Fertility Wellness Services
Reproductive wellness means total wellness. At NYRW we recommend a total approach to care that addresses the body, mind, and spirit. Adjunct treatments like acupuncture, yoga, and nutrition counseling can improve chances of success. Let us share some of our recommended treatment options and providers with you on your new patient consult.
Yoga+Fertility - Yoga can be a helpful tool for patients undergoing fertility treatment to help reduce stress and anxiety levels. It can also help the body prepare for pregnancy. Ask your NYRW care team about the benefits of incorporating yoga into your fertility treatment cycle.
Acupuncture+Fertility - There are a few studies that have shown the benefit of acupuncture during fertility treatment including IVF. A published study from 2017 titled Laser Acupuncture Before and After Embryo Transfer Improves In Vitro Fertilization Outcomes: A Four-Armed Randomized Controlled Trial, concluded that laser acupuncture improved implantation rates in IVF.
At NYRW we recommend both traditional and laser acupuncture for our patients. We happily refer patients to a number of acupuncturists including Dr. Christine Bauer 401 Fulton St, Westbury, NY 11590 for treatment. More information can be found at www.drchristinebauer.com.
Nutrition+Fertility – Foods rich in whole grains and vegetables, low intake of unsaturated fats, and eating fish on a regular basis have been associated with improved fertility in both women and men. The impact of dairy, alcohol, and caffeine have been associated with poorer fertility outcomes in women and men generally speaking.
