Preconception Health Care
Preconception planning helps to stack the odds of health in favour of not only the parents, but the child as well.
It takes three months for sperm and eggs to form, so it makes sense to have both parents in the best shape of their lives at least six months before this window. Losing weight, avoiding social toxins, boosting nutrition, seeing to dental health, spinal health, exercise, fitness, hormonal health and powering up nourishment is the best investment in both fertility, and your baby's future health. This kind of start can impact their health for the whole of their life, as well as the generations springing from this down-line on the family tree into the future.
Pregnancy, Development & Birth Preparation
Once you're pregnant it all starts. The first trimester can bring extreme fatigue, dizziness, nausea and hypersensitivity to smells. While the second trimester is usually a dream, by the third trimester the theme is growth, and you will notice your size may slow you down.
Recognising the symptoms you may experience as signals that your body needs some extra support in whatever area is related, can help you heed the message and take action to support the developmental needs of the baby and yourself. Symptoms like tiredness, body pains, tendon and muscle issues, restless sleep, and stretch marks can be signals that nutritional insufficiency needs to be addressed.
With regular Naturopathic sessions, you can maximise the alchemistic potency of this time and improve your baby's health, often for life. Naturopathic support can help you negotiate the terrain of pregnancy, and ensure that your baby receives all of the nutritional support it needs for each phase of development in utero.
Pregnancy preparation can help the birth experience be more positive with improved outcomes for both mum and baby.
Pregnancy is a once, twice or three times life experience for many, it pays to invest in it being the most profound experience of your life.
Lactation - Birth Recovery - Infancy
Moving into parenthood is a major life transition. Babies bring with them a whole lot of new experiences. From feeding issues, tummy trouble and sleepless nights, to rashes, colic, reflux and nappy rash. Simple things put in place early can help prevent many of the pitfalls of newborn life, such preventing mastitis, healing after the birth, vaccination support, optimal nourishment and emotional awareness are just a few of benefits that Naturopathic support can bring to families with babies.
