Yoo Fai: Thai Care for Postpartum Mamas


This one day workshop focuses on caring for women during the postpartum time.  It is open to massage therapists and also to pregnant women who would like to plan for how to best care for themselves after giving birth. 

In the summer of 2017 I spent a month in Thailand, during which time I traveled into the jungles of the far north to learn from kind hearted midwives, in a continuing project of prenatal and postpartum care research that I began nearly 20 years ago. 

In this course we will cover nourishment, warmth and rest for women in a depleted state, belly binding to help support healing of organs, abdomen, and pelvic floor, as well as to prevent postpartum incontinence, and herbs for the postpartum time.
