I was of “advanced maternal age” when I first became pregnant, but sadly this was an ectopic pregnancy. When I expressed interest in trying to naturally increase my chances of a healthy conception and pregnancy, my OB recommended seeing David. I became pregnant within a few months of starting acupuncture and transitioned to prenatal massage with Sandra for the duration of my pregnancy. I believe seeing her regularly for massage had a large part in my feeling healthy and relaxed during this exciting time. I even had taught my husband some of Sandra’s massage techniques to use on me while in labor! I strongly recommend the use of both IRA’s acupuncture and prenatal massage services as ways to support the pre-conception experience as well as the pregnancy journey.
