Miscarriage Prevention Q & A

What causes miscarriage, and how can it be prevented?

Most miscarriages occur during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy.

Conditions that frequently cause pregnancy loss include intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR) and intrauterine fetal demise (IUFD). Both conditions are characterized by poor blood flow to the yolk sac and placenta.

The Berkley Center for Reproductive Wellness employs effective techniques to promote tissue health and vital blood flow. Proper blood flow ensures oxygen and nutrients reach the yolk sac, placenta, and developing fetus.

What services are available to assist in miscarriage prevention?

Fertility acupuncture is a highly effective treatment and provides benefits such as:

Enhanced blood flow

Acupuncture promotes blood circulation to the yolk sac and placenta, eventually supporting fetal growth and development with abundant nutrients and essential oxygen. The treatment also reduces inflammation, an important factor for continued pregnancy.

Stress reduction

Pregnancy can come with notable stressors under normal circumstances, but adding additional risk factors can exponentially increase stress and anxiety. Acupuncture enables you to relax, find joy, and heal, taking your calm with you when you return to daily life.

What can I expect from my miscarriage prevention plan?

The Berkley Center for Reproductive Wellness employs a specific acupuncture protocol to address the threats of IUGR, IUFD, and potential pregnancy loss.

Under this protocol, acupuncture sessions are recommended twice weekly for clients undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF) or intrauterine insemination (IUI). These sessions continue for 13 weeks after embryo transfer or IUI.

If the embryo transfer or insemination doesn’t result in pregnancy, The Berkley Center for Reproductive Wellness acupuncture continues treatment to promote health and improve egg quality to increase the odds of pregnancy in the next IVF or IUI cycle.

If IVF or IUI is successful, acupuncture sessions are considered particularly vital and continued twice weekly for 13 weeks. This ensures maximum support during the especially vulnerable first 12 weeks of pregnancy.

The Berkley Center for Reproductive Wellness provides in-depth evaluations and completely customized care to meet your needs, with treatments including herbal medicine and low-level light therapy (LLLT) to support full-body and reproductive health.
