About the Clinic
The acupuncture IVF support clinics in Sydney and Melbourne and the Central Coast are the first and only of their kind in Australia. The first clinic was established in 2008 in response to evidence from repeated clinical trial results which demonstrate the benefits of acupuncture to IVF patients in terms of increased pregnancy and live birth rates. Five years on and our data indicates that the approach to treatment with acupuncture that has been pioneered in these clinics is improving odds of success significantly for women especially those whose expected success rate with IVF is very low.
Additionally we have responded to patient's requests and developed programmes combining Chinese herbs and acupuncture for couples preparating to conceive, or dealing with PCOS or endometriosis.
For those patients already doing IVF, our clinics meet your unique requirements for high quality and predictable acupuncture support to be readily available and integrated into your IVF programme.
The acupuncture IVF support clinic also provides a useful service to acupuncturists who would like their patients to receive acupuncture at particular times and on particular days of their IVF cycle but they are unable to provide it in their own clinic, or their clinic is too far distant from the IVF clinic.
The Acupuncture IVF Support clinics in Sydney city and East Melbourne have appointments available for short notice bookings 6 or 7 days a week and in Sydney Maroubra and Westmead 4 days a week.
The Clinical Director of the acupuncture IVF support clinic, Jane Lyttleton is well known in Australia and abroad for her contribution to Chinese medicine particularly in the area of infertility. Jane has studied, practiced, taught and written about Chinese medicine and womens health for 30 years, and has worked with IVF patients and their doctors for 20 years. Her text on “Treatment of Infertility with Chinese Medicine” published by Elsevier remains the seminal work in this area and is used by TCM practitioners who see patients with infertility.
She personally chooses, trains and mentors the practitioners who work with her in the Sydney acupuncture IVF support clinics. A high standard of training and skill in the field of reproductive medicine is demanded of these dedicated specialists.
