Pregnancy & Functional Medicine
Supporting both your health and the health of your unborn baby during pregnancy
Functional Medicine support during pregnancy
As the UK's largest integrative functional medicine clinic, we take great pride in helping our clients nourish and prepare their bodies for pregnancy. Pregnancy is one of the most nutritionally demanding periods in a woman’s life and your own nutritional status may have an impact on your baby’s development. Your body prioritises your baby’s needs over yours so when not enough nutrients are available your reserves may be depleted which can have an impact on your health during and after pregnancy.
Over the last 10 years we have supported numerous clients during their pregnancy to ensure the mother’s body is in good condition, well-nourished and able to provide the necessary nutrients throughout the duration of pregnancy.
As an award-winning clinic we are proud to of received the UK’s highest award from Integrative Healthcare & Applied Nutrition (IHCAN).
How can Functional Medicine benefit you during pregnancy?
Adopting an holistic healthcare approach during pregnancy incorporates considerations of stress, sleeplessness, nutrition, exercise, changes to habit and routine, and other elements.
Functional medicine helps with the physical structures of the body. Changes to bone structure, tendons, and muscles which can all be stretched or stressed during pregnancy can be supported, and those tensions eased through a functional medicine approach.
How we can help you using the functional medicine approach?
At the London Clinic of Nutrition we adopt a personalised approach to Pregnancy, ensuring our clients receive a tailored care-plan, resulting in the healthiest pregnancy possible, maintaining mental wellbeing and alleviating the risks posed by medication and other medical interventions.
As part of our consultation we asses in depth your medical history, looking at your personal health goals, your health history, current and past symptoms, nutrition habits, lifestyle, and mental and emotional stressors. Then, our practitioner will work together with you to develop a plan that is individualised for you.
