Treatments For Fertility, Pregnancy & Postpartum

For many women having a baby is the most looked forward to event in their lives. I know that it is also a time when every woman and every family should ideally receive additional support. I offer health programs that suit your unique needs whether you meet challenges or ease on the journey to begin your family.

Fertility & Preconception – It’s Never Too Early To Get Support

Preconception is the time to become as healthy as possible in order to have a smooth pregnancy and a happy, healthy baby. I recommend you see me as early as possible in your process to receive the best possible assistance. I offer a customized approach to your care whether you are contemplating pregnancy in the future or if you have already met frustration trying to conceive for some time. I will perform a thorough evaluation and offer a treatment plan to optimize your overall health and balance your hormones. If you have experienced difficulty conceiving, I will investigate underlying causes and explain ‘unexplained fertility’. I will recommend non-invasive natural treatments as a first approach. I am well educated in conventional treatments and can help you navigate those choices. My top concern as a doctor is that you feel empowered in your process and trusting of your body and yourself as a woman. You can expect me to:

  • Treat you as a whole person – understanding your emotional wellbeing is as important as your physical health
  • Order laboratory tests including specialty tests to look at underlying functional issues
  • Discuss treatment options and help you make educated choices
  • Offer a customized plan incorporating naturopathic and acupuncture support 

Pregnancy – Just What You Need!

I offer various options for continuing support of your pregnancy depending on your needs. I will work in addition to your provider of choice (OB or midwife).  I provide treatment in the following areas:

  • Targeted treatments for pregnancy related complaints such as nausea, indigestion, constipation, fatigue, and insomnia.
  • Counseling on optimal nutrition and movement
  • Supplementation protocols for a healthy pregnancy
  • Natural treatments to support your emotional balance
  • Resources for labor preparation

Post-Partum – You Don’t Have To Do This On Your Own

The time period after you give birth is both a beautiful time to bond as a new family and an unusually challenging time. Hormonal shifts, lack of sleep, and a constant demand on your time and attention as a new mother can be overwhelming. More than ever, it is important that you take care of yourself and receive support. I understand that it can be truly difficult to reach out during this time and to even make it out of the house. For this reason, I make myself available with out of business hour appointments and house calls. I can help you to:

  • Feel more centered and supported
  • Balance hormones
  • Increase your energy
