Hi. I live in Edinburgh but am undergoing IVF in Glasgow. My Dr has recommended acupuncture but says it's most effective in their experience when it's done on the day of transfer, usually either side of the actual transfer in the clinic itself.

So I'm looking for recommendations, probably of acupuncturists in Glasgow that I could see on weekends in the run up to FET or of an Edinburgh based person who is willing to travel.

Big ask, I realise but if u know anyone, I'd love to hear.

Cheers

Hi, didn't want your post to go unanswered.

Would really recommend my fertility acupuncturist, but she's in N London which is probably not a lot of use to you in the central belt. Hopefully, someone will come along soon and give you a good local recommendation.

Also wanted to say good luck with the IVF. I've undergone 5 cycles of IVF and used acupuncture each time. I found it very relaxing and positive. It does need to be done v soon after transfer so you need someone v handy for your clinic. We had BFPs 4 out of 5 times and 2 DCs, so it does work in my view

Thanks Linda. I'm getting more and more examples from people that says acupuncture works so fingers crossed.

I realised it was a long shot but worth a try....

Oops sorry, Dee is the fertility advisor. Rachael Forrest is the acupuncturist specialising in fertility but they work together www.rachaelforrest.com
