I purchased the Acupressure for IVF/FET Transfer and Implantation video from Positively Fertile in April 2014. My husband and I had been trying to conceive for two years prior to that; naturally at first and then we went through two rounds of IUI, an IVF cycle using my fresh eggs and then an IVF cycle using my frozen eggs, all of which were unsuccessful.
Throughout my fertility journey, I have been practicing TCM with both herbs (on and off) and weekly acupuncture sessions so am well versed in the ancient practice of acupoint stimulation and was eager to try all means available to us for a final FET using the remaining 3 frozen embryos we had. I began using this video 3 times a day starting a few days before the transfer (on April 15th) including the day of the actual transfer and then continued for the 4 days afterward with the post-protocol. I am happy to share the news that I am now in my sixth week of pregnancy.
What I liked most about using the video was the feeling of control it gave me during a time when there is so much uncertainty. It empowered me in a very positive way because I knew that by adding it to my over-all get-pregnant ‘tool-kit’ (including things such as a healthy diet, appropriate vitamins and supplements, yoga, mediation and other stress-busting techniques) I was doing all I could to ensure a successful outcome and I found a great amount of peace and comfort from that. I would recommend this program to anyone going through an IVF/FET procedure or while trying to conceive naturally.

Having trouble conceiving has been a crazy experience that neither my husband nor I had expected. The relationship exercises strengthened us as a couple. I did the Emotional Wellness Workbook at night to calm my anxiety before bed. It released pent up emotions and focused my mind on how strong and healthy I’ve become.

I joined her program as sort of a last-ditch effort to try and do everything that I could to get pregnant, not necessarily believing it would work. Regardless of whether or not I was pregnant, I was in a much better place emotionally. Lo and behold, several months after I started her program, I became pregnant. Do I think this was the silver bullet?—no, of course not. I had a different doctor and used a different IVF protocol. That said, I really would like to emphasize that my mental state for the first several rounds of ART compared with the last IVF round that worked was completely different. That difference was owed in significant portion to working with Heidi, and I truly feel that working with her through acupuncture and her online program helped us to get to where we are today—a couple of months away from expecting our first baby boy.

After using the acupressure protocols 2x a day and keeping up with the program I got pregnant and had a beautiful baby girl! I began to look into Heidi’s programs to take more control over my situation on a day to day basis. I loved that Heidi’s program was organized around different phases of the cycle for relaxation, diet and support for the body & mind.
Heidi was always there to answer questions. I used the exercises and the pregnancy acupressure protocol throughout my pregnancy. I would recommend Heidi’s program to anyone – especially if you feel like you need added support and a sense of control. The program gave me confidence about building a good environment for the baby now growing in my belly. When I found out I was pregnant Heidi was one of the first people I told – I thank her & her program so much – it was worth every penny.

I have been doing the acupressure videos each night since October. I have been doing the video according to where I am in my cycle. I have noticed great changes in my cycle. They are not nearly as painful as they used to be. I also look forward to the videos each night as they are a huge part of my self care routine. They are so relaxing and they feel so good! I feel more calm and able to flow through my cycle with greater ease.
I am very excited to continue with these videos and learn more from the program. My husband and I have been trying to become pregnant for five and a half years. We have tried many, many different treatments, programs, diets, and more. I feel like the acupressure videos have by far been the most helpful piece of our fertility journey. Thank you for teaching, sharing, and bringing hope to our lives.

I am 44 years old and I wanted to let you know that I had a healthy baby girl on March 20th, 2015. I used your acupressure program videos on to Thicken Your Lining and to Support Early Pregnancy. Every month I had a period I would go back to your audio’s or videos to keep my mind positive. I really feel that your acupressure videos truly helped me become pregnant. I did go to fertility doctors in my area and it was usually never a positive experience. I plan to have another baby and I will continue to view all this information again on a daily basis. Thank you!

The program made me feel not only like I had more control over my life with the struggles of infertility, where I felt there was so little control. It gave me a sense of accomplishment that I was doing something positive for my fertility, rather than focusing on the negative. It really helps you focus on a positive path with your fertility. It puts your mind in the right place, which is so important. It’s so easy to go down the wrong path when you’re trying to conceive.

