What To Expect from Your Sessions

Background & Assessment

Your naturopathic appointment begins with a thorough assessment of your current fertility status and establishment of your health goals. If medical testing has already been conducted or you have received treatments in the past, we will review all this information together to get a clear picture of your health. If limited or no assessments have been done, we come up with a clear plan for testing in order to get answers to your reproductive health concerns.

Individualized Treatment Plan

Even before extensive assessment & interventions have been fully completed, we can get started on your individualized treatment plan. Meaning in our initial appointment together, you will leave with actionable steps to better your fertility. As more information comes to light, we can tailor your plan even further, so it targets your specific issues.

What to Expect Along the Way

During your initial & follow-up appointments, we will not only discuss your reproductive health but review topics such as your diet, energy, sleep, digestion, stress & other health concerns for well-rounded holistic care. Questions are always encouraged! Part of your health plan is patient education so you can feel more empowered & motivated to take the necessary steps to achieving your goals.

IVF alone is not a guarantee, let’s improve your chances!

Unfortunately, IVF does not guarantee a successful full-term pregnancy. Even if eggs are retrieved, live birth rates per first embryo transfer decrease significantly with age (41% success to 22% as patients approach 40 years of age).

There are many factors beyond age that can negatively impact IVF success, such as certain medical conditions, metabolic health & lifestyle factors, just to name a few. Even with transferring healthy embryos, pregnancy is not guaranteed. Prior to transferring viable embryos, we need to optimize the health of the patient, the uterine environment and address any health concerns that can impact success.

It takes 3 months to improve both egg and sperm quality. For some, 3 months can feel like a long wait for that long-anticipated goal of pregnancy & parenthood. Instead think of this step as reversing time and an opportunity for minimizing heartbreak as you invest your all into the IVF process.

Importance of nutrition and supplementation 

There are many studies demonstrating the benefits of nutrition & supplementation for both unassisted & assisted fertility outcomes. Those following a fertility supportive diet have been shown to have a 66% lower risk of infertility related to ovulatory disorders and a 27% lower risk of infertility due to other causes.

The right supplement for you is a supportive tool. For example, myo-inositol which has numerous studies demonstrating the benefits for PCOS has also been shown to increase the clinical pregnancy & live birth rates of those undergoing IVF.

There is no “one-size fits all” approach to fertility optimization. Every patient’s treatment plan is unique. There is not 1 specific supplement, test, or food every patient should be having.

Everyone has their own unique challenges. Prior to supplementation & dietary changes it is also important to ensure what you are implementing is safe, effective and does not negative impact other aspects of your collaborative medical plan.

Look Beyond Your Diagnosis – Optimize Your Fertility Outcomes

Areas such as nutrient levels, inflammation, autoimmunity, metabolic health and extensive hormonal testing can provide answers beyond just the standard fertility testing. Even something as simple as correcting Vitamin D deficiency (a very common deficiency in North Americans) can improve sperm parameters and increase both unassisted fertility and IVF pregnancy rates.

We can work together to advocate for more inclusive testing from your fertility clinic such as blood clotting disorders, genetic testing and immunological factors. As well, discuss medication options used to support egg quality, uterine lining support, sperm parameters that may have yet to be offered to you.

Sanjana is the best! I cannot thank her enough for her services throughout my pregnancy journey. The Accupuncture sessions and her knowledge of which herbs can help you conceive is remarkable. If you are having trouble conceiving, look no further. Sanjana has treated me like family, has been very accommodating and alongside her services she makes your pregnancy journey very relaxing. She is the best, and I highly recommend this clinic to everybody.

After 6 years of infertility and doing some reading about acupuncture I booked my first session on a whim the day of our IVF transfer. I immediately felt so at peace as Sajana was so knowledgeable and caring. I feel she played a huge role in the success of our first IVF transfer and we will be forever grateful to her.

I had an amazing experience with Sanjana. I decided to try acupuncture after a year of trying to conceive naturally. Sanjana is extremely knowledgeable and was so incredibly positive. She worked in combination with my second IUI procedure and I am so happy to share that I am pregnant after my initial sessions! Sanjana, thank you for all your faith and guidance. I am so grateful to have found you.

She is extremely knowledgeable and was able to discuss options for my management of pcos and alternatives compared to regular medicine. I have been fortunate to have met her and been treated by her - she is lovely person and very warm and easy to talk to about your concerns and very easy to reach at all the times! Highly recommend!

I found Sanjana when I was diagnosed with low-lying placenta and told that my only option for delivery was a planned c section. All of my doctors were very pessimistic that the placenta would move so late in the pregnancy. Sanjana provided optimism and hope, which helped me mentally move through the 3rd trimester. We started accupuncture sessions, herbal medicine and moxibustion at 34 weeks when my placental distance from the cervix was only 4mm. By 36 weeks it was 10mm and by 38 weeks we measured at 19mm and I have been approved to trial for labour!! This is the absolute best case outcome and I believe Sanjana's expertise and treatment played a big part in getting us here. I am so glad I found Sanjana!

