Pregnancy and Birth
One of Katherine's greatest passions as a Naturopath is working with you on your journey through pregnancy to help you have the healthiest pregnancy possible. Katherine can assist you to feel great during your pregnancy, and guide you in making choices that will help your baby reach his or her full potential.
The pregnancy program is designed to support you and your baby during this time of rapid growth and change. The emphasis will be on supporting you and your developing baby with appropriate diet and lifestyle advice as well as nutritional supplementation when needed. Nutritional requirements change throughout each trimester.
As your pregnancy progresses, the emphasis shifts towards preparing you physically and emotionally for the birth of your baby. Education is an important part of the pregnancy program, providing knowledge and support. This helps women to feel empowered during the birthing process.
