Ask Mama Amy Episode 17: Passionately Navigating Fertility Challenges

Dr. Denise Wiesner, DACM, L.Ac. has dedicated her career to combining Western and Eastern Medicine to help patients overcome a variety of health issues, including infertility. It wasn’t until Dr. Denise struggled to conceive her second child that she began to see the need for open communication about intimacy and sexuality. Throughout her career, Denise has seen firsthand how stressful baby-making can be. She has since shown hundreds of couples how to approach pregnancy without damaging their relationship. 

According to Dr. Denise, there are many things that can interfere with a couple’s ability to conceive. Whether it be lack of communication, fear, or even health-related issues, it is important to always focus on connecting with your partner through honest communication. When you and your partner remain passionate, you will decrease stress and feel more connected. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter what route you take to have a child because it’s about the divine experience of love. 

Tune into this week’s episode of AskMamaAmy for an open conversation about common challenges regarding sexuality and intimacy. Learn more about the importance of honest discussion, asking for help, and prioritizing intimacy, so you and your partner can keep the passion alive as you navigate through fertility.
