"Bringing Hope, Harmony & Healing"
This blog is for those who are trying to get pregnant or are having struggles conceiving. My name is Dawn Krueger-Sherin. My background is in Chinese medicine, acupuncture and life coaching. I have been doing this work for over fifteen years. I have had the honor of helping many couples have their dream of having a baby. I work with those prior to getting pregnant, while they are pregnant and prep them for labor and delivery. I have even helped woman during the delivery process. My career has been amazing and it is my joy helping woman through the conception and all things baby process.
I want to create a resource for those who want to start trying and have a healthy baby and also those who have been struggling with getting pregnant. In my experience, many couples don't take enough time to prepare for pregnancy. Many start trying right after they stop birth control. Depending on the birth control they are using, this can be harmful for the baby. Let me first say that if you have had a miscarriage - It is not your fault. It is so common these days for many reasons. Because of my experience with those who have difficulty getting pregnant - I need to start them from the beginning when they join my fertility coaching program. For some it is really tough, but they need to be well before they start trying. The goal is not to have a pregnancy. It is to have a healthy baby in the end.
When I first started my practice, the reasons couples struggled getting pregnant were very different from what is going on today. Most were between the ages of 35-40. Granted, being older makes things a little more difficult but not impossible. I have helped woman up to age 46. It only takes longer when a woman is older. The thought at the time was more woman were waiting longer to try and get pregnant. Although, even back then fertility issues were on the rise for couples. It went from woman in there mid to late thirties to the age I see now - twenty-five to thirty-five. The trend now is a huge increase in male-factor fertility issues. I heard about this about ten years ago but now my practice is having both couples have issues. There are many reasons for this that I will write about later in future blogs.
These days, when trying to get pregnant, it takes preparation. It is a three to six month process. In China they know this well. Many woman know this because their doctor tells them. It takes at least three months on a prenatal vitamin for it to take its affect. Today were in a rush to have everything, including babies. It is worth taking the time to get healthy as a couple and implement good habits that will benefit your family.
In this blog I will be discussing topics such as preparing for pregnancy, natural solutions to optimizing your fertility, preventing miscarriage, healthy pregnancy, and preparing for birth. I will also discuss ways to increase your success for assisted reproductive technology. I have great tips and tricks that can help you get pregnant quickly once you are healthy to do so.
