Preconception Services

Preconception services can greatly enhance women’s confidence in understanding their body’s cycles in order to conceive. Included in these appointments are services such as nutritional counseling, cycle monitoring, Maya abdominal massage, and self-care techniques that help to create a balanced environment for conception to occur. Discussion about different herbal and gemmotherapy options to enhance fertility are also included in consultations.

We are pleased to work with all individuals or families to discuss your options for conceiving, including but not limited to fertility counseling as above, as well as different ways of inseminating. This can consist of one or more visits as needed. Christy and Jenni also work in collaboration with these practitioners to provide holistic, inclusive care to individuals and families trying to conceive:

More information on Insemination
Conception by insemination can be an easy process for some, but can also be a stressful and complex time for other individuals and families. This is particularly true if they have already been counselled about their fertility, and getting pregnant is proving to be a difficult endeavor. We have experience with holistic care during the conception period, fertility monitoring, and preparing for insemination.  We are happy to help assist and instruct individuals and couples in vaginal insemination (sometimes called ICI – intracervical insemination) at home, by themselves, with known donor or unknown donor sperm.

We also provide intrauterine insemination (IUI) with washed sperm, as full semen cannot be used for an IUI.  This can be done in both the relaxation of home or at our office.
