Vancouver Holistic Pregnancy and Postpartum Resources

I have gathered here some of my favourite Vancouver resources for pregnancy, birth and postpartum, helping you find the holistic practitioners and services you need to support your growing family. Be sure to also join me on facebook to keep connected with local events and resources.

Vancouver Area Holistic Practitioners for Pregnancy and Postpartum

I find my clients benefit greatly from Chiropractic, Naturopathic, Homeopathic and Acupuncture care in pregnancy and postpartum. Some of the practitioners listed also offer 24 hour “on-call” treatment in labor, ideal in cases of a long or challenging birth.
