Guelph pregnancy and postpartum care


Perinatal Care


The pregnancy and postpartum period brings with it a huge number of hormonal, physical, emotional and lifestyle changes.  I support pregnant and postpartum mothers, providing you with safe tools and education to combat any ailments, fears or difficulties you may face. I work in collaboration with your Midwife, Family Doctor, or Obstetrician.  I provide educational information to prepare for a healthy and effective labour and delivery; breastfeeding support; and suggestions for postpartum recovery, hormone balancing, energy and mood.
