*Our journey to conceiving our daughter was kind of a long one. Our story isn’t the worst story I’ve heard but it also wasn’t the easiest.

After trying a little over a year to conceive, I decided to seek medical help to see what was going on.  In December 2014, I started seeing a reproductive medicine doctor. After an enormous amount of testing and money I was diagnosed with stage three endometriosis. In January of 2015, I had surgery to remove the scarring from the endometriosis.

The doctor who performed my surgery told me the next step was IVF. I wasn’t really accepting that at that point in time so I decided to try another doctor who worked magic on a friend.

After being monitored by him and going through a few rounds of <fertility drug> and IUI’s that were unsuccessful, my next step again was IVF.  I had heard that acupuncture had worked for some people and thought to myself it wouldn’t hurt to try it!

Vonderau familyI must admit I was not a believer at first but quickly changed my opinion. After consulting with Dawn on Chinese herbs, diet, and acupuncture treatment I conceived shortly thereafter. My first visit to see Dawn was on September 4th, 2015.  I notified Dawn on September 25th, 2015 I was pregnant.

However, my treatment didn’t stop there! I saw Dawn once a week for my entire pregnancy. I truly believe I had a wonderful pregnancy because of my visits to Dawn. I always looked forward to coming in to see her too! Dawn takes her time with her patients and truly listens to them. I continue to see Dawn to this day for post-pregnancy treatment. She’s helped me with breastfeeding and also ideas to help with our daughter.

I feel like I owe Dawn the world and truly thank her from the bottom of my heart for giving us the gift of life.
