The Natural Fertility Clinic provides healthcare and support to people who wish to become parents. The primary method of care is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine’s use of acupuncture and herbal medicine, supported by Western medical diagnostic techniques and nutrition advice.
The Natural Fertility Clinic was founded by Sharon Martin (she/her), a Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncturist and Herbalist who has specialised in supporting people with fertility and gynaecological issues for over twenty years. We have come together with The Acu Hub to create a space that encompasses our shared values:
SUPPORTING EVERY BODY
The Natural Fertility Clinic is committed to the following points of principle:
Excellence of care
We love all things fertility - our spare time is spent focused on professional development in this area. We’re always researching and talking about the latest developments in IVF procedures, fertility supplements, chinese herbs, periods, sperm, cervical mucous, labour and birth. We support every birthing body, and all permutations of the people it takes to make a family.
we love our many LGBTQIA+ clients, sole parents, surrogates, people that need donor sperm, eggs or embryos. There are so many ways to create a family and we’re honoured to support you on your unique journey. We recognise the unique journey taken by same-sex couples and the complex and sometimes traumatic journey that fertility work can represent to trans and non-binary people.
we understand through our own experiences and through supporting hundreds of fertility focused clients, that the journey can be challenging and emotional. We are a safe space to share the myriad of feelings that arise during the process and be 100% supported. We have experienced and acknowledge the unique challenges of medical racism . We’re with you.
we love people and creating relationships, and this is another reason that we have come together as a team. Our vision is to create a team of like-minded people to support you. We are committed to having the best team and the best people that collectively come together to live and breathe these values in service of you.
We aim to treat people fairly and to recognise and respond to their individual needs, experiences and aspirations. Firmly believing that human diversity strengthens and enriches our society, The Natural Fertility Clinic strives to provide healthcare without discrimination and with open-hearted, skilled support.
Who We Are
Sharon Martin is our lead practitioner, who has been in medicine since 1996. She holds qualifications both in the UK and internationally and has practiced with leading gynaecologists and consultants worldwide.
Having obtained her Lic Ac from the prestigious College of Integrated Chinese Medicine, she now holds her Honours and Masters degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine, including Post Graduate qualifications in Chinese Herbal Medicine.
She lectures worldwide on female and male fertility, presenting the research and science based evidence of the effectiveness of Chinese Medicine in fertility, and was nominated as the Ambassador for SuWen Herbs in the UK.
Sharon retrained in Traditional Chinese Medicine due to her own fertility and her struggle with Endometriosis. After numerous surgeries, cancer drugs and 'unexplained' premature menopause at 24 years old, she tried acupuncture and herbs. As they say - the rest is history!
