Acupuncture ends Brit couple's three-year wait for baby

A woman in Britain has revealed how after waiting three-years to conceive and considering IVF she became pregnant with the help of acupuncture.


London, Oct 12 : A woman in Britain has revealed how after waiting three-years to conceive and considering IVF she became pregnant with the help of acupuncture.

Dawn Paddock, 31, a nurse in gynaecology, had relied on western medicine to help treat a blocked fallopian tube and other problems, but when it did not help she and her husband Chris considered IVF.

But a friend of hers suggested acupuncture, and after three half-hour sessions of the ancient Chinese practice she conceived their long-awaited son, Shay.

Paddock, of Wrexham in North Wales, who described the treatment as "the best 60 pounds she has ever spent", revealed she had been doubtful at first of the process.

"I was sceptical. As a nurse you rely heavily on western medicine, rather than alternative methods. But I thought if nothing else it would help me to relax and distress," the Daily Mail quoted her as saying.

"My husband and I just stared at Shay for what felt like hours after he was born.

"We couldn't believe he was really there. People are sceptical about treatments they cannot explain, but I think of the months we tried to conceive and nothing else worked.

"We would love to have more children and I would try acupuncture again too. But, if I'm not lucky enough to get pregnant again, it won't be the end of the world now we have Shay," she added.

Mike Cummings, of the British Medical Acupuncture Society, said the needle treatment can stimulate nerves around the ovaries and uterus to increase blood flow.
