Pregnancy: A promise to conceive the ideal child.

Since returning from my Christmas break I have been surprised at the number of couples who have sought out my services with the aim of having a child born in the “year of the dragon”. I have since learned this trend is not just happening at the Fertility & IVF Acupuncture Clinic, it seems to be happening world wide. A Los Angeles IVF clinic has reported a 250% increase in either Chinese or Chinese-American patients!!! Being unfamiliar with Chinese astrology I decided to find out what all the fuss is about.

The year of the dragon is considered to be the luckiest of the Chinese lunar years. This means that couples who may be experiencing infertility problems believe they will have a greater chance of conceiving during this lunar year.  Moreover, children born under the dragon sign are also considered to be highly prized. Legend has it that dragon children are smarter, stronger and luckier than those who are born under other star signs.

If you like the idea of having an increased chance of pregnancy or you would like a child who possess these qualities, you had better hurry up. My information has it that you will need to conceive by some time in early to mid-May to ensure a birth before the next lunar new year.
