How many treatments will it take to become pregnant?

"After 2 years of trying to conceive, it was recommended by a fertility specialist that I move onto IVF. However, I believed that I needed to exhaust all natural options to conceive first. Upon meeting Adrienne, I felt supported, understood by her and hopeful that I would conceive. She taught me how to decrease my stress and anxiety levels, adjust my diet, to include herbal teas and monitor my cycle. After four months, I became pregnant. Although I miscarried my first baby, Adrienne was beyond supportive for both my physical and emotional well being as I recovered. Adrienne got my body back on track by adjusting my diet and herbal teas, and within one month, I was pregnant again. I continued acupuncture throughout the first trimester. My husband and I are expecting our first child Christmas Eve. The process of becoming pregnant was frustrating and disappointing, but with Adrienne's expertise and support, I was able to conceive naturally!" - Diane C
"I started seeing Adrienne due to probable infertility. I had started charting my cycles and noticed I had a very short luteal phase making it very difficult for me to conceive. After 5 weeks of treatment, I was pregnant. I continued treatment through my first trimester and delivered a happy, healthy baby girl at 41 weeks. I had a great experience with Adrienne and would (and have!) recommend her to anyone." - Courtney. H
"I have always had very irregular periods. After starting treatments and taking herbal teas, my periods were regular! I could not believe it. When my husband and I decided we were ready to try for a baby, I started fertility treatments with Adrienne and we got pregnant right away! It was wonderful! She is highly skilled, answers all of your questions and guide you through your treatments with ease.I always have people ask if Acupuncture is painful? But all of our treatments have always pain free and relaxing. I have continued my treatments during my pregnancy as well to help with my nausea. It has worked like a charm to help me feel better during my morning, noon and night sickness! I highly recommend Adrienne Wei to anyone trying to pregnant! She is amazing!" - Karen. C
