Threatened Miscarriage

In the thirteenth week of my pregnancy with my youngest daughter, I woke up in the middle of the night bleeding heavily. A trip to the ER revealed the baby was still miraculously alive, but I had a large subchorionic hematoma ("bruise") on my placenta. The ob/gyn told me "I'm not sure which way things will go." After a couple more weeks of heavy bleeding and bedrest, a friend encouraged me to return to Acubalance. I was amazed at the confidence and hope Ryan provided. I was even more amazed when, from weeks 16-20, with acupuncture treatments, the hematoma resolved itself. By week 20, at a thorough ultrasound check by the perinatologist, there was no hematoma to be found! It was a miracle. The rest of my pregnancy was blissfully uneventful.

I feel that God worked through Ryan and acupuncture to provide hope and healing during a very dark time. I am so very grateful for the support, encouragement, and healing I received. Thank you, Ryan and Acubalance. Our little daughter is a miracle and I will always remember the kindness I was shown during a challenging time.
