PROFESSIONAL SUPPORT FOR A NATURAL PREGNANCY
Brooke Lee Naturopathy offers a high standard of care for pregnant women and their partners. We believe birth is sacred and women should be honoured during this time.
Care focuses primarily on ensuring adequate nutrition for optimal maternal and foetal health, natural management of pregnancy symptoms such as nausea, fatigue, heartburn, high blood pressure, high blood sugar, fluid retention etc., and the use of natural remedies to prepare the body for an optimal and natural birth. Physical examinations such as blood pressure, blood sugar, fundal height, baby’s positioning and foetal heart rate are optional.
We care for mothers from as early as pre-conception, right through to their fourth trimester and beyond. Acknowledging and honouring the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of birth in a truly holistic approach to prenatal healthcare.
We believe knowledge is power and place a strong emphasis on educating women and their partners about what to expect throughout each stage of pregnancy, birth and postpartum. Topics include physical changes; baby's positioning; nutritional needs; medical intervention such as testing, vaccination and induction; breastfeeding; postpartum recovery and more.
This service is best suited to those looking to have a natural, intervention free pregnancy and birth, outside the medical system. All services are optional depending on the level of care the mother feels she needs.
One of the most distressing things a parent can experience is when their child falls ill. It's hard to know the correct thing to do (and when to do it) to ensure our child's wellbeing.
Brooke Lee Naturopathy focuses on prevention, rather than cure when it comes to maintaining children's health. As best as possible, we aim to build a strong immune system, keep hormones in a balanced state, calm the nervous system and establish good digestion in order to reduce the occurrence of illness and/or imbalance. And this can begin at any stage of a child's life, from preconception to adolescence and everywhere in between.
Of course it is inevitable our children will get sick. They may even be born with a congenital condition or develop a chronic disease. This is where natural medicine can help, either as the sole form of treatment or in collaboration with conventional medicine. At Brooke Lee Naturopathy we use herbal medicine, nutritional medicine, food as medicine, energetic medicine and healthy lifestyle practices to support the body's natural ability to self heal.

We offer support in the areas of general wellbeing, nutritional deficiencies, food intolerances, allergies, digestive issues, recurrent colds/flus/ear infections, skin conditions, hormonal imbalances, genetic conditions, syndromes, behavioural issues, emotional wellbeing, immunisation alternatives and more.
