A healthy baby begins with a healthy mother. To ensure that you have the best chance of conceiving a healthy child, we offer a complete maternal evaluation focusing on nutrient deficiencies, environmental toxins, pesticides, harmful petrochemicals, heavy metals, dietary evaluation, and hormonal balancing. For example, birth control pills induce deficiencies of B-complex vitamins which are needed for normal fetal development. If no testing is done and a woman conceives soon after discontinuing these pills, an abnormal pregnancy could result. Similar unfortunate consequences could occur from any of the hundreds of other nutrient deficiencies. Traditional medicine recognizes the need to ensure maternal health during pregnancy and women are advised to take traditional prenatal vitamins; however, much more can be done. We use the advanced testing options available to us to ensure that, at the time of conception, the future mother is at her optimal state of health.
