Root Whole Body Blog

At Root we specialize in both prenatal and postnatal care by partnering with the mother to optimize their health and well-being. What that looks like can be variable from person to person, however, we typically focus on foundational components in which health is so important, such as nutrition, stress management, and sleep.

why choose naturopathic pre & postnatal care

The pre and postnatal season can be incredibly challenging on the body and mind, especially as you're growing a baby and then those first few months right after delivery. There's a lot that we can do as naturopathic doctors to support your body optimally during that process.

In general, there's not a huge understanding around herbal medicine in regards to safety with pregnancy and breastfeeding. We tend to support mothers with supplements, vitamins, nutrients, as well as specific nutrition and meal plans to help optimize the body to support your baby and yourself.
We also offer pelvic floor therapy, which can be really helpful prior to having a baby to support the delivery process as well as afterward to support the healing of those muscles.

who should choose naturopathic care?

Anyone that wants a different relationship, different conversations, and a more thorough experience. Whenever you choose naturopathic medicine, you're choosing a partnership. You're choosing to learn and evolve with someone as your doctor. With one of our incredible practitioners in your back pocket, you have the opportunity to ask more questions, dive deeper when we have bigger concerns, and have someone who knows and understands your whole body. We are on your team.
An under talked about demographic in hormone health is in the context of preconception care. From a fertility perspective, it can be difficult to get the full scope of a situation without finding out about the male partner. If we're not doing the labs or the sperm analysis, we can try for a long time without getting pregnant. So establishing that relationship and getting baseline components can optimize fertility options.

are there any products or resources you recommend?

Some of the best things you can do in the prenatal and postnatal season are massage and acupuncture. Having a baby is really hard on your body, these supportive measures can truly help work on the physical body as well as support your mental and emotional health.
