Mariah is reportedly giving kudos to new mom Céline Dion for helping her to get pregnant. In the past Celine raved about acupuncture as helping her to conceive, and Mariah decided to try it after suffering a miscarriage in 2008.
“Céline was talking about acupuncture. I used to get acupuncture, and I had never thought [of it] with regards to the trying to conceive situation,” Mariah said. “I was [getting it], like, once a day at least.”
Mariah says that the treatments helped her deal with her stress, which she believes is what ultimately led her to being able to get pregnant. She adds that her friends were more surprised that the busy star was able to commit to the regular treatments. “People who know me would be like, ‘You scheduled acupuncture at a certain time every day? You stayed in one place?'” she laughs.
The pop superstar reveals she also turned to hormone treatments to increase her fertility chances. “I put my body through like a whole kind of cleansing situation,” Mariah says. “I had to be on progesterone. I did end up being on progesterone like every month to go through the cycles.”
