Pregnant Naturally After Failed IVF Cycles

I got pregnant naturally after failed IVF cycles. My miracle babies came after I started seeing Amelia at the lowest part of my life. My husband and I started trying to conceive for a year with no success. I started being treated at Women & Infants for infertility. I discovered I had a blocked fallopian tube. I had the tube remove shortly after.

I did get pregnant, but it ended up as a ruptered etopic (7 weeks into preg). My doctor told me to take some time to recover and my next option would be IVF. I couldn't wait to have the okay to go back to the infertility office. I was determined that IVF was for me. I had an IVF cycle with the end result a miscarriage (6 weeks into pregnancy).

I went back for another IVF cycle, and it ended in a corneal ectopic (7 weeks into pregnancy). By this time years of trying had gone by and my husband and I were basically living separate lives. We had even considered a divorce. My husband was against going back to Women & Infants and wanted to stop trying for a baby unless it was natural.

So with nothing to loose I Googled acupuncture and infertility. I had heard acupuncture was good for many things and wanted to see what was out there. Amelia Hirota popped up and I took a deep breath and called. It was late on a Friday night and expected to leave a message, but Amelia answered. And her answering changed my life forever.

I scheduled an appointment with her for the following week. I took in all she had to offer me on advise. What herbs to take, what food to eat, take my temperature... And to be honest it was more work on my part than an IVF cycle! But after 2 months of undergoing her treatment I conceived my daughter. It was truly a miracle. I saw Amelia throughout my pregnancy and she was born beautiful and healthy at 6 lbs 3 oz.

A few months after she was born I returned to Amelia and I conceived my son. He was also a beautiful healthy baby 6 lbs 13 oz. They are only 13 months apart. My husband and I are stronger than ever of course, considering infertility is what drove us apart.

Tears come to my eyes with even the thought of Amelia. She did more than just help me get pregnant at one point in my life, she changed my life and she will always be in my heart.
