Fertility Treatments

I am passionate about treating patients with infertility, whatever the diagnosis or reason. I can most likely assist with my various healing modalities. There is something special about helping someone achieve this ultimate gift of falling pregnant.

I first try to assist patients to fall pregnant naturally. If needed, I can also assist before, during and after western medical assisted reproductive technology. This includes things like in vitro fertilization-embryo transfer (IVF-ET), gamete intrafallopian transfer (GIFT), zygote intrafallopian transfer (ZIFT), frozen embryo transfer (FET), intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), intrauterine Insemination (IUI), surrogacy and donor eggs.


I treat males and females for infertility. In males I can assist with things like low, abnormal or poor quality sperm. In females I can assist with things like hormone balancing, ovulation, poor quality eggs and thin uterine lining. In both parties overall wellness and stress reduction are addressed. I prefer to treat both parties, as it increases the chances of falling pregnant sooner and helps me identify and address the imbalances.

I always aim to assist patients to fall pregnant naturally, but it is not always possible to only rely on the treatments I use in my clinic. I have thorough knowledge of how western medicine treats infertility. I work with infertility specialists to bring those patients the best of both worlds. By adding my various modalities to their western treatments, it increases their chances of falling pregnant quicker, as well as having a healthy pregnancy and baby.


Another healthy pregnancy testimonial:

I decided to see Dr. Petra after about 2 years of struggling to get pregnant. I went to her in May 2013. After a lengthy, thorough consultation and blood tests, we started fertility treatment to get my hormones balanced. This consisted of medication and bi-weekly acupuncture sessions. This treatment lasted for about 6 months. During this time I found Dr. Petra to be very professional, knowledgeable, attentive and empathetic. I thoroughly enjoyed the acupuncture sessions as she created a very inviting and relaxing atmosphere which put me at ease and helped me de-stress.

By November 2013 Dr. Petra sent me for some more blood tests to see what my hormone levels and balance looked like. She informed me that it had improved significantly. She then referred me back to my gynecologist as she felt that I might have something more serious.

It was determined that I did not ovulate. 4 Months after starting fertility treatment with the gynecologist, I fell pregnant. The gynecologist was quite surprised that I fell pregnant so quickly, as this is normally not the case for someone in my position.

I fully believe that this is due to the outstanding treatment that I received from Dr. Petra which assisted greatly in correcting my hormone balance. During my pregnancy and after giving birth, she regularly contacted me to find out how I was doing and to give some advice.

The treatment I received from Dr. Petra was outstanding. She improved my health and chances to get pregnant significantly and always made me feel at ease, a combination which in my experience is quite scarce in health professionals today. I would gladly recommend her to anyone and wish her much success in her future endeavors –
