Pregnancy and Baby’s First Year
Relax into your natural birth with safe, gentle homeopathic remedies for all stages of your childbearing year.
A natural alternative for morning sickness and other complaints, homeopathy also provides valuable supports during labour, often helping women avoid unnecessary medical interventions.
Homeopathy can smooth the transition to motherhood in the postpartum period, healing mom and supporting breastfeeding.
Having had two natural, midwife assisted births myself, I have ‘been there’!¬† and I know how supportive homeopathy can be during this time of transition for you and your new family.¬†¬†¬† I can also connect you with information and referrals to other professionals such as doulas and lactation consultants in Ottawa. Feel free to call me 613-296-2937 if you would like to ask any questions about your situation,¬† or to book a consultation.
