Prenatal and Pregnancy Care

Are you aware of all the ways you can receive naturopathic support for this phase in life?

Adding a Naturopathic Doctor to your pregnancy healthcare team can help you manage common early pregnancy symptoms of nausea, fatigue, bloating, headaches, changes in appetite and heartburn.

We can speak with you about both you and your growing baby’s nutrient needs. We can help you decide which supplements may be needed for you and baby, taking into consideration your health history. We can help you optimize your digestive health and vaginal microbiome during pregnancy, and in preparation for labour.

Are you predisposed to gestational diabetes? Do you have a medical history of atopic eczema or atopic dermatitis that is aggravated by pregnancy? Your naturopathic doctor can make suggestions to proactively treat or alleviate these concerns and more by helping you identify triggers, and then coming up with sustainable solutions to minimize your discomfort.

Other common reasons you might want to add a Naturopathic Doctor to your healthcare team:

  • You are dealing with symptoms associated with hormonal changes
  • You are dealing with morning sickness
  • You need help creating healthy food cravings for the family
  • You need help optimizing the health of supportive partners, children and family through this process
  • You would like one-on-one help figuring out what to eat for a healthy pregnancy with changes in appetite
  • You want to know which nutrients, vitamins, minerals, botanicals, herbs and teas that are safe to ingest in pregnancy
  • You need support managing blood sugars, cravings and weight
  • You want to prepare your body for labour and beyond
  • You are open to expanding your family or are wanting to space your children, and you want to know the best ways to do this so you continue to feel well and strong
  • You want to work with a Natural Family Planning Aware/Fertility-Aware Naturopathic Doctor who will support you preconception and onwards!
