Stephanie has a talent I've never seen before. I started seeing her in my first trimester for crippling nausea, and her weekly acupuncture sessions were the only thing that helped me. I also saw her for some post-partum pain, and within days the pain vanished. She is deeply knowledgable, compassionate, intuitive and sensitive - a wonderful person to know. Would recommend her to anyone experiencing mysterious prenatal pains, or just trying to get through pregnancy, or even life! :)

I got pregnant 6 weeks after I started working with Stephanie! My journey overall was long but I have no doubt the acupuncture, herbs and baths I did through Stephanie's guidance is what got me here. She is intuitive, focused and caring. The home visits make it so convenient to prioritize your health. She checked in on me between sessions and was always there for me. I cannot recommend her healing services enough!

Stephanie is incredibly knowledgeable, caring, and intuitive. I can't think of a healthcare provider I've trusted as wholly as I have Stephanie! I'm a birth doula, so I have both received acupuncture from Stephanie personally as well as referred her to numerous clients for their breech babies, labor-readiness, swelling & discomfort...you name it. My clients sing her praises so highly I consider her an almost essential part of my prenatal support for my pregnant clients. In pregnancy during a pandemic, her home visits are also such a gift. Not having to travel for care has been a great comfort to my families. Recently, she also facilitated a home birth for a client who had been in labor for nearly two days! Stephanie came to the space worked her magic, water broke, and baby was born just 5 hours later. We were all so grateful for her responsiveness & attendance in labor! For myself, when my TMJ flared up aggressively during an incredibly busy season of work, I texted Stephanie first. I knew she would have solutions beyond the traditional night guard or botox injections ... both things I was reluctant to do. She came over promptly and gave me immediate relief from the pain with a restorative acupuncture treatment. After the treatment, she also had a comprehensive list of herbs and habits to incorporate in my life to relieve the tension in a holistic way. She is a fount of knowledge, truly. If you've never tried acupuncture or are on the fence about it, I hope I can sing her praises enough to convince you!! You won't regret connecting with Stephanie and experiencing the amazing impact she'll have on your health, your pregnancy, birth and postpartum.

Stephanie is wonderful! I was 36 weeks pregnant and had elevated blood pressure, a breech baby, and a terrible virus to boot. My doc was planning an induction that I'd hoped to avoid, and I also really wanted my baby to turn. A few sessions with Stephanie and my baby had righted herself, and I went into labor at 37.5 weeks! I'm convinced it's due to Stephanie and her acupuncture sessions. In addition to her mastery with the needles, Stephanie is a kind, calming, lovely presence, and she even brought me some elderberry syrup when I couldn't find any nearby. Highly recommend!

Stephanie is wonderful. I was 39.5 weeks pregnant and scheduled to be induced at 40 weeks. I was hoping to avoid going on pitocin again, so I asked Stephanie to come and move things along. After a 45 minute session, I went into labor later that same night, and gave birth to a healthy baby boy. Would definitely recommend her for any moms who are trying to get a jump on labor.

I was diagnosed with Choleostasis in my first pregnancy and then nearly died giving birth. So when I accidentally got pregnant with my second a year after I was terrified and I knew I needed to do things differently. Stephanie came week after week and I wasn't sure if it was "working" but I wanted to try it all. When I made it past 34 weeks everyone was impressed that my pregnancy went further than my first had. My doctor was so impressed by my lab results - my liver enzymes were better than they had been even before I was pregnant. She had given me a 80% chance it choleostasis returning - which it did not. Of course every pregnancy is dramatic in its own way so after reaching high goals of keeping baby to 37 weeks I then was facing another issue - the baby was breech. Once again Stephanie was able to fix it with her remedies and healing hand in only a few days. In my Pisces personality and with a stressful job I would inevitably flake on most appointments especially pregnant and if they required driving into the city or Brooklyn but here came Stephanie with her punctual and flexible house visits. I highly recommend her - she is a healer, incredibly intelligent and the answer to traditional medicine that most often fails women. I can't wait to see how I heal with Stephanie guidance post labor !

Whenever anyone asks how in the world I had a sub-4-hour labor with just 10 minutes of active pushing as a first time mother, I tell them about Stephanie Propper. I started working with Stephanie when I was about 36 weeks pregnant in hopes that acupuncture would help "turn" my posterior baby. At 39 weeks pregnant, I began to see Stephanie every other day to aid in starting labor. Not only is Stephanie ethereally sweet and gentle, she is also deeply skilled and knowledgeable in her field of Chinese medicine, as well as many other areas related to pregnancy and perinatal care. If you choose just one thing to spend money on during your pregnancy, make it Stephanie Propper acupuncture. It is so, so worth it. As a first time mom who had great anxiety about the process of labor and childbirth, it is the best feeling to be able to look back on my birth experience with so much positivity. I truly believe that my body was prepared, strengthened, and empowered because of Stephanie's incredible work.

Stephanie helped me so much during my recent pregnancy! First she helped turn my breech baby. She came to my apartment and did the treatment in the comfort and privacy of my own home. It was so relaxing! Then, when my baby was late, she came back, did another treatment, and also prescribed herbs for me to take. My baby finally came and everything went fine. I am so appreciative! Stephanie is super talented and I highly recommend her.

I enlisted Stephanie's help when I was 5 days overdue with my daughter. She came to our apartment (during my 2yo's nap time to boot!) and it was so wonderful to have our acupuncture session from the comfort of y own home. Our first session produced great results--contractions started 12 hours later and she returned for a second session when my labor stalled. She was such a welcomed presence in our home during this intimate time. She was warm, kind and gentle and a master of her craft. I felt very supported in her capable hands. Within hours of our second session, I was holding my daughter in my arms after a relatively quick, unmedicated birth. I have since referred Stephanie to at least 5 friends looking for help bringing their little ones into the world and they all experienced similar results. I highly recommend Propper Acupuncture!

Stephanie is absolutely wonderful! She is so kind, intuitive, gentle and experienced. She knows exactly what she's doing and you can rely on her to help your body heal and flourish. I've been seeing her for fertility and pregnancy support and have been really happy with our sessions. I didn't come into it to "fix" anything but overall I do feel that our sessions have benefited my body and general well-being. I always feel more relaxed, balanced and nurtured (and less nauseous during my first trimester!). Thank you, Stephanie!!
