    Steaming for labor preparation makes so much sense and Keli does an excellent job of taking a holistic approach that puts steaming within a larger framework. The interviews are full of information and are inspiring. Steaming during labor will become a common practice like having a birth tub. Let's make it happen!

    This course helped me be able to guide a dear friend through steaming for labor prep so she wouldn't need to rely on medical induction. And it WORKED. I learned so much, thank you!

    Labor Prep for myself

    Published by Mary Brown on 22nd Aug 2020

    This was an excellent course! I signed up to prepare for my own labor and do believe the steaming plan aided in a quick delivery for a first time mom, over age 40. Delivered exactly on due date

    Prepare the body for labor

    Published by Shannon on 23rd Jun 2020

    I took this course at the end of pregnancy and was able to find first hand the benefits of steaming for labor preparation. I had a posterior positioned baby "sunny side up" but was able to birth him naturally without any tearing (9.9lb baby). I believe that's my testimony to the power of 3 weeks steaming before labor. It helped the vaginal tissues do their job and bounce back. I'm really hoping to share this with so many women.

    Letting women reclaim the experience of birth by taking back control over their bodies and birth. This knowledge is invaluable!

    Steaming for Labor Prep

    Published by Femke Lemberg on 3rd Feb 2020

    This course contains revolutionary information.
    Giving women back the tools to progress into labor with natural and effective methods.
    To think that so many women can be supported in these ways before and during birth is next level empowerment for all involved.
    From my perspective i can see this resulting in the
    prevention of unnecessary medical interference, giving women and their baby's back their birth right & therefore reducing the chances of birth trauma.

    I was my own Practice Client, it was fantabulous!

    Published by Kanika on 17th Sep 2019

    I got to be my own Practice Client for this course because I happened to be pregnant and near due when I took this course. I learned so much on how steaming can change the conversation in labor rooms. Where I'm from the nurses use an enema made out of soap and warm water as a "natural" way to induce labor. I want to invite them to try vaginal Steaming instead. It's so much more relaxing, comfortable, and uplifting. I was this close to getting a C-section. But the steam opened up my cervix to 8cm in very little time.

    This needs more exposure in hospital labor rooms and maternity wards.

    Thank you Keli Garza for this great work you put together for us!

    Labor Prep Steaming

    Published by Laura on 2nd Sep 2019

    Steaming for labor prep is one of my all time favorite things to use steaming for. Having this is as a tool is a game changer if you are a doula, birthkeeper, or midwife. It makes such a huge difference in the labor and birth, that I could even consider going back to doula work after taking this class! Would like to have a bit more teaching in this class on the contraindications of labor prep steaming, but overall very cool class!
