Healthy Pregnancy Program

The Healthy Pregnancy Program is a ten month program designed to support Mom and Baby throughout all stages of pregnancy and postpartum by addressing typical symptoms that come up during pregnancy. Some treatments are timed at specific times, while others scheduled when you need them most. All treatments are individualized for you to provide the support needed to move through pregnancy with joy and grace. Kathleen has been treating women during pregnancy since 2007.

 

She is highly experienced in treating women during pregnancy.  This program is especially helpful for those who have suffered miscarriage in the past; required IVF or extensive ART to achieve pregnancy; or those who are under high stress and anxiety going into their pregnancy. Consistent treatment and on-going support throughout the pregnancy as well as post-partum support is included in this program.
