Western medicine has its limitations and when you go through infertility and/or a high-risk pregnancy you know exactly how little science actually knows about reproductive health.
The problem is, doctors only advise couples to try evidence-based therapies to help them get pregnant or to help them have a healthy pregnancy.
While there is plenty of reason to follow that advice, solely relying on what research has proven to be helpful is limiting your choices on safe alternatives to try to help you achieve your family-building goals.
