It is difficult for me to put the depth of my gratitude for you into words. You have been a guiding light, a grounding presence, & a trusted advisor for me these past two years. You’ve helped me feel more comfortable talking about my experience than I ever thought I’d be! I truly admire how you hold space for all the frustrations that come along with infertility. I feel so grateful to have been in your care. Your knowledge and approach provide such a loving space to receive another life into this world.
I also wanted to say that without your help, support and skills over the past several months there is no way that I could have even thought about attending this or gone through it successfully. I want to thank you with my whole heart, you are key in me having the ability and energy to change my life. Thank you!
I think when us guys hear the words “fertility issue,” we tend to look for ways to fix what’s broken. My wife and I have been through the grinder and every test conceivable (<-yeah it’s a pun) for Western medicine. There was no easy fix for what was quickly starting to look like an “infertile couple.” Our last option was surrogacy but we still needed healthy eggs from my wife and good sperm from me to proceed. We asked around about what we could do to increase our chances of having success with creating healthy embryos.
Acupuncture was mentioned a few times so we gave it a whirl. It really was the best advice anyone gave us. We went for a few months of treatment and, in tandem with a fertility clinic, created several healthy embryos as a result. We now have a little girl that has just turned one. We can’t thank Alda and the rest of the team enough for helping us. They can truly make a difference.
Lastly, I encourage all couples to BOTH go for acupuncture. So often I see women at the fertility clinic on their own. I think it’s important for both partners to be there and go through the experience together.
