5.0 out of 5
I am so glad I decided to go for acupuncture and so grateful to Ali. 

We had been trying for a baby for almost 4 years and after 6 early losses, we decided to go for IVF. I had heard that acupuncture can help so I thought I’d give it a go. 
After the first appointment I was pretty shocked at how I felt. I can only describe it as a complete natural high, a bit like I’d had 2 large glasses of wine! I had never felt so relaxed. 
My cycles were generally very short, usually only 24 days. Also I ovulated very late such as day 21. I found out this is called a “short luteal phase”. So a fertilised egg would not be able to implant as the womb lining would not have had time to prepare for it efficiently. 
Well, after seeing Ali for only 3 sessions every other week, my cycle became textbook 28 days long. And each month I was ovulating earlier. By month 3 I ovulated on day 13! I could not believe it. Even during 6 cycles of Clomid the earliest I ovulated was day 16. 
On that third month I did a pregnancy test as I just had a feeling. It was positive & so were the next 5! 
I have had 2 early scans now & we have seen the babies heartbeat and all is going really well. We are so over the moon. Our IVF was meant to begin 3  weeks later, but it looks like we won’t need it after all. 
I can highly recommend Ali, acupuncture has made such a difference to our lives. I also sleep better and I feel I’m a lot more positive than I used to be.
