Trying to get pregnant?
Holistic Preconception and Prenatal Care
The childbearing year is a special and exciting time for a woman and her partner. It’s accompanied by amazing physical and emotional transitions which often call for extra support and reassurance.
I provide adjunct care for pregnant women who already have an OB/GYN or midwife as their primary provider but desire holistic guidance to optimize their health and the health of a precious new life.
This additional care for health prior and during pregnancy helps to prevent complications, keeps you glowing and comfortable, and gets your baby off to a strong beginning.
