Pregnancy, Birth and Postpartum

Pregnant? Include a naturopathic doctor (ND) as part of your health care team. Your body is growing and changing. With it, your emotional, physical and nutritional needs are changing too. Dr. Rachel VandenBerg is an ND with a focus in women’s health, hormone balancing and pregnancy care. Dr. Rachel can help to guide you through the changing needs that arise in pregnancy, birth and postpartum.

Naturopathic pregnancy care can help to:

  • Answer questions about you and your developing baby.
  • Support your nutritional needs through diet, vitamins, and supplements.
  • Prevent or treat many of the common discomforts of pregnancy, including nausea and vomiting, anemia, constipation, hemorrhoids, heartburn, yeast infections, Group B Strep, and back pain.
  • Turn a breech baby.
  • Naturally support induction of labour.
  • Prepare you for labour, delivery, and achievement of your desired birth plan.
  • Support you through unplanned interventions.
  • Support postpartum healing, breastfeeding, and new-baby care.
  • Prevent childhood health concerns such as eczema, allergies and asthma.

Note that naturopathic care complements, but does not replace the care you receive from your midwife or obstetrician.
