Pregnancy Q & A

When should I start pregnancy care?

When you start pregnancy care depends on your stage of pregnancy. Ideally, pregnancy care starts before conception.

If you have future plans for pregnancy and want to pursue a natural experience, now is the time to schedule a consultation with Dr. Laura Miramontes, ND, at Heal SD. Preconception care ensures your pregnancy starts out in the healthiest way possible.

If you’re already pregnant, Dr. Laura Miramontes, ND, recommends scheduling your first pregnancy care appointment as soon as possible.

What can I expect during pregnancy care?

You can expect patient-centered, compassionate, and holistic pregnancy care at Heal SD. The specifics of your pregnancy care depend on your unique health needs and goals.

During your preconception visit, Dr. Laura Miramontes, ND, asks about your typical day, performs an Ayurvedic pulse assessment, and requests advanced lab testing. That helps Dr. Laura Miramontes, ND, identify imbalances that affect your health.

In Ayurvedic medicine, it’s recommended that women begin preparing their womb about three months before they plan on trying to conceive. Garbha Sanskara is an Ayurvedic practice for womb preparation and includes herbal treatments that strengthen bones and improve health.

Dr. Laura Miramontes, ND, also teaches you how to manage stress through breathing exercises and meditation.

What can I expect after pregnancy?

Postpartum care is an important part of your pregnancy care and an important time in your life. Life after the birth of the baby can feel overwhelming, and you may experience hormonal changes that affect mood and well-being.

Dr. Laura Miramontes, ND, leans on natural medicine and Ayurvedic medicine to restore your body’s natural balance following the birth of your baby. She also provides natural therapies to help women struggling with postpartum depression.
