Based off the Making Babies Program

Fertility Group


Fertility Group

Whether you’re beginning your fertility journey, have been struggling with infertility for a while, are trying to conceive naturally, or are using Assisted Reproductive Techniques: our Fertility Group is a unique opportunity for community support, education, & guidance led by senior Yinova practitioner & Fertility Expert, Anne Brunn.

Our group is a safe space for anyone who is trying to conceive to gather & receive advice & support. Transgender men, non-binary & AFAB are very welcome to join.

Understand Your Fertility Situation

Over the course of the group, we will take this time to enhance fertility, based on the program designed by our founder, Jill Blakeway, from her best-selling book Making Babies. We will keep all groups small so that everyone can receive individual advice & have time to share their experiences. Our aim is to share information, help you understand your own fertility situation & provide a community of like-minded people to lean on.

You will leave with a thorough understanding of your menstrual cycle, from ovulation to BBTs & more.
The Five Fertility Types
You'll learn more about your fertility situation & fertility type, as outlined in Making Babies.
Nutrition & Supplements
We will give you advice on optimal nutrition & supplements for your body's needs.
Advice on Intercourse
We'll share the best sex practices for conceiving, from timing to positions to intimacy fatigue.
Emotional Support
We'll offer guidance, alongside a therapist guest speaker, on how to handle emotional upheaval.
Fertility Challenges
Together, we will take a closer look at some common challenges to fertility & provide space to discuss.

Upcoming Groups

We will have several groups throughout the year, with each group taking place online, over zoom. When you enroll, you are enrolling for the whole program. We will record each group meeting so that if you need to skip a week, you will still be able to receive that week’s information.

Frequently Asked Questions

When it comes to fertility, there is no one-size-fits-all solution, which is why we tailor each treatment to the individual. By costuming herbs and treatments to your unique constitution, we’re able to effect change. How does it work? Put simply, the acupuncture increases blood flow to the ovaries and the uterus to support a healthy ovarian follicle and uterine lining. It also decreases inflammation and corrects subtle hormone imbalances. The Chinese herbs are used to support a woman’s natural rhythms and to address complex disorders.

We always keep groups small to ensure everyone has enough time to speak about their experiences and ask questions. While numbers vary from group to group, you can expect between 5-10 people in your group.

Over the course of the group, you will cover a ride range of subjects! Here are a few: fertility basics, your fertility type, understanding you cycle (how to use an OPK, how to read your BBT chart, etc.), cervical health, male infertility, how Assisted Reproductive Techniques can help, Nutrition and dietary advice, lifestyle guidance, and more. Plus, there will be guest speakers throughout from Reproductive Endocrinologists to Licensed Clinical Social Workers and more.

Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years in Asia to boost fertility and address the kinds of medical problems that prevent a couple from conceiving. Recently it has become a popular adjunctive treatment to IVF after studies have shown that it can increase the efficacy of IVF by 50%.

At Yinova we use Chinese medicine to treat fertility-related problems such as PCOS, endometriosis, luteal phase defect, irregular cycles, and amenorrhea. We also support thousands of women a year as they go through IVF and other assisted reproductive techniques. Why does it work? The acupuncture increases blood flow to the ovaries and the uterus to support a healthy ovarian follicle and uterine lining. It also decreases inflammation and corrects subtle hormone imbalances. The Chinese herbs are used to support a woman’s natural rhythms and to address complex disorders.

It is said that 1 in 8 couples struggle to get pregnant. Many of our patients are surprised to hear that, as it’s far more common then they may have previously thought. In our experience, infertility does not necessarily mean that you will be unable to conceive. Oftentimes, there are a few smaller issues that prevent conception, which acupuncture and herbs can help to correct. You can use Chinese medicine on its own or in conjunction with Assisted Reproductive Technologies. 

Most  of our patients see us weekly; however, each case is unique. Your practitioner will craft a clear treatment plan for you and will tell you how often you should have treatment. Everyone responds to treatment differently so your results will depend on your particular situation. There are certain issues that can be addressed in a visit or two; other cases might require more treatments until your goal is met. Your practitioner will be able to guide you on the results you can expect.  Often, patients will notice relief from a specific symptom straight away, though we may need more time to work on the underlying root of the issue.
