Pregnancy and Infertility
Both maternal and paternal health is important to consider when planning to start a family. Our naturopathic doctors address conditions such as polycystic ovarian syndrome, endometriosis, unexplained infertility, recurring miscarriage, low sperm count, etc. Natural therapies can establish optimal health of the organs and systems that are vital to reproduction and pregnancy in order to allow conception to take place.
In addition to addressing specific conditions impacting fertility, our naturopathic doctors work with couples interested in preconception healthcare. Many conditions we experience as adults are influenced by the environment of our mothers body during pregnancy. Involvement in preconception care with your naturopath would entail dietary and lifestyle guidance as well as supplementation to ensure the optimal environment to support your baby for nine months. Naturopathic medicine can help to prepare the body and mind for pregnancy, support the body while pregnant, treat common pregnancy related complaints and support the health of your new baby.
Treatments may include acupuncture, nutrient supplementation, herbal medicine, lifestyle and dietary counselling as well as stress management.
