Pregnancy Naturopathy Melbourne
Top priority is your health and of your growing baby. A healthy baby needs a healthy mum and our Nurtured Birth naturopath can help you achieve this. Pregnancy naturopathy can support your growing body to adjust to the quite dramatic changes it will go through on this remarkable journey to motherhood.
There is a lot of information available about what you should and shouldn’t be doing and eating while pregnant. It can be confusing to work out what’s best for you, your personal situation and pregnancy.
Our naturopath can help you navigate this journey by empowering you to be connected to your body, your health and your changing needs. Aiming for optimal health during pregnancy helps you to avoid possible complications which can impact your birth and your baby’s future health.
Nutritional needs for you will change as you progress through every trimester. A one-size-fits-all pregnancy supplement might work initially, but it is unlikely to meet your individual needs over time. Our naturopath can help support your body and baby’s needs through these changes.
Additionally, some of the issues and common symptoms that may arise during pregnancy require expert, non-invasive and gentle treatment.
The following common symptoms may be successfully treated with naturopathy:
- Morning sickness
- Gestational Diabetes
Preparing For Labour And Post Birth
At Nurtured Birth, we believe the best possible birth experience comes from a holistic approach. Ensuring your nutrition is optimal can help your body cope with the demands of labour and healing afterwards.
Herbal medicine has been used for decades to assist with toning and strengthening the uterus and cervix before birth. This may result in a more comfortable and smoother labour experience.
After birth, your naturopath can advise on remedies which assist with postnatal recovery, aid successful breastfeeding and promote general wellbeing.
