I wish to thank you, Lorne and Spence, for your help during my twin pregnancy. I credit the acupuncture treatments and support with managing the initial symptoms and then having an almost symptom-free twin pregnancy. As you know, I had no previous experience with acupuncture when I was referred to the clinic by our fertility specialist. We had a lot of confidence in her expertise and decided to follow through on her recommendation. We are very grateful that we did. I found your support to be thorough and offered in a kind, gentle way; all of which is very important given the emotional highs and lows of IVF treatments. I had a very healthy twin pregnancy, with the twins born at 36 weeks and with very healthy weights (5 lbs 12 oz and 6 lbs 5 oz).
The treatments and support you provided post-partum made it possible for me to breastfeed. My milk flow was delayed and very low as a combined result of delivery by a planned caesarean (due to an earlier surgery), two urinary tract infections, and a yeast infection. The herbs and the acupuncture made a significant difference in the milk supply and made it possible for me to breastfeed our babies. I am delighted that it has been possible to increase my milk supply given the various complications. The herbs and acupuncture along with a disciplined pumping regimen (with a hospital grade pump) has made it possible for me to have a respectable milk supply for twins; and my milk supply continues to increase gradually even after I completed the treatments. I confess that it has been very challenging to take the time away from my babies to get to your office for treatments and I am glad that we have been able to do so. Your faith that the milk supply would increase despite all the complications really helped me. We are very grateful for your help.
I am happy to share my story with other women in the hope that it will help encourage them as they work on increasing their milk supply.
