF, I truly believe Ali gave me the best possible shot and we were pregnant with our first IVF cycle. My baby girl is very precious and Ali played a huge part in getting us there. Ellie.

Everytime I’d heard about acupuncture I presumed it was for help with muscle or tissue injuries, aches and pains. I’d never considered it to help with fertility. Struggling to conceive I thought there was no harm in trying it. Aliya was not only very thorough in her treatment but also suggested life changes to help. After a few sessions I immediately felt more energised, my monthly cycle changed just how Aliya said it would. I saw many positive changes. The cycle Aliya predicted was the one did actually work and I gave birth to a healthy baby boy in Nov 18. I was overjoyed ! She is very good at her job and has a lot of experience. I definitely recommend Aliya for acupuncture, not only to help with fertility issues, but also to help to balance your hormones and help you to feel better. I will for sure be using her services again! .

I started to see Ali last year after not having had a period for over seven months. This was following stopping the contraceptive pill after 10 years of taking it. After going to my doctors and also a gynecologist and not being able to find any reasons as to why I did not have a period I decided to give acupuncture a go.

I have to say that I have thoroughly enjoyed every treatment and found Ali to be extremely supportive. 10 months later I am pregnant and seeing Ali on a regular basis and I plan on carrying on with acupuncture once the baby comes. I would definitely recommend Ali to anyone trying to get their cycles back on track and/or wanting to get pregnant. She has such a lovely calming energy, I always look forward to my next treatment.
