New beginnings, life with baby.
The much anticipated moment has arrived! For all parents alike, this is a great time of transition. Naturopathic support is warmly welcomed by families to explore important post-natal topics such as breastfeeding, fatigue, post-partum depression and baby wellness. A follow up visit with mom is scheduled 6 weeks post-partum, and an initial visit for the baby is recommended within the first 2 months of life.
