As a Pregnancy Naturopath & Midwife I support you to achieve health naturally, from your baby’s conception, throughout the pregnancy, childbirth and beyond.”
Carmen – The Pregnancy Naturopath, Melbourne
As a mother, I understand that leading a busy life can have a detrimental effect on our health. So with natural therapies, I assist you in creating the ideal environment to conceive, as well as support you through a healthy pregnancy from start to finish. Pregnancy naturopathy can provide you with the right nutritional advice and high quality, safe supplements to meet your pregnancy demands. I will provide your growing baby with a nourishing environment and optimal health that will help you achieve a healthy pregnancy, rewarding birth experience and confidence leading 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 work alongside western medicine. A healthy woman, baby and family is the goal and I only use products that are safe and trusted.
During my own pregnancies, I found it frustrating as it was hard to find a health practitioner who had experience with pregnancy 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. Treatment and advice include but are not limited to:
- eating right for each trimester of pregnancy
- focused, effective, high quality supplements relevant to the growth stages of your pregnancy
- preventing and managing gestational diabetes
- explanation of hospital procedures and testing
- management of conditions such as morning sickness, high blood pressure, heartburn, constipation, sleeping difficulties
- childbirth options and support
- breastfeeding advice
- baby health
Assisting women achieve healthy pregnancies with support and treatments through pregnancy and into motherhood is incredibly special. It’s what keeps my passion in holistic health alive!
