Our path to conceiving a child wasn’t the easy road we expected it to be. However, it was made much easier by Dr. Cherry and his staff. After trying to conceive for more than a year, we discovered that my cycles were very abnormal and that we also had male fertility issues, which meant that IVF was our only chance at conceiving the child we so desperately wanted. A close friend who had also been through IVF recommended that I go to Dr. Cherry for acupuncture prior to and during the IVF process. I didn’t know much about acupuncture before that but thought I would give it a try. Dr. Cherry’s bedside manner and calming spirit immediately put me at ease and helped me relax during what is a very emotionally draining and physically stressful process.
Within weeks, my cycles became more regular and my usual monthly issues, like terrible cramps, went away. Although our first IVF was unsuccessful, I continued to visit Dr. Cherry in preparation for another attempt. Those visits not only helped prepare my body to go through the process again, but helped me heal and deal with the pain of our first attempt not succeeding. It all paid off in the end when we found out we are expecting twins!
I have continued to visit Dr. Cherry throughout my pregnancy and his treatments really helped with my morning sickness, back issues and other pregnancy woes. I cannot stress how much I appreciate all he has done to help my husband and I realize our dream of having children. I truly don’t believe this all would have come together without him.
