Fertility

Even miracles take a little time

~ Fairy Godmother, Cinderella

FERTILITY PROGRAM 

The fertility program at The Wholesome Lotus takes into account every aspect of the individual as well as the couple as a unit. Many times both partners cannot come in and the program is geared to the individual. The program assesses each individual with their unique needs and encompasses a holistic approach to fertility wellness. The program includes:

A complete assessment from a TCM perspective as well as reading labs to figure out the needs of each patient

IVF SUPPORT

Acupuncture works very well in supporting IVF treatments. It is recommended to begin a few months before the IVF cycles in order prepare the body for optimal IVF outcome. Treatments are done to improve hormonal balance, egg quality, and for stress reduction during a woman’s IVF treatment protocol.

ACUPUNCTURE AT TIME OF TRANSFER

I use a scientifically studied protocol on site before and after transfers for my patients. Contact me for more information.

PREGNANCY SUPPORT

When a woman does get pregnant during the fertility program, the program moves into it’s second phase which is to support the pregnancy. Pregnancy requires a lot of energy and reserves with which acupuncture can greatly accommodate. Acupuncture can also alleviate many symptoms associated with early pregnancy. I incorporate a protocol after 37 weeks to prepare for labor. I also treat common symptoms associated with late pregnancy such as lower back pain and swelling. Breech presentation can also be treated with acupuncture, though I do recommend starting as soon as possible.
