Fertility Successes

15/04/2018

I wanted to show how much I appreciated Jenny’s healing and advise for my case so others can hopefully read and experience miracles too. My story is below.

I got married in March 2017 and my husband and I decided a couple of months later we would like to start a family together. I had been on the Depo Provera contraceptive injection for ten years and had the last one not long before our wedding. Being on this injection you do not experience any regular cycles or bleeding. I knew to give it six months to get it out of my system then was hoping for a cycle to take place but this never happened.

I went to see a gynaecologist who sent me for an ultrasound and blood test and said that my endometrium lining was very thin at only 1mm, and it would take a long time to get my cycles back. I started to do my own research and found Jenny Li’s clinic, she looked very knowledgeable and experienced so I was very keen to meet her and made an appointment for a few days later.

I had my first acupuncture session on the 16/08/2017 and continued to see her once a week. She recommended I started a herbal treatment as well because my lining was so thin and my job made me exhausted. I started this treatment on the 07/09/2017. Then on the 17/10/2017 I experienced my very first menstrual cycle in over ten years! This was only after two months of acupuncture and a month of taking the herbal medicine!

We decided to wait one cycle before trying for a baby and started trying the next cycle while I continued acupuncture and the herbal medicine. On the 16/01/2018 I found out that I was pregnant and on the 18/01/2018 my HCG was 230. I am currently 13 weeks pregnant with a little boy due in September 2018.

I believe this never would of happened without the help of Jenny and I will forever be grateful!

I’m a 45yr old female who suffers from very heavy periods and dangerously low iron levels. My partner and I tried for years to have a baby naturally, only to be told by our GP as well as many online sources that it was highly unlikely at my age.

About 2 years ago we were surprised to be told I was pregnant. Sadly it wasn’t mean to be as our baby had no heartbeat at 6weeks and I eventually miscarried by week 7.
We came across the Harmony Clinic website about a year ago and read all the reviews on the positive experiences many families had through alternative Chinese medicine. Feeling a bit unsure, we thought “what do we have to lose?” At my first meeting with Jenny, I found her to be very knowledgeable about female & male fertility, as she took the time to explain a lot of things to me as well as walk me through ways to improve one’s health and chances of conceiving a baby naturally.

We started the acupuncture treatments on a weekly basis, and every time we attended the appointments – Jenny was always so kind and caring, but at the same time very informative and gave us a lot of sensible and great advice for a healthier lifestyle for both myself and my partner. We took on board all of Jenny’s advice and even attended a fertility seminar, which she had kindly invited us to.

We can honestly say, that Jenny definitely knows what she’s talking about, because a few months after meeting Jenny – our GP confirmed last September that we’re pregnant. One of the first people we had to tell was Jenny. Because she’s pretty much been with us throughout our journey. At my age everything is harder, the morning sickness was terrible, but Jenny helped with that too. I’m now 6months pregnant, have had 3 scans so far which show our healthy baby girl growing and moving with a lot of energy. We now see Jenny once a month to ensure I remain healthy throughout the pregnancy.

We’ve been through so much, but Jenny has been there every step of the way for us. She’s more than just our acupuncturist – Jenny is like family to us.

For anyone who believes it’s not possible to have a baby naturally later in life – we encourage you to not give up hope. Because we didn’t give up.

Thank you Jenny for everything.

I started having acupuncture with Jenny in June 2017. I used to have lots of cramps and headache before and during my periods, however, just after two or three times acupuncture with her, I don’t have headache anymore and just have a little bit cramps. Right now I don’t have PMS anymore and my pulse improved from “very weak” to “good”.

The most amazing thing is that my AMH value changed from 3.1 to 8.9! I was told by the fertility specialist that AMH can’t be improved and that it decreases by age so I am glad I didn’t give up and keep doing the weekly acupuncture. Jenny’s treatment is very unique and professional, she is also very caring during the treatment to make sure I don’t get cold and can relax. She is also a very friendly person to chat with.

I highly recommend Jenny and wish more couples can be benefited from her.

