During the first four months of my pregnancy, I was experiencing nausea 24 hours a day, seven days a week. I also had vertigo, and the intermittent dizziness would aggravate the nausea. Lorne Brown was highly recommended by a good friend of mine because of his experience treating women's health issue, in particular pregnancy and infertility. I was nervous as I had never tried acupuncture before. However, all other medications and remedies offered by my doctor were not helping. I had only required a few acupuncture sessions before I stopped experience nausea and vertigo.
At 34 weeks pregnant, my baby was in the breech position. I came to Raeghan Siemens in desperation, unsure of what acupuncture and moxabustion was all about; I was willing to try anything to get the baby to turn. I was planning a home birth and if the baby didn't turn in time, I would be scheduled for a C-section. I felt overwhelmed and full of anxiety.
