Embryo Transfer Support Chicago


Support your Embryo Transfer with Natural Medicine and Acupuncture

Embryo transfer is a critical stage in your fertility treatment, where the embryo is carefully placed into the uterus. This delicate procedure requires the right environment for the embryo to implant successfully.
Use acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine to create the right environment, enhance your fertility, and support the transfer process.

IVF can be emotionally taxing and exhausting. Make the most of your current cycle using acupuncture.

Preparing the body for an embryo transfer is no joke - mood swings, fatigue, emotional rollercoasters, disappointment, the complexity of the medical terms and process, and not to mention the financial burden.

You want to make the most of the IVF process by keeping the body healthy and supported.

Use pre and post embryo transfer acupuncture to relax the uterus and foster blood flow.

Our embryo transfer treatment design aims to improve patient response and experience by promoting a calm, stress-free environment in an effort to optimize the body’s ability to foster pregnancy.


At The Nest, we support pre and post embryo transfers both in our Chicago clinic and onsite at Institute for Human Reproduction Chicago (IHR)

Frequently Asked Questions

What can I do to improve the chances of successful embryo implantation?

At The Nest, we help you create a personalized treatment plan that takes into account your diet, lifestyle, stress levels, herbs/supplements, and goals. We formulate a plan to prepare the body for both pregnancy and motherhood.

How does acupuncture work to support the Embryo Transfer process?

Studies have shown that acupuncture before and after embryo transfer may improve pregnancy rates, increase implantation rates, and reduce the risk of miscarriage. Acupuncture also reduces stress, lowers pain levels/side effects, helps balance hormones, and enhances IVF results. Plus, many of our patients report feeling more supported with the emotional challenges of the process.

How many appointments should I schedule for pre and post embryo transfer support?

We recommend at least 4 treatments overall. Treatment One will occur either the evening before/morning of your Embryo Transfer. Treatment Two will occur immediately after the transfer. We'll wait between 3-5 days post-transfer to deliver another treatment. The final treatment should be administered within a week of the blood pregnancy test.
