Pregnancy and IVF

”My husband and I were struggling to get pregnant. We were both in our 30s, but really didn’t want to pursue fertility treatments. We decided to try acupuncture and started seeing Emily. Emily instantly identified that my “chi”, or blood flow was not ideal to become pregnant and recommended some dietary changes and Chinese herbs. Unfortunately, we did end up needing to go through fertility treatments. I used acupuncture in conjunction with IVF and thankfully we were pregnant after the first try. I continued acupuncture throughout the pregnancy. Acupuncture was my time to focus on myself and my baby. At 36 weeks, the baby was breach. Emily was able to use points to help rotate baby into position. By my next doctor’s appointment, baby had turned! I also struggled with carpal tunnel and swelling at the end of my pregnancy.  Emily was able to use points to help minimize my discomfort. She was very supportive, caring and understanding throughout my entire pregnancy and even altered her schedule to fit me into both private and community sessions. Luckily, we were blessed with a happy and healthy baby girl a year ago! I would highly recommend Emily for those struggling with fertility issues!” –A.M.
