Rikke Blessing, MS, L.Ac.
A friend of mine used Rikke for acupuncture treatments while she tried IVF successfully and she had so many great things to say about Rikke. She told me that one of the couples in her birthing class had started using Rikke after trying for a couple years and two months later they were pregnant. This definitely gave me a reason to try it out. We set up an appointment with her and about 2 months after, I was pregnant naturally! ...Jennifer C, Pacific Grove
I was struggling with infertility. The odds where not in our favor as I was close to 40 years, my husband close to 50, and my cycles were extremely long and erratic. I found Rikke and am so happy to report, after a year of trying, we successfully got pregnant naturally! All fertility specialists told us that we had less than 5% chance and they gave us very little hope. My beautiful little girl is 3 months old now and our whole heart. I recommend Rikke and acupuncture to any one struggling with infertility.Dawn, Marina
I tried to get pregnant for a year and a half and my OB/GYN told me that there is nothing he can do for me anymore and referred me to a fertility specialist. After reading a lot about infertility I decided to wait with fertility treatments like IUI or IVF and give Acupuncture a try first. Before my first appointment with Rikke I didn't have much hope to ever get pregnant, but Rikke was confident that she can help me. After weekly visits for three months I had a positive pregnancy test in my hands! I was so thrilled and thankful that it happened naturally in such a short time! I truly believe this would not have happened without Rikke's expertise.Christina B
I'm pregnant!! Thank you so much for supporting my husband and I during our IVF treatments. I know that your acupuncture made a huge difference in how we felt during the process (much more relaxed) and definitely increased our chances of getting pregnant. We highly recommend your services to anyone going through IVF.Amy P.
