Pregnancy Care

Prenatal & Postnatal

Why Naturopathic Medicine is essential to your pregnancy care – Let’s break it down.


preconception is an essential time to prepare the body for a healthy pregnancy. Dr. Tali will check your nutrient status as well as assess where improvements need to happen with resect to diet and lifestyle. Studies show that 6-12 months of prenatal care supporting the body before pregnancy is beneficial.

Prior to conception, Dr. Tali also focuses on improving egg quality, improving sperm quality, as well as increasing chances of pregnancy by balancing your hormones, especially if you have irregular periods. If you are coming off birth control, it can take up to 9 months to get a regular period. This is where Naturopathic Medicine can come handy in order to balance your hormones faster and make sure you are ovulating (see Post Birth Control Syndrome). If you have been struggling with infertility, we will get to the bottom of it and treat the root cause. Sometimes, depending on stress, weight and other factors, women have menstrual periods without ovulation. Acupuncture, herbs, diet and lifestyle can aid with that. Preparing the uterus is essential as this will flourish the baby for the next 9 months, botanical medicine is great for that.
