Jennifer Mercier takes on IVF, exposing Low Success Rates, Lies and Dangers

Mercier Therapy offers a traditional alternative to predatory doctors and the overall fertility crisis ​Documentary opens Nationwide ​next month​ The Fertility Crisis Couples are waiting longer and longer to start families for many reasons. Too often, when the time is right financially, socially or professionally, it may not be right physically.

Herbal Remedies, Supplements & Teas During Pregnancy

Improved memory (what pregnant woman couldn't use that?), sounder sleep (ditto!), better moods (double ditto!), improved immunity against colds and flu (who needs to be sick when you're already morning sick?): Herbal supplements do make the most tempting of promises — especially when pregnancy leaves you with few self-medicating options open (and your medicine cabinet closed).
