Fertility - Fertility, Pregnancy, and Postpartum Care

Supporting BOTH female and male fertility is one of my passions. 

I like to say that Chinese Medicine is so good at helping fertility because it helps you because the BEST NEST possible for the little soul to snuggle into and grow. If you are a man, it helps you have the best twigs possible to build the nest! 

Since its beginnings over 2,000 years ago, Chinese Medicine always looked at women as unique from men and women's reproductive health was studied continuously. (I like to joke that the Emperor needed to have babies so a lot of investment was made into studying this!) In all seriousness, Chinese Medicine has vast resources to support fertility. We look at your body in a very unique way from western medicine that allows us to help you transform. 

I also focus on treating men in the fertility process because so often the female partner is out seeking all the care and support --- while, often, the male partner also needs care in order to allow pregnancy. 

As well, because Chinese Medicine supports you overall, if you are implementing assisted reproductive technologies (IUI, IVF), Chinese Medicine allows those interventions greater chance of being succesful. 

Throughout pregnancy and the postpartum time I am here to support your transformations! :)
