About Us

The Acupuncture Clinic for Fertility, Gynaecology and Pregnancy Care

Conceive is a specialised acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine clinic, based at The Acupuncture Studios in East Dulwich,
Queen's Park and Hackney.


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 fertility 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.

 An increasing number of gynaecologists and midwives work together with acupuncturists to support their treatment, and acupuncture has become the number one complementary therapy to support and enhance IVF.

Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine form the core of our treatment at Conceive. We also offer nutrition, functional medicine, Maya abdominal fertility massage, pregnancy massage, reflexology and fertility coaching (including hypnotherapy, EFT and NLP, to give you a truly integrated service.. 

"I went to Conceive for painful periods. I went back later when I was trying to conceive, and then to prepare myself for labour. Conceive has been a godsend to me! I recommend them for all women's health issues. Their practitioners are extremely knowledgeable and supportive and all are experts in the field."
