Introducing our January 2nd baby!
Here is what her mom, Lyndsay Best, had to say about her experience with the L-C Life-Care Fertility program:
"She is a sweet little baby, and she's healthy which is the most important thing. She is sleeping really good, and she's feeding...

Lila came to our clinic on November 27, 2003 with unexplained infertility. After a careful consultation she was put on a special treatment program of acupuncture and TCM to prepare her for an IVF procedure.
Lila wrote: “Born September 26, 1968 started seeking treatment when I was 30 years old. The first thing I had was a hystereosonigram to see if my tubes were blocked. My tubes were fine. Then we proceeded to have a laparoscope’s. The doctor found a mild case of endometriosis and did laser treatment during the scope and got it all.” The next cycle we conceived our son who will be 3 on April 11th 2004.
After trying again to conceive for about 6 months we sought a specialist once again. She said we should perform another laporoscopy because quite often endometriosis does come back. On April 2nd, 2003 I had another laporoscopy but this time everything looked great.
I continued to try two cycles of super ovulation with no luck. Now at 35 years with a FSH level of 7.6 we decided to try in vitro fertilization.”
Lila continued: “ I was a low responder to the fertility drugs used in in vitro fertilization because I only started with 9 follicles during the cycle. Of the 9 follicles only 6 follicles matured. Fortunately all 6 follicles had eggs in them and all 6 eggs were fertilized. On February 6, 2004 was the egg retrieval date and on the 9th was day 3 implantation. There was no cramping during or after the implantation. They implanted 3 eggs.”
14 days later my HCG level was at 255. On day 116 my HCG level was at 597. We have a pregnancy!”
Before the implantation Lila received 7 acupuncture treatments close together; and after the implantation another 7 acupuncture treatments over a span of 2 ½ weeks. Lila then received acupuncture once a week for the first 3 months of her pregnancy. For the remainder of her term she had acupuncture twice a month to stimulate delivery as she has gone past her due date. Lila delivered an 11lb.5 oz. healthy baby boy naturally on November 3, 2005
