TRADITIONAL naturopathy knows that during pregnancy, childbirth and up to eight weeks following the birth of a baby, there should be more importance placed upon a female maximising personal wellbeing.

Perhaps the most significant aspect during these times is to optimise vitality as well as nurturing the family fabric.

By optimising vitality prior to and during these times, a female is assisted by natures' inherent healing faculty.

The reward in achieving optimal vitality is wellbeing, which brings uncomplicated circumstances. However, when optimal vitality is insufficient, complications may arise.

For example, there has been credible estimate to suggest that one in six Australian couples experience infertility complications.

This figure equates to approximately 3 million Australians being directly impacted from infertility. As a result fertility clinic sector has evolved in providing a niche market. Established naturopathic practice has a different viewpoint regarding strategies to infertility complications, which varies to the aforementioned sector.

Naturopathy advocates that with great ingenuity infertility can be corrected through non-invasive herbal medication. A recent case comes to mind of a female who went through an IVF program, then fell pregnant only to experience miscarriage at seven weeks.

Upon presenting at the clinic a naturopathic herbal formula was prescribed. This became another happy outcome with promising indications, currently 16 weeks pregnancy. Throughout Australia traditional naturopaths are guiding full term pregnancies multiple times for the betterment and wellbeing of couples.

Naturopathy identifies causative factors as to why infertility has occurred and treats that functional cause. Furthermore, naturopathy holds the robust clinical viewpoint that infertility possibly may be nature's endeavour in protecting the female from an unsustainable full term pregnancy. Assist nature by correcting the cause and family history grows through a new generation.

Stillbirths occur at a general rate of one incident per 200 births.

Factors involved may include placenta or umbilical cord defects, bad health of the mother, recreational drug use, cigarette consumption or females aged over mid 30s or first time pregnancies.

For couples having gone through stillbirth, particularly the female, grief impacts upon personal wellbeing may be stressful.

While some factors that contribute to stillbirth are complicated, due to possible multi-dimensional conditions, naturopathic nutritional strategies coupled with botanic medicine aims to improve health prior to conception.
