My husband and I had been trying to conceive with no success for almost 2 years.  We were on the waiting list for NHS IVF and were both incredibly stressed and upset by the whole situation.  I had read some anecdotal evidence that acupuncture could assist with fertility and having searched google for practitioners in my area was really impressed by Lin’s CV.  From the first appointment, Lin was very professional and reassuring and her passion for and dedication to her work was clear.  After the first appointment, I felt a lot calmer than I had done in some time and over the following weeks noticed a reduction in my stress levels.  After approximately 12 weeks treatment, my husband and I had a positive pregnancy test (without IVF!) and were cautiously delighted.  Lin is very pragmatic in her approach and was supportive but realistic – we would hope that the pregnancy would carry on, but there is never any guarantee.  For the first 13 weeks of pregnancy I continued to receive treatment from Lin to support the pregnancy.  I am now 39 weeks pregnant and looking forward to meeting my baby in the next couple of weeks.  I would (and frequently do!) recommend acupuncture with Lin to anyone who has experienced difficulty or delay in conception.
