IVF for the 10th time, delivered at 46...

There's a great story in the Randine Lewis book about a woman who married at 41, went through NINE (9) Count them! IVFs [in vitro fertilization], and finally went to see Dr. Lewis, who prescribed dietary changes, herbs and acupuncture.

In 3 months (I think), she had IVF for the 10th time, got pregnant and delivered at 46...

by Randine Lewis

-- Infertility affects one out of six couples today.

Dr. Lewis presents a groundbreaking alternative approach to infertility, explaining how she used traditional Chinese medicine to treat her own infertility, successfully conceiving and giving birth to two children.

In Lewis's experience, women who have undergone three to six months of the dietary changes, herbs and acupuncture treatments become pregnant with no further effort.

Lewis intersperses her somewhat technical examination of the program with anecdotes about her patients, weaving in discussions on diet, herbal supplements, acupuncture, older women and problems related to infertility.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.

    I,m 44 and have just finished my first IVF cycle. I'll have my first beta test on Monday 3/17. I'm very confident that I am pregnant with a little girl that will be born the first week of December 08. I feel great and cannot wait. Good luck to all who are seeking to fulfill their dream. Be positive and have lots of faith.
