Naturally Designed Pregnancy & Early Childhood CEPEC
Instructor: Alexandra Hurtado BA, CNP, ND
This eight-session course focuses on our body’s natural ability to design and nurture a growing baby. We examine a number of key reasons the body deals with infertility, how to track fertility and enhance it. We look at supplementation, what is safe and what is not. We examine each trimester; look at labour and delivery of a healthy newborn and finally, the stages of feeding. We will focus on the best nutritional approach using scientific research, resources, and sound holistic practices.
Alexandra Hurtado continues to shine as a Continuing Education faculty member with an expertise that has supported those who’ve taken the course both professionally, and personally! This will mark her sixth successful year running the program twice a year, at both campuses. A generous volume of practice knowledge of infertility and reproductive care will be shared to allow participants of the course to explain the body’s complex processes in ways that clients can understand, relate to and comply with practitioner protocols for favourable outcomes!