I found Sanjana at a time when I was feeling absolutely hopeless about my fertility health; having fibroids, endometriosis and adenomyosis. Her assessment was very thorough and I felt heard. It's amazing how hard that is to find. She takes her time and ensures you actually understand what she is talking about. She is so knowledgeable and patient, I wholeheartedly believe in her and TCM. After my first visit I was feeling so much better with all her recommendations; acupuncture and choice of herbs.I would recommend any woman having fertility related issues to go to White Birch Clinic. I know my problem isn't a quick fix but I already feel so much better...So much hope and feeling inspired to get better. Thank you Sanjana! I am so grateful I found you!

I have been seeing Shilpa Gupta for years and with her Thai Massage (let's call it stretching) she helps me from getting broken and this allows me to enjoy cycling year round as well as work on other strength programs as I get older. Thanks for all the years of help.
Shilpa is my go-to massage therapist. She’s deep, but relaxing and effective, all at the same time! 5 stars X10!!!

I went to this clinic for pregnancy morning sickness in hopes the acupuncture would help. To my disbelief I left my first appointment feeling better then when I arrived! Sanjana is very knowledgeable and the clinic is a calming and relaxing place. Never thought I would enjoy acupuncture but after a couple sessions my symptoms started resolving. Very grateful for their service and kindness!

I started seeing Sanjana for fertility a few months ago. I had difficulty getting pregnant for a number of years and had recurring miscarriages. After 3 months of treatments, I was able to conceive naturally. We continued treatments into the first trimester to support the pregnancy. She also helped me with first trimester nausea.Sanjana’s experience and guidance throughout the process was invaluable. She is very knowledgeable when it comes to women’s health. I always felt I was in good hands. Thank you!

Her recommendations on lifestyle and dietary changes were practical and worked well for me. Also, the clinic's entire aura is soothing and the staff is exceptional. Would recommend Sanjana to anyone!

I didn't realize how much PMS symptoms were affecting my life until I started acupuncture and TCM treatments with Sanjana. Prior to seeing her, I would be routinely fatigued, bloated and generally uncomfortable for many days before an expected period. Over a short time, and with regular treatment, Sanjana's holistic approach to treatment (acupuncture, diet, TCM medicine) helped to rid me of all PMS symptoms, while improving my sleep, energy levels and general well being. Most recently, Sanjana helped to rid my body of some lingering symptoms after a COVID-19 infection. Sanjana is a true healer, a life changer and a kind, compassionate soul and the clinic is a beautiful, relaxing place to focus on one's well being.
I was in visiting my son in Mississauga (from Ottawa), and my knee had been very sore for a long time. My son suggested Birch Tree Clinic as he goes there. I was so glad to have taken him up on the offer. Sanjana was very patient, caring and supportive of my condition. She assessed me thoroughly and offered me the opportunity to try acupuncture. She was very careful as to where the needles were inserted, making sure that I was not in discomfort. I was very appreciative of her caring nature. I felt like a bit of a pin cushion, but it really worked for me. I felt a little better after the first session. But by the end of the fourth session my pain was gone. I am so grateful to Sanjana. I'm back in Ottawa now, but but when I go back to Mississauga I will definitely go again to get more treatments for other areas of my body as well. Thank you Sanjana for taking care of my knee. Another thing she did during the assessment was that she gave recommendations on my diet. She said that there was dampness in my body. At first I was skeptical, but when I followed her suggestions that’s when I realized she knew what she was saying. And I felt better as I saw the results. Overall I would recommend you trying out the treatment and find out for yourselves the benefits of TCM.

She helped me understand how small lifestyle changes can make a big difference in your overall well-being.She is treating me for psoriasis and hormonal imbalance. It’s been only couple of weeks and I already see a huge improvement. I can’t thank her enough!

Shilpa and Sanjana both are amazing practitioners. I took my teenage daughter for the first time for massage therapy with Shilpa and she loves it. Shilpa is so nice, made her comfortable and gave her tips for stretching which she really enjoyed. I had my appointment with Sanjana and never had such a detailed intake before. Sanjana is truly passionate about her work and the treatments through acupuncture, and she did educate me on so many natural ways of healing. Thanks to both of you. Keep up the good work!

It's the first time I felt that the therapist is actually listening to me and working exactly how I wanted. I felt so relaxed that I literally wanted to take a nap right there lol.......

I have been dealing with Migraines for past two years and have tried medications but it keeps coming back. When I started seeing Sanjana, I was amazed at her knowledge of the problem and her treatment protocol have been extremely beneficial to me and have resulted in both temporary and more permanent improvement of my symptoms.
I suffer from chronic pain in my legs for many years now and have had treatments from physios and chiros but the pain always returned after a gap with more intensity. I resorted to acupuncture this time since acupuncture had helped me with my fertility issues in the past. Sanjana listened to me carefully and began the treatment diligently, while explaining to me her diagnosis and her treatment strategy. She never rushes the process. She takes a holistic approach to treatment and advised me to eat a balanced diet supplemented with good quality multivitamins. I felt the improvement in my pain after just two sessions and will continue to seek treatments from her. The clinic is more like a spa unlike other acupuncture /massage places I have been to.
