Fertility, Prenatal, Postpartum and Birth Services

We offer effective, safe treatments to support women through the entire childbearing year…. conception through breastfeeding and beyond!

We use gentle acupuncture techniques, moxibustion, herbal medicine, and nutritional counseling to bring your body back into a state of emotional and physical balance, which naturally facilitates easier conception and a healthier pregnancy. While we welcome couples who are using medical fertility treatments, a medical diagnosis is not necessary to start holistic fertility treatments at The Nesting Place. Our goal is to support and empower women and couples to tune into their deepest wisdom and intuition about which path is the right one for them in starting or growing their families. We tailor our treatments and recommendations to the individual’s needs. We believe that every fertility journey and pregnancy is unique and we are honored to support you wherever you are in the process!

Acupuncture is able to increase the chances of pregnancy through natural conception, IVF, IUI, and other ARTs because it has been clinically shown to:

  • Regulate and stabilize hormone levels
  • Help produce more follicles
  • Increase blood flow to the uterus and ovaries
  • Thicken the endometrial lining
  • Reduce the chance of miscarriage
  • Strengthen the immune system and promote overall health of the body
  • Reduce stress
  • Improve the absorption of nutrients and maintain ideal weight
  • Facilitate relaxation
  • Improve the quality of sleep
  • Have NO side effects – does not introduce toxicity to you and your baby