I am 38 weeks pregnant, with twins, and that was my goal! One of the hardest parts about carrying 2 is keeping them in there, and Michelle came highly recommended to me due to her phenomenal success in this department…so why not! She used to be a Labor and Delivery Nurse which added to my comfort because I was able to ask questions relating to my future C section. I have to believe she is solely the reason that I have reached my goal.
Michelle is professional, genuinely friendly and I would recommend her to anyone pregnant or thinking of getting pregnant.

I began working with Michelle in January of 2015 after experiencing two losses. I was seeking a proactive alternative to help my husband and I achieve the much desired outcome of a successful pregnancy. I had been to several OB-GYNs who provided basic care, but seemed apathetic to our concerns and couldn’t provide any explanations for our issue.
After my first meeting with Michelle, I knew I had finally found the right person to help us. Michelle is much more than an acupuncturist – she provided a ton of education and a proactive plan to help combat our pregnancy loss issues.
After a few lifestyle changes and regular sessions, I’m pleased to report that we’re expecting our first child in a few short weeks! Along with her expertise in acupuncture, Michelle also has a background as a Labor & Delivery nurse! She has been an invaluable partner in supporting a healthy pregnancy and has answered every silly ‘first-timer’ question – she’s truly the missing piece to well-rounded prenatal care.

The first thing my husband and I noticed when we met Michelle was how positive she was about helping us. She reassured us that there was no reason why we couldn’t get pregnant, but it would take some work. We needed to “detox” my body to get all the hormones and medications out of my system, and most importantly get rid of the two ovarian cysts.
Michelle was extremely diligent about taking down all of my medical history. We went over all the medications and health issues that I have had over the years. I felt like Michelle was really focused on the big picture (getting me healthy), and not just about the pregnancy. When we left the office after our consultation, our faith had been restored that we could indeed, still get pregnant the natural way. We were feeling very optimistic once again!
I started seeing Michelle regularly and within a month or two my cysts were gone! She had me change my diet, added supplements into my daily routine, and set up appointments to see her on a regular basis. Michelle is very knowledgeable about her trade, and her confidence in what she does can only make you believe. She really cares about her patients and genuinely wants to help them.
It took a while to get my body back to a healthy state, and low and behold, we got pregnant! It was the best 40th birthday present I could have received. I am now 34 weeks pregnant and I have had a very healthy and easy pregnancy.

I started the TFW program in February of 2016 and have been doing it ever since. Benefits that I have seen are cycle regulation, decreased anxiety and stress, and the best of all benefits – pregnancy!
As an integrative medicine Physician Assistant working in a Women’s Health, I ALWAYS recommend acupuncture. Studies show it not only helps increase pregnancy rates, it helps with reducing stress and miscarriage. As someone who is starting her fertility journey and someone who gets weekly acupuncture sessions anyway, the TFW program was the perfect addendum to my acupuncture sessions.
The TFW program has made me feel that there is something in my power, in my hands literally that I can do that I know not only works, but is rooted in thousands of years of traditional Chinese Medicine. Many of us or already doing supplements, yoga, meditation, cleanses to enhance our fertility. To me the TFW program is perfect as a stand alone program or as an addendum to your fertility protocol.”

I’m 16 weeks pregnant and everything is going great so far. I had an ultrasound at 7 weeks and heard the heartbeat. Yay! Measuring right at what I expected!
Thank you so, so much for everything the last year plus. I’ve learned so much about myself as a woman. Even more important, I’ve been able to really take charge of my health and fertility because of your care, guidance and empathy. You are such a rockstar!

I just want to share that I joined the Total Fertility Wellness™ program and I LOVE IT!!! I have been trying to conceive for 5 1/2 years and have invested much time, energy and money in many different things. Although it all has been worth it and part of the journey to holding my baby… I want to share that I really LOVE this program and am so grateful that I stumbled upon it. I really feel that that what I am learning is allowed me to “actively” be a part of creating the healthiest eggs, womb, mindset and heartset to conceive.
Thank you Heidi Brockmyre for all the time and love you put into your program and to each of us.

