North Bay Naturopathic Clinic

Pregnancy and Postpartum

Congratulations on your pregnancy!!

Now is the time to take the best care of yourself and your beautifully changing body.

As your body and hormones start to change it is important to support your pregnancy as naturally as possible to obtain optimal health for you and your baby.  Naturopathic Pregnancy Care is designed to help avoid many common conditions of pregnancy, or to treat them should they arise during your pregnancy.

Common Complaints of Pregnancy

  Iron deficient anemia
  Megaloblastic anemina (low B12/folate)
  Leg cramps
  Low back pain
  Urinary tract infection (UTI)
  Group B Streptococcus
  Candida albicans
  Edema (swelling)
  Pregnancy Induced Hypertension (PIH)
  Nausea & vomiting
  Gestational diabetes
  Varicose veins
  Pruritic Urticarial Papules & Plaques of Pregnancy (PUPPPs)
  Herpes gestationis (aka pemphigoid gestationis)




Natural treatments such as dietary counseling, acupuncture, nutritional supplementation, bodywork, homeopathic medicine and botanical medicine may be used to support you throughout each trimester, childbirth, and post-partum including breastfeeding.

I am happy to work supportively along with your midwife or maternity doctor. I will also encourage you to create a birth plan which will outline your needs during childbirth, delivery and post partum. With this in place, it is much easier for all of your care providers to work together to create the birthing environment you envision.
