Nicole offers a range of therapies, and will call on what is required for your individual case.
Herbal Medicine has been utilised since the dawn of humanity. Herbs contain complex arrangements of active phytochemicals, vitamins and minerals, and are very powerful medicines indeed. The majority of our modern pharmaceutical drug are actually synthesised from plant medicines. Herbs are most often administered in a tincture or tablet form, and sometimes in the form of a yummy herbal tea.
Homoeopathic medicines are highly diluted potentised substances that provide a subtle energetic stimulus to coax the body into a greater state of health. Homoeopathy was rediscovered over 200 years ago, and is an incredibly effective form of medicine.
Natural Fertility Education
Nicole holds a certificate in Natural Fertility Education, and thoroughly enjoys the process of empowering women through educating them on their own menstrual cycle. Whether it is natural contraception you require, or advice on maximising your fertile times, natural fertility education is a wonderful life skill to master.
The importance of pre-conception care for both partners has been proven in many studies. Preparing your body to be in prime condition for conceiving is of so much value to both you and your child. Check out http://www.foresight-preconception.org.uk/ for some interesting info on this subject.
Naturopathic care is highly effective in supporting couples utilising assisted reproductive techniques. Nutritional, herbal and homeopathic support can maximise sperm count and quality, egg quality and yield, along with building the integrity of the endometrial lining.
We also work to provide much needed emotional support and stress reduction for both partners. Naturopathic care reduces the side-effects of the procedures and medications used in processes such as IVF, ICSI, GIFT and AI, and we really see improvements in results.

Nature has many tried and tested remedies that are not only effective, but completely safe during pregnancy, birth and beyond.

Research indicates that woman who are supported by a Doula in their birth have shorter labour and far less medical intervention.
