One of the focuses of Montclair Acupuncture is infertility. Acupuncture has many benefits for patients trying to conceive:
- Improved blood flow to the uterus
- Regulation of ovulation
- Thickening of the endometrium lining
- Improvement of egg quality
- Balancing of the hormonal system
- Lowering of the FSH or E2
- Decreasing the chances of miscarriage
- Balancing of the immune system
- Decreasing stress
- Increasing energy
- Increasing the success rate of IVF and IUI
- Increase sperm count and sperm motility
Stress relief is also a big part of being able to conceive.
Maria worked as an acupuncturist at RMA of New Jersey for two years and is an associate of the NJ Center for Acupuncture and Infertility. IVF and IUI acupuncture support treatments are offered during off-hours in conjunction with transfers, retrievals, and insemination. Chinese supplements that are beneficial for fertility for both men and women may also be prescribed and dietary and lifestyle changes are often recommended.
We recommend getting acupuncture during the first 13 weeks during pregnancy to support the fetus, alleviate back pain and nausea, mood swings, tiredness, and stress. Acupuncture and supplements can also be used to recover after giving birth.
I sought out Maria’s help after many failed IVF’s. My infertility was due to poor egg quality and a thin uterine lining. With Maria’s personalized care, skill and dedication, I was able to conceive naturally and my daughter was born two years later. After her birth I began suffering from repeat pregnancy loss. My reproductive doctor gave me little hope of conceiving again. I immediately made an appointment with Maria who had every belief that I could have a healthy pregnancy. Once again with Maria’s help I am currently expecting baby #2. I couldn’t recommend her more highly.
