No Clomid, IUI or IVF for my 2nd Pregnancy

by Kristen Z
(N.S., RI)

My name is Kristen. I am a happily married mother of one. That "one" did not come without a lot of "trying" and various treatments of modern medicine. After almost three years, months of clomid, injectable medications and one round of IVF we still were not pregnant. After shedding many tears of disappointment, we miraculously conceived our bundle of joy the month after the failed IVF.

We were so excited about the prospect that we did it on our own, we did not look back. We did not question how or imagine what was different about that month, instead we concentrated on the future. Our healthy little one has been the light of our eye since the day he was born.

We knew we wanted more children, so we went back to the drawing board for number 2. After several months on our own, I thought it might be time to seek the help of a professional. This time around I sought the help of an acupuncturist. Lucky for me, I stumbled upon the fertility acupuncturist, Amelia Hirota at the Center of Balance.

Beyond the actual treatments, she bestowed knowledge and multiple resources concerning general health, diet and education about the hormones associated with the menstrual cycle. She helped me take a second look at myself and things in my life that I could control to help alter my cycle and conceive. In addition, I decided to follow her prescribed regimen of herbal supplements. Well, low and behold, we are pregnant, just 2 months after starting regular treatments with Amelia.
