An Integrative Approach to the First Trimester of Pregnancy

The prenatal and perinatal periods can be precious and exciting seasons of life accompanied by significant physical and emotional transitions. This unique time of life offers an opportunity to optimize your health and prepare your baby for 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). 

This Trimester 1 session, presented by Dr. Michelle Loy and Dr. Jillian Cohen, will cover a range of topics:

  • The best protein, fats, carbohydrates, and fiber sources for pregnancy; how to optimize your and your baby’s metabolic state, cognition, and nutrition
  • Traditional Chinese Medicine nutrition principles, resources, and recipes beneficial for pregnancy
  • The proper form of vitamins, minerals, and supportive supplements for various symptoms, deficiencies, and dietary patterns
  • Integrative approaches to common symptoms including nausea and constipation
  • The benefits of yoga, acupuncture, aromatherapy, stress management
  •  Lifestyle for optimal gestation 

This session is best attended up through pregnancy week 13. 

We accept most insurances. Your insurance may cover the 1-hour group session, but you may be responsible for a specialist co-payment per session. You will also be responsible if you have a deductible or co-insurance.
