Pregnancy & Childbirth
Pregnancy, childbirth, and postnatal recovery are viewed in traditional medicine as a window of opportunity to enhance the woman’s wellbeing. Conversely, if adequate care is not taken, the resulting problems may continue long after childbirth. Value is therefore placed on promoting preventative care to strengthen the mother and baby as well as dealing with problems as they occur during pregnancy.
Morning sickness, skin itching, constipation, varicose veins, hemorrhoids, muscle pain, sciatica, dizziness are some of the conditions women may find significant relief with natural treatments. Naturopathic medicine seeks to amend your inner imbalance through optimizing your nutrient intake, enhancing your body’s natural elimination pathways, improving circulation to tired tissues, and re-energizing your spirit. We will also gladly support your birthing choices and provide you with any literature research for your interest. Natural medicine is an excellent way for pregnant and breast feeding women to improve the health of both mother and baby.
