My personal struggle with infertility

At the time I first opened my practice, nearly 10 years ago now, I had no idea that I personally would struggle with infertility. Like many women, I got married in my late 30's and though my wife Ellen and I knew we wanted children, we simply weren't ready. In the back of my mind I knew we couldn't wait long, so at 38, I began IUI's with donor sperm. We were elated and thrilled to have officially begun trying to build our family, but my age, endometriosis and ovarian reserve, quickly become a co...

Why I think BBT Charts are super cool

When I first heard about charting I thought it was a terrible idea. I couldn’t understand why in the world I would bother taking my temperature every day when I could just use an ovulation predictor kit. But then I realized, OPK’s don’t work so well for me. I peed on that little stick day in and day out but got nothing! Begrudgingly, I started charting. Low and behold, it opened up a whole world of understanding for me about my body. And, I learned when I was ovulating. Amazing. I...

Turning breech babies naturally

These days I find most women want to do everything they can to increase their likelihood of having a natural labor.  Soon-to-be mothers and doctors alike are recognizing the important benefits of a vaginal birth.  But when it comes to breech babies, most women are presented with very few options and end with cesarean deliveries. I help women turn breech babies naturally so they can avoid cesarean sections all together.  In my private practice, I find a three-prong approach of combining acu...

Is Stress Managing You?

Ugh, stress.  I think many of us have gotten to the point in our lives where we fell like stress is an unavoidable, maybe even out of control, force in our lives.  While stress maybe unavoidable, it doesn’t have to feel out of control, we can tame the beast.  What I’m saying is, we don’t have to accept stress as a lifestyle and more over, we can’t afford to...not even for one more minute. I learned this lesson in my twenties from Vivian, an ex-nun who left the convent at age 55 to ...
