INFERTILITY SUPPORT SERVICES
RMA offers emotional support services to all of our patients, as well as, options for those who wish to use complementary medicine together with conventional medicine.
Infertility can be physically and emotionally challenging for women and men trying to have a baby. It can be a life crisis for many, often described as an emotional roller coaster.
We work with a number of support professionals who specialize in issues affecting people struggling with infertility. We encourage our patients to use the resources available, and we help connect them with the organizations best suited to guide and assist them.
For those who are interested in learning more about these services, please speak with your RMA physician.
Complementary medicine, as defined by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, is a group of diverse medical and health care systems, practices, and products that are used together with conventional medicine. Complementary medicine is not used in place of conventional medicine.
Our physicians support complementary approaches and may integrate these treatment programs into a patient’s individual care.
Complementary medicine techniques such as acupuncture can help women and men better cope with the stress and anxiety of infertility treatment. Acupuncture before and after fertility treatments has a multitude of benefits:
- Increased blood flow to the uterus
- Reduced stress levels
- Increased sperm count
- And more
RMA works closely with Tian Shi Acupuncture, for those who are interested in learning more about these services, please speak with your RMA physician.
