There are numerous hurdles and challenges that present during a woman’s pregnancy. As a pregnancy develops, vitamin and mineral needs change. We offer support and supplementation advise for three trimesters of a pregnancy.
Nutritional needs change dramatically once pregnant. As caloric and nutritional needs increase, often nausea and lack of appetite co-exist. This makes it challenging to meet nutritional and hydration needs, and there are many treatment options available.
Other common concerns that we treat during pregnancy are: leg cramps, insomnia, low/high blood pressure, headaches, restless legs, carpal tunnel, yeast infections, and common colds/ flus. With preparation, some conditions can be prevented such as: gestational diabetes, pre-eclampsia, positive beta-strep, and post term dates.
