Details

Pregnancy is the greatest physical and nutritional demand window in the human lifespan. Recognising this, many Australians seek out integrative medicine practitioners to support them through this time. However, many of these practitioners lack the experience to confidently recommend effective dietary and lifestyle interventions and safely prescribe nutritional and herbal medicine. When clinically proven and evidence-based interventions are implemented, functional medicine practitioners are uniquely positioned to profoundly influence the health of both parents and bubs for the rest of their lives.

Integral to supporting patients through healthy pregnancies is an awareness of what preventative medicine involves & being able to identify early signs of those at risk of complication, and then having the confidence & skill to communicate this in a way that inspires change but does not cause undue alarm.

In this three part series Rhiannon shares her extensive clinical knowledge around pregnancy support, management of normal & complex pregnancies and birth preparation & support. 

⏰ Three x 2-hour sessions.

🗓️ Presented live 11am to 1pm Thursdays 16th & 30th May + 20th June, 2024*.

🎥 Ongoing access to recordings for 24 months.
