Cecily Yousaf, MA. LAc, MSOM, CLC Licensed Acupuncturist Specializing in Fertility, Gynecology, and Lactation Certified Lactation Counselor
Owner of Fertile Ground Integrated Wellness Center
Cecily has been helping couples achieve and maintain pregnancy using a blend of Western medical knowledge and Eastern medical techniques in combination with diet, exercise and mind/body practices since 2003.
Cecily’s undergraduate degrees are in psychology and biology. While planning for a career in Western Medicine, she received acupuncture treatment for an injury.The pain she had for several months prior was completely gone after just a few treatments. After lots of research and thought, she entered school for Eastern Medicine instead. During her training, as she began to struggle with fertility, Eastern medicine helped her to conceive and carry to term two healthy, wonderful daughters.
She graduated in 2003 and has devoted the main focus of her practice to fertility. She has had advanced training in the field of gynecology, including training with Dr. Randine Lewis, author of The Infertility Cure. Her broad focus is on gynecology in general. She is skilled in treating menstrual irregularities, endometriosis, PCOS, lactation, and menopausal symptoms. She accompanies patients to IVF and IUI appointments to perform acupuncture treatments that can improve the odds of implantation. She is also skilled in using acupuncture to encourage labor and will attend and assist with labor.
A personal note from Cecily:
I am honored to assist you on your journey to reclaim your
fertility. My goal is to work together with you to help prepare your body for
conception and pregnancy whether it is through natural medicine or a
combination of natural and assisted fertility treatments.
In my practice I treat each patient as an individual whose
health needs are different from the needs of others. My goal is to form a
personalized, respectful and healing partnership with each patient.I strive
for each patient to become empowered with knowledge and confidence and to take
part in their healing process and journey to parenthood. I am looking forward
to assisting you on your path to health and wellness.
