S.H.: What a WONDERFUL, caring and attentive staff...and relaxing atmosphere....After learning that my husband and I could not have children naturally, we decided we would do everything within our power to increase our chances of conceiving through IVF. There is no doubt in my heart that acupuncture played a major role in conceiving on the VERY FIRST try! I received treatments throughout my entire pregnancy (pre-pregnancy as well) and it was very smooth, with VERY minimal "symptoms / side-effects". Our baby was born healthy, at 39 1/2 weeks and we went home a day early from the hospital! Sarah is so kind and was very aware of the sensitivity of our situation. We will definitely go back.
S.W.: I loved having worked with Sarah....in conjunction with other infertility treatments, I am happy to say we are now expecting twins summer of 2014. I had never had acupuncture but Sarah made it welcoming and it was never scary. She even remembers all of my doctor's appts and checks in the same day to see how they went - that's my favorite part! I know she has other patients to tend to but she takes time to care about me outside of my appt. time too!
