Having a baby is one of the most beautiful things in life. The fertility journey should be full of joys but unfortunately it can be stressful and frustrating when things don’t turn up the way you expected. Some are doing it for the first time, some are suffering from secondary infertility, some have been trying for a while and would simply like some help. There are also others have been on this road a long time and been through the emotion rollercoaster of IVF.
I know that many couples trying to conceive feel that time is running out. This sense of urgency is common. So, if you have felt anxious or powerless on your conception journey thus far, you are certainly not alone. I understand and I empathise. I have seen all of these types of journeys in the clinic, and what I want you to know is that there is always hope to dare to dream for a child.
From a Chinese Medical perspective, when your body, mind and spirit are healthy and in balance, your natural state is FERTILITY!
