Looking to help turn your baby or get labour started?  Naturopathic approaches are also an effective option to:

Help turn a breech baby: A combination of acupuncture, moxabustion, hoemopathy as well as at home exercises can help turn a breech baby and help women avoid a cesarean section.

Help rotate a posterior baby: A baby in the occiput posterior position (“sunny side up”) can lengthen and increase discomfort in labour. Acupuncture, moxabustion, homeopathy and home exercises can help rotate a baby into the ideal position for labour and birth.

Naturally start labour in a postdates or “overdue” baby: A baby is officially “postdates” at 42 weeks of pregnancy. If you had a previous postdates baby (and perhaps you were induced) or you are 40 weeks pregnant and are curious about natural ways to start labour, there are many natural approaches that can help a woman avoid an artificial induction. Acupuncture, moxabustion, herbs, homeopathy and home exercises are gentle and effective ways to help prepare the cervix and get labour started.

 

 

” I help women achieve a vaginal birth after a previous C-section with a one-on-one program” 

Prepare for a VBAC: Most cesarean sections are performed on women who have had a previous c-section, however, many women are good candidates for a vaginal birth after c-section (VBAC). For healthy women and their low-risk pregnancies a VBAC is safer than a repeat c-section. If your healthcare provider has deemed you as a good VBAC candidate, then it is important that you prepare yourself for a positive labour and birthing experience! I provide a one-on-one program to help you achieve a successful vaginal birth that combines relaxation techniques and addressing previous birth trauma.
