Conceive - The Acupuncture Clinic for Fertility, Gynaecology and Pregnancy Care is an acupuncture clinic in East Dulwich. Established in 2007 by acupuncturist and Chinese herbalist, Claire Battersby, it specialises in male and female infertility, miscarriage, IVF support, pregnancy care, gynaecological disorders and all aspects of women's health.
We have an expert team of dedicated acupuncturists at Conceive, who are here to support you on your fertility journey, and throughout your pregnancy, to birth. We are able to establish the appropriate treatment for you, taking into account lifestyle, medical history, Western medical test results, menstrual patterns, Body Basal Temperature, environmental toxins, nutritional, structural and emotional health. Comprehensive preconception advice is given accordingly, and a unique treatment programme can be drawn up to address each patient's individual needs. Where necessary, we can also arrange for blood tests and semen analysis.
An increasing number of gynaecologist and midwives work together with acupuncturist to support their treatment, and acupuncture has become the number one complimentary therapy to support and enhance IVF.
Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine form the core of our treatment at Conceive. However, we also offer Nutrition, Functional Medicine and Maya Abdominal Fertility Massage to provide a truly integrated service.
