“I began acupuncture treatments several years ago at my mother-in-law’s suggestion. She was being treated for chemical sensitivity/allergy issues, and found that she was improving greatly. I was trying to get pregnant and was not ovulating and also had irregular menstrual cycles. The fertility clinic suggested we try invitro fertilization (IVF) and while going through this process, I was getting acupuncture treatments. I got pregnant with my daughter Jennifer (now 3-1/2 years old). When we decided we wanted more children, we didn’t have a choice but to try IVF again, so I told my husband that I wanted to start acupuncture treatments again this time around. We went for that first ultrasound and found out we were having twins! Carolyn and Lindsey are now 5-1/2 months old.
IVF is so stressful, and I believe that acupuncture kept my body in balance throughout the process – physically and emotionally.”
