The journey through pregnancy is one that is unique for every woman. To nurture is a part of who we are, and as women it can sometimes be easier to nurture those around us before ourselves. Pregnancy is a time where taking care of yourself can directly influence the health and wellness of your child, it is a time for you to get to know yourself and what you need to stay balanced and healthy.
THE FIRST TRIMESTER is a time of rest and building. Your body, mind, and emotions are all adjusting to this new state of being while welcoming a new life and creating space for it to grow. Here the theme is to listen! Listen to your body, listen to your emotions and listen to your mind. What is it that you need, crave and desire for yourself. We will help you fine tune what nutrients you need and require for this stage and teach you ways to keep your energy up while you are busy create another human being!
THE SECOND TRIMESTER is known as the “honeymoon phase”, your energy is up and you feel like you can do anything! As every pregnancy is different so are the stages for each woman, while some have no complications, others have to deal with high blood pressure, gestational diabetes, constipation etc. We can support you naturally and effectively to make your pregnancy as comfortable as possible.
THE THIRD TRIMESTER is a time for preparation and nesting. Your body knows just what to do and we are here to support you through this transition into the birthing stage. We will teach you about the different stages to expect, remedies you can take for ease, and herbs you can take to prepare the uterus for the birth. As important as it is to prepare the body physically, even more important is the emotional work to create stability for the change that is to come.
