The Paschen Program

The Paschen Program is for patients who want the highest-level and most specialized support directly from The Nest Founder, Jen Paschen.

This month-long package supports patients who are:

  • Couples working together to prep for baby

  • Women during their fertility journey

  • Prepping for egg freezing and egg preservation

This infertility situation is tough. You’re feeling defeat and despair and you’re not sure what next steps to take.

You’re doing your best: you exercise, quit junk food, converted from conventional to organic, bought a juicer, tried going vegan, ditched the alcohol/and or weed, kicked the coffee, got acupuncture, and your Amazon cart is full of every kind of vitamin under the sun! And still no success.


BLAH! Nothing matters, nothing works; pass the french fries. Amen.

The truth is, you’re probably wondering why you took birth
control pills for all these years in the first place! Turns out-
getting knocked up isn’t so easy.

You’re so over the...

  • ovulation predictor sticks/kits

  • negative pregnancy tests

  • your planned, bland sex life

  • the falling down into the rabbit holes of online fertility chat groups

You're ready to just follow a simple plan that actually works.

Introducing: The Paschen Program

The Paschen Program was created by Jen Paschen, founder of The Nest, and fertility specialist. It's a customized program to support you both inside and outside of the clinic. It's a proven, step-by-step method that has made Jen a leader in the field of Women's Health and Integrative Reproductive Endocrinology for the last 20 years.

More About Me

My name is Jennifer Paschen, most people know me as Jen or JP.

I have been practicing as a Chinese medicine fertility specialist for over 2 decades. I founded The Nest (Chicago, IL) in 2006, a specially designed Chinese medicine practice focused on women’s health, fertility, pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum care.


Over the years, The Nest has become highly recognized as a leader in the field of integrative reproductive endocrinology.

I am honored to say I have helped thousands of women realize their dream of becoming mothers. I’ve seen and treated every type of fertility issue- simple to complex, young and older, helped those TTC naturally, history of miscarriage, PCOS, endometriosis, autoimmune issues affecting fertility, everything pertaining to IUI, IVF, FET, and donor FET.

In 2019 I joined forces with the reproductive endocrinologists at Institute for Human Reproduction (IHR)

I work alongside Drs. Tur-Kaspa and Cohen, pioneering a comprehensive, integrative medicine approach to fertility treatment. Patients receive complementary, holistic care while undergoing IUI, IVF, FET, and donor FET.


Above and beyond work and career: I am a mother.

I have two amazing daughters, Anna and Ellen. Woowee! What a ride it’s been! Mothering has been my most rewarding and challenging life work. Let me tell you, it hasn’t been an easy road parenting kids who are growing up in a world of pervasive social media, isolation of living in a pandemic, breaking down and reshaping social structures/norms, etc. It requires everything you got. Like most teenagers, my daughters have not been immune to the mental/emotional affliction of this generation. They have struggled each in their own way; and in the same regard, have found their own way. We are all a work in progress, every. single. day. So I belive in treading lightly and forgiving often.

In my consulting practice, I not only bring decades of clinical knowledge and expertise to the table, but I tell it like it is.

From a mother’s perspective who has lived through some shit; being able to share my experience and perspective is an honor that is priceless.


Look, I’ve been in the fertility world for a very long time and I will tell you: my clients repeatedly amaze me! Their strength and courage are absolutely inspiring, even when they are tired of trying, tired of taking medications, tired of eating healthy, just plain tired.


The truth is, healing and rebalancing takes a little time. I’ve seen numerous seemingly “miracles” when clients take the time and consistency and make a commitment to themselves. We all need a little self-love.

Enter...The Paschen Program.

Sleeping Baby


Fertility can be a wild ride, and I'm glad I chose The Nest to join me throughout it. From day one, the team there has welcomed me with open arms... they listen to what I have to say and treat me like an individual. While acupuncture/ Traditional Chinese Medicine is their focus, their advice and expertise on other wellness related topics are truly second to none.

Baby's Grasp


I have been going to The Nest for about 7 years now. From my fertility journeys, to my own general health and well-being and now for my kids health and well-being, we are so grateful for these ladies and the care they provide to us. The level of care and attention they provide their patients is excellent.

Baby with Toys


While there are many women who go here for fertility and pregnancy acupuncture,I chose to go to The Nest in Lincoln Square because I wanted a TCM practictioner who understands women's health concerns and who specializes in them.

Frequently Asked Questions

What else can I do to increase my fertility?

My response to this general question:  SO MUCH! Becoming a mother may take some effort- but you know what?! You can do it! The journey of becoming a mother is yours. The energy resides within you. You have the power to allow self-love, abundance and acceptance into your heart.  My feeling is this: It’s not just about having a baby. It’s about becoming the person/mother/parent you want to be.

Can I do this program if I'm also doing IVF/IUI and/or receiving acupuncture?

Absolutely. This program is about preparing YOU for a baby. Yes, we will be putting our energy toward getting you pregnant, but we'll also be focused on preparing the body for pregnancy , postpartum, and beyond. You can also pair this program with in-clinic office visits, which will supercharge our efforts together.

How is this program different from a standard acupuncture appointment?

The Paschen Program is about going beyond the acupuncture. Yes, acupuncture can accomplish incredible stuff and help you get pregnant. But there's also so much more to it than that. We'll be spending time preparing your body and environment to be open to a baby while also adding in the at-home Chinese Medicine practices that will support you in getting there.
