Pregnancy Care

There is no better time to see a Naturopath than during pregnancy.  Your body is changing.  Your nutritional needs are changing.  You may be experiencing health concerns you have never had before.  Naturopathic Medicine is an integrative health care philosophy that recognizes the importance of health during conception, pregnancy, labour and birth.  Naturopathic Doctors work with your health care team (family doctor, midwife and/or obstetrician) to provide care to both the pregnant mother and unborn baby.

Naturopathic Medicine isn’t just for moms.  It’s for babies too.  During pregnancy and infancy Naturopathic Medicine can help your baby reach it’s full potential – for growth, intelligence and health.  It can also help prevent common childhood conditions, such as eczema, asthma and allergies.

Naturopathic Medicine supports your body, and your baby, with gentle, safe and effective medicine.  Conditions that Naturopathic Medicine can treat during pregnancy include:

  • Morning sickness
  • Heart burn
  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Constipation
  • Hemorrhoids
  • Fluid retention and swelling
  • Lowered immune system
  • Nutrient deficiencies
  • Leg and foot cramps
  • Stretch marks
  • Gestational diabetes
  • High blood pressure
