Pregnancy support

Pregnancy is an exciting time for women, but it also comes with many questions on how to optimize health for both mom and baby.  Current research suggests that the choices made in pregnancy can shape a child’s health and determine the long-term risk for a growing number of diseases.  Patient-centred medical care during pregnancy works with women to educate themselves about optimal nutrition, supplementation and lifestyle during pregnancy and also address any pregnancy related concerns that may arise.  This care extends beyond birth to the “4th trimester” to support women during the postpartum period. 

Some common pregnancy-related conditions include: 
  • General health promotion

  • Nausea and vomiting

  • Anxiety and depression

  • Insomnia and sleep support

  • Hyperemesis gravidarum 

  • Constipation, heartburn and other digestive concern

  • Gestational diabetes

  • Fatigue and energy optimization

  • Preeclampsia

  • Urinary tract and other infections

  • Edema and swelling 

  • Iron deficiency anemia

  • Leg cramps and restless legs

  • Birth education

  • Labour and delivery

  • Postpartum and breastfeeding

Naturopathic postpartum support

The transition into motherhood can be a very exciting, but overwhelming time. The postpartum period doesn’t end at six weeks, the time when most families are discharged from their pregnancy and birth care providers and neither should post partum care.  Dr. Shaw works with patients beyond those early days and creates safe, non judgemental, evidence-based treatment plans to keep both parents and baby thriving. The goal is to make sure you are well informed and supported every step of the way so you can make the best decisions possible for you and your family.
