The medical definition of recurrent miscarriages or Recurrent Pregnancy Loss (RPL) is ‘three or more consecutive losses of recognized pregnancies before the 20th week or 5th month of pregnancy’.
Did you know that about 15% of pregnant women experience a miscarriage during childbearing age? Just 2% of pregnant women experience two pregnancy losses in a row, and only about 1 percent have three consecutive pregnancy losses.
Ultimately, there are many factors that may lead to the diagnosis of “Recurrent Pregnancy Loss” including genetics, anatomic, medical conditions and lifestyle factors. But, the good news is, there are things you can do to decrease your chances of experiencing Recurrent Pregnancy Loss.

Apply Fertility or Abdominal Massage
Acupressure has been used for thousands of years to help improve hormonal balance, the menstrual cycle, and aid conception. It’s easy, effective, and can be done at home to help improve blood flow to the reproductive organs.
In our clinic, we use (and teach our patients to do at home) Acupressure, Castor oil packs and Femoral Artery Massage to increase circulation to the uterus and decrease your chances of miscarriage!
Acupuncture & Chinese Herbs
We have a lot of success using Acupuncture and Chinese herbs to reduce RPL. Actually, acupuncture has been proven effective for increasing blood supply to both the ovaries and uterus. Reduction of inflammation, balancing hormone levels, regulating the immune system, and smoothing the impact of emotions and stress are also ways acupuncture aids in preventing pregnancy loss.
Chinese herbal medicine has also been used for centuries to prevent miscarriage and promote a healthy pregnancy. Evidence shows the strong anti-inflammatory, anticoagulant and immunoregulatory properties of many Chinese herbs.
