At Life + Lemons, we honour the journey of each of our fertility patients’. Be it a process you’re embarking on with a partner, solo or with a donor we empathise and respect how difficult this decision or process can be.
Acupuncturist and clinic director, Kimberley Shepherd, has gained a wealth of experience in acupuncture and IVF throughout her career, and has extensive knowledge of IVF protocols, medications and expectations.
