HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) | Kelly Morton, 37, of Hagerstown, said she and husband Jason wanted to give their daughter Meredith, 6, a sibling.

But after nearly three years of trying to get pregnant and suffering through several miscarriages, Mrs. Morton said she turned to two intrauterine insemination procedures as well as an in vitro fertilization procedure.

All three were unsuccessful, leaving Mrs. Morton physically and emotionally spent, and she and her husband still without another child.

That’s when, Mrs. Morton said, she read an article about how, for some women, acupuncture could help with fertility.

She found Susan L. West of Acupuncture Associates in Hagerstown in the phone book. She said she saw that she was board certified and was listed under fertility. A friend who had acupuncture for her back recommended her.

Now Mrs. Morton and her husband are the parents of 8-week-old Sadie. The little girl’s picture has been added to the bulletin board of other acupuncture babies Ms. West has hanging in her practice’s waiting area.
