When I started my own fertility journey to motherhood I didn’t think it would be hard to get pregnant. Afterall, there are countless pregnant women out and about and easily seen. I was giddy with excitement. I was nervous with the anticipation of motherhood. But most of all, I was anxious to get pregnant already. Because when I decided I was ready to start a family, I was suddenly ready like yesterday.

But each month when I saw the negative pregnancy test, I began to feel disheartened. I’m a fertility practitioner…I should have this down! This should be easy. Right? Well, my journey was a long and rough one. It was difficult to conceive and then each time I did get pregnant, I miscarried. We were devastated and depressed.

I had to apply what we teach our patients for preparing for parenthood. I had to actually “Do” what we recommend. I started getting regular acupuncture treatments – often. I radically changed my diet, I practiced deep breathing and soul searching, I took my supplements and herbs, and made sure my hubby did all the same. And we had to Respect the time it took to happen.

My fertility journey came to fruition when I gave birth to twins at 42 years old. And I share my story as an example of the many women we support and treat on their path to parenthood. It is our passion to help you achieve your dreams of parenthood. Thank you for reading. http:www.harmonyhealthchicago.com #harmonyhealthch
