Sperm Count Increased by 4x - IVF Success After Male Factor Failed Cycle

After a failed IVF/ICSI cycle, our doctor at the fertility clinic advised us that my sperm parameters were likely the culprit, and without an improvement there was probably no point in even trying another cycle. He referred me to Acubalance, suggesting that it was our best hope of having a successful cycle in the future.  

I came to Acubalance for acupuncture when I discovered my baby was breech at 34 weeks.

At 34 weeks I discovered my baby was breech.

I had an ECV scheduled with an OB to flip the baby manually at 36.5 weeks if the baby would not flip on its own by then. 

As soon as I found out I started weekly treatments with Acubalance with acupuncture and moxibustion. They were very helpful and also sent me home with some moxibustion sticks to use on my own to help turn the baby.

The Conception Journey: a frame of mind

It has been almost three months since I started seeing Lorne after trying for almost a year to conceive. I seemed healthy and yet I felt helpless and perplexed about my fertility. I’m a decent age (32), maintain a healthy weight, eat nutritiously and enjoy wine occasionally, exercise and sleep generously, and have a wonderful husband of seven years -- all I could think was "why am I not pregnant like so many women I know right now?" Since...

Induce labour naturally with acupuncture

Hi, Raeghan!

Well, whatever you did to help induce me - worked!!  On Friday, it seemed like early labour was setting in, cramping was getting well underway by 10am. I went to hospital about 5:30pm or so and Brielle was born at 8:11pm. I am just so happy she is on the outside now! I will definitely be coming back to see you again for future babies as it seemed to work like a charm!

Thanks again for everything!
