Acupuncture for Fertility

The road to conceiving a baby is not always easy.  It is often fraught with obstacles, confusion and heartache along the way.  As a holistic system that cultivates deep healing and balance from the inside out, acupuncture can help.  We work with couples along the wide spectrum of fertility enhancement, from acupuncture only to treatment with fertility medications like Clomid, to In-vitro Fertilization (IVF), Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET) and Donor Embryo Transfer (DET).  At BCA, it is our mission to take the word “infertility” out of our vocabulary and focus on balanced nourishment of our bodies.  When we focus on nourishing ourselves, we find that a pregnancy often happens as a wonderful “side effect” creating balance within the natural rhythms of life.
