Naturopathic medical support optimizes pregnancy by establishing excellent pre-natal health. It can reduce uncomfortable symptoms of pregnancy and promote a enjoyable experience of wellness that you deserve to feel as a pregnant woman. Using blood work and your current health status we create an implement a program involving clinical nutrition and some supplementation to set you up of a healthy and successful birth. We troubleshoot any discomforts together to find solutions.

2. Prenatal Course for New Mama, Papa/Support Person (4 sessions)
Would you like more support and preparation? I have put together this Prenatal course for women and their partners and birth supports. The 9 months leading up to becoming a parent for the first time, or a parent in a new way to more than one child is a journey of both preparation & embodiment. By taking this course you mark the course of your journey at regular intervals by checking in together, increasing your knowledge and awareness and staying in touch with a birth support guide.
- Where I came from, my ancestry and cultural and familial practices around birth, my healthy pregnancy (nutrition, supplements, exercise), what to avoid during pregnancy,
- Birthing options, informed consent, birth plans, the role of the partner
- Preparing for birth: physically, mentally emotionally, herbal and homeopathic supports (mother's cordial, peri-rinse, salve, oral dosing)
- Taking care of new baby: post birth, diaper changing, washing baby, safe sleep
This course is web based, unless you are located in my region, where we may meet together if possible. They will be a discussion together, with participation from you and your partner/support person. It's a time to learn more about the pregnancy process and birth experience to help prepare you fully to step into your supported role as new parent. The more we talk openly and discuss the process, the more comfortable and empowered you become in your journey.
The course will include some handouts including supportive medicines, birth plan outline, and instructions for newborn care. All participants will receive Dr. Ariel Jones' Guide to Healthy Pregnancy, Brith and Post-Partum Care.
