Infertility is when a couple cannot get pregnant (conceive) despite having regular unprotected sex. Around 1 in 7 couples may have difficulty conceiving.

About 84% of couples will conceive naturally within a year if they have regular unprotected sex (every 2 or 3 days). For couples who have been trying to conceive for more than 3 years without success, the likelihood of getting pregnant naturally within the next year is 1 in 4, or less.

There are 2 types of infertility:

  • primary infertility – where someone who’s never conceived a child in the past has difficulty conceiving
  • secondary infertility – where someone has had 1 or more pregnancies in the past, but is having difficulty conceiving again

Through reflexology treatment, it is possible to obtain very good results, helping couples that are having problems with conceiving.  
For one of my cases, a couple later concieved a beautiful baby, Viola. Even before being born, she was showing us her little foot in the scan. It seemed almost like the baby’s way to say thank you for treatments her mum received.
