Pregnancy and Fertility

There is no greater opportunity to impact the health of the next generation than during pregnancy and the months leading up to conception. As a Naturopathic Doctor my goal is to improve the health of mothers, fathers and babies by supporting the entire journey from pregnancy planning through to labour and delivery and beyond.

Pre-Conception Planning

Preparing your body for pregnancy is one important part of the journey towards parenthood. Optimizing your diet, incorporating healthy exercise and making changes to your lifestyle can prepare your body for pregnancy and set the stage for a healthy future as a family.

Pregnancy

It is a blessing to be able to support my patients on their journey into parenthood. Pregnancy is a time of great growth and change – physically, emotionally and socially. There is no greater opportunity for us to optimize the health of the next generation than during pregnancy.
