Integrated, Natural Approach to Preconception, Pregnancy & Postpartum Treatment

Naturopathy is the practice of looking at the whole body when assessing health and treating illness and combines philosophy, principles and traditional knowledge with modern scientific evidence to foster health. Our Naturopathic services are uniquely catered to support women through the critical phases of pre-conception, pregnancy, and the postpartum period.

Our approach is centred around the intricate connections between a woman’s body, mind, and environment. Recognising these stages as transformational, our Naturopathic treatments are designed to support women through the natural physiological and emotional transitions of motherhood.

Our services are not just about treating conditions but are focused on enhancing overall well-being, preparing the body for the journey of motherhood, and ensuring a healthy environment for the developing fetus. During postpartum, our naturopathy aims to support healing, replenish depleted nutrients, and balance the emotional and hormonal changes that new mothers experience.

Addressing All Health Conditions & A Focus On Prevention

Our specialised Naturopaths at Selph are experts in maternal health, offering personalised care plans that support women from pre-conception all the way through to the postpartum period.

Understanding that each woman’s journey to motherhood is unique, our naturopaths provide evidence based individualised care to help facilitate your pregnancy based on each trimester that you are in.

For pre-conception, we focus on the education of the couple around their bodies, healthy nutrition and wellbeing. The female partner will be taught about her menstrual cycle, helping her to understand the different stages, and her fertility window. The male partner will be taught about the fundamental role they play in conception success and the factors affecting sperm quality.

We have a 12 week program that explains the intricacies of the treatments to help maximise the effectiveness of a healthy and happy pregnancy. You can read more here.

During Pregnancy, we provide natural solutions to common pregnancy ailments like morning sickness, fatigue, and back pain, while ensuring the mother receives adequate nutrition for fetal development. Our approach also includes strategies to manage emotional wellbeing and prepare the body for childbirth. Based on where you are in your pregnancy 

Postpartum Care: The postpartum period is a time of significant change and adjustment. We look to help the new mum rebuild their strength and vitality after childbirth, focusing on nutritional replenishment and advice for breastfeeding, and natural treatments to balance hormones and support emotional health.

Additionally, our Naturopaths individually tailor treatments from a preventative perspective to address symptoms before they become a health issue or condition.

They can support you in your current diagnosis or health concern in conjunction with your primary health care provider to manage unwanted side effects or optimise dietary and lifestyle considerations.

All treatments undertaken are evidence based and prescribed on the basis of pathology investigations when required and thorough consultations.

What To Expect In An Initial Pre-Conception, Pregnancy or Postpartum Consultation

 Our initial consultations are thorough, encompassing a full review of health history, dietary habits, lifestyle, and stress levels, all of which are crucial for understanding the unique challenges and needs of each woman.

We delve into various aspects of maternal health, including sleep patterns, mental and emotional wellbeing, physical activity, and dietary habits. From this comprehensive assessment, we create a collaborative plan that addresses immediate health concerns and sets the foundation for your long term wellbeing.

This plan may include dietary adjustments, lifestyle changes, herbal supplements, and other natural therapies tailored to support maternal health.

Understanding The Naturopathic Principles

Our approach to maternal health is anchored in key naturopathic principles:

  1. The Healing Power of Nature: We believe in the body’s inherent ability to heal and maintain health. Our role is to support and facilitate this process, particularly during the demanding stages of pre-conception, pregnancy, and postpartum.

  2. Identify and Treat the Cause: We aim to uncover and address the underlying causes of any health concerns, rather than merely alleviating symptoms. This involves a thorough understanding of each woman’s health history and current lifestyle.

  3. First Do No Harm: Our treatments are designed to be gentle, non-invasive, and supportive, working in harmony with the body’s natural processes.

  4. Naturopath as Teacher: Empowering women with knowledge about their health and the changes they experience during these stages is a core aspect of our practice. We strive to educate and encourage women to take an active role in their health journey.

  5. Treat the Whole Person: Our holistic approach considers the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of health, recognizing the complex interplay of these factors in maternal well-being.

  6. Prevention: We focus on preventative care, offering treatments and advice that help avoid potential health issues related to mother

Collaborative Approach

As with all treatments at Selph Health Studios, your Naturopath will be able to see and discuss your past and current treatments with any other of the Selph practitioners you are being treated by. This ensures that your treatments and wellness plan are both cohesive and collaborative across all disciplines.
