    Postpartum Steaming

    Published by Naima Bond on 20th Nov 2020

    I finished the course work and I am looking for a participant to finish the course. I am a doula and I learned to steam in another course.I feel this has provided me more information and details to successfully steam all clients. Because I did the labor prep class, and I am going to combine them for a package. Many women do not think about postpartum period or hiring for that period. I can do a combined package and if issues arise I can identify and work with the Mom/ birthing person. I al ready do a postpartum planning session so I want this to also be included in that session. This course is so needed if you are a birth worker of any kind you should take this course.

    Whether you are a facilitator, a doula, a midwife, or expecting a baby yourself, you have got to take this course! Postpartum steaming IS what we are missing in our birthing healthcare system. Thank you Keli for your wisdom!

    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.

    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.
