Pregnancy

Pregnancy is an incredible time of transition for a mom-to-be.  The symptoms a woman experiences during her 40 weeks of gestation can often determine how she perceives this time.   A woman tends to enjoy her pregnancy when she feels full of energy, vitality, strength, and her pregnancy remains free from complications.

A healthy pregnancy doesn’t happen by chance.  Health can be created and anticipated with the correct health program and practitioner.  I recommend four months of preconception health care to prepare a woman and her partner for conception.  This preparation can greatly improve the chances of a successful conception, pregnancy, birth, and baby.

Pregnancy Related Conditions I work to prevent and treat at my clinic in Lynn Valley, North Vancouver:

  • Nausea and morning sickness
  • Varicose veins
  • Insomnia
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Group B Strep (GBS) prevention
  • Iron deficiency anemia
  • Fatigue
  • Joint pain
  • Preeclampsia
  • Depression
  • Recurrent miscarriage
  • Gestational Diabetes
  • Labour and delivery support
  • Breastfeeding support

I look forward to meeting you and helping you create the pregnancy you have always wanted.
