Ensure you receive expert advice from a qualified practitioner like Claudia for best health during your fertility and pregnancy journey.
Preconception Care & Natural Fertility
Preconception Care is all about making better babies and ensuring you have a healthy and uncomplicated pregnancy. It is the ultimate in preventative medicine. By improving health in both parents 3-4 months before trying to conceive, the benefits include:
Increased chance of a successful pregnancy and live birth by 75%
Reduced rate of miscarriage and malformations
Prevention of many health issues during pregnancy such as stretch marks, gestational diabetes, pre-eclampsia and anaemia
A healthier and happier baby
A reduction in childhood illnesses such as allergies, asthma, behavioural problems and infections (like middle ear and respiratory infections)
Improved health of your baby later in life with a reduction of illnesses in adulthood including cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, obesity, metabolic disease, diabetes, depression and anxiety
An example of the power of nutrition: women with optimal zinc levels suffer less stretch marks, a shorter labour, less tearing, reduced risk of postnatal depression and their babies cry less and are easier to settle.
During preconception time Claudia will help you to prepare your body for pregnancy, including optimising your nutritional and general health, hormonal balancing, ovulation support as well as sperm health. These measures will put you in the best possible health to create your future baby. Claudia is trained in helping you chart your cycles to identify the most fertile time in your cycle, which can be different for each person.
Infertility and Subfertility
1 in 6 Australian couples have difficulty conceiving. Claudia will look at you as a couple and your individual health factors. She will identify the key factors affecting your fertility and help you to address them.
Claudia utilises the unique Liz Lalor Fertility Program which has a high success rate of 87% within 4 cycles. This rate is much higher than that of IVF.
It is particularly useful for unexplained infertility, ovulation problems, irregular cycles, no cycles, PCOS, endometriosis, poor egg quality, blocked fallopian tubes or recurrent miscarriages. The program can also be used as preparation for IVF as it has been shown clinically to improve IVF success rates.
Health during Pregnancy
Your baby is rapidly developing and relies on a large amount of nutrition to properly complete this growth and development and to achieve health and vitality. Nutritional requirements change frequently during pregnancy. Claudia will help to ensure you are at optimal nutrition at each changing stage throughout your pregnancy in order for:
The health of your growing baby and their developing organs and tissues
Your health during pregnancy
Ensuring you stay well and are best prepared for the birthing process and beyond.
Some common conditions which can be helped with natural medicine include:
Heartburn & indigestion
Constipation & haemorrhoids
Anaemia and other nutritional deficiencies
Blood pressure problems
Urinary tract infections
Back pain and ligament pain
Preparing for Labor - Traditional medicine tonics are used to help tone and prepare the uterus for birth, assisting to reduce the length of labour and helping in the recovery of the uterus and tissues post-labour.
Premature or Overdue Labour - Natural Medicines can help to avoid premature labour and miscarriages, or stimulate labour if overdue.
Homeopathic Birthing Kits contain a variety of remedies to assist a healthy birth experience. They can help with common problems during labour such as fatigue, back pain, failure to dilate, stoppage of labour, fears and panic. It is invaluable to have on hand during birth to help facilitate a smooth birth process.
Post-partum - Natural Medicines are effective at supporting post-natal health and healing:
Tissue healing and recovery post-vaginal or caesarean delivery including tearing, episiotomy, prolapse and haemorrhage
"I first went to see Claudia for pre-conception care in 2009. After being on birth control for some time I wanted to get my body in good condition before I conceived. Claudia was very friendly and extremely helpful in this regard. I now have a beautiful 3 year old daughter and another on the way.
Over the years Claudia has helped me with other things such as digestive problems, skin issues, and anxiety. The thing I love most is how comfortable I feel when I am talking to Claudia. She is very easy to talk to and makes you feel relaxed. Natural medicine is definitely a great alternative and Iím very happy to have found Claudia and I will continue to see her." Linda
