Fertility Support

Whether you are trying to conceive naturally or going through an assisted reproductive technique (ART), at Family Acupuncture and Wellness we have the knowledge and expertise to support you on your path to achieving a healthy pregnancy.

Just as a gardener must till and enrich the soil before planting a seed, we believe in optimizing your health before conception.  Ideally, couples should begin weekly treatments approximately three months before trying to conceive.  It takes approximately 150 days for a follicle to mature and 75 days for sperm generation.  By commencing treatment at the beginning of this maturation period we can ensure that the eggs and sperm are the best quality that they can be for conception. Through the use of acupuncture, Maya abdominal therapy and Chinese herbs we will prepare your body for a healthy pregnancy and treat the underlying cause when conception is difficult.

If you are having trouble conceiving, we can help you identify your obstacles and work with you to find a solution.  After your initial appointment, we will create a plan that incorporates treatment frequency, Chinese herbs, supplementation, dietary advice and lifestyle recommendations.

If you are already receiving conventional treatments to assist with conception, we can support and enhance your treatment protocols.  Acupuncture can decrease negative side-effects of the medications as well as reduce stress and anxiety along the way.  We are familiar with the current techniques and medications used in the western treatment of fertility, and can communicate effectively with your healthcare providers to help you and your partner achieve the best possible outcome.
