Fertility, Prenatal and Postnatal Care

Holistic solutions for women before, during, & after pregnancy

Tailored specifically to the needs of 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.

Fertility

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!

Hormones and Menopause

Women’s health is an extensive and important topic! Any woman can tell you that at some point in her life she has dealt with an aspect of her health that only occurs in the female realm. Under that umbrella of women’s health, lies an even more prevalent topic: Female Hormones! How to balance those hormones and keep them in check is the tricky part at any age!

There is a fine line between hormonal balance and imbalance, and women of all ages walk this uncertain line without appropriate support. Proper testing, targeted nutrition protocols, supplementation, and hormone replacement (when necessary) can help resolve many hormonal issues, including but not limited to PMS, PCOS, menopause, weight gain, bone health, fertility, and defense against breast cancer.

Dr. Galina believes that every woman is different and has her unique wellness needs, but the underlying principle of female health is most often hormonal balance or lack thereof.  By ordering the right kind of labs and truly getting to the cause of each individual imbalance, Dr. Galina can help you regain control of your health and help you feel your best you!
