Pregnant Naturally At 41

Dear Lorne,

It’s been a couple of months since I last came to see you for acupuncture treatment so I thought you might like to know that there’s been good-news development for me: about two weeks after my last treatment in mid-July, I found out I was pregnant naturally at 41! I’m now at about 11 weeks and am — somewhat anxious! — awaiting the results of my CVS test done this week. So far, everything seems to have been going well and the baby has had a strong heartbeat on all of the ultrasounds.

I wanted to thank you for your help on this journey so far. When I first came to you, I wasn’t sure what my chances were going to be following my surgery for uterine scarring earlier this year, and was considering the possibility of doing IVF if nothing had happened by this fall. So I’ve been pleasantly surprised and delighted to find myself pregnant naturally at 41. During my sessions with you, you both gave me lots of helpful information about enhancing fertility that regular doctors didn’t. Who knows which combination of those might have done the trick? Many thanks, you.
