Ready to have a baby?
Holistic Preconception Care aka Pregnancy Preparation
Your baby’s health starts before conception and it starts with you.
Getting mom and dad’s bodies into tip top shape prior to conception increases fertility, prevents pregnancy complications, keeps mom glowing and more comfortable, and most importantly, gets your baby off to an amazingly strong beginning.
Preparing for pregnancy is probably the single most important investment you can make for a happy healthy baby and child, easy conception and a wonderful full-term pregnancy.
The ideal time to seek preconception care is 6 months to a year prior to conception but even a couple of months of care can make a significant difference.
Why come to me for your Preconception Care? I think first and foremost, I take time to get to know you and your body, making sure it’s fully ready to grow a new life. I pay attention to and evaluate your current nutrient status, diet, digestive health, hormone levels, thyroid function and Environmental Toxic Load. As a Functional Medicine practitioner, I may recommend functional testing to determine nutrient status and toxic load. With this in depth information, I then create a protocol specific to you and your needs.
NOTE: Paying attention to your Environmental Toxic Load is super important and something unfortunately, mainstream doctors are not tuned into. Studies have shown that over 300 toxins are in the umbilical cord. I can not stress the importance of knowing and lowering your own toxic load and also preparing your home for baby to thrive. It can make a huge a difference in the number of allergies that crop up, along with baby’s overall behavior and development. This is an area of focus because I think it’s a super important one for baby.
