About The Pregnancy Naturopath Melbourne
As a Pregnancy Naturopath & Midwife I support you to achieve health naturally, from your conception, throughout the pregnancy, childbirth and beyond.”
Carmen – The Pregnancy Naturopath, Melbourne
As both a Pregnancy Naturopath and a mother, I understand that leading a busy life can have detrimental effects on your health and wellbeing. Using naturopathy, I assist you in creating the ideal environment to conceive and support you through a healthy pregnancy from start to finish. Pregnancy naturopathy can provide you with nutritional advice and information on safe, high quality supplements. I provide your growing baby with nourishment and help you achieve a healthy pregnancy, rewarding birth experience and increased confidence into motherhood.
With over 20 years experience in women’s health including midwifery, pregnancy naturopathy, delivery suites, postnatal wards, neonatal nurseries and specialist clinics, I understand how natural therapies can work alongside western medicine enhance fertility. A healthy pregnancy, baby and family is always the goal, so I only use products that are safe and trusted.
During my own pregnancies, I found it frustrating and difficult to find a health practitioner who had experience with pregnancy naturopathy in Melbourne, as well as a more holistic approach to health. But I was able to apply my knowledge to my own pregnancies as well as treat my two children with the best natural health care possible.
Once I decided to specialise in pregnancy, fertility, new mothers and children, I haven’t looked back.
As a Pregnancy Naturopath, my treatments and advice include:
- which foods to eat for each trimester of pregnancy
- focused, effective, high quality pregnancy supplements relevant to growth stages
- preventing and managing gestational diabetes when pregnant
- explanation of hospital procedures and testing
- management of conditions such as morning sickness, high blood pressure, heartburn, constipation, during pregnancy and sleeping difficulties
- childbirth options and support
- breastfeeding advice for pregnant women
- baby health
Assisting women achieve healthy pregnancies with support and treatments through pregnancy naturopathy and into motherhood is incredibly special. It’s what keeps my passion for naturopathic health alive.
