What does a Holistic Pregnancy Consultant do & Why Should I Hire One?
The pregnancy and birthing world is full of decisions, information, and internal and external changes, which are enough to make even the calmest amongst us a little anxious and overwhelmed. While there are many pregnancy-related professionals that you may encounter during your pregnancy, such as doulas, midwives, doctors, and childbirth educators, there is a gap in the resources and support that many trying and expectant parents want or need, especially during early pregnancy. A Pregnancy Consultant works to fill that gap and acts as your expert, support, guide, liaison, and sounding board. They are trained or certified professionals who have experience and education pertaining to pregnancy and childbirth, such as nutrition, breastfeeding, prenatal fitness, or postpartum care.
In hiring a Holistic Pregnancy Consultant, you can expect to receive the following:
Guidance on choosing a care provider and birthing facility
Pre-pregnancy, pregnancy, postpartum, and breastfeeding nutrition recommendations
Essential oil support during pregnancy, postpartum, and for infant care
A well formulated list of local resources for pregnancy, postpartum, breastfeeding, and infant support
Solutions for pregnancy discomforts using natural remedies
Discussion and processing of thoughts and feelings surrounding life changes
Information, books, and articles to assist in making pregnancy and childbirth-related decisions
