Prenatal and Postnatal Care

“Birth is an opportunity to transcend. To rise above what we are accustomed to, reach deeper inside ourselves than we are familiar with, and to see not only what we are truly made of, but the strength we can access in and through Birth.” — Marcie Macari

Prenatal and Postnatal Care

Holistic solutions for moms before, during, & after pregnancy. Tailored specifically to the needs of pregnant women & their changing bodies through the various stages of the miracle of life.

Dr. Galina believes that pre-natal care begins months before conception and a well-rounded and comprehensive approach to preparing a woman for pregnancy and beyond is the key to the health of both mom and baby. As a Naturopathic Doctor, she can help you from the beginning stages of conception, all the way through birth and mommy-hood.

 

Pre-Conception
There are many natural and holistic things you can do to prepare your body to help improve the chances of conception, the healthy maintenance of a pregnancy, and to bring a healthy baby into this world. If troubles arise, then we have a head start to finding the root cause of the problem, and work towards a solution right away.

Dr. Galina provides help with multiple factors of your pre-pregnancy health and wellness: transitioning off of birth control, regulating your menstrual cycle, and prenatal supplementation.

 

Pre-Natal Care
After conception, Dr. Galina works with the expecting mom to ensure that she is receiving adequate nutrition and any supplementation necessary to promote healthy development. She helps you to make informed decisions along your journey, answer any questions you may have, and work to provide safe and appropriate support through naturopathic therapies for any problems that may arise during the pregnancy.

Some things that we typically focus on include:

  • Prenatal supplements
  • Morning sickness
  • Heartburn
  • Encouraging labour when past due date
  • Education & preparation

 

Post-Natal Care
While the pregnancy portion may be over, that is only just the beginning! Support can be provided around helping you transition to your “new-normal” and any challenges that may arise, including, but not limited to:

  • Breastfeeding
  • Postpartum Depression
  • Fatigue
  • Proper Nutrition
  • Weight Loss

 

Dr. Galina is here for all mommy-to-be and new mommy needs!
