Angela Le has been a gift and a blessing during the years of my quest to have a second child, which has been one of the most emotionally and physically challenging periods of my life. She is a remarkable presence, and a superlative practitioner, and her wisdom and perspective helped me transform the way in which I was approaching the treatment process. When I met Angela, who had been highly recommended by the doctors at Columbia University’s Center for Women’s Reproductive Care, I was in the midst of what would become my third failed IVF cycle. Like so many women, and couples, who are confronted with the unexpected loss of their fertility, I felt overwhelmed, disbelieving, and desperate

I came to Angela one year ago at 43 after my first failed IVF cycle.  It was a challenging introduction to the fertility world, which left me confused and overwhelmed.  Bombarded by conflicting information, I wasn’t sure what to do next.  Angela listened with kindness and empathy. The truth is my work with Angela far exceeded acupuncture and fertility goals. I am not the same person I was a year ago and that is largely due to Angela.  She partnered with me through a very challenging process of becoming a parent but there is so much more.  Infertility invited me to look deeper at the quality of my life and what I want to create for my new family, a chance to do things differently.  Words cannot express how grateful I am.

I was at my wits end when I first met Angela. I was introduced by a mutual friend and I cancelled three times before I finally went to see her. I am a single woman who had been trying to get pregnant on my own for nine months with two unsuccessful pregnancies under my belt.  It seemed I could get pregnant but I couldn’t stay pregnant and I was at a loss for what to do. I had heard that acupuncture helped with fertility but I had no idea what it was and was skeptical of the needles and how its eastern philosophy could help me in my desire to have a family. But I was willing to try anything.

I had serious doubts that acupuncture would work. I felt like it was more of a scam that would only raise my hopes. I was proven wrong. Angela was warm and listened to my story and understood my concerns. During the first appointment, she started me on a path to preparing my mind, body, and spirit for a pregnancy. Through her diet recommendations and meditation, I focused on getting a sort of balance that would prepare me for a healthy pregnancy. Once I did get pregnant, Angela continued to be my support system. She listened to my concerns, shared in my excitement, and provided me with a wealth of knowledge regarding the testing as well as the physical and mental changes that accompany pregnancy. When I received some scary test results, I truly felt like she was just as concerned as I was. She too felt like the event was unfair, but helped me stay mentally strong to handle additional testing. When everything turned out fine, I honestly felt like she shared in my joy.

Angela Le and I met sometime in late 2008/early 2009.   I was eagerly in search of any help and support that I could find.  My husband and I had been trying to conceive for about three years, at the time.  One IVF, an IUI and several natural attempts later, we had been unsuccessful.   At the age of 45 with irregular menstrual cycles and menopausal symptoms,  I was regularly starting to hear the dreaded “donor egg speech”.  Every time it came up, I simply would shut down, refusing to entertain the thought that my healthy body was incapable of conceiving a child on its own.  I simply needed someone who was willing to help me to overcome these obstacles and get my cycle back on track.
