Multicultural Postpartum Care Practices
Eco-Postnatal Practitioner Training Workshops – (1 or 2 Day)
Incorporating eco-friendly wisdom into your business.
“In traditional parts of the world, most women begin their recovery from the 5th day after childbirth. In the U.S., women don’t even begin to think about recovery until after their six-week post-delivery check-up. There is a huge ’healing window of opportunity’ being missed by American women, which results in a weak and prolonged recovery. Women do not have to and should not wait this long.”
— Valerie Lynn, Author, The Mommy Plan
These intensive workshops present traditional after birth practices and guidelines like never before – using nutritional science, anatomy, and medical science. Why have they been around for so long and how do they work? You’ll find out about recovery options and alternatives that you never knew existed.
Traditional holistic healing practices are making a strong comeback. Why? Because the proof is in the effectiveness of the healing. Learn how managing post-maternity diet, activities, and personal care before the 6-week medical exam that supports and accelerates the body’s healing process.
