She is dedicated to helping couples feel more supported throughout their journey to conceive healthy babies, and on improving the health of future generations.
In pregnancy, Dr. Erica provides detailed nutritional management and addresses common concerns such as fatigue, nausea, mood and blood sugar imbalances. She works with her pregnant patients to prepare for labour and promote breast milk supply. She supports new mamas during the post-partum years to help them regain their vitality and get their hormones back in check.
In addition to fertility and pregnancy, Dr. Erica routinely treats hormone concerns, such as PCOS, thyroid, acne, hair loss, irregular or painful cycles, insulin resistance and weight loss support.
With an avid interest in research, Dr. Erica has published in major scientific and naturopathic medical journals, and has been interviewed in several well-known magazines.
