I suffered a second trimester miscarriage in my first pregnancy. After extensive testing, my doctor could offer me no explanations as to why it had happened or what I could do to prevent a reoccurrence. After 4 months of trying to conceive without any success, I turned to eastern medicine for fertility. I was hoping that acupuncture could help me to conceive a baby and carry it to term. I set up a consultation with Martha. I felt very comfortable with her because she has a nursing background and I wanted a therapist who had knowledge of both eastern and western methods of treatment. She outlined a program for me using acupuncture and herbs. After 3 months of treatment, I was pregnant. I continued with the acupuncture and herbs throughout the pregnancy ( my OB doctors were aware). Martha not only treated me, she was one of my strongest supporters during a very anxious time. I delivered a healthy baby girl in Sept 2009.
