Becoming a patient of mine for fertility care starts with scheduling a tele-meeting (usually Zoom) in which we will talk about the following things
  • Your health history and journey so far
  • Nutrition assessment and coaching
  • Stress reduction strategies
  • Natural Family Planning coaching
  • Lifestyle information
  • Your questions about acupuncture and whether it could potentially help you, including how to find a good practitioner
  • Anything else you want to ask or talk about

I never make the assumption that people do not know how to eat well or how to make a baby. Or that one person will have the same questions as others. My goal when we meet is to tweak your body of knowledge on a variety of topics related to infertility and miscarriage and to dispel common myths. Commonly asked questions during meetings are “When is the best time for intercourse, I’ve read different things?”, “Do I need to be doing LH testing and temperature charting?”, or “Should I have acupuncture before my embryo transfer?” All questions are welcome. My answers are based on experience and education but if I don’t have an answer, I will help you find one.

Most of us know how to eat well and that regular exercise is highly associated with good health. But some of my patients appreciate help in benchmarking these things and so I ask for a food log for one week before we meet. We will discuss what you do for movement, and what physical activities might be counterproductive to your health goals. Spoiler alert: I am not a big fan of hot yoga.

I do not believe that stress causes infertility or miscarriage, but that infertility and miscarriage cause stress. However, I do believe that conception and healthy pregnancies are influenced by lifestyle issues like nutrition and stress. To that end, I will teach you about Mindful Meditation when we meet.

This takes about 2-2.5 hours, and spouses or partners are part of this session. The fee is $250.

As a physician and former patient who conceived two beautiful children naturally while under Jane’s care, I can attest to the importance and effectiveness of her advice. When so much focus is given to test results and statistics, it’s refreshing to have a book that addresses the true building blocks of fertility.
Tracy Drake, MD.
We are so grateful to you. Your genuine character, guidance, and knowledge always gave us hope and positivity.
Christy and Kevin R.
As a board certified reproductive endocrinology and infertility specialist, I have often referred patients to Jane over the years for her holistic approach to patient care and fertility. I so appreciate her attention to important health topics such as sleep, nutrition, and relationships. I have had patients describe that it feels really good to have someone like Jane on their ‘team.

I also offer acupuncture treatments for:
  • Pre-birth preparation, which is done one time per week starting at week 37 or 38
  • Labor preparation acupuncture which is done at week 40 and 41.
  • Severe nausea (not the kind you are supposed to get)
Although acupuncture is found to be safe and effective in pregnancy, I prefer that all patients check with their doctors or mid-wives about having acupuncture.
Preserving Reproductive Energies Proactively—PREP program.
In addition to helping people who are actively trying to have a baby, I work with people who are not actively trying but are interested in preserving and enhancing their fertility so that at the right time, they may be less likely to experience fertility challenges.

Maybe a baby but not now.

Not quite ready for this yet?

You may be fairly sure you want to start a family of your own, but you are very sure that now is not the right time. We all know the importance of planning our finances, career, or even future vacations. But it is also important to pay attention to the things that will make it easier for you to start a family if and when you are ready, whether that is in one year or ten years. Keeping your options open is the therapeutic goal here.

In my PREP program (Preserve Reproductive Energies Proactively) you can learn about the do’s and don’ts of protecting and enhancing your fertility.

Designed for single women, men, or couples, you will learn about:

  • Lifestyle issues that can affect future fertility
  • Nutrition as a tool to optimize reproductive health
  • How to assess your current fertility status, from an Eastern and Western perspective.
  • Current status of reproductive research that may affect your future family planning choices.

Questions that will be answered are, “Can being on birth control pills for a long time affect my fertility?” and “Are there lab values I should have checked at my yearly exam that relate to future fertility?”

The session takes about 2 hours. The fee is $250 for an individual or a couple.