Baby Grace was born from a natural birth at Wellington, weighing 8 Pounds 🙂


What her mum Alex.H said on 31/05/2017

I sought assistance from Jenny at Natural Harmony at short notice when undergoing my first round of IVF. I had researched all possible ways to increase the chances of a successful implantation and acupuncture was consistently mentioned. I drove immediately from the fertility clinic to Jenny’s practice after the embryo transfer, and not only did I receive much needed reassurance, but the acupuncture must have helped – now I am 16 weeks pregnant!

I went back to Jenny on several occasions to provide my baby the best chance of survival in those early stages. She was always genuinely caring and provided valuable advice. She is obviously very passionate and knowledgable about Traditional Chinese Medicine and I will be sure to go back to her when we are ready for baby number two to come along!

Baby Oakley was born from a natural birth after acupuncture labour inducing, weighing 7Ib 6oz:-)

What his mum Rosie.S said on 25/05/2017

My husband and I had been trying for almost a year to get pregnant with no success. My periods had stopped for 5 months and before being referred to fertility treatment I decided to try acupuncture with Jenny to try to regulate my hormones naturally.

I saw her each week for just over a month and before my period ever retuned I was pregnant! The acupuncture released a lot of stress and anxiety. I would highly recommend it to anyone trying to conceive. I am now 17 weeks pregnant and our little one is due beginning of November. I couldn’t be more thankful!!

Thanks again!

Baby Ayla was born on 10/07/2017 from a C-section, weighing 2.95kg 🙂

What her mum R.B said on 08/11/2017:

My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for 10 years. We’ve tried everything – from traditional to western – and went through three rounds of IVF. For my fourth embryo transfer, a friend suggested that I see Jenny from Natural Harmony to increase the chances of successful implantation. I was sceptical as I had tried acupuncture.

At the last minute and very short notice, I decided to try. Jenny saw me before and after the embryo transfer. The transfer was successful! I continued to see Jenny during the first trimester so my body can provide the optimum care and to be able to hold on to the pregnancy.

I am thankful to Jenny! Right from the start I felt at ease with her. Jenny patiently addressed any concerns and questions I had – which was quite a few! She is a genuinely caring and supportive person. I always felt better after a session with her.

I visited Jenny from Natural Harmony when I was ten days over due with my first baby. I had tried all other natural induction methods and decided I would give acupuncture a try before my medical induction booking 4 days later.

Jenny was very warm and friendly. She didn’t plan to work that Thursday afternoon but came into the office just to help me with my special case. She used acupuncture in a number of areas which was pain free and comfortable. We had great chats along the way.

Jenny told me to come back In to see her in 48 hours if there was still no progress. On Friday night at 7.30 (27 hours after visiting Jenny) my contractions started, and just 8 hours later I had my baby boy in my arms. I had a completely natural water birth. I believe that Jenny assisted kick start my contractions and further assisted in my fast delivery.

Jenny is very professional and very kind lovely person, I recommend her to anyone and everyone having troubles with fertility or pregnancy.

Baby Rory was born from a natural birth after acupuncture labour inducing, weighing 2.8kg 🙂

After the first labour inducing acupuncture on 23/05/2017, baby was fully engaged,

Then 4 hours after the second acupuncture on 26/05/2017, water broke and the baby was born over night!

What his mum Hannah said before:

I came to see Jenny as I had incredibly irregular periods. My youngest son was two and a half and I had only had two periods since his birth. My husband and I wanted another child but needed to get past this barrier.
Jenny was informative and encouraging. I left after my first appointment feeling as though I was in good hands and positive that I would get my cycle back for this first time in a long time.

Two days after my first appointment my period returned and I had another cycle 5 weeks later. Now after three months of visits I am two months pregnant. I never knew it could happen so quickly! Jenny is amazing. I feel safe energised and happy when I see her. Now she’s helping me with morning sickness!

Thanks Jenny!

Baby Eva was born on 29/04/2017 from a natural birth, weighing 2.925kg!

What his mum Etty said on 30/10/2016:

Over the past 6 years, my partner and I have had 12 unsuccessful fertility attempts, via intrauterine insemination (IUI) and In vitro fertilisation (IVF) at Fertility clinics in South Africa and in New Zealand. From the beginning of 2016, in preparation for our 13th attempt, I started receiving fertility acupuncture treatments from Jenny Li on a weekly basis.

