Pregnancy Care

Pregnancy photoPregnancy is a time for new changes  in your body. Some women experience conditions that they have never had before. Naturopathic medicine can provide safe, gentle, and effective management of these conditions. Naturopathic Doctors work with an individuals’ health care team (family doctor, midwife and/or obstetrician) to provide care to both the pregnant mother and unborn baby.

Common conditions

An individualized plan will be developed to help you reach your pregnancy goals and to manage the conditions that you are feeling. The goal will be to optimize your health and the health of your baby.
