Each week, Charlotte personalised my acupuncture treatment and explained how acupuncture can improve my chances of pregnancy.
This cycle was a huge success, I produced more eggs than in previous cycles, and had four top grade embryos. Three were frozen at day 5 and I am now 14 weeks pregnant. Charlotte is amazing, a wealth of knowledge and really supportive. I recommend her Blackheath clinic to anyone struggling to conceive. "

Charlotte is so experienced, and I felt in safe hands. She initially focused on my menstrual cycle and ovulation and it worked. My periods became less painful and more regular. I am so happy I conceived naturally and wish I had tried acupuncture sooner. "
