A wonderful email from a client that needed to be shared. It portrays a journey I see over and over with women and their fertility struggles. The self-reflection and beautiful changes that come with these tough times are often the silver lining that begs to be given the spotlight it truly deserves.
The bullet points are my responses.
Thank you for your email and checking in on me. You know me well ;-)
I'm honestly not really sure what I was looking for. But I felt the same way as you did. Something was missing when I left.

I recently posted about 4 clients telling me they were pregnant in 2 days, well, that has increased to 12 women pregnant in the last 2 weeks. Yes, I am astonished and over the moon with the positive energy surging through my practice. I could not be more grateful, elated, and beaming with faith. I surrender at the amazing powers that are at play.

Finally there is a simple way to explain how acupuncture reduces stress. Researchers from Georgetown University prove something everyone that has ever had acupuncture already knows. This can and will now be linked to how acupuncture has beneficial effect with women experiencing infertility.

Today I am grateful. This week marks the true integration of traditional Chinese and modern Western reproductive medicine in Vancouver / Burnaby. My acupuncture clinic within the walls of PCRM (a premier In Vitro Fertilization clinic in BC) is finally opening. It is a beautiful space I will be sharing with a fellow naturopath, urologist, and a high risk obstetrician. I am very excited to see a huge leap forward in the way patients are cared for, particularly in the field of fertility.

When a woman gets pregnant, especially if they have been through any struggle trying to conceive, worry becomes a big part of their life.
Most miscarriages occur within the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. One of the primary known reasons for miscarriage is lack of blood flow to the developing embryo or placenta. Acupuncture has been scientifically proven to increase uterine hemodynamics (blood flow via dilation of uterine arteries), which can reduce the rate of miscarriages or recurrent pregnancy loss.

The following is a story about a woman that suffered with endometriosis, irregular menstrual cycles, & poor general health. She committed to some simple small choices in life, as well as regular acupuncture and herbal therapy to obtain the improvements in her life that she enjoys today. She tells the story best...

Right from the start Suzy and her husband were faced with reproductive challenges. After trying to conceive for quite some time, it was found that her husband did not produce any sperm, a somewhat common condition called azoospermia. After extensive research and counsel, they learned that to have a child of their own, donor sperm would have to be used via artificial insemination. So off to the fertility clinic they went.
