Recommend strongly for fertility treatments!!! – I have been seeing Cara for 9 months now. When I first saw Cara, I had six pregnancies of which five miscarried. I had been going to fertility doctors for 4 years after the second miscarriage. It did result in 1 live birth which I am very happy about. I went through numerous treatments with fertility drugs and IUI in hopes of having a second baby. Eventually, I gave up - the drugs were affecting me emotionally and physically and I was also advised by my fertility doctor that it would not be prudent to subject me to more drugs. I had heard that acupuncture was effective at treating fertility. My visits to another acupuncturist did not yield results. I moved back to Philadelphia and my previous acupuncturist recommended strongly for me to see Cara. Cara, from our initial meeting, provided a comforting and compassionate environment for me. She understood all the emotional and physical issues I was experiencing. Soon after seeing her, I became pregnant. She provided a holistic approach to keeping my pregnancy with a diet to make sure the baby “sticks” and herbs to keep the pregnancy strong. She was always available for my needs through visits, email and phone calls. I really felt she was personally invested in making sure the baby made it. I am now on my 39th week and happily anticipating the birth of my baby. This has been the most supportive and productive healthcare I have had and opened my eyes to a more balanced, healthier lifestyle with the use of Chinese medicine. She definitely does not take a cookie cutter approach to treating her patients, and customizes care based on a person’s needs and lifestyle!