I started Heidi’s acupressure program about 5 months ago. I faithfully did it twice a day. I bought it because I wanted to improve my uterine lining, my FSH levels and improve my cycle overall. My AMH was 4.4 and I was diagnosed with Diminished Ovarian Reserve.
After using Heidi’s program, my lining went from 4mm to 8mm, my FSH levels went down from 18 to 11. My period before lasted only one day with very light bleeding. After just 3 months using the program, I had a normal period. Her program is easy to follow and I love the convenience of it, that you can do it anytime you want at home.
Also I followed her dietary guidelines, took supplements and herbs and I am happy to report that I am pregnant. I also did a Male Fertility Protocol on my husband every day and his sperm motility went from 1% to 35% in just 4 months. Without Heidi’s program I wouldn’t be pregnant today. It took us 8 years to get pregnant, I had 3 failed IVFs and thanks to Heidi’s program I got pregnant naturally. The doctor told me that without an egg donor, I will never have a baby! Thank you Heidi for everything.

I am now pregnant after a successful transfer! My hcg levels are high! I am 38 years old. I had 2 consecutive miscarriages when trying to conceive naturally… I signed up shortly after my second miscarriage because I was feeling very helpless… Your sequences helped during each stage of treatment and helped prepare my body for the retrieval and transfer. Your acupressure videos are easy to do… The videos are short so they are not a big time investment.
I downloaded your pre and post transfer videos to my phone and did them right before and after my transfer at the clinic! This calmed my nerves and I felt empowered to be able to help with my transfer. What was most helpful to me (and still is) is it gave me an active role in my treatment. Instead of just waiting for the next stage/test/procedure, I was helping… I would like to add that you have been an incredible resource. I emailed you several times with questions when I first got the program and you were very patient and responsive. Thank you for creating it and sharing your knowledge with the world.

Since starting my supplements and Total Fertility Wellness program, I have lost 10lbs and I am feeling great. This is the best I have felt in almost 2 years since my fertility journey began.
I had an unexpected event yesterday. I ordered my injectables for my medicated cycle coming up and stocked up on supplements! Then… I took another pregnancy test when I got home from work. POSITIVE!!!
I’ve only been doing the supplements for 2.5 months and the TFW protocols for 5 weeks after 3 losses and a failed IVF cycle. Praying this is the healthy embryo that brings us our rainbow baby!

After nearly three years of trying to conceive, at 39 years old, I am overjoyed to say that I am pregnant after 2.5 cycles using Total Fertility Wellness and weekly acupuncture treatments with Heidi. Using Total Fertility Wellness left me feeling so empowered each day knowing that I was contributing to creating a healthy body for pregnancy.
The one thing that really helped each month when my period arrived was something that Heidi said – “While ultimately the goal is pregnancy, one of the stepping stones to get there is a healthy cycle, so if your period arrives, we can still find successes in the improvement of our cycle.” This took me off the emotional roller coaster and devastation I felt when my period arrived.
I am now using Heidi’s program, Total Pregnancy Wellness, and greatly enjoy the peace of mind and empowerment I experience by having additional acupressure videos to help support my pregnancy, as well as manage the discomforts!
I am so grateful for Heidi’s online acupressure programs and highly recommend them to anyone!

“Just wanted to let you know I found your website about 1.5 years ago. After two failed IVF’s and IUI’s, 2 early miscarriages, low AMH (less than .10) and diagnosed with Diminished Ovarian Reserve, I conceived naturally at 41 years old and now have a beautiful baby boy!
Your information was positive and informative. I loved your webinar and website. I love what you do and I wish I lived closer so I could thank you in person. Your attitude inspired me to change my way of thinking towards fertility from feeling deficient and infertile.”

While Heidi's acupuncture services are based in Eastern philosophies, she certainly does not discount the Western approach to infertility, and was extremely helpful in providing resources, recommendations, and pre and post-IVF treatments.
I started going to her in April (every week) and after a few visits she educated me on various herbs, diet recommendations, etc. She also has a ton of insight into doctors and specialists.
