Fertility Reflexology with Emily Hutchings
Stress is a complex condition that affects most parts of the body in some way and there is some evidence to suggest it can affect fertility. If you are trying to conceive, reflexology can support you and your partner through what can be a very stressful period of your life.
Many of my clients who have received a diagnosis of unexplained fertility have experienced great frustration with no clear way forward. 

Many say that the benefits of reflexology are that it can help you feel as if you are still moving forward. Having reflexology will provide you with relaxation and stress reduction which in itself is beneficial for conception. If you are going into IVF, my sessions will help guide you through and I will work with you each step of the way amending your treatment plan and reflex points to correlate with your cycle and hormonal changes. My sessions will give you a moment of calm. I am there to lean on, offer advice and lend another supportive ear.


Fertility can be such a sensitive subject that it is often not spoken about. It’s something that we all take for granted but many people struggle with it. If you have had problems conceiving then you will know that there can be a huge amount of anxiety around it. Hypnotherapy is an excellent way of reducing your anxiety levels and getting your mind and body into a healthy state, ready for conception. 




" I came to you (Nicola) for fertility support, after 2 years for trying for a baby. We sought medical help via the G.P.  And acupuncture alongside, at the time for both my husband and I. 

For me, I felt our initial conversation was really significant to me, for the first time in my life I opened up about my 'lifestyle'. I believed I was mad because I had to constantly live on Imodium tablets, sometimes taking 3 a day. When you suggested I remove wheat from my diet, initially I was reluctant, however it was my answer. I wasn't mad after all, I conceived within six weeks to a healthy little girl and had an amazing pregnancy.

 2 years 9 months later, we welcomed our second baby into the family and four months ago, we had our third baby. Whilst we had sought help via the medical route, all three conceptions were entirely natural and intervention free and we returned to standard midwifery care during the pregnancies.

I don't know what happened during that time, all I know, I got more than the outcome I desired and still to this day, cannot entertain wheat."


"having acupuncture was a really calming experience and felt like a positive thing to do while undergoing fertility treatment." Project Manager


"Ever since I was a teenager, I’ve had problems with very irregular periods. I could often go for months without having a period. As a teenager, this didn’t worry me, as I had my whole life ahead of me. However, when I reached 30 and got married, my husband and I decided we would like to try to start a family, only to be faced with the problem of horrendously irregular periods. At one point I went for about 3 months without a period, making planning for a baby very difficult.

A friend of mine recommended acupuncture, which I decided might be worth a try, so at the beginning of December, I started seeing an acupuncturist, Nicola Renovich, once a week. I started my treatment in December and became pregnant the following February. Unfortunately, that pregnancy was not to be and I suffered a miscarriage in April. Although disappointed, I decided the best thing to do was to continue my acupuncture and returned for treatment a few weeks after my miscarriage. That month, my menstrual cycle was exactly 28 days long, which has never happened to me before. I know how long it was, because I became pregnant for the second time and that pregnancy has continued successfully, meaning that I am now 29 weeks pregnant.

I have absolutely no doubt that acupuncture contributed directly to my getting pregnant in a very short period of time and would recommend it to anyone!
