by Ysha Oakes, Master Postpartum Ayurvedic Doula
Learn little known, deeply transformative care practices for the powerful 6-8 week window after childbirth. This sacred window, called kayakalpa sootika in Ayurvedic medicine, is similar to many wise-woman practices found in older traditions throughout the world, though many of them with faded understanding and use. Many problems that modern moms face are seeded by inadequate care after childbirth, causing impacts for months, years, even decades to come. Using these ancient practices has been shown to eliminate or greatly reduce many of the common problems.
These stand-alone lectures have long been the core lectures of Sacred Window’s professional training courses. Due to popular demand, we are offering them as stand alone lectures, without imposing on you our curriculum structure, course notes, or study requirements. Each lecture provides part of the core theory and skills for daily postpartum wellness care after normal childbirth or clinical births, addressing common needs such as, breastfeeding issues; assessing and correcting breast milk quality as it influences baby’s tummy comforts and overall health, mood comforts and growth; planning for baby’s first foods and weaning while optimally supporting emotions, hormones, lactation, digestion and elimination for both mother and baby.
If you aren’t familiar with Ayurveda, we highly recommend that you take the Ayurveda Fundamentals webinars first, otherwise you may not understand the postpartum materials. Most of the Ayurvedic Postpartum lectures on Care and Nutrition build on Ysha’s Touching Heaven PDF companion books. You’ll get more out of the lectures if you also purchase the books.
