Whether you’re pregnant or not, the path you take on your health journey is critically important. Because of our commitment to women’s health and wellness and total care, we take every opportunity to give mom and baby the healthiest of beginnings. It’s why we emphasize women’s health and wellness through nutrition, massage therapy, acupuncture and exercise for every patient. Becuase every woman works hard to put others ahead of herself, self-care is becoming more and more important as part of women’s health and wellness. Let us help you take those moments to help care for yourself, for you cannot fill from an empty cup.
Providing your body with optimal nutrition is key throughout pregnancy. Our nutritionist, Meryl Brandwein, RD/LDN, will work with Dr. Chen and you to create an optimal plan where key nutrients are particularly important for fetal development and for keeping you healthy as well.
We encourage women to develop and maintain an exercise regimen prior to pregnancy and continue during and after pregnancy Check with us prior to starting or changing any routine.
Recent studies show that both massage therapy and acupuncture are a safe, gentle and effective way to address many symptoms experienced during pregnancy, especially since many traditional Western medications can’t be used during this time.
No matter what gynecological issue you have, whether it’s an abnormal pap smear, STD, endometriosis, or the need for contraception, the doctor will inform you of your treatment options, listen to your concerns and help you make treatment choices that are best for you.
