Fertility Support


At Prosperity Health Center, we know fertility and pregnancy can be complicated and stressful parts of life. That is why we offer many different services to help you through the journey, including fertility support, pregnancy care, IVF co-management, labor induction, and postpartum care.  

Whether trying to conceive naturally, using IVF/ IUI, or supporting a current pregnancy, our integrated holistic methods are effective in promoting the healthiest environment for a new baby to grow. Using the gentle and safe methods of acupuncture, acupressure, herbal medicine and therapeutic massage, our goal is to restore the body to a balanced state, help to alleviate mental, physical, and emotional stress, and support the body throughout the pregnancy to avoid back pain or conditions such as gestational diabetes.  

These evidence-based practices can significantly increase a woman’s chance of pregnancy with IVF treatment in comparison to those who did not use acupuncture (Paulus et al., 2002). Acupuncture is also effective in treating infertility in both women and men (Zhu, et al., 2018). In our clinic, we have been highly successful in supporting both partners throughout their journey to parenthood. 

If you plan or require labor induction, we can also utilize special acupuncture points to facilitate and shorten the laboring process.

Our support continues past the birth of your baby. Not only is postpartum care crucial for the body to restore normal functions, but it is a time of transformation for a woman. Taking advantage of the changes a woman’s body goes through after pregnancy, we are able to help strengthen the body to facilitate an overall transformation of health and wellness.
