    The Best Tool for Postpartum Healing

    Published by Meghan Kelley on 30th Sep 2021

    This course covers all the bases for Postpartum Steaming, I feel educated and prepared to help postpartum mothers with steaming as soon as they give birth up until after their period returns. This information is so amazing to learn and Keli teaches it in such a clear, understandable way. I can't recommend this course enough!

    This course is like ALL of Kelis courses a must for everyone, BUT especially if you're a doula, a midwife, or expecting a baby yourself, do yourself (and others) a favor and invest in this course, you won't regret it! This should be part of our birthing healthcare system. Thank you Keli for offering this!

    Another great course with a lot of information. I directly used Keli’s wisdom for my own postpartum and it was just amazing. I can highly recommend taking the course, as every woman should be supported in her postpartum with vaginal steaming. Thank you Keli

    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.
