Pre-Conception & Fertility

Naturopathic medicine helps family to establish optimal health prior to conception to ensure a healthy pregnancy and baby. Whether you are planning to conceive naturally or are using assisted reproductive technologies, naturopathic care can improve your rates of a healthy full term pregnancy by balancing hormones, creating an optimal environment for pregnancy and improving male factor fertility.

Our Naturopathic team teaches all of our patients how to properly track and understand their fertility signs. Each patient receives a customized plan to address their barriers to healthy conception including stress management, detoxification, dietary modifications and herbal and supplemental therapies to balance hormones and improve fertility. Acupuncture is another valuable tool that improves conception rates by up to 65%.

Common fertility conditions treated: natural family planning, PCOS, IVF/IUI support, egg quality, endometriosis, fibroids, decreased sperm parameters (motility, count and morphology), luteal phase defects, thin lining, recurrent miscarriage, autoimmune conditions and more.

Pregnancy

Naturopathic medicine helps women to nourish a healthy pregnancy and give their baby the best possible start to life. Using gentle and safe therapies, common concerns such as heartburn, nausea, leg cramps and fatigue can be effectively managed. By implementing a healthy diet and lifestyle, our team can help you to reduce the likelihood of complications such as excess weight gain, gestational diabetes, group B strep, high blood pressure and pre-eclampsia. Our team teaches patients which supplements are most effective to support growth and development of baby and also helps to take a preventative approach for baby to reduce rates of familial diseases, autism, allergies and eczema in your newborn.

Using Naturopathic medicine can help to prepare you to give birth the way you choose, whatever that means for you. Our Naturopathy team will help to navigate through decision-making regarding labour, support you with strategies such as acupuncture for optimal baby positioning and to bring on labour without induction, and reduce the rate of medical interventions including forceps, vacuum and Cesarean birth.

In the post-partum period, naturopathic medicine is a powerful tool to speed recovery from Cesarean or vaginal birth and help new families thrive. Naturopathy can help you to have more energy, improved milk supply, feel supported and reduce post-partum depression and anxiety as you settle in to motherhood.
