After having tried to conceive on our own for a year and a half, my husband and I were referred to a doctor at the UBC Fertility Clinic. After many tests, I learned I was not a candidate for IVH because of my low ovarian reserve. -- I had a low antral follicle count, and my FSH was 14. It is desirable for AFC to be at least 5 and FSH to be below 10. -- On top of the existing issues, I was 40 years old - no spring chicken!
Featured Success Story
After trying to get pregnant with metformin and then clomid for a couple of years, I ended up with severe hot flashes, headaches, swing moods and no baby! A friend recommended I visit Acubalance. At the beginning, I was very sceptical; I doubted my hot flashes could be fixed with acupuncture. Pregnancy was not on my mind anymore. I was very disappointed.
Wow, I’m not sure where to begin. I think the title alone says a lot. I just wish I had learned about Acubalance a lot sooner.
The first thing I have to say is that I wish I had gone to Acubalance earlier than I did. I am 42, have lead a very healthy life, and am now 22 weeks pregnant with a healthy baby girl but it took me (us) two somewhat agonizing years to get here. I credit our pregnancy to the peace/joy and balance that we had in the latter part of these two years, in large part to my (our) experiences with Acubalance.
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...
It works, believe me! I was terrified of having a doctor "turn" my baby. I was worried about all sorts of things... I really wanted my baby to turn itself. I did the moxa treatment with Dr. Brown and at home did it myself. I felt a little "new age" but the day the baby turned, I felt it. It wasn't too bad and I was so happy he did it on his own!!
My husband and I would like to thank you for all your support and encouragement during a very difficult time for us. From the moment we met you at Acubalance in Langley back in April 2008, we felt comfortable talking to you and sharing with you our infertility journey. Your calm and caring personality made me feel very relaxed every time I came for my acupuncture sessions. As anxious as I was about acupuncture when I first...

Trevor & staff,
Thank you so very much for your excellent, supportive, and caring help over the fall and winter. Even with my medical background, my weekly visits put my mind at ease and helped me truly believe that nature would indeed one day take its course. We had our prenatal testing done at PCRM and everything looks just near perfect! Thanks to everyone there!
