In this three-part series, we’re talking about all things pregnancy, prenatal, and postpartum care. This is a topic that doesn’t seem to be touched on as much as it should in women’s health topics, which is why this three-part series has been created!

In the second installment of the series, Dr. Michelle talks about the second and third trimesters of pregnancy and what you need to know. These are exciting times during pregnancy where women are really able to find their flow, use their intuition to successfully navigate their pregnancies, and develop that glow that we all hear so much about.

Have you ever heard of IV Vitamin Therapy? This is one of the treatments that are offered at the Poppy Clinic, you can receive it as a stand-alone treatment or as part of your holistic health care. IV stands for Intravenous. It is a 40-minute session during which you are administered a customized blend of vitamins intravenously, right into your bloodstream. The advantage of getting your vitamins this way is that the digestive tract is bypassed in order for you to absorb 100% of what you are getting, you are receiving the vitamins directly, and are able to get much higher doses of the vitamins than you would ever be able to get otherwise.

Did you know that 1 of 3 people have a digestive compromise? This means that even if you are eating a great diet or taking all of your vitamins, you might not actually be digesting and absorbing everything. IV Vitamin Therapy is the treatment that helps you absorb 100% of vitamins into your system.

Benefits of IV Vitamin Therapy:

- Boost your immune system

- Heal from chronic disease

- Fight off infections

- Boost your mood

- Improve sleep quality

- Calm your nervous system

- Health optimization

- Prevention of disease

- Anti-aging and collagen production boost
