Pre and Post Natal Care With any woman or couple wanting to conceive and carry a healthy baby to term, we know that there is a strong desire to feed the pregnant partner the best possible diet. We can help you with guidelines for pre-pregnancy, pregnancy and post-natal nutrition and also give you help in optimizing your pregnancy with specific supplements. Labour is another important event we can help you prepare for with specific nutrients as well as Bowen Therapy.
Unfortunately things may not always run smoothly and we have experience in helping with infertility and also helping with difficulties that may arise during the pregnancy.
Common things such as morning sickness, indigestion and backache can all be helped with Naturopathic care as well as some of the less common issues such as carpal tunnel syndrome, hypertension and pre-eclampsia. We also have experience at the Dragonfly Naturopathic Clinic in helping women go into labour if they are past their due date and would like to avoid drug induction.
After giving birth, the baby is a wonderful gift, but this can be a challenging transition in the parents’ lives! Babies can have difficulty with things such as colic, bowel movements (constipation or diarrhea), sleeping and skin conditions. Baby Bowen is highly recommended for all infants as the act of simply being born can be demanding on that tiny body and balancing the body is always a good thing! Baby Bowen can be extremely useful in colicky babies.
