Shared Journey Fertility Program

Mercier Therapy provides a safe, gentle, and naturally minded pelvic visceral manipulation technique for women facing fertility challenges, experiencing pelvic pain, recovering from gynecologic surgery, and having undergone traumatic birthing experiences. The program was developed by midwife, naturopathic doctor, and massage therapist Jennifer Mercier, PhD.

Whether you are preparing for pregnancy or are working through fertility challenges, preparing your pelvis with Mercier Therapy will improve the likelihood of your success.  Mercier Therapy can be used as a stand alone natural therapy at anytime.  It may also be used as an adjunct to other assisted reproductive technology techniques (ART).  The therapy protocol (12 half hour sessions) is started and finished prior to the stimulation portion of a medically assisted cycle.

An IVF cycle can be very costly both emotionally and financially. Many times more than one cycle is required to achieve pregnancy. Mercier Therapy concluded a four year, evidence based research study in September 2012, indicating a 83-percent pregnancy success rate. The abstract, “Mercier Therapy Helps Infertile Women Achieve Pregnancy” was published in the spring 2013 edition of Midwifery Today.
