BE MORE YOU WITH IV INFUSION THERAPY!
I’ve had severe nausea and vomiting experiences in pregnancy x 2 well into my second trimester and I was anemic and I needed an iron infusion.
I was pale AF, boring, dizzy, starving but no appetite and ready to punch glowing pregnant women in the face.
Harsh I know, but I keep it real here and that is how I felt.
I wanted my baby so bad, but I wanted my pregnancy and suffering over just as bad.
I should have gone to hospital and got hydrated, but I could not think of anything worse to do. I was NOT sitting in that waiting room. No way, no how.
Then in my last pregnancy, no one would touch me with a ten-foot pole and give my the iron infusion my body was screaming out for, just because I was pregnant!
Therefore, I've created the space I so desperately needed, as did so many of my past clients.
A welcoming space, that is warm, safe, non-judgemental and supportive by people who understand it.
A space where you do not have to jump through hoops to be infused for hydration or iron.

Iron is vital in your bodily function and making your red blood cells. You need a lot more red blood cells in pregnancy for your growing baby & placenta. Or maybe your feeling weak after birth and bleeding (losing red blood cells). If your iron levels are low, you may feel tired, lethargic, unable to complete simple tasks, dizzy and short of breath.
According to HER (Hyperemesis Education & Research) and the ACOG (American College of Obstetricians & Gynecologist) the first step in HG (Hyperemesis Gravidarum) treatment is rehydrate regularly with IV infusion. Hydrating fluids + adding a vitamin B multi dose. Anti-nausea medication can also be included in your infusion to really kick HG's backside!
Water is like liquid gold for our bodies. It is needed for you to be properly hydrated so you can function in pregnancy! However, when your fluid levels are low, it can trigger many symptoms that make you feel run down and can take a massive toll on your health. Physically and mentally!
