My daughter and sonare both rainbow babies after loss and I thank you, Christina, for all of your help with preconception and prenatal acupuncture. I’m absolutely convinced it was a big part of calming my nervous system so we could continue these pregnancies.
I always looked forward to my weekly acupuncture sessions in your clinic and also your empathy, care, and compassion was so helpful for dealing with both my mind and body health during these rainbow pregnancies. – C. D.
Hi Christina, although these words cannot fully express my gratitude, I wanted to say thank you for all of the support you have provided me and, in turn, our new little family. I will let you know when I’m able to move around more so I can come by for a visit and you can meet her 🙂
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.
Yesterday’s appointment sure did the trick. We were making our way home and decided to come to the grey nuns as my contractions were coming on strong and were 3 min apart. We were admitted at 4:30 and he was born at 5:10 pm! It was crazy fast considering I left the appointment at 3:30. Thank you for all of your help Catherine!
