A pediatric nurse at BC Children’s Hospital, Melani Waterman, 40, has used Acupuncture in a bid to become pregnant. After 2 and a half years of trying, Waterman believes it wouldn’t have been possible without acupuncture. The result after acupuncture and other treatments is twins Lukas and Charlotte. Melani said she was initially uncomfortable about acupuncture, but the procedure wasn’t as difficult as she had thought. “I left the Acupuncture clinic so relaxed” she said. There were infertility problems, the result of age, stress and low sperm count, that were assisted by acupuncture.
