Your Clinician at LIV has extensive experience with Women's Health and Reproduction; As the mother of four children she has had first-hand
knowledge of the following:
health, Pregnancy & Pregnancy-Related Conditions, Natural Childbirth, Home-Birth and Midwifery, Post-partum Health,
Breastfeeding and Post-partum Weight Loss, Infant Health
As a Practitioner
for 6+ years she has supported inumerable successful pregnancies and works closely with every woman who comes
into her practice for Fertility support- as every woman is different and her challenges unique. A personal, kind, gentle
and invested approach is our goal with the flexibility to work with your Western Medical plan for fertility to optimize their
results or on our own; very often on a 'break' from fertility cycles with injectible hormones... from IUI to frozen
Embryo transfer to Donor Egg transfer - we are here to monitor and support from an infomed TCM perspective.
A Women's body goes through many cycles throughout her lifetime;
puberty, pregnancy, menopause with hundreds of cycles of menstruation in between.
The potential for Chinese Medicine to improve women's health
has, more recently, become openly recognized and supported by Western Medical fertility centers and in clinical research.
A stark departure from Western Medicine's approach is Chinese Medicine's nonuse of
artifical hormone control over the most natural and important events in a woman's
reproductive life and overall health. Chinese Medicine, when applied properly, can significantly influence all phases
of Female Reprodction and (Male Factor) infertilty.
Conception and Infertility
The extent of research and clinical evidence that
speaks to Acupuncture's
positive influence on Pregnancy Outcomes is far too great to detail
here - Research show that some use TCM to
optimize preconception health by first regulating
their own natural ovulation and menstrual cycle; Some are using TCM to enhance natural fertility chances;
And still others are using TCM to
prepare themselves for Assisted Reproductive Technologies (IUI or IVF) both physically and emotionally. Our goal
is to find the deficit(s) leadng to your infertility and make corrections to optimize results with or without ART.
