1st Trimester - An Integrative Approach to the First Trimester of Pregnancy

The prenatal and perinatal periods are precious and exciting seasons of life, accompanied by significant physical and emotional transitions, and present a unique opportunity to optimize one’s health and to give your baby the very best start. At Integrative Health and Wellbeing we have cultivated a series of shared medical appointments beginning from Trimester 0 (Fertility/Preconception), continuing throughout pregnancy (Trimesters 1-3), as well as Postpartum (Trimester 4). 

 

During this Trimester One session, we will optimize you and your baby’s metabolic, cognitive, and nutrient state by discussing the best protein, fats, carbohydrates, and fiber sources for pregnancy. 

We will introduce Traditional Chinese Medicine nutrition principles, resources, and recipes beneficial for pregnancy. 

We will discuss the proper form of vitamins, minerals, and supportive supplements for various symptoms, deficiencies, and dietary patterns. 

We will cover integrative approaches to common symptoms including nausea and constipation. The benefits of yoga, acupuncture, aromatherapy, stress management, and lifestyle for optimal gestation will also be discussed.  

 

This session is best attended up through pregnancy week 13. 

 

This group visit is offered by Dr. Michelle Loy 

 

Since this is a medical visit, it is covered by most insurances and you would be responsible for co-pays/deductibles as you would for any in person physician visit.
