You have made the emotional, physical and financial commitment to conceive a child, and you deserve to enjoy a calm and relaxing procedure and have the highest possible chance of success.

We believe that the path to parenthood is a journey. Before one embarks on this journey, one might want to consider having some preparation in the form of overall wellness in order to have the most pleasant experience and optimal outcome in this journey. In our effort to focus on patient-centeredness care, we are committed to make Sunfert Wellness an integral part of our fertility programme.

Sunfert invests in ensuring the wellbeing of our fertility patients. By having our own in-house wellness programme, we ensure that our patients receive the highest standard and most reliable holistic support programme while pursing the fertility journey with us. Patients will be free from worrying whether the holistic treatment modal will be in conflict with the western medicine modal. In terms of convenience, patients no longer need to rush or travel in order to receive this holistic treatment as they can have all these done in the comfort of our new Bangsar South facility.

Sunfert Wellness offers a variety of services to complement the fertility treatment. The components of Sunfert Wellness are as follows, and we strive to continue to expand our wellness programme.

MindBody Fertility

This programme is designed to take care of your emotional wellbeing and helps you achieve a positive experience while you are pursuing this fertility journey. It is a non-invasive method that uses our mind to change our behaviour or physiology in order to promote fertility.

You and your partner have been trying to conceive for a significant amount of time without any success. Now that both of you are ready to embark on another fertility journey, the feeling of anxiety and nervousness are very common among couples with fertility challenges and these emotions eventually turn into stress and anxiety, hence making the fertility journey tougher.

Many studies have shown that stress can cause illnesses, which include infertility. Studies by Oxford University and the US National Institutes of Health have shown that stress reduces the likelihood of a woman becoming pregnant, and Dr. Cecilia Pyper urges couples to try relaxation techniques. In a separate research by Dr. Levitas in July 2004 presented to European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology conference in Berlin, it demonstrated that mind/body therapy can double IVF success.

Sunfert is the first fertility centre in Malaysia to integrate this holistic MindBody Fertility into our standard IVF programme and best of all, this programme is complimentary for all our patients undergoing assisted conception treatment (IVF/Frozen Embryo Transfer).

The MindBody Fertility programme consists of 4 individual sessions where you will be counselled and/or coached in learning the techniques of stress relief and promoting relaxation to enhance fertility and conception. This program is specially designed for fertility which transforms fear, stress and frustration into a calm, peaceful, positive attitude towards a viable pregnancy during your IVF cycle. This MindBody connection helps you generate positive biochemical changes that may affect how you feel and handle the stressors of a cycle. These changes will also help you to balance your hormones and to reduce the negative effects that strain your body. Extended post IVF support can be arranged, should the need arises.

This non-invasive MindBody Fertility program is conducted by Mr CT Ong who is currently a Life Coach and the only certified HypnoFertility practitioner in Malaysia.

At Sunfert, we place great importance on your wellbeing and emotional health during your fertility treatment with us.

NutriFertility and AbsoluteWeight

Do you know that weight is one of the factors that can affect fertility? Unhealthy food intake, whether too little or too much, has been seen as a factor causing infertility. If you and/or your partner are overweight or obese, the chances of getting pregnant are lower compared to a person with normal weight. Overweight and obesity are characterized by excess body fat tissues. Excessive body fat mass seems to affect the secretion and metabolism of sex hormones. On the other hand, underweight can also impair the production of essential hormones in the reproductive system.

The best solution is diet and lifestyle modification to improve reproductive functions. Many people neglect the importance of eating healthily before pregnancy.

Proper nutrition enhances your reproductive health. NutriFertility is a one-on-one consultation with a nutritionist that takes a closer look at the patient’s medical history, current diet and infertility treatment plan to construct personalized recommendations to best help achieve optimal health and wellness. In the first session, an in-depth interview entailing health history with detailed questions and answers. The patient can bring in a food log and any medical records to this first session so that the nutritionist can immediately target on their specific needs. Together they will then create an individualized food plan and supplementation to help achieve the patient’s health goals without compromising their lifestyle.

AbsoluteWeight is a collaboration between Sunfert@Bangsar South and Absolute Fitness Centre at Nexus to support patients in their journey to achieve the optimal physical weight for fertility.

AccuFertility

The Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) approach to enhancing fertility is to strengthen the entire system, with special focus on the reproductive system, so that the patient’s body and overall health are at their peak. This increases the chances of achieving and sustaining a healthy pregnancy. This is likened to tilling the soil before planting the seed.

AccuFertility (acupuncture for fertility) uses one of the key Traditional Chinese Medicine approaches which are to promote the free flow of qi in the meridian system to strengthen the overall health and wellbeing of the reproductive system.

Acupuncture can safely be used prior to and concurrently with fertility medications and procedures such as Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) and In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). Studies have shown that acupuncture calms the nervous system, improves blood flow through the pelvic region and may improve pregnancy rates when used in conjunction with IVF.