We are happy to announce that we are 12- weeks pregnant today and our baby girl in due on 2 May 2017. Jenny Li, your gender pulse diagnosis at 9 weeks was correct – we are indeed having a little girl. I would like to express my sincere appreciation and gratitude to Jenny Li, who played a vital role with my fertility to not only prepare my body for the conception of our beloved baby, but also ensure that I hold on to our little miracle.

Jenny furthermore helped me to successfully lower my anti-depressant medication dosage from 150mg down to 30mg per day. I never thought that this was possible due to being on this medication for the last 10 years.

Thank you Jenny for your support and genuinely caring. You are amazing!

The little Purell’s baby was born on 09/01/2017, from a home birth and Mr. Purell delivered the baby himself!

What his mum S. Purell said on 09/09/2016:

It took us a long time to conceive our first child and when we decided to try for our second again it took us a long time, a year without any luck. So I thought I would give acupuncture a go. Jenny was very informative, easy to talk to and caring, and provided lots of advice. Within 3 months of a mixture of acupuncture and herbal medicine we had finally fallen pregnant.

I then continued with the acupuncture up until I was 12 weeks pregnant. We’re now anticipating the arrival of our baby in January 2017. Jenny predicted it would be a boy at 8 weeks after the pulse diagnosis and she was right!
I would definitely suggest anyone trying to conceive to contact Jenny and give acupuncture a go. Thanks Jenny!

Baby Ashlynn was born on 26/12/2017, from a natural birth 🙂

What her mum D.X said on 06/01/2017:

As a healthy woman with no apparent fertility problems, my only concern is my age as 37 years old. In our asian society, I’m grouped in high risk pregancy. As a first baby pregancy, I want to make sure my body will be ready for it and help improve my chances to conceive. I was referred by friend to Jenny as she has full of experience especially in fertility acupuncture treatment.

I can honestly say it was one of the best decision I have made throughout my entire journey to conceive. Jenny was really friendly and privided a lot of useful knowledge apart from treatment. I found Jenny to be friendly, positive and professional. I will continue to use Jenny in the future and I will happy recommend her to family and friends with confidence.

Baby Evan was born on 23/11/2016, from a natural birth 🙂

What his mum A.R said on 26/05/2016:

I had been trying to become pregnant for a year, so I went to the doctor and since we were fine, she recommended that I try acupuncture before continuing with any further tests. I had never tried acupuncture before, and had heard good things about it, so I was very interested in giving it a go.

I found Jenny to be so lovely, easy to talk to and very informative. The whole experience was very relaxing, pain free and she made me feel nice and calm. I visited her once a week and I began to notice I had more energy, was sleeping better and I worked on trying to relax more.

Then a few months later, I fell pregnant! I continued to have acupuncture throughout my first trimester, which helped me feel great with barely any morning sickness. I am very grateful of Jenny’s caring support during this whole time. Thank you.

Baby Conner was born on 07/10/2016, 2 days before the due date 🙂

This was what his mum Concepcion said on 30/04/2016:

I’ve been struggling to get pregnant for almost 9 years. I had one natural pregnancy where unfortunately I miscarried. And then, I had 2 IVF cycles with a total of 6 embryo transfers in which one resulted to positive but eventually miscarried at 6 weeks. It was a difficult journey that lead me to try accupuncture.

Jenny was recommended by my Osteopath. During my first session with her she initially checked my toungue and she noticed that it’s a bit pale indicating possible energy and blood defficiency. And that could probably explain why I had a natural pregnancy but there’s not enough blood circulation to sustain viability. And so, I had the accupuncture treatment with moxa. After the treatment, I felt something on my ovaries like a pinching sensation. I had a couple of sessions and before I went to the third session I just wanted to test if I’m pregnant because my period is also a bit delayed. And to my surprise, I was indeed pregnant!

Jenny had been very supportive during the early stage of my pregnancy, giving me some tips on how to take care of myself during that critical stage. I highly recommend Jenny, she’s very knowledgeable and experienced in the use of accupuncture to help with infertility issues.

