Abstract:

“Wellness” is defined as an active process of becoming aware of and making choices towards a healthy and fulfilling life. As our understanding of epigenetics grows, it is obvious that pregnancy is a time when we need to be supporting our clients to take an active role in creating wellness in their lives. This presentation will review the pregnancy experience from start to finish, including preconceptional counseling; what it entails and why it is important. Review obstetric care from trimester to trimester with a focus on the key areas where opportunities for creating wellness exist. Both routine obstetric visits and high-risk pregnancies will be examined. Learn how to improve outcomes by engaging your clients in actively taking responsibility for improving their health and wellbeing through things such as healthy eating, exercise and self-care.
