This course will examine the physical, mental and emotional health of a woman undergoing IVF from the period of embryo transfer (fresh or frozen) through the first heartbeat detected on ultrasound.  Particularly, the course will focus on the stress induced by this “high stakes” time period, and the impact that stress may have on early pregnancy.  Additionally, we will present the common medical tests and “hurdles” women face during this time and how to best support them.  Luteal lab work, beta HCG testing, chemical pregnancy, ultrasound and early miscarriage will be discussed.  Modes of adjunct treatment to be presented will include acupuncture, basic herbal protocols (this is not an herbal medicine presentation, but will nod to the commonly used formulas for this time frame) and nutrition and lifestyle recommendations.  Acupuncture concepts and sample protocols will be presented through the lens of the Eight Extraordinary Meridians.
