Holistic Fertility Support Group
The struggle to conceive can be a very emotional and taxing journey. In conjunction with conventional medical treatments, there are several aspects of health and well-being that can be addressed through complementary techniques. These techniques include diet, exercise, acupuncture, herbs, supplements and coping skills that are imperative in surviving the emotional rollercoaster.
This group provides the opportunity for women to come together and learn about the Chinese medical approach to fertility, as well as other holistic approaches to prepare the body for pregnancy. Most importantly, this group provides the opportunity for women to share their experience with other women who are going through the same struggle and know that no one is alone.
