Fertility Nurses Australia, a subsidiary of The Fertility Society of Australia, invited Delia McCarthy who manages the Acupuncture IVF Support clinics to give a presentation to their annual education meeting, describing the role and uses of Chinese Medicine in the treatment of infertility.


Nurses working with IVF patients have noticed that more and more of them are having acupuncture. What was meant to be a 45 minute talk on how acupuncture fits in with IVF, went for more than 2 hours as the nurses showed such interest and quizzed Delia about how acupuncture can help their patients.
