I first came to see Mo for acupuncture in February 2014 after a personal recommendation by a friend. I instantly felt at ease, Mo was so understanding and extremely knowledgeable. I had Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)and I was ovulating late in my cycle. I had spent the last year recovering from a spinal fusion operation so my body had been through a lot.
My husband and I had decided to try for a family and I was keen to make it a reality as quickly as possible, being aware my PCOS may make it difficult.
Mo talked me through the right foods to eat, vitamins to take and exercises to do etc. She also recommended I start using Fertility friend website to track my daily temperature and monitor my cycles.
I instantly started to get more energy and feel more positive. Within a few months my ovulation day started moving towards a healthier day. Mo also recommended I tried Chinese herbs which also made a great difference to my cycles.
After approximately 8 months my chart was looking great, as it should be to conceive, so Mo recommended seeing my husband and getting some tests run on him to check for any fertility issues.
We visited a fertility clinic and were advised I no longer have PCOS and my husband had issues with his sperm morphology and motility, which in turn were stopping us falling pregnant.
Mo started treating my husband and again worked not only with acupuncture but on his diet and recommended vitamins. After one month we repeated his semen analysis and the results were instantly more positive. After three months we tested again and the results were normal.
In February 2015 we found out we are expecting our first baby. Whilst writing this I am 13 weeks pregnant and have had our first scan. I can truly say that without Mo’s help I’m sure we would have never got here on our own. We had looked at going down the IVF route and luckily due to Mo we didn’t need to. I cannot thank her enough.
I am still seeing Mo to help me through my pregnancy. I only hope everyone has the opportunity to work with Mo on their journey – she is amazing!!!
