Hello my sweet Marc!!
Our daughter, Luna, was born naturally and peacefully last week in our home in encinitas. She was a couple weeks before her due date, and is quite little but gaining weight every day. Everything could not have been more smooth and perfect in the labor, it was the most powerful experience of my life. She is beautiful and precious and I am incredibly grateful and “over the moon” in love with her. Thank you all for your part in stewarding this dream into reality. I love you all!!

Thank you to all those who helped bring this being into my life xoxo eternally grateful

After years of infertility and depression, I had a friend tell me about Marc Sklar. I had been on and off of the infertility drug Clomid for about three years when I walked into Marc’s office. I never ovulate. But after only five months of treatments and herbs along with Marc’s professionalism and desire to help I got pregnant. I had a history of miscarriages and amazingly found myself almost eight weeks pregnant before I even found out. I had never held a pregnancy more than about two weeks before coming to see Marc.

Dear Marc My baby boy Matthew is growing so well and so fast! He is now 4.5 months!! He is talking up a storm, mouthing his toes and starting to sit up independently! He is such a happy baby and so very good! He is so funny, sweet, loving, and I can go on for days about his personality!! He is a champion breastfeeder and in the 95 percentile for height and weight! I can't believe how quickly time has flown by!!! I am loving Motherhood so very much and feel truly blessed to have this little munchkin. I am so grateful to have been able to spend all this time with Matthew and will be returning part time to work in 2 weeks. Here are some pictures of my little guy! Hope you are all well. Thank you for the wonderful resources and for everything else! I hope to stop in sometime soon!!! All the best!!!Robyn M.26, PCOS Patient
Hi Marc and team! I am long overdue in checking in and sending pictures of Baby Brooks. I hope you enjoy these and know that our smiles are in many ways due to you!
I also wanted to thank you again for everything you did to help us conceive and bring our healthy baby boy into this world. We are so lucky to have found you and know that we made the right decision in trying naturally instead of the prescribed Clomid on our journey of trying to conceive. After being diagnosed with PCOS, I had been left discouraged and disoriented. From the first appointment and throughout I learned so much more about PCOS and living a healthy lifestyle from Marc than I had from both my OB & primary care Dr. He immediatley helped to give me a sense of direction and tools to renew our hopes of reproductive health and starting a family. After only a few months of treatment we were able to conceive! We still can't quite believe how blessed we are. I believe that the your approach and lifestyle treatments not only helped me to conceive, but also that the treatments I had leading up to and after the due date helped to start labor naturally, despite being a week overdue. I was able to deliver a healthy baby boy according to our wishes, naturally without any induction or pain meds, exactly as we had prepared for!
Brooks just recently turned five months old. We are all healthy and thriving.
Thank you for all that you do! We will surely be back when it comes time to try for anotherEmily D.28, PCOS Patient

I initially went to see Marc to combat the tremendous amount of work-related stress I was experiencing. During our initial consultation he addressed this as well as many of areas of concern and explained his philosophy behind treating the whole person. This led to focus on my digestive system, PMS, and the regulation of my menstrual cycle. He guided me through these processes, explained the issues, and shared with me what I could expect during and after both acupuncture and herbal treatments.
I was so pleased to see results that were immediate and continued during the time between sessions. Because of this work I had been doing with Marc, when my husband and I decided to have a baby, my body was already in the process of regulating itself to a balanced state. This made the transition from taking birth control pills for the past 10 years to pregnancy both relaxed and healthy.
We are now 3 months pregnant and will continue to receive acupuncture treatments for a comfortable and healthful pregnancy. Marc’s expertise, patience, understanding, and genuine concern for my well-being was a refreshing change from traditional medicines. I have recommended several of my friends and family to his care and all have expressed the same appreciation for the successful results they have seen following treatment.Julie E.35, Stress and Menstrual Dissorders
I just wanted to share our great news with you! Our baby girl was born last week and things could not have gone better! My water broke on Sunday the 13th in the morning and she was born about 6 hours after our arrival. The labor and delivery went very well. My nurse, Pam kept saying that we were the envy of all the other nurses. She called it a text book labor and delivery. Both Kylie and I stayed strong and there were no complications at all.
My recovery has been great too!
Anyway, I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for everything you have done to assist me in getting pregnant, sustaining a healthy pregnancy and delivery! By the way – you gave me the candles to put on my toes because she was breech at week 36 and a few days after starting the treatment, I had a sonogram and she had moved to head down. It was pretty funny to see my husband’s reaction when he saw what I was doing, but he is now a believer.
Thanks again for everything and I will be sure to express my gratitude with you and your practice with Dr. Rakoff and the OB-Gyn dept. at Scripps Carmel Valley. We are proud to announce the arrival of our beautiful daughter, Kylie.Jennifer P.29, Unexplained Infertility Patient
