Case Study: Preparation for FET/ IVF Transfer

A 42-year-old female came to ilumina in preparation for her second transfer, after treatments with ilumina and a successful transfer two years prior. She previously had embryos frozen and her hope was to have a second child.  She was also looking for support with her stress, sleep and energy level.
