Ayurveda has many wonderful ways to support health and well-being during the early postnatal period. In this short CPD Liese van Dam, will share with you how to create support during the early postnatal period through simple, yet profound changes in nutrition and lifestyle.



Who Open to all, this CPD is useful for pregnant women as well as perinatal yoga teachers and doulas who wish to expand their knowledge on the postnatal period. The knowledge and remedies shared in this CPD are nurturing and beneficial for all women in their postnatal period (regardless of whether they gave birth vaginally or by cesarean) and although this mini-CPD is not a training as an Ayurvedic therapist or practitioner, the information and tips shared will be very useful for teachers to use in their perinatal classes and workshops. 
CPD description In Ayurveda – the term used for the period after birth is Sutika Kala and the support for the Sutika (the postnatal woman) includes proper nutrition to kindle the digestive enzymes, to deeply nourish the bodily tissues and to create really good quality breast milk to nourish the baby. Secondly it includes a lifestyle which supports the pelvic organs to find their right placement again which helps a return to optimal physiology. 

Liese van Dam is an Ayurveda practitioner living in Holland, a teacher at the Ayurveda Academy in The Netherlands and Birthlight trained teacher with many years experience in Perinatal, Postnatal, Baby and Well Woman Yoga.
