Pregnant in Spite of Suspected Endometriosis
(South Kingstown, RI )
I found Amelia's website when looking for alternatives to surgery for Endometriosis. I had been having irregular periods and menstrual pain for over 8 years but was pushing off the laproscopic surgery until I was sure I had exhausted all other avenues and I was ready to have a baby.
I had tried acupuncture in the past, which helped with the pain and to regulate my periods. I also stopped taking all forms of birth control (pills), which was recommended by my acupuncturist at that time.
I believed that in eight years, I would get pregnant naturally. After stopping the hormones, I had hoped mother nature would take its course when the time was right. I even drastically changed my diet to include no caffeine, virtually no alchohol, and established healthier eating habits. Mostly a diet filled with organic fresh fruits and veggies. Not a pure vegetarian diet though. I still enjoy meat and poultry in moderation. I had also consulted with the Woman to Woman's clinic in Maine and started on their program for endometriosis and hormone imbalance.
Everything I was learning about diet and nutrition and the toxic hormones I had bombarded my system with for so many years was starting to make perfect sense. I knew I was on the right path. But when I turned 38 last summer, I realized that I was going to need additional support. I decided to give it 6 more months. And if I was not pregnant by the New Year than I would schedule the surgery. I consulted with a local nutritionist that summer and met Amelia late in the fall of that same year.
Amelia was comprehensive, knowledgeable, and compassionate about her work. She demonstrated a nice balance between traditional medical technology and alternative Chinese acupuncture methods. Amelia became the missing link that tied it all together for me. I didn't feel as though I had wasted the past eight years, but rather prepared my body well for the next step.
In less than 2 months of working with Amelia, I got pregnant naturally. Funny thing is that my husband and I conceived right around the New Year and found out we were pregnant at my pre-surgery consult that winter. Nothing like cutting it close :-)
I am now 30 weeks along (baby girl)...due at the end of September. My husband and I couldn't be happier. And while, I did a lot of the prep work first, I do not believe I would be pregnant without the dedication and support of Amelia Hirota. She is an amazing practitioner and healer. And I feel so blessed that I found her.
