The flow charts illustrate your options regarding appointments.  If you already know what you want, e.g. you want to start off with nutrition or acupuncture, then just ask to book in for that.  We always work around you and your needs.  Scroll down below the flow diagrams for more information.

If you are almost ready to start an IVF cycle and are looking for support acupuncture and/or hypnotherapy then please book straight in with the relevant acupuncture or hypnotherapy practitioners.  If you are in any doubt call us on 0131 629 1529 or drop us a quick line for advice.

Otherwise, you need a First Fertility Appointment.  This appointment gives you the opportunity to tell us everything that’s going on and for us to ask all the necessary questions. This means we can formulate the ideal plan for you and help you move forward. Ideally you’d come as a couple but we know that’s not always possible. Although it is helpful to meet both partners, our practitioners are happy to see women on their own. As long as one of you can fill us in on the details of your situation then we can take it from there. If medical treatment is indicated you will be advised on the information to take to your doctor or consultant to discuss the next steps and help you take control of the process.  We base all the information we give you in these sessions on 10 years of experience and sound medical & complementary health knowledge.

We follow up, with your consent, with a letter to your GP or consultant to let them know who we are and how we aim to support you.

Payment

Payment can be made by either cash or card - all major credit and debit cards accepted. 

Cancellation

We understand that sometimes it's not possible to make your appointment and although we have a waiting list, we can't notify people of a space if we have no notice ourselves.  We therefore require 24 hours notice of cancellations - late cancellations (less than 24hours) are charged at the full consultation cost at the discretion of each individual practitioner. 

Skype/Phone Consultations

We regularly undertake Skype consultations from across the UK and abroad.  Please email us on enquiries@thenaturalfertilitycentre.com to arrange.  We take card payment over the phone at the start of the consultation.
