In the second of two sections on a Naturopathic approach to pregnancy, Kellie Holland from Tonik Health and I chat about some more common issues that pregnant women deal with such as fatigue, urinary tract infections, mood swings, constipation, thrush and heartburn. We also answer some questions such as when to stop lying on your back, and how much caffeine you can have. We also discuss some recommendations for labour and birth preparation including positions, books and courses for birth and raspberry leaf.
