If you want to be Prego, you gotta listen !!!
I've known Adrienne for some time now and she is definitely a fertility goddess. Now, before I met Adrienne I thought knowing when your period came was all I needed to know about my lady bits. But No, there is so much more, sooo much to know that the doctors don't tell you and information that can be hard to find on your own. That's why I'm excited for more episodes. I've personally seen her success in getting women pregnant through Chinese medicine and I'm glad she decided to reach even more women !
Useful and Relatable!!!
I am so happy to have found this podcast! Chinese medicine has helped me so much with menstrual problems in the past and I can't wait to hear more about how it can help me in my journey to conceive. I think this will help bridge the gap between what my Acupuncturist tells me and what I'm supposed to interpret from it. So excited for the next episode!!!
Useful for Men Too!
As a man who's wife is undergoing fertility treatment, this podcast is helping me understand the "ttc" process she is going through. I'm looking forward to hearing more episodes and seeing her web content grow. In the age of information technology, ignorance is a choice. A supportive and informed partner can make all the difference.
