Sage Living Acupuncture Chester NY
"My husband and I were trying to conceive for 2 years before seeking help from Carlette and a fertility doctor. During that time I was diagnosed with stage 3 endometriosis. My acupuncture treatments not only helped regulate my cycle but also my mental health. Every week was like a therapy session. Before I knew it I was sleeping better and eating better. My migraine headaches subsided and my energy levels went way up. In March 2017 we did our first IVF cycle. I continued acupuncture during this time as well as prior to and after my embryo transfer. On February 6, 2018 I gave birth to my daughter. I owe so much to Carlette and her treatments, her listening ear, her encouraging words and her wonderful advice and knowledge. Acupuncture played a huge role in the success of my IVF cycle. I would encourage anyone dealing with infertility to try acupuncture."
My husband and I had been trying to conceive for almost 3 years. I had been given the diagnosis of unexplained infertility. I had been going through fertility treatments for at least a year. I had had 4 IUIs...one which resulted in a pregnancy I unfortunately lost at 12 weeks. That's when the doctors told me I would need to do IVF. That's when I found Carlette. I felt so hopeless and exhausted by the time I started my treatments with her. I just figured if the doctors were telling me that only IVF would work then that was what I was going to have to do. But Carlette offered me other alternatives in the way of acupuncture combined with herbs. Her positivity, kindness and support were also a big part of my treatment. Going to her was a way to destress, relax and get my mind right as well as my body. Within 4-5 months I found myself pregnant!! And this was all without modern medicine! I just gave birth to my son a couple of weeks ago...an amazing experience i was afraid I might never experience. Carlette is a major part of why I was successful in becoming pregnant. I would recommend her to anyone that is struggling with fertility issues...she is amazing!"
“After ten failed IUIs, one failed IVF, and a miscarriage, I was getting to the end of my rope! All the strength and tenacity I had left just seemed to fade away. That's when you picked me up, dusted me off and made it very clear you would not be attending my pity party. After all the procedures I'd had over a five year period, the only time it worked was after adding acupuncture, herbs, and of course, you! Thank you so much for all that you have done to help me have the family I dreamed of. Your skill is impeccable, and your positive approach and confidence are equally comforting."
"It was a tough road for me and Carlette got me through! Between her guidance, acupuncture, and herbs I was finally able to get pregnant naturally! I had many failed IUI's and a few miscarriages as well. Every time I was frustrated, sad, anxious or worried, Carlette was there for me. She was not only someone who gave me acupuncture, she advised me on nutrition as well as constantly kept me up to pace with the most modern research on fertility. I can always count on her to get me through tough moments by either phone or sitting down and talking until I felt calm and reassured. One thing I can say about my sessions is that Carlette kept me positive and never gave up on me. It was because of her that I was able to get through a very tough year of my life! My husband and I are very happy we chose this path and without her guidance and support I don't know how we would have stayed positive and kept trying."
"2012-2013 proved to be trying years for me and my husband. We had been trying for some while to get pregnant, doing everything by the book and nothing was happening. In late 2012, I was diagnosed with endometriosis... the cherry to top off the sundae. We were devastated and thought for sure that children of our own were not in our future. We started fertility treatment in early 2013, at which time I had also started to seek treatment from Carlette. I must say, I was a skeptic in the beginning. I was just going through the motions, doing whatever doctors suggested that may improve my chance of fertility. From my first session with Carlette, she made me feel like there was hope. She helped me stay positive through all the chaos that accompanies the IVF process. I went through my first round of IVF in April 2013. A few days later I had my first pregnancy test, my husband and I had never been so nervous waiting for that call with the results... POSITIVE!!! I just remember crying waterfalls of joy! At our first sonogram we found out even greater news, we were having twins! On December 19, 2013 my husband and I welcomed our 2 boys into the world. We couldn't be happier or more elated! Needless to say, I always left my appointments with Carlette feeling more hopeful than before. She never focused on the negative, always on the positive. She was a rock in a time of uncertainty. I will highly recommend Carlette to anyone and everyone seeking treatment, no matter the reason."
"My husband and I were devastated after my first pregnancy ended in a miscarriage at 13 weeks. We were so scared to try again and yet we desperately wanted a baby to start our family. After speaking with Carlette, we decided to try a natural path to pregnancy and birth. After just 2 months of treatment we were overjoyed to discover I was pregnant, but the fear of whether our baby would survive to birth was still with us. Carlette continued to care for me throughout my pregnancy and keep me balanced mentally and physically and in December 2013, we gave birth to our beautiful, healthy daughter! Thank you Carlette for your compassionate care, empathy and genuine concern for my (and my baby's,) well being."
