Gentle care, from IVF transfer day and throughout my pregnancy

I began seeing Harris in August of 2012 while undergoing IVF. I knew immediately upon meeting him that he would help me in my fertility journey. I am certain that his treatments helped me become and stay pregnant, something I was beginning to think would never happen. Not only does Harris go above and beyond in terms of gentle care during acupuncture treatments, but he also takes as much time as you need to discuss your concerns, answer questions, and give you pertinent information.

My acupuncture treatments for infertility, then pregnancy

My husband and I started to try to conceive when I was 35 and after 2 years of trying, we had no idea why I wasn’t getting pregnant. After being tested at the fertility clinic, we were told our infertility issues were “unexplained”. I had a friend who was going to acupuncture treatments for fertility issues too, and I asked her about it. Up until then, I had never even considered acupuncture for anything. I met Erin in June 2009 and upon meeting her, her personal and caring approach made me comfortable with giving it a try. Getting weekly treatments did so many things for me.

Someone I will continue to see throughout my pregnancy and beyond

When my partner and I decided to start on our journey of conception, we were excited about the prospect of having a child as well as the intimate, joyful process that goes along with making that happen. We trusted that nature would take its course and that we would be pregnant before we knew it.

Turning a Breech Baby with Moxa

Hello,
This is Sean from Yinstill. I just wanted to drop you a line to see how you are doing. Did the baby manage to turn with the moxibustion treatments? I hope you, baby and family are well.
Take care,
Sean

I wanted to prevent another miscarriage

I came to Erin as I had experience with miscarriage in the past, and wanted to do everything I could to keep this pregnancy. From herbal remedies to traditional acupuncture treatments, Erin helped calm my worries and educate me on numerous practices. The biggest difference I found from Western medicine was that Erin had time to hear my concerns, and created a treatment plan just for me. She listened and worked with me to overcome every symptom I was experiencing as my pregnancy progressed.

Pregnancy Support

I cannot recommend Sean Quigley enough for pregnancy related acupuncture. I saw Sean for early pregnancy acupuncture and again for labour induction. I had a healthy, relaxed pregnancy after the early acupuncture and went into labour the day after his induction treatment. Sean is knowledgable and personable. I will go back to him now that we've had our little girl for general relaxation treatment. Again, I can't recommend him highly enough!

Support during Late Pregnancy

I had several acupuncture treatments with Sean while I was in my last two months of pregnancy. He was incredibly knowledgable and gentle. He asked a lot of questions about how I was feeling and in turn tried to release areas of discomfort. Overall a very positive experience. I will be back for my next pregnancy:)

Care during Pregnancy

Sean was wonderful with my care of my needs while I was pregnant and wanting to ensure a healthy and safe pregnancy and of course a safe delivery. Thanks for everything Sean. Baby Liv is also grateful! ;)

Thank you!

I got pregnant!!! Erin was so relaxing, knowledgeable, and was not judgmental. It was a wonderful experience.

Acupuncture for headaches and pregnancy

Sean is such an incredible practitioner! I've seen him multiple times for acupuncture - one of which was while I was suffering form daily headaches during the beginning of my pregnancy. After one treatment with Sean, my headache went away completely! Plus his positive energy and humour is always welcome! Highly recommended as a fertility acupuncturist!!!

The best health care experience I have ever had...

Before I saw Dr. Pentland I was always a bit wary of chinese medicine mostly due to a lack of understanding. However, now I can honestly say that it was the best health care experience I have ever had. Dr. Pentland is a warm and intuitive person, but what I was most impressed by was his sound knowledge base which includes but is not limited to; nutrition, physiology, reproductive health, mental health and chinese interventions. I came to see him because I had decided to get pregnant and wanted to start the adventure on it's healthiest course. I had been off of an i.u.d.

Dr. Flynn helped us on our journey to parenthood

I have been a patient of Dr. Erin Flynn’s for over four years. A friend recommended acupuncture as I have PCOS and was having a hard time getting pregnant, and I thought “why not”? A quick Google search led me to a clinic specializing in fertility and my instant love of acupuncture was born.

A true asset to the birthing community

I worked with Harris through the whole pregnancy cycle: conception through post-partum.

I first sought treatment with Harris after a couple years of trying to conceive. At my first appointment Harris began to share his wealth of knowledge about conception and I received my first acupuncture treatment. After just a few sessions, I learned I was pregnant. We were thrilled.

I feel very lucky to have found Dr. Fisher

I feel very lucky to have found Dr. Fisher. He is very personable and immediately made me feel at ease. My first acupuncture visit with him was when I was pregnant full-term with my first child. My contractions started the morning after my appointment and I had an uncomplicated labour and gave birth to a healthy baby boy. I returned to Dr. Fisher about a year and a half later to address postpartum issues with the goal of becoming physically healthy and strong again to try for a second pregnancy. We quickly re-established our rapport and my visits were relaxing and restorative.
