You’re ready for a baby – but what if your body isn’t?
Getting pregnant should be easy, as long as you do everything right, right? Bringing another life into this world is one of the most amazing things we are capable of, but it can also be complicated.
Your body may need extra support if…
- You have fibroids, cysts, or hormone imbalances
- Your periods are irregular, so timing is a mystery
- You’re getting older and wonder if you can still get pregnant
- Your tests come back normal, but you’re still not pregnant
- The emotional rollercoaster of trying to conceive is wearing you down
- You’ve done everything “right” but still aren’t pregnant
- You have been able to get pregnant but have had multiple miscarriages
- You want to try conceiving naturally before moving on to other procedures
Acupuncture restores your balance, so your body is primed to get pregnant.
We use a gentle, intuitive approach to help guide you to be able to bring a new life into this world.

How many acupuncture treatments will I need to get pregnant?
This answer varies for each person. If you have a pre-existing health condition, we may need to address that before we address fertility directly. The body is very complex and there are no guarantees. But, you were made to reproduce – your body wants this to happen! Sometimes, your body just needs a little extra guidance, that is where acupuncture comes in to help.
What should I expect at my first fertility acupuncture visit?
We will go through your medical history in detail, then we will assess your fertility history and set up a Personalized Treatment Plan specific to your goals and treatment. I will explain everything in detail and answer any questions you may have. I am here to listen and support you through this journey, as well as help get you results.
When do we start doing acupuncture in the process of trying to have a baby?
The perfect time to start is 3-6 months before you are wanting to start trying to get pregnant. If you are going to be trying any Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART), such as an IUI or IVF, I suggest starting treatment at least 3 months before the procedure to help prepare your body before the procedures. We think of the womb as a ‘garden’ that needs tending before you plant a seed, just as nature does.
Are fertility treatments only for people trying to get pregnant?
Acupuncture can help all parties involved. Acupuncture can also be used to increase sperm counts, sperm quality, and more.
Do I stop coming in when I get pregnant?
No, acupuncture can safely assist you throughout your entire pregnancy and help with various pain, aches, discomfort, nausea/vomiting, carpal tunnel, insomnia, etc., that may arise. It also helps with maintaining a healthy pregnancy, which would be important for those with recurrent miscarriages.
Once you are pregnant, we will re-evaluate your treatment plan to support your body during pregnancy.
Will my insurance pay for fertility acupuncture treatments?
At this time insurance companies do not typically pay for fertility acupuncture sessions. They will pay for most pain-related conditions, we have to verify your benefits to know exactly what pain conditions are covered. Click here to verify your insurance.

We welcome with open hearts and arms, our LGBTQ+ community, single parents undergoing ART, surrogates, egg donors, and everyone else. No matter what your family looks like, we support you equally and we will do everything in our power to make sure you are comfortable and cared for with respect.
