Women’s wellness & Fertility centre

Not every fertility treatment starts with IVF or IUI; maybe it needs some adjustments in the body. References in diets, positive approaches towards body and mind, and exercises can lead to potential results.  

At PSFC, we strive to provide the highest priorities to our visitor’s minds and bodies and start our focus on physical and mental wellness. We understand the importance of a wellness program and turn our focus on that.

Fertility & Nutrition

Did you know? : Nutrition has a strong correlation with fertility.

 To enlarge fertility enhancement, having healthy mental health and wellness leads to a healthy reproductive system. Conversely, having processed and fat-rich foods leads to obesity, heart disease and other health-related problems. Therefore, focusing on what and how we intake our body and maintaining good physical activity for a healthy fertility option is essential. 

Skipping meals disrupts the natural balance of a functional metabolism. In addition, lower nourishment sends a message to the body, which may not be the optimum time to become pregnant.

  • Women who are underweight face reductions in ovulation, and estrogen levels, and increased miscarriage risks
  • Obesity affects menstruation regularly, leading to ovulatory issues and lower responses to fertility drugs.
  • Obese women are at higher risk for miscarriage, gestational diabetes, hypertension, preeclampsia, or toxaemia.
  • PCOS is linked with insulin resistance, which causes hormonal imbalances in the ovaries.
  • Hormonal imbalances can interrupt the normal cycle of ovulation.
  • Being overweight can upset the balance of sex hormones, with or without PCOS.
  • Excess abdominal fat can increase the production of androgen levels, which must be consistent for regular ovulation and conception.
  • Excess body fat can trigger imbalances of the hypothalamus and pituitary hormones in the brain, which are needed for regular ovulation.
  • Increased insulin levels due to either obesity or PCOS disrupt the balance of sex hormones in the ovaries, which can interfere with ovulation.

To prepare your body for a healthy pregnancy, try having a healthy diet habit to boost fertility by providing essential vitamins and minerals. 


  • Fruits and Vegetables: In addition to supplying vitamins, minerals, fibre, and plant-based nutrients or phytochemicals, including more vegetables and fruits, it can help to stay away from higher-calorie foods without making you feel starving.
  • Healthful Proteins: Lean meat, poultry, seafood, eggs, beans, soy foods, nuts, seeds, and reduced-fat dairy foods provide necessary vitamins and minerals. They are more filling than carbohydrates which keeps you full for longer. Remember, women require 50 grams per day of healthy protein, and men need 63 grams.
  • Homemade Foods: Cut your fat intake by eating less outside food and restricting fried or processed foods with lots of butter and oil. Research has proved that the intake of unhealthy trans fats in processed foods increases infertility rates.
  • Whole Grains: Choose whole grain bread, fibre-containing cereals, brown rice, and other unprocessed grains. 


At PSFC, we help you find a good balance with the help of a Nutritionist (by appointment). Find PSFC, a leading women’s wellness and fertility centre, to discuss the importance of wellness for a healthy pregnancy.

Body & Mind calmness

People who are experiencing infertility report the same levels of anxiety and depression as people with cancer, HIV+ status, or heart disease. In addition, stress can lead to many physical issues, including high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity, and diabetes.


Stress plays a significant role in the individual; you must know that having a higher stress rate affects fertility treatments. In addition, research has shown that stress has been the leading cause of patients dropping out of treatment. Individuals with an infertility problem experience too much level of anxiety and depression, the same as people who have cancer, HIV, heart disease, and diabetes.


PSFC, Mental Wellness Clinic and women’s wellness and fertility centre offer the Mind/Body Program for Fertility. It aims to get your life back on track and become the person you were before to build a healthy and wholesome dream of parenthood.


The program will be led by our topmost psychologists, besides Yoga and Meditation advisors, who are experts in infertility and family-building.

Our program can be held on Zoom and offers support for people at any stage of treatment. The program enables participants to take back control of their lives, positively cope with treatments, and learn about lifestyle habits contributing to happiness and good health.


Lifestyle to avoid

Certain behaviours can impact the rate of male/female fertility decline, such as:

Illegal drug use, such as the use of steroids, cocaine, or marijuana.
Alcohol use can lower testosterone levels, cause erectile dysfunction and decrease sperm production.
Smoking contributes to providing lower sperm count.
Obesity can directly impact sperm themselves or cause hormone changes that cause male fertility to decline.
A natural cure calls for avoiding the above substances and improving BMI.

Program facts

 We recommend fertility acupuncture before and right after IUI and IVF treatments to balance mental health and wellness perfectly.

How can acupuncture help with infertility?

  • Enhance the possibility of IVF success by improving diminished ovarian reserve markers.
  • Normalizes menstrual cycle and hormone levels
  • Increases your likelihood of a successful birth by supporting your body’s overall health during pregnancy
  • Improves pregnancy outcomes if you have experienced recurrent pregnancy loss
  • Increases blood flow to the uterus and ovaries, which can improve the quality of eggs and heighten chances of a successful implantation
  • Returns ovulation if you have stopped ovulating due to Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS).

Coordinated treatments 

On the day of your embryo transfer, you will arrive one hour early in PSFC to meet with an IVF Wellness Center acupuncture practitioner before your scheduled procedure.

A 30-minute acupuncture treatment will be performed before the pre-transfer treatment. We focus on using acupuncture points that help dilate the cervix, making inserting embryos easier. Other points help to calm your nervous system, which relaxes the uterus and causes a decrease in cramping and contractions.

Each acupuncture point helps improve blood circulation to the uterus to create a thicker uterine lining. In addition, the treatment is calming and helps optimize uterine receptivity.

After the doctor performs the embryo transfer, visit the Women’s Wellness and Fertility Centre, where your acupuncturist will serve a second acupuncture treatment. Post-transfer treatment focuses on relaxing the nervous system and uses acupuncture points that help circulate additional blood to the uterus. This aids in preventing contractions, nourishing the newly implanted embryo, and making successful implantation more likely.

For 24-48 hours after an IVF or IUI procedure, acupuncture effectively puts a patient’s mind at ease and decreases the spasms and cramping sometimes associated with IVF and IUI procedures. Although we recommend that patients participate in a longer-term fertility acupuncture program, this one-time option is a stand-alone treatment that offers a higher success rate than no acupuncture.