Thanks again Jenny for you have been instrumental in making our dream come true 🙂

Karla’s baby girl Isabella was born on 28th June 2015 that was a few days early than the due date. What an active girl! Can’t wait to come out! Congratulations to the whole family XOXO

Here is what Karla said about her experience of having Isabella: “I decided to try acupuncture because I was having very bad headaches, and was also very stressed. I started seeing Jenny and right away I knew I was in good hands – in a few weeks there was already improvement. I was also trying to get pregnant and she focused the acupuncture on this as well. I am currently 25 weeks pregnant and baby and I are very well. I completely recommend Jenny, she is very professional, but also kind and compassionate.”

I am a Registered Nurse working in a Primary Health Setting. I was pregnant with my 2nd baby with having Gestational Diabetes and my due date was the 4th June 2014. I was still working full time as a nurse so I was on my feet a lot and having to monitor my blood sugar levels. My maternity leave was not till mid May so I had along way to go.

When I was 28 weeks pregnant, due to a previous rupture of my Achilles tendon, I started to experience aching, sore feet. So I started researching the internet for therapist that were trained in dealing with pregnant women and with massage to solve this problem as well as acupuncture. (I had in the past received a foot massage and it made my feet worse so I was hesitate for this again). However, I came across Jenny Li Natural Harmony Clinic based in New Lynn and there was an attraction to her advertisement so the next day, I gave her a phone call after work as my feet were so sore and she was able to fit me in with her. I was very relieved and I did not know what to expect from her clinic.

I arrived to her clinic based in Club Physical New Lynn and it was a small, private area and with warm welcoming when I knocked on the door. Jenny Li was very friendly and lead me into a room where I sat down on a comfy chair and her work colleague was going to attend to my feet. The worked very professionally and after the foot massage, I was so relaxed that I was able to sleep properly that night.

After the treatment, Jenny Li came in to see me and we started discussing my pregnancy and she suggested to me about acupuncture and how it could help me for natural delivery which I really wanted as my first delivery was an Emergency C section. So I was keen for this treatment as well as preparing my mind and body for a natural delivery. Jenny suggested to me to phone her after my next scan to see how baby was position and the weight of baby as well.

About 2 weeks later, I phoned Jenny that baby was breeched position so she said it was beneficial to start treatment now so she could turn baby before she was too big. So we started straight away with this technique to help turn baby. I would see Jenny for this twice a week for about 45 mins a session. During receiving this treatment, I felt confident in what Jenny was doing and she was very knowledgeable in her field of work as well as being a qualified Doctor in Obstetrics, Gynecology and Pediatrics so I knew Jenny knew what she was doing and also, coming from a holistic approach, it made the experience more therapeutic for me. Jenny not only focused on my medical condition but also, on my well being and my mind with sleeping etc especially when you are heavily pregnant. When I had my next scan which was 4 weeks later, baby had turned head downwards and in a good position for delivery.

Overall, I was happy with Jenny Li treatment and her approach to me being a client as well as having a health professional background, I was able to understand what Jenny was saying in regards to terminology and that she was professional in her approach and I felt culturally safe when I was treated by Jenny coming from a Maori ethnicity. I would highly recommend Jenny for future treatments and I would see her again for my next pregnancy.

21/11/2014

Two weeks later after having my second baby, I was finding my breast milk was still not coming through fully as I had problems with my first baby and ended up partially breast feeding and formula. However, I wanted to fully breast feed this baby and then I had gotten in touch with Jenny. She came over to my house for a visit and advised me a few ways to help the milk supply to be secreted more flowing and to reduce milk build up in my breasts. I did this regime for 1 week and now I am still successfully breast feeding my baby who is nearly 6 months of age.

I was really helpful with this advice by Jenny and thankful, that I had received it.

Jenny is amazing and always highly recommend to friends from day-to day treatments to specialised eg. pregnant treatments.

I have been seeing Jenny for almost 2 years and seen her for cupping when unwell, acupuncture for sprained ankle that nothing else helped. Then the latest was reflexology for my pregnancy which helped with stress and fluid build up. Believe overall how I managed to work right up in pregnancy with ankles only swelling in last week.

