Prenatal Natural Care
Naturopathic medicine supports you caring for your most precious gift! We provide complete naturopathic prenatal care. Our doctors work closely with you to provide the support you need during this precious time in life for both you and your baby. You can begin prenatal care as soon as you find out that you are pregnant.
The care we provide will be in conjunction with your Obstetrician/OB or your midwife. We do not participate in home births nor can we assist at the hospital with the birth of your child. Our doctors can help you find the right midwife/Obstetrician for your family.
The first prenatal appointment is an hour long. At this appointment and consecutive appointments, we can provide nutritional support, including pre-natal recommendation, advanced laboratory testing, natural childbirth and lactation support discussions, pregnancy symptom management, fitness regimens, fetal heart rates, and belly measurements. We can also do a blood test to determine the fetal sex and the most common genetic disorders.
You will also speak with the doctor about your personal medical history, the other parent's medical history, and your family’s medical history. The doctor will give you a complete checkup, this normally consists of a physical exam and a urine test to make sure you are healthy.
Frequent conditions our doctors see during pregnancy include thyroid issues, gestational diabetes, acid reflux, fatigue, insomnia, morning sickness, hemorrhoids, and anxiety. We can provide hydration IVs at the doctor’s discretion, which is of the utmost of importance during pregnancy, as well as homeopathy and acupuncture. Acupuncture can relieve back pain and help with stress, insomnia, anxiety, and can be used to induce labor.
