Pregnancy Support

You just found out you're pregnant...now what?

If this is your first pregnancy, you may be filled with a range of emotions and several questions. Which foods should you eat and which should you avoid? What medications or supplements are safe to take? Is there any way of ensuring baby is healthy?

No two people are alike and no two pregnancies are alike either.  Having a Naturopathic Doctor on your health care team during pregnancy is a safe and effective way of optimizing your pregnancy outcomes, reducing unwanted side effects, and preparing your body for labour and delivery. 

 

Dr. Shelly Ordon, N.D. works with pregnant women throughout each trimester. By providing nutrition and supplement support Dr. Shelly will ensure you are taking all the right steps to nourish you and your baby.  She will incorporate herbs, acupuncture, homeopathy and lifestyle counselling if and when necessary to reduce and eliminate unwanted symptoms associated with pregnancy so that you can feel your best from beginning to end. She is excited to offer My Healthy Pregnancy Plan for all expecting birthing people.