Jenny is the first to call. Contact her today your body will thank you.

We had trouble conceiving and after various tests were told we had “unexplained infertility”. Conventional fertility treatment was going to be very expensive for us, so I researched other options, including Chinese medicine / acupuncture, and Jenny was recommended to me. After a detailed conversation (and no invasive tests!) Jenny had a diagnosis and treatment plan. I saw her over the course of several months and am pleased to report I’m now 14 weeks pregnant.

I thought Jenny was very thorough in considering all aspects of my health that might affect my condition, plus she explained her treatment well, which I found helpful in understanding why it was important for me to continue.

Jenny was initially recommended to me by another acupuncturist who was going on holiday. From our first appointment she was professional but also very friendly. She was always happy to answer any questions or concerns I may have had with my treatment. Jenny was also very generous with her time and resources, lending me equipment to use at home and is still checking how I’m going after finishing treatment.

And I’m happy to say that her treatment plan have worked, given my IVF cycle was a success and we are expecting our baby girl in May.I would happily recommend Jenny to any of my friends.

Briar was born on the 6th of June, she was a very healthy 8lb 4 or 3.75kg and is growing like a weed.

Kat Boys, Riverhead(Results are varied from person to person)

I went to see Jenny after 2 failed IVF cycles. I had been tested by the fertility clinic as having a low egg reserve meaning that I would not be able to produce as many eggs as the clinic would have liked to ensure success. Before going through my third IVF cycle I decided after some research to try acupuncture to give me the best chance of pregnancy.

Jenny worked with me every week for up to 4 months before and then during my IVF cycle. Jenny is very approachable, and I was very comfortable with her. She was very thorough and genuinely cared about my progress every step of the way. Lo and behold, this time I had a successful IVF pregnancy and I am now 12 weeks pregnant. I have not seen Jenny for 8 weeks since pregnant and no longer needed to see her, however she has kept in touch with me, checking in my feelings and making sure that everything was going well. It was great having the peace of mind knowing that by going through acupuncture with Jenny, I would absolutely recommend Jenny’s acupuncture for anyone. She is extremely knowledgeable and has a lot of experience with her craft which comes across very easily when she is working with you.

Thank you so much Jenny for your help. I’m overjoyed to tell you that I have so much more energy – I can now play with my children without running out of breath in 2minutes. I also had a lot of trouble getting a full night’s sleep because I have sensitive hearing – now I wake up ready to start my day and less grumpy with my children and partner who would all love to say “Thank You”. I feel completely different after seeing you – your treatment relaxes me and has made me a better person and a better mother.

I have also heard from the hospital for my 5th round of egg donation. Based on my blood results from my last round they were going to advise that I should not do another donation, however after seeing you for a few treatments and getting my bloodtests done again they are more than happy with the results and will let me cycle now.

10/11/2011

After the first round of egg donations for this couple only resulted in 4eggs, 1 which was a fresh transfer and 1 which was a frozen transfer the fertility staff discussed it and decided that it would be ok for me to cycle again because the egg quality was good… just minimal numbers that’s all. They sent a letter to my intended couple and a copy to myself basically stating that this would be their last publicly funded cycle regardless of whether or not I produced any eggs this next round. This didn’t really instill a lot of confidence in me. I also found out from the clinic that my AMH (Anti-Mullerian Hormone) count was very low 1.33. It had dropped from above 2 early 2010 to 1.33 in Dec last year. I’m pleased to advise that they actually collected 11 yesterday. As of this morning 9 of the 11 fertilised…and they (both the clinic and my intended parents are astonished). In fact my very first round back in 2009 gave the same number of eggs and fertilisation rate and I believe as well as my intended parents that accupuncture was the answer.

Richelle C, New Lynn(* Results are varied from person to person)

I was pregnant with my 2nd child suffered very bad pregnancy sickness so my doctor recommended Jenny Li for acupuncture. I then was amazed that my severe nausea and vomiting would subside after each treatment for 2 – 3 days at a time, this meant I could go to work and function normally for this period. I continued to see Jenny until I was 18 weeks pregnant, she made a huge difference to me and I am very grateful to her.
