  • Homeopathic Consultations
    9:00 am-4:00 pm
    Mon/Nov/2017

    Dr Candice Naida Barnard, (M. Tech. Hom. & B. Phys. Ed.) is a registered homoeopath and teacher.

    Consultations at Genesis Maternity Clinic

    Homoeopathy is used in pregnancy, childbirth and post-labour care. Pregnancy and childbirth is a profound and unique time in a woman’s life, a time of evolution when she blossoms into motherhood, and the family is born. Homoeopathy offers the birthing women a gentle, yet powerful, support to overcome many challenges along the way.

    During pregnancy homeopathic treatment can help with problems such as anaemia, anxiety, breech position baby, morning sickness, constipation, diarrhoea, headaches, piles, sinusitis, coughs and colds, heartburn, backache, thrush, mood swings and exhaustion.

    In labour, there are many effective remedies that can help deal with possible problems during childbirth such as pain, prolonged labour with a slow dilating cervix and exhaustion. Homoeopathy can also help induce labour and change the baby into a better birthing position.

    After the birth, your body goes through a series of physical, emotional and hormonal changes. Homeopathy can help rebalance the body on all levels and promote swift healing after the delivery. For example after-pains, bruising, breastfeeding difficulties, sleep problems and post-natal depression.

    Homeopathic Consultations are held on:
    • Mondays : 09:00 to 16:00
    • Thursdays : 09:00 to 16:00

  • Prenatal Yoga
    6:00 pm-7:15 pm
    Tue/Nov/2017

    Recommended by most doctors and midwives, prenatal yoga offers a multitude of benefits to both mother and baby throughout pregnancy, during birth and beyond.

    Prenatal Yoga Classes are facilitated by J’anaki Ra, founder and owner of Yoga Mama.

    Benefits of Pregnancy Yoga:
    • Joint exercises – perfect for poor circulation, swelling/water retention and excellent to improve mobility. Also prepares the body for squatting and other birthing positions.
    • Gentle Stretches and strong postures – maintains supple and toned muscles. Builds strength.
    • Breathing – balances the autonomic nervous system which regulates the major systems of the body and controls hormonal secretions. Deep breathing increases the intake of oxygen to both mother and baby. ‘Birthing breaths’ aid in the preparation for a calm birthing.
    • Yoga Nidra – During this relaxation technique one gains an abundance of energy from gaining the equivalent of 2 hours deep sleep in just 20 minutes! Yoga Nidra  also regulates fluctuating blood pressure and  promotes inner communication between you and your child, as well as assisting in the release of any impressions associated with the fear of birthing.
    • In addition, by developing a deeper awareness of your body, a powerful connection between a mother and her child is established.
