Your pregnancy is an exciting time, but for many women it may also feel like a roller coaster. Your growing baby, fluctuating hormones, and emotional shifts cause everything to change during this time. At BodaHealth, we get this, and are committed to supporting you during your pregnancy by:
- Providing an emotionally safe and supportive environment for your care
- Addressing common pregnancy symptoms as they arise
- Helping to anticipate, manage, and prevent problems proactively so they don’t require medical treatment
- Providing you with safe, effective, and drug-free treatments
What We Offer
At BodaHealth, we have practitioners trained in a number of healing approaches to provide you with the best variety of options possible.
Acupuncture is an effective form of treatment that has been used in treating pregnancy-related conditions for thousands of years. Regular acupuncture treatments throughout your pregnancy ensure that both you and your baby stay comfortable and healthy, and it helps to reduce the likelihood of medical intervention.
Although acupuncture has a long history of effectiveness, modern scientists have only recently validated these findings through research. Scientists have documented that acupuncture is effective for pelvic and low back pain during pregnancy, morning sickness, depression, and pregnancy-induced headaches. It is also effective in improving sleep quality in pregnant women.
At term, acupuncture helps to ripen the cervix and promote an efficient labor. And after your baby arrives, continued acupuncture treatments help speed your recovery and increase your strength during the first weeks of new motherhood.
We provide naturopathic medicine to support your health and that of your baby. Our naturopathic doctors provide pregnancy support in a number of ways. They are able to assess your diet and digestion to make sure you and your baby are getting the right nutrients. In addition, they are able to treat a wide range of symptoms that arise throughout each trimester, including morning sickness, acid reflux, and constipation, to name a few.
Our naturopathic doctors are here to help in managing any complications that may occur during your pregnancy. They can preemptively treat anemia, gestational diabetes, and high blood pressure in many cases, avoiding medical intervention. In addition, while our naturopaths are committed to providing natural treatments, they are able to prescribe Western medications when necessary.
At BodaHealth, massage therapy also has an important place in pregnancy care. Massage may be recommended to reduce stress, calm the nervous system, alleviate muscle cramping, and treat the aches and pains that arise in your changing body.
