Fertility, Pregnancy, Postpartum

Thinking about getting pregnant? Ready to get pregnant? Already wanting to be pregnant?

Having a healthy foundation is essential and can greatly increase your chances, for conception either naturally or through advanced reproductive technology.  Allowing 3-6 months to prepare your body for pregnancy not only produces healthier eggs and sperm, but it also creates an optimal environment for your growing baby.

I enhance your fertility by addressing all aspects of your health, nutrition, lifestyle, constitution and mind to fully prepare you for preconception and pregnancy.

I am pleased to offer customized, integrative, comprehensive treatment plans to optimize your health and hormone balance.

Infertility

I understand that conception is not easy for all couples, and fertility issues are at the forefront of reproductive health.  If you are having difficulty conceiving or maintaining a pregnancy, craniosacral therapy and integrative medicine can offer many options.

I have experienced firsthand how strongly BCST can positively influence the reproductive and endocrine systems and help couples achieve healthy pregnancies.  It has brought me tremendous joy to be part of this meaningful process.

During your first visit, I take time to listen to your needs and goals. My goal is to identify and treat the root cause of your infertility while at the same time optimizing your health, wellness and hormone balance using craniosacral therapy, supplements, nutrition therapy, and lifestyle counseling. My approach treats you as a whole person, integrating mind, body and emotions to address your health on all levels.

I am here to offer hope, a calm environment, and non-judgmental support for however you choose to navigate your options. Ultimately, you need to feel great about choosing the best course of action for you and your family.

I work closely with doulas, fertility acupuncturists, as well as consulting with a network of excellent health care practitioners who understand fertility issues.

Female Fertility

The goal of craniosacral therapy is to promote a healthier and more balanced state, which optimizes your chances for conception. You can use it to:

  • Improve the function of the ovaries to produce higher quality eggs
  • Regulate menstrual cycles
  • Regulate the hormones to produce a larger number of follicles
  • Increase blood flow to the uterus and increase the thickness of the uterine lining
  • Relax and de-stress —so your body is a safe, cozy place for a baby to grow
  • Strengthen the immune system/Increase energy
  • Improve quality of sleep and increase energy

While starting craniosacral therapy at any point in your preconception or fertility journey is beneficial, I recommend three months of preparation to increase chances of a healthy pregnancy.  Three months is important because takes about 90-150 days for an egg to grow from a follicle in its resting state to a full blown egg ready to be released.  My goal is to help create healthy high quality follicles, balance hormones and get the body as a whole in the best condition for conception to occur.

Pregnancy

Pregnancy is an exciting and wonderful time. However, with the many physical and hormonal changes that occur, it can be a time of discomfort. Craniosacral therapy and nutritional therapies provide a drug-free, effective and non-invasive treatment option for:
