Acupuncture for Infertility

We have helped many women achieve healthy pregnancy while successfully overcoming obstacles such as recurrent miscarriage, recurrent pregnancy loss, failed in-vitro fertilizations (failed IVFs), polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase mutations (MTHFR), Factor V Leiden, fibroids, cysts, endometriosis, hormone imbalance, automimmune infertility, anovulation, advanced maternal age, low AMH, poor egg quality, and low ovarian reserve. Many clients are diagnosed with "unexplained infertility" and Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture can provide answers and treatment to support sub-clinical imbalances that contribute to fertility challenges. 


Many healthy babies have been born through IUI, IVF and natural pregnancies with our support. Our biggest reward is celebrating pregnancy and new life experiences with women and their partners as they transition into parenthood.

We are experts at delivering effective acupuncture care for clients with complex fertility challenges. 

Acupuncture Coordination with IVF and IUI Cycles

Care can be coordinated to support Western assisted reproductive technologies such as intrauterine inseminations (IUI), in-vitro fertilization (IVF), in-vitro fertilization (IVF) with Intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), and other types of medicated cycles. Recommendations will be given for the optimal timing of specific treatments with various assisted reproductive technologies. In some cases, it is important and more powerful to create the fertile foundation within you prior to making that investment in assisted reproductive technologies.

Since April 2007, we have provided holistic acupuncture support for our patients undergoing assisted reproductive technologies such as IUI, IVF, sperm donor IUI and IVF, egg donor IVF, and embryo donor and adoption IVF at fertility clinics in Wisconsin, Illinois, Iowa, Oregon and Colorado.  We are experts at delivering effective acupuncture care for clients with complex fertility challenges. 


We can coordinate care for on-site acupuncture* at Wisconsin Fertility Institute in Middleton, WI undergoing embryo transfer with IVF.  * Additional trip charges apply in addition to acupuncture fees for Wisconsin Fertility Institute on-site acupuncture. Please contact us well in advance to coordinate schedules for embryo transfer. We recommend you to schedule a initial acupuncture appointment at least 30 to 90 days prior to transfer begin treatment.


We can also coordinate treatments in our office for clients from UW Generations, and other IVF clinics in the Midwest and beyond. Contact us for an appointment to receive a customized recommendation of treatment to prepare a fertile foundation prior to the IVF or IUI process begins. We offer comprehensive care plans to enhance male and female fertility and support long-term fertility goals.

"Kathleen was referred to me by the Wisconsin Fertility Institute for additional support for the day of my transfer.  Traveling from out of town didn't allow for us to meet and work with one another until the time of our appointment, but that didn't stop me from having one of the most transformative experiences to date!   From our very first contact, Kathleen's professionalism impressed me.   Her streamlined business processes (prompt return call, online scheduling & clear instructions) went above and beyond my expectations.  During a time that is emotional and stressful, compounded with the frustration of commuting several hours from out of town, Kathleen's demeanor and compassion were such a comfort for me.  I was a bundle of nerves before my transfer but the hour that Kathleen and I spent together changed everything and allowed the calm me to resurface!  She was sensitive yet focused.  Her attention to the ambiance (dimming the lights, playing relaxation music and covering me with a blanket to keep me warm) was greatly appreciated as it all was pivotal to the success of the acupuncture treatment.  Her guided meditation allowed my mind to let go of any fears and insecurities, any self-judgment or pain that I was holding onto in order to make space for positivity and goodness which is so critical, especially during this time!   Her presence, kindness, calmness & expertise completely shifted my experience  and I am beyond grateful.   I cannot imagine my transfer without the assistance and tools provided by Kathleen.  And the fact that she comes directly to the Clinic is such a bonus!  I would recommend to any women who is living with fertility issues, whatever they may be, begin a relationship with Kathleen immediately.   My only regret is that I don't live in the same town!   She is truly a gem."
