Course description:

Pregnancy and postpartum are extraordinary times in women’s lives that benefit from special guidance and attention. This course will lay the foundation for recommending basic ahara (diet) and vihara (lifestyle) for the mother. We will look at what is happening during each month of pregnancy according to western science and Ayurveda, and how we can adjust accordingly for each stage.

What do the classical texts say about pregnancy? How can we interpret ancient recommendations to be useful for modern life?

This course will cover pregnancy, birth, and the first two months postpartum. You will finish this module empowered and inspired to support women on their journey into motherhood with excellent health and the tools to handle imbalances.
