OUR SUCCESS STORIES
I have been lucky to call Shaunda Cottingim a friend for over 13 years. Naturally when my husband and I were ready to start family planning, I looked to her for advice. After we had been trying for over 6 months, it became apparent that it was not going to be super easy for us to conceive. My conventional doctor was great for helping us to ensure there were no medical issues causing us to have difficulty. Sperm counts were great, no structural issues with my uterus or fallopian tubes causing trouble, and all my hormonal levels were normal. So I was left with a diagnosis of unexplained infertility. Powerful drugs to force my body to over release eggs or IVF were left as our options. Neither of these options seemed reasonable to me and my husband especially since there was no diagnosable underlying cause. Luckily Shaunda opened up a whole world of options to me and my husband.
Unfortunately I now live about 10 states away from Shaunda and her practice, but I make several trips home each year. On one visit we did about 6 sessions of fertility massage and really began our treatment with her. She got me set up with some great supplements to use and we were ready to get back to trying. Throughout our Journey Shaunda has been in constant contact sending me new articles to read, daily affirmations to meditate on and just great support in general.
About 5 months ago she drew my attention to a Natural Fertility Website that had seen many great successes with some of the supplements they promote. After spending time on their site I decided to try 3 supplements they were recommending. They were Maca, Royal Jelly, and Vitamin D. I started to notice a difference on my very next period. It was much heavier than normal, but virtually pain free, which has never happened to me. I have always had very painful periods. Within two months of being on the new supplements I got my very first positive pregnancy test. As I write this I will be 16 weeks along tomorrow and I still cannot believe it. My husband and I were trying for just over 2 years and I am so happy that with the counsel of Shaunda we were able to do it naturally and without crazy expensive medical treatments.
I am a 36 year old who suffers from endometriosis ,pelvic pain and fertility issues. Before starting fertility massage I underwent three years of many tests, medications, stressful physician appointments and even surgery to help treat and diagnose my condition. Even after medical treatment and surgery my pelvic pain was at times difficult to endure. I was tired of medical treatment and emotionally drained when my Aunt who is a midwife recommended fertility massage therapy by Shaunda. I was very open to natural treatment and Shaunda made me feel comfortable right away and gladly answered all my questions and addressed my concerns. She is a very supportive and knowledgeable fertility coach who truly cares for her clients and puts all her effort into helping and treating them. The therapy has greatly reduced my pelvic pain and Shaunda's emotional support has give me a more positive outlook to manage my disease process. I am so thankful my journey led me to Shaunda and would highly recommend her to anyone who has a history of endometriosis, pelvic pain or infertility issues.
