One of the most satisfying things I get to do is help women get pregnant using Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine.
Chinese medicine has a long history of doing this in both traditional ways and as a compliment to western medical methods like IUI and IVF. The cost of the western procedures is significant and acupuncture has been proven to increase success rates for very low relative cost. You’re just hedging your bets!

I interned with Dr. Kaleb Montgomery at Fertility Toronto and Urban Wellness. If you live in Toronto and want support with getting pregnant I highly recommend him and his clinics. If you are in the Hamilton, Grimsby, St. Catharines corridor please let me help you.

The Acupuncture Treatment Protocol
Nine acupuncture treatments in the weeks before your transfer
On the day of the transfer, just before or after your transfer
One weekly treatment for the first trimester to prevent miscarriage, and bi-weekly or monthly treatments thereafter. Specific treatments with homework are given for malposition of foetus AKA breech, and there are specific acupuncture protocols and homework for induction. A series of 4 weekly post-partem treatments are essential for recovery.
Herbs may be prescribed as a daily measure.
Patients who commit to weekly fertility treatments pay $88 per treatment instead of the standard $108.
An example of fertility homework:
Before you start, review your life experiences and find some of your moments of joy. Do your best to re-experience the feeling from those moments when you do the following…
The elaborate visualization for a future mom
A representative (grandparent, great-grandparent, etc., you pick) from your husband and your ancestors, together, bring a star or flame or spark to you and it settles in your uterus. You touch your heart with your hand and direct nourishing blood and joy and love to support and grow that little spark into a person. Do this nightly before you fall asleep. And really, any time you like.
