    Pregnancy: What Naturopaths Wish You Knew

    I’m Dr. Kendra–a naturopathic doctor here at StoneTree Clinic. I have a general family practice with a special focus on prenatal care, postpartum care, and pediatrics. I’ve always been passionate about prenatal care long before I became a mom myself. Something I wish everyone knew about pregnancy is that studies using MRI imaging and blood tests show that the physical demands of pregnancy and childbirth are equivalent to that of an athlete training for the Olympics or running a marathon.

    Your 9 month old. Baby development. Newborn care.

    Today we are going to study about Baby development: Your 9-month-old What can my baby do at nine months? Playtime with your baby is becoming more fun.

She probably understands more from your tone of voice than the actual words you use right now. Childproofing your home will help keep her out of harm’s way. When will my baby start walking? Your baby is getting…

    Fertility and Pregnancy: Extra helpings – Ep 5. Part of the ‘Food as Medicine’ online course series

    MELISSA ADAMSKI: Hi everyone. We’re here to discuss some common questions that we get around the area of the microbiome, probiotics and also gestational diabetes risk. So Nic, can you tell us a little bit more about about that? NICOLE KELLOW: Yes, thanks for having me Mel. One of the topic — the hot topics at the moment is the gut microbiota and can we change it in a positive way during pregnancy to perhaps reduce that person’s risk of developing gestational diabetes? Or if, if a person currently has gestational diabetes, can we improve their blood glucose level using probiotics to the point where they may not need to…

    Pain and Cramping During Pregnancy: When to Worry | Parents

    Pain is incredibly common in pregnancy. It’s not easy to carry around a growing uterus for nine months.
