A healthy baby for an “infertile” couple
Kimberly was 33 years old when she came to me after her third miscarriage.
Understandably she was upset and confused as to why she could not carry a pregnancy. She was relatively healthy, following a whole food, nutrient dense diet and getting regular exercise. Both she and her husband had been through all the tests and were both diagnosed with the often bittersweet diagnosis of “normal.”
I sent Kimberly for some additional testing to determine if I could see some “abnormal” in her “normal” values. I also referred her for support through therapy, as anyone who has been through this knows it is tough, to say the least. While we awaited labs I supported Kimberly with some specific nutrition advice and general supplements of 5-MTHF (active folic acid), oils and some homeopathic medicines.
When the lab results returned we found some values that were “normal” but not optimal, which I find quite often occurs with patients. We focused support on optimizing the values and balancing hormones with herbs, homeopathics and oils.
Two months after starting all the support Kimberly found out she was pregnant. We monitored closely the first 12 weeks, getting regular labs and continuing on supplement support. Kimberly did really well through her pregnancy and labor and now is the proud mamma of a healthy, beautiful little girl.
