Fertility & Pregnancy
Acupuncture, Herbs and Dietary changes combined with a Women’s Open Heart and Desire to have a child are a very powerful combination for conception.
We have over 15 year’s of clinical experience and specialized training in Fertility and Pregnancy Care
Each women is on a unique journey towards motherhood. We team up with women at various stages of this journey. Whether you are seeking fertility support to enhance fertility naturally or using acupuncture as an adjunct treatment to increase the success rates of IVF or IUI.
Are you anxious and stressed month after month while trying to conceive?
We understand and are here to support you with your fertility journey.
Our methods involves a close analysis of your individual situation so we can tailor a plan accordingly that includes Acupuncture treatments, Dietary Recommendations, Herbal and Supplement support as well as Stress Management Techniques.
We will also integrate and time your sessions with any Western Medical treatments you receive. We may request additional labs and BBT charts to help evaluate and investigate where you need the most support for conception.
Consistency is the key to effective acupuncture support in fertility.
Treatments will vary in accordance to each phase of your menstrual cycle. Acupuncture increases uterine blood flow to enhance the growth of follicles as they develop into eggs that are mature enough for ovulation, as well as supports healthy uterine lining and embryo implantation.
We treat both Female and Male Fertility at Bridge Wellness & support all families including Single Parents, LGBTQ Couples, Coparents, and Surrogates
Preparation for IVF Cycle and Embryo Transfer
To help support you in what can be an emotionally intense time
we offer off-hours text support.
Ideally we see patients for three months prior to IVF as this is a full egg development cycle. Sometimes this is not possible and we will work with you to come up with the best strategy and support for the cycle timing.
Research is beginning to show how acupuncture can help to increase egg quality, impacting follicles retrieved from IVF cycle, as well as estrogen levels, embryo quality, and increased pregnancy rates in combination with a series of acupuncture treatments.
Pre & Post Transfer Sessions
We offer treatments pre and post transfer for Frozen Embryo Transfers or Fresh Cycles and will try our best to arrange appointments that work with your clinic’s schedule. We also encourage a session during the implantation time frame where our focus is to create an optimal environment for embryo development.
When pregnancy occurs we often recommend acupuncture through the first trimester to support development. The focus of these treatments is to assist implantation and embryo development, increase energy, and reduce stress.

Acupuncture for Male Infertility
Let’s not forget about the Guys…Male factor infertility is an issue in many infertility cases. Herbal medicine and lifestyle changes can help improve low sperm volume and poor sperm motility and morphology.
Even if you are going through an IVF cycle with ICSI (intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection) you want the sperm to be the best quality it can be and limit sperm DNA fragmentation. Herbal medicine and acupuncture can make real changes to the sperm quality that can influence fertility outcome.
