Everspring Health approaches reproductive health in several different ways, the first of which is proactive. Come see us when you’ve just begun planning a family. It is actually quite common for healthy couples to face fertility hiccups and challenges. These often occur when lifestyle stressors inconveniently line up with natural shifts in hormonal rhythms that could temporarily affect either partner. Most often in this stage challenges are associated with expectations of planning and lifestyle related stress instead of clinical health conditions.
Engaging with us before planning becomes more targeted means that, at the very least, we can create a program where everyone involved is healthier, more comfortable, and more prepared to greet a new member of the family. Often couples come to us in the midst of their planning calendar which increases stress and often leads to further challenges. Our recommendation is at least 90 days of preparation to help allow for ideal alignment of expectations and natural hormonal rhythms. This time period might need to be increased depending influential factors like extended use of birth control pills as one example. With the right preparatory care, you can increase your chances of a healthy pregnancy, healthy birth and decrease the risk of postpartum challenges.
Should you already be experiencing challenges with a healthy conception, it’s important for you to know that nothing is necessarily wrong with you or your spouse: it may just be that you need tools to help reduce stress, improve your state of health and better regulate reproductive processes. We create a Foundational Care program inclusive of your needs. We may use therapies like acupuncture and massage, nutritional therapies, and lifestyle coaching to create a better environment for pregnancy without putting the large amounts of stress on the woman’s body that reproductive endocrinology involves. Using our integrative approach, we can give your body its best chance to create and foster new life.
Finally, for those already using reproductive support services (e.g. a Reproductive Endocrinologist) we can work to support your current program including providing acupuncture to support ovarian stimulation as well as for regulation before and after embryo transfer.
