Around half of the couples we see at the clinic are hoping to be able to conceive naturally. Each patient’s situation can vary greatly – some are looking to conceive their first child, others may be having difficulty adding to their family. Some may have started trying recently while others may have tried a number of options already.
While all our patients are very different, they all have the same desire – to successfully create a healthy baby. And this is where we can help.
We do everything we can to understand and support you on your road to having a baby.
‘Traditional Chinese Medicine holds that a woman’s body must
be gently nourished and encouraged to bear fruit.’

Here’s a quick introduction to what we do:
To understand where improvements can be made in your body we begin by taking a detailed look at your menstrual cycle. Knowing all about your cycle, including the length and regularity, your emotions at this time and if you have any pain during your cycle will help us to gain a clear picture of what is going on so we can prescribe a treatment plan that is right for you. If you have already had a Western Medicine diagnosis we can also use your blood test results or scan results to help with our diagnosis and treatment plan.
We can help you to reduce the detrimental effects of a number of conditions to help you to have a baby naturally. These include:
• Unexplained infertility
• Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
• Immunological fertility
For men we look at your overall health and any lifestyle factors that could be impacting on the quality of your sperm production.
"I first visited The Jade Centre when trying to conceive. I have always known that I would find it difficult as I was diagnosed with PCOS at the age of 19 and very rarely had periods (one every 12 – 24 months!). I started having weekly acupuncture and Chinese herbs. Within three months I had my first period in nearly two years. Within 5 months I had established an irregular cycle of between 6-9 weeks. A few months later I was due to see a fertility specialist. Two days before the appointment I discovered I was pregnant with my daughter, who is now 11 months old. I will be eternally grateful to Louise for her help in making this happen."
