Join us for our free National Infertility Awareness Week events. Pre-registration is requested.
Free Fertility Assessment/AMH Event (Saturday, April 29th, 10 am – 2 PM)
This Free Fertility Assessment is intended to help women better understand where they are on the curve and better understand the options available to them.
Participants will complete a brief questionnaire about their gynecological, obstetrical, fertility and medical history and undergo a blood draw for an Anti Mullerian Hormone (AMH) test. AMH testing is considered to be a strong indicator of fertility potential.
Once the result of the AMH blood tests are received (about 2 weeks) The Center will follow up with participants with a scheduled fifteen minute (15) phone call from a member of The Center’s clinical team to discuss the questionnaire and AMH results. All this will be free of charge.

Time Out! Couples Session (Saturday, April 29th, 3-5 PM)
The journey towards becoming parents can be challenging and at times stressful. With all the doctors’ appointments, testing, etc. it can be difficult to focus on each other, as a couple during this time. The Center for Advanced Reproductive Services is happy to provide couples with a really special, fun time to focus on just the two of you! This is a chance to put everything else aside for a couple of hours and connect with one another. The session will focus on breathing, touch, guided meditation and simple yoga.
Community Fertility Acupuncture (Sunday, April 30th, 2-4 PM)
SORRY, THIS EVENT IS FULL
Fertility Community Acupuncture is a unique way of receiving acupuncture where you are treated in a community setting. The intention is to support you in a balancing treatment that has the potential to optimize your fertility outcome. You are individually treated in this shared state and this healing atmosphere is created by everyone who is getting treated as much as by the practitioner. Points on scalp, ear and below elbow and knees may be used to treat the whole body. In this particular workshop Helen BetGivargis, Licensed Acupuncturist will be guiding you through a fertility meditation with the sound of soothing Tibetan Bowls and music, as you are relaxing in your treatment. You have a choice of sitting on a chair or laying on a yoga mat. This is a good opportunity to stop and relax in an acupuncture group healing that its main focus is enhancing Fertility.
Please come in loose comfortable clothing, so you can easily be treated. Make sure you are well hydrated and are not too hungry or full. Feel free to bring a pillow and a small blanket if you would like more comforting support.
