South East Radio have asked Siobhan Kehoe to follow the Fertility Journey of 4 couples from the start of their natural fertility journey of herbs and acupuncture with Siobhan in helping them trying to have a baby. Four couples, Ciara and Lorcan, Aoife and Ken, Sarah and Conor and Danielle and Stephen have come forward to bring us the listeners on this journey with them. Some of the problems that these couples have encountered, include 2 couples trying for over 5 years, failed IVF’s, poor semen analysis results, very high FSH level (52) and very low AMH level (0.5), where told donor egg was their only option. Where IVF has failed, where medical tests have shown worrying levels of fertility for the men and women and where pregnancy just won't happen, these couples have now decided to try a more natural route to trying for a baby.

In a new Monthly Series, South East Radio's 'Morning Mix' will follow the journey of “baby-making” guided by Siobhan Kehoe. Siobhan is a Bunclody based Midwife and Nurse who has spent many years gaining valuable experience as a Midwife including in an IVF Fertility Clinic, Early Pregnancy Unit and Maternity Hospitals both here and abroad. It was when Siobhan turned to Traditional Chinese Medicine in 1998 alongside her Midwifery training that she learned a new approach to treating infertility which doesn't involve IVF or complicated invasive medical techniques. However, Siobhan as a midwife does very much recognise Western Medicine and does treat couples planning IVF to give them the optimum chance of success.

Join our couples every month as we hear about their attempts to start a new family, the heartbreak and constant disappointment of their fertility problems. We will hear more about a natural Fertility Journey of ‘self-love, balance, trusting their bodies and Siobhan’s 'going back to basics' and being guided by 'love, not fear' approach. While no couple is ever guaranteed to become pregnant, and it does not happen in every case, Siobhan offers a new hope where hope has faded.
