Preconception to post-natal health: case studies and clinical pearls, with guest speaker Catherine Jeans

Date: July 6, 2016
Time: All-day

This webinar will give you an interesting insight into the practicalities of working with women and couples as they go through their fertility journey, from pre-conception, through to pregnancy and post-natal recovery. Catherine presents this online lecture through the use of key case studies, highlighting:
• The importance of supporting the adrenals for female fertility, and how this may impact on progesterone levels
• Key functional tests which may help you understand what may be preventing conception and successful pregnancy outcomes
• How to work with women going through assisted conception
• How to become a “fertility detective” and support couples with unexplained fertility issues
• Using a 3 month window between trying to conceive again – key supplements for optimal results
• Managing common problems found in pregnancy – iron deficiency anaemia to hyperemesis gravidarum
• How nutritional therapists can support women before birth and the early post-natal recovery – what really needs to go in the hospital bag!
• Preventing post-natal burn out – many women, especially after their second pregnancy, experience post-natal burn out after roughly 6 to 9 months after birth. Why is this and how we can we support women through this?
