If you are thinking about having a baby either now or in the future, it is never too early or too late to start preparing for a safe pregnancy and healthy baby.
Both men and women obviously have an important role to play in the conception and health of their baby. Foetal exposure to stress, toxins, under nutrition and obesity have been shown to play a role in the development of many common chronic diseases. Just as importantly as having a healthy pregnancy is ensuring both parents are t their optimal health prior to conception. By being prepared you are giving your baby the best possible start in life.
The six key ways to increase fertility involve:
1. Losing or Gaining Weight.
2. Addressing and assessing oxidative stress.
3. Managing stress.
4. Preconception detoxification.
5. Adopting healthy eating habits ensuring optimal nutritional status.
6. addressing any deficiencies.
7. managing any underlying issues affecting fertility.
Your practitioner will guide you through your preconception care, helping to optimise your health, increase your fertility and address key health issues before you become pregnant in order to keep you, your partner and your baby as healthy as possible.
Natural medicine can be used in conjunction with IVF and your practitioner will guide you to ensure optimal nutrition for both partners, improve essential fatty acid status and maintain healthy antioxidant status. Specific and individual support can be given where required to support the stress response, support thyroid function and metabolism, support estrogen clearance and optimise sperm quality.
Naturopathy can offer a safe, gentle and effective way to re balance and optimise your children’s health from newborn and through to the precious adolescent years.
By improving your child’s diet, identifying any potential food sensitivities and allergies (using laboratory testing), using herbal medicines (at appropriate safe doses for children) as well as appropriate lifestyle support, your child may be able to better manage and recover from a range of disorders such as:
- Fussy eaters
- Lack of energy
- Lack of appetite
- Ear infections
- Allergies e.g. food/environmental
- Skin problems e.g. eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis
- Digestive problems
- Recurrent infections
- Attention disorders
- Bed wetting
- Viral and Bacterial infections
As a Mother herself, Shannon loves children and looks forward to working with you to help support your child health as well as give you simple strategies to maintain lasting health for a lifetime.

Online Naturopathic Consultation - via Skype
At Mums & Bubs we understand that due to distances and the busy lives that people these days lead, or even being a new mum it may be difficult for you to physically come into our clinic and see us. Thanks to modern technology we are able to offer you the option of online consultations via skype or phone in lieu of coming into our clinic for your health concerns. This way you can have a health consultation in the convenience of your own home or office.
Skype also allows us to be more flexible with our consultation times, so we are not restricted to clinic hours, this is especially helpful if you work 9-5.
How to get started:
To get started with a Skype consultation firstly you’ll need to have Skype downloaded on your computer or iPad go the Skype webpage for more information: Skype
Once you’re up and running and have created a Skype ID you’ll need to do the following:
Add me to your contacts list (please do this before to our consultation time). My name is Shannon Stokes and my Skype ID is mums.bubs.nutritionist I’ll add you to my contact list as well. At our arranged time you’ll need to be at your computer and logged into Skype (status: online) I will video call you.
Once our consultation finishes I’ll send you any information that we’ve discussed along with, a proposed treatment plan as a word document to outline any suggestions &/or instructions as well as an invoice via email. I will advise you through your treatment plan of any supplements to be purchased and I will honour free shipping on your supplements should you need any.
Payment for our Skype consultation, supplements etc can be made by direct deposit online (your invoice will have all payment details).
Please note that in order for our consultation to run smoothly it’s important to have a good internet connection, if not it can lead to distortion and issues with clarity of sound & video. If this continues to happen I will call you to complete our consultation over the phone.
