What To Expect on Your First Appointment
At the Hatfield Practice, you’re at liberty to expect the best. The first fertilityAcupuncture appointment at the Hatfield Practice will involve a full detailed consultation. This is to understand your needs clearly and find out about your main concerns and assess your overall past medical / health history.

Any information about the medication/supplements you are taking will be beneficial, as well as any recent test results.
After the detailed consultation, there will be time for treatment and further questions. From our experience, it’s best to wear loose clothing for your Acupuncture treatment and really, it is best not to eat a large meal or drink alcohol / strong coffee!! Just before your treatment. We will do our best to make you feel at home and relax; that’s what we do best.
