Patient Care Stories | Danielle, Patient

Danielle, Patient


Treated by: Acupuncture

"My partner and I had been trying to get pregnant for a year-and-a-half when I first came to Bastyr Center for Natural Health. I had read that acupuncture was a great complement to fertility treatment and boosted success rates. So I decided to give acupuncture a try.

"Right away, I began to feel better. I had a lot of depression and anxiety when I first started, and the acupuncture immediately took care of those problems. Acupuncture also helped prepare me for the grueling IVF (in-vitro fertilization) process, which included multiple daily injections with various medications, frequent doctors’ appointments, and a tremendous amount of stress.

"I’d already gone through one failed IVF cycle and wanted to increase my chances of getting pregnant. So with the second cycle I was doing acupuncture at Bastyr the whole time and the IVF was successful, and here we are at 39 weeks pregnant and I am very excited!

"Acupuncture treatments from Bastyr Center have helped calm my anxiety – not just regarding fertility and getting pregnant – but in the everyday sort of life that just happens. I think I’m healthier in a lot of ways and I think it’s benefitted my whole body.

"I would recommend Bastyr to anyone who is struggling with fertility treatments or is looking to improve their overall health. I really believe my daughter is here today because of the care I received at Bastyr."
