...some of the babies we helped bring into the world
The care that I received at the Lotus Center has been amazing. My husband and I had been trying to conceive for close to 2 years. I had been dealing with a chronic bacterial infection that was probably effecting my ability to get pregnant. Their holistic approach to first dealing with getting my infections under control, and then helping maintain a healthy pregnancy after a history of miscarriages was phenomenal. They are so wise and helpful and really care about their patients.

Since I started acupuncture I've had three children which I totally attribute it to receiving acupuncture here. The first time I came here, it was a last resort because I had never thought much of eastern medicine. But being faced with a decision to start aggressively undergoing fertility treatment or try something more natural, I opted to give acupuncture a try. After 3 months, I conceived. It is almost magical - even though it's science based, it feels like it transcends the ordinary in some way that I can't quite put my finger on. After a few miscarriages when trying for our second child (while not having acupuncture) I decided to go back and within the first month of prescribing herbs, changing diet, and doing acupuncture, I ended up conceiving twins... naturally. So, I wholeheartedly recommend the Lotus Center for fertility, and because it helped me understand my health and feel better.

I started going to LCIM when I couldn't conceive and was going through IVF (numerous times). Although I had never tried alternative medicine before, from the very first visit, Wendy made me firm believer in what she was trained in. I often called it "magic" and she was quick to remind me that what we eat, how we feel and our ailments are obviously all connected and that's why acupuncture works. Wendy put me on a nutritional plan that ended up changing up body in a very short time and (I'm convinced) was the reason I was able to conceive after 3 years. They not only saw me through my pregnancies, but went the extra 1000 miles when my daughter was born with a Congential Heart Defect. Having their support and help during the time before her heart surgery helped me to know I was doing everything I could to help my little girl.

Trying to get pregnant at any age can be difficult for many people but for myself at age 44 it proved to be daunting and nearly impossible (so I was told). I can only say that without the help and expertise of the staff at LCIM, I would not be holding my baby daughter in my arms today. She is truly a miracle by all standards. She was conceived via a second round of IVF. After starting acupuncture treatments with Wendy before my second IVF procedure, my total egg production went from 13 to 22 and more importantly my viable 8 celled embryos more than doubled. I truly believe that a combination of genetics, acupuncture and the very skilled and competent doctors I had are the reason I have such a beautiful daughter today. She defied the odds. My advice to older mothers is please do not give up and definitely try acupuncture as a way to increase your chances of conceiving. I know it helped me and my daughter is living proof that it works.
