A friend told me about David Youran and Indiana Reproductive Acupuncture shortly after we found out our third IVF was unsuccessful. We were in the process of switching to our third Infertility office and were in our fourth year of trying to become pregnant. I had tried acupuncture a couple of years before while living in Boston, so I was open to the idea of trying it again. My husband, a physician, wasn’t a big believer in alternative medicine but figured it wouldn’t hurt anything.
Within the first month of coming to IRA we did our fourth IVF and unfortunately were not successful. I was in a state of shock because I truly believed that eventually IVF worked for everyone. At that point I decided that my body and my mind needed a break from the hormones and procedures. I wasn’t even sure if I wanted to continue down that treatment path anymore. I decided to start seeing David on a more regular basis and concentrate on acupuncture as a primary form of treatment. Within 2 months I found out I was pregnant with our first baby! My husband and I were ecstatic.
Words cannot express how thankful I am to David and the entire office for their support and encouragement throughout this experience. From the moment I first walked into IRA I felt a sense of calming and peacefulness. With each treatment I became more positive and encouraged that I would find success and eventually become pregnant.
I am now almost 7 months pregnant and have been also getting prenatal massages from IRA which has been a real treat.
I honestly believe I would not be pregnant right now if it weren’t for David and IRA. My husband and I are forever grateful to David for helping us receive the wonderful gift of our baby.
