“This holistic program is for men and women interested in maximizing their fertility. My patients range from couples looking to achieve their optimum health potential before pregnancy, to those working with documented impediments to pregnancy such as: thyroid disorders, endometriosis, premature ovarian failure (POF), irregular menstruation, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), recurrent miscarriages, suboptimal semen analysis and immunologic infertility. I look forward to working with you.” –Dr. Maureen Rozenn

“I find working with fertility enhancement to be so rewarding. Patients learn about their bodies and how they can directly impact their fertility potential with everyday diet and lifestyle choices. I feel strongly about patient empowerment; it is key to the success of my practice. Therefore, I spend a lot of time helping patients understand and interpret their body’s fertility signals. This gives them some control over a process that can feel overwhelming.”--Dr. Maureen Rozenn
“I am research scientist, and I have always been a little skeptical about acupuncture and other non-western medical practices. After my experience with Dr. Rozenn, however, I enthusiastically recommend her for the treatment of fertility issues. My husband and I were trying to conceive for the second time and after a year, we saw an M.D. specialist in infertility. He explained that Western medicine had no easy answer for my particular issue (my cycles were short and he suspected I was ovulating before my eggs were mature), and recommended that I try meditation or yoga as a first strategy. He also mentioned that there was a program available that combined standard infertility treatment with acupuncture. After talking to a friend of mine (who recommended Dr. Rozenn), I decided to try acupuncture alone for three months and then reassess my options. Dr. Rozenn was willing to work with me either with or without parallel treatment from my M.D. and was positive but realistic about my chances of conceiving. I appreciated that she did not discount the role of Western medicine in infertility treatment, but I opted for a non-parallel approach. I decided to follow all of her recommendations to the letter so that I would have no doubts at the end of three months that I had given the process my all. I changed my diet, took herbal and other supplements, saw Dr. Rozenn on a weekly basis and opted for abdominal massages from Brianna Brownfield (Dr. Rozenn’s assistant, whom I also enthusiastically recommend). I noticed changes in my cycle within one month of starting my treatments, and within two cycles my standard headache (a hallmark for 12 years), did not accompany my period. During my third cycle since start of treatment, I ovulated on day 14 for the first time in 7 years, and I am now thrilled to say that I am 11 weeks pregnant. I am entirely convinced that it was the treatment program that I pursued with Dr. Rozenn that enabled my husband and I to conceive this baby. If you are in a similar situation, I encourage you to consider Dr. Rozenn and acupuncture as a treatment option. I am so grateful that I was able to conceive without risking multiple births or spending enormous sums on IVF. This experience has convinced me to consider acupuncture among the practices I typically pursue to maintain my general health. Thank you, Dr. Rozenn and Brianna!” Rachel S.-Mountain View
Statistically, the root of each couple’s infertility is thought to lie with the woman 33% of the time and solely with the man 33% of the time, meaning that in the rest of couples, 33%, both partners are responsible for some degree of infertility. For this reason, unless it is clear from Western testing that the blockage to fertility is ONLY with the woman or ONLY with the man, the most effective approach is for each couple make their first visit a Couples Fertility Program Appointment. However, if one partner wants to start treatment first or feels that only they need Oriental medical therapy, those wishing to enhance their fertility can book a New Patient Appointment.
