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.
Based off the Making Babies Program
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.
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.

I am so thankful for the Fertility Coaching & Support Group. I am not local to NYC. I’m glad others who can’t physically attend will have this opportunity. I believe Yinova is why I am having a successful pregnancy this time around.
Lani, Yinova Patient
I am so grateful for the opportunity to have joined Yinova's first ever fertility support group. I learned so much from Mary and Anne, and made long-lasting connections and friendships with the women in the group. Their knowledge, experiences, and support were invaluable.
Katie, Yinova Patient
I thought the group was wonderful and want to thank Anne & Mary. It felt like such a great experience because of the way they led each week. They have so many strengths as leaders on such a sensitive topic. They cared about the members of the group and left space for everyone to ask any questions or to contribute. They made me look forward to attending each week. Their personalities made each week a calming, reflective, inspiring, and insightful place to be for the time we were together. Every week, I was rejuvenated after class and felt recharged and ready to continue on my journey.
Dani, Yinova Patient
I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with Anne, Mary & my cohort in our fertility support group. I originally joined because I heard a statistic that women increase their chances of getting pregnant when they join a support group. I was so tired of hiding in shame about my struggles, as a woman and a practitioner and found it so comforting to know other women could relate to my journey. Each call was packed with resources and loads and loads of empathy, facilitated so skillfully by Mary and Anne. I’m happy to report that 2 weeks after our last class, my husband and I found out we were expecting. Today we are going strong at 9 weeks, expecting a baby girl in August.
Marianne, Yinova Patient
I found great peace and more knowledge of my body with this group. For those of you who might be looking for extra support from an intimate group with members from across the country, I highly recommend The Yinova Center's Fertility Coaching and Support Group and their practitioners. I am certain the combination of this program with my fertility treatments is why I achieved pregnancy! I am still in touch with the other women to build each other up during times of uncertainty or when it's time to celebrate achievements along the way.

Frequently Asked Questions
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.
In our experience, “infertility” is vastly broad diagnosis that many of our patients receive from their doctors. While it may be tricker to get pregnant, oftentimes it is not impossible. Even gently addressing hormone imbalances through acupuncture and herbs & making subtle lifestyle changes can have a huge positive impact. Here’s a story about a patient who was told she had a less that 1% chance of conceive, and how we helped her have a baby.
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.
