So you are about to grow your family. Congratulations!

There’s a lot to prepare – getting the baby’s room in order, making sure you have the right supplies, and arranging for time off work.

But there’s also a lot to do for your own health.

Pregnancy is a demanding and intense experience on your body. In some cases, it can mean an increased risk of complications, for both you and your baby.

Here at Mahaya Health, we can help.

If you have any underlying conditions which may lead to a higher-risk pregnancy, your Mahaya Health practitioner can provide a treatment plan. These conditions may include:

  • Hypothyroidism
  • Hyperthyroidism
  • Endometriosis
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Infertility
  • Hormonal imbalance
  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Kidney disease
  • Obesity
  • Being 40 years old or older

As well, your Mahaya Health practitioner can help you address lifestyle factors which may impact your pregnancy, including diet and sleeping habits.

Each body is different, and preparing for your optimal pregnancy can vary widely. Depending on your needs, you may benefit from treatments from a naturopathic doctor, acupuncturist, osteopathic manual practitioner, physiotherapist, registered massage therapist, or psychotherapist.

Call Mahaya Health today, and we’ll pair you with the best practitioner based on your needs.

Holistic Treatments During Pregnancy 

It’s no secret that your body goes through a lot during pregnancy. Other than puberty, it’s rare to find a life event that puts a human body through as much change.

From minor hiccups to major concerns, a lot happens during pregnancy. So it’s important at this time of your life more than ever to have healthcare solutions in place to give both you and your baby the best chance at a healthy life.

General aches and inconveniences may seem like minor issues, and most of the time they are. However, there are natural treatments available which can help ease their impact. You can find solutions at Mahaya Health for many of the more common minor pregnancy issues, including:

  • Morning sickness
  • Digestive concerns
  • Headaches
  • Iron deficiency anemia
  • Gestational diabetes
  • Insomnia & chronic fatigue
  • Leg cramps
  • Pelvic pain & discomfort
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Urinary tract infections (UTIs)
  • Lower back pain
  • Anxiety

If you’re facing significant physical pain and discomfort, you may benefit from treatment from an acupuncturist, osteopathic manual practitioner, a registered massage therapist, or a physiotherapist. And if you’re dealing with internal troubles, a naturopathic doctor or traditional Chinese medicine practitioner can provide you with botanical medicines and nutritional supplements to help manage them, and to complement the care you’re receiving from your OB or midwife.

As well, a pelvic floor physiotherapist can help your body prepare for the intense experience of giving birth, reducing risk of injury to both you and your baby and help with post-partum healing and recovery.

Contact Mahaya Health today to book your appointment. You’ll get a chance to sit down and talk with a practitioner who can meet your needs. They will listen to your concerns, answer any questions you may have, and help you better understand how you can maintain the level of health you want for both you and your baby.

Postpartum Treatments For Baby And Parent 

So you’ve finally given birth. This is a beautiful time of building a bond with your new child, as well as finding a new sense of normalcy. After pregnancy, your body goes through a large number of changes to adjust to life without having to worry about caring for a child in utero.

Your emotions may still be running high, and postpartum depression may sink in. Breastfeeding may prove to be more challenging than you thought. You may have sustained injuries during childbirth, like vaginal tearing or a caesarean section.

And all the while, you need to properly care for baby. There are a number of health issues a baby may face in the first months of their life, including:

  • Cradle cap
  • Skin rashes
  • Psoriasis or eczema
  • Colic
  • Sleep issues
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Food allergies or sensitivities
  • Thrush
  • Ear infections

Once your baby is born, the team at Mahaya Health can be one of your greatest resources. 

Our team of diverse healthcare practitioners will help you address your pregnancy health from as many angles as possible. The goal is to create an environment where both you and your baby can thrive.

You’ll get a chance to sit down with the best practitioner for your individual health needs. They will listen to your concerns, answer any questions you may have, and put together a treatment plan designed to help keep you and your baby strong and healthy.

Start building a healthier life in body and in mind.
