The Clinic

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 gynaecological disorders, male and female infertility, miscarriage, IVF support, pregnancy care 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 medical history, test results, menstrual patterns, BBT, environmental toxins, nutritional, structural and emotional health. Comprehensive preconceptual advice is given accordingly, and a unique treatment programme can be drawn up to address each patient's individual needs.  

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. 

"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."
