Miscarriage Prevention

Leaders in Miscarriage Prevention

Miscarriage & pregnancy loss is probably the greatest fear all new expecting mothers face. Some women miscarry once and go on to carry a pregnancy full term, while other women might have reoccurring miscarriages. Quite often there is no medical explanation or diagnosis as to why a miscarriage has occurred.

A miscarriage creates three kinds of stress: physical, emotional, and traumatic. High amounts of stress are known to create fertility issues. While you are lucky that you are able to conceive, miscarriage is still a fertility issue that needs to be addressed from a holistic perspective.

Miscarriage Prevention: Monthly Treatment Plans

Our individualized monthly treatment plans offer an integrated approach to help you prevent a miscarriage.

This treatment plan is a combination of the following treatments:
