Why You Need Naturopathic Prenatal Care
The Evidence-Based Naturopathic Endocrinology Care You Have Been Looking For
From the moment, you experience a positive pregnancy test, your health goals and needs are no longer solely about you but about the health and well being of your baby. Patients seeking integrative support for their pregnancy needs already know that their total health and wellness impacts the health of mom and baby. Unfortunately, many women can feel overwhelmed and confused by the vast, sometimes, contradicting, information available about pregnancy. Many women feel lost between their medical visits and the deep rabbit holes of the internet causing them to feel overwhelmed as to how to make the right health choices during pregnancy and beyond. Working with our dedicated team of providers from preconception to birth can help a couple create a healthy strategic plan that is unique to their needs. This approach to medicine helps bring together the power of both naturopathic and conventional medicine to improve both your health, and the health of your future baby. By using evidence-based integrative approaches, we help bridge the gap between conventional and naturopathic medicine to provide couples effective strategies that are combining with your current obstetric care.
Comprehensive Prenatal Care
At NMD Wellness of Scottsdale, we believe in assessing patients throughout their pregnancy along side their medical team. We offer early risk assessment tools, glucose tolerance testing, nutrient screening, comprehensive pregnancy and hormone-history and have the ability to prescribe treatments such as thyroid hormone or progesterone to help a couple throughout their pregnancy journey. Couples leave their appointment feeling calm and confident that they are making positive health choices to enhance their pregnancy and feel supported in their journey towards motherhood. The goal of comprehensive prenatal care is to provide support guidance and support often lacking from your current prenatal visits. From in-depth discussions about nutrition, lifestyle modifications, exercise and supplementation, we help patients feel heard and educated about their health throughout their pregnancy.
