Below are two (2) links I thought you may enjoy.
The first is a link to a scientific study showing the lack of adverse side-effects when using acupuncture during pregnancy. I know that some pregnant women are referred to me by their OB-GYN MD's. Yet other women are afraid to use acupuncture. I'm hoping this research will put your mind at ease; that acupuncture is completely safe during pregnancy.

This second (2nd) link is a short video showing the positive effects of mindfulness meditation for helping achieve greater connection and intimacy in relationships.
Sitting quietly, in mindfulness meditation, just 10 or 15 minutes per day will greatly help lower your stress levels and retrain the brain - increasing it's neuroplasticity. In other words, it helps your brain develop new synapse pathways, which allow you to react to the same situations in new, more productive ways.
Mindfulness Meditation in Relationships
Finally, I have found that acupuncture is a great adjunct in fertility treatments, either alone or with herbs and homeopathy; or along with your MD fertility specialist treatments.
Acupuncture, herbs and homeopathy are also very effective for increasing male fertility and erectile function, as well as in increasing female libido and balancing hormones.
