Christina, thank you for always being a source of support – emotionally and physically. It meant so much to me to be able to reach out to you during this journey and know you would always listen. I have been lucky to meet so many great women through the adventure that was bringing my 2nd daughter into this world. Thank you for being a part of it! – R. K.
Thank you so much for your wonderful care and beautiful heart. I am so grateful to have met you. Throughout my journey, I have been so fortunate to have met people like you with such compassionate and generous spirits. I will forever be thankful. I hope your move to Edmonton goes smoothly and that you adjust nicely to your new home and workplace. Edmonton is lucky to have you! – K.
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.
