    I was interested in treating myself after delivery and am so happy I took this course. I learned so much and was looking forward to steaming again. I'm 4 weeks pp and believe steaming has helped with my healing process.

    Thorough and informative. Also the comments that people leave are GEMS, it really helps fill in all the blanks when people report on their experiences with clients and also asks a ton of diverse questions regarding the material. Keli is a light! She always responds so quickly!! She is extremely dedicated to what she does and in helping us in this profession to be our best. Postpartum steaming is TRULY INCREDIBLE and you would be missing out if you do not take this course. It is essential. Such a breakthrough! And there is no time limit on finding a postpartum practice client if it proves difficult at first to find someone.

    Postpartum vaginal steaming course

    Published by Unknown on 6th Jul 2020

    The course was full of information but still very easy to follow. I felt I had all I needed to be able to meet my client. I would have love having videos on different people from different cultures talking about their own traditions on vaginal steaming.

    There's so much here!

    Published by Melissa Hunter on 3rd Apr 2020

    Wow, this course was a lot more involved than I thought it would be. In a good way. Although I was a bit overwhelmed when I jumped straight to this course from the VSF, skipping the rest of the semester 1 courses. I ended up going back to do the courses in order, and that helped me get a much better grasp of the material here in the postpartum course. I can see now why it is in semester 2.

    Published by Devin on 3rd Apr 2020

    This course was amazing! I loved learning all of the ways that steaming helps to heal a woman's body after birth. I enrolled in the Perihydrotherapist program so I could help women take back control of their healing and this course embodies exactly that!
