Holistic Fertility Care
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.
