“I’ve taken a LOT of classes over more than 20 years, in multiple fields of academic education and holistic modalities, both online and in person. The value for money and application to daily life that the Postpartum Caregiver Program brings to students is above and beyond anything I’ve ever experienced. I’m blown away by the content and the support available. Every doula, midwife, doctor or parent-to-be would benefit from the knowledge and practice shared here.

This experience has been a catalyst to get my mind and energy focused and have the practical skills and the emotional encouragement to keep going down this path of postpartum caregiving. There were so many moments that I felt divine inspiration flooding through me as I studied, participated in a lecture, reflected on the content, or shared what I was learning with clients. It was the perfect next step on my journey and wove together many seemingly disparate aspects of my learning. I feel prepared and kindled in bringing what I’ve learned into the world in a way that deeply supports the shifting paradigm of what it means to mother, to be nourished, and to live as a harmonious human being on this garden planet Earth.

Our Mission involves changing the paradigm of postpartum care in our modern culture to one that is more supportive on all levels for birth givers, babies and families.  For our students, we strive to mirror that mission in providing professional support that goes beyond taking in information to experience, support and direction as they develop their knowledge into a professional practice.

Conscious Postpartum Caregiver Program

 

Module One: Postpartum Care Foundations

Embark on a journey of providing care for new birth parents that embodies our Mother Principles: simplicity, flexibility, listening, compassion, intuition, grounding and non-judgement.  Combine your foundational Ayurvedic understanding of the specific constitutional needs of the sacred postpartum window, with nurturing practices that will support the natural imbalances often experienced after the birth of a baby.  We offer deep attention to the subtle channels which are particularly vulnerable at this time.  Learn to apply practical, powerful and deeply conscious postpartum care to newly birthed parents, babies and families.  Gain awareness and skills that will provide answers and direction to a modern void in postpartum care.  Explore the responsibility of learning and offering a different cultural perspective and of offering conscious postpartum care to ALL families.

Module Two: Foundations of Ayurveda

Discover foundational principles of Ayurveda through the lens of the Sacred Postpartum Window.  Learn how to observe nature’s elements as they manifest in specific ways during this pivotal time in a person’s life.  Explore a complete definition of health for a new birth parent and baby that includes the physical body, the subtle mental and emotional channels, and the processes of digestion and elimination on a physical and sensory level. Develop an understanding of nature’s elements at play within you.  Begin to witness yourself as your most powerful teacher of Ayurveda.  Recognize your individual constitution as a human, as a learner and as a caregiver.  Begin to rebalance yourself as you learn about inviting balance for new birth parents.  Build a foundation to support a postpartum caregiving practice that will serve not only new families, but yourself on a physical, subtle and professional level.

Module Three: Cooking for Postpartum and Postpartum Herbal Foods

Dive into an exploration of food as medicine.  Learn the factors and importance of proper digestion from an Ayurvedic perspective.  Find out how pregnancy and childbirth can affect the natural processes of digestion and elimination.  Learn how specific qualities in foods can correct common imbalances, and provide support for postnatal digestion, elimination, hydration, lactation and more!  Study specific situations postpartum that can challenge further an individual’s health and discover ways to support this time through nutrition.  Get busy in your own kitchen testing out delicious postpartum recipes ideal for new parents you will serve.  Examine the benefits of herbs and spices supportive for the postnatal constitution, and how simple combinations of herbal foods can powerfully support day to day and long term recovery.  Conscious attention to postpartum nutrition is feeding body, heart, mind and spirit! 

Module Four: Ayurvedic Touch for Postpartum

The healing and balancing sustained through human touch is transformational on physical and subtle levels.  Applying warm oil to the skin offers our largest organ the benefit of receiving nutrition directly.  Warm oil massage, or Abhyanga in Sanskrit, provides deep nourishment for new birth parents and babies.  Discover how a caregiver can support someone through touch within a safe scope of practice.  Whether you are practicing as a licensed massage therapist, or not, there are levels of care that can be offered to deeply support a parent and baby through practice and education.  Learn how postpartum massage should be different than at other times, and how Abhyanga is specifically practiced for the sacred window.  Learn Ayurvedic Infant Massage!  Experience the joys of learning to teach this beautiful practice to new parents and siblings.  Practice a traditional pudding soap recipe ideal for both parents and baby’s new skin.  Grow your toolbox for supporting new parents with the understanding and practice of Ayurvedic touch for postpartum!

Module Five: Growing Your Practice

Your caregiving practice is as unique as you!  Build a practice that not only supports new birth parents and families in your community (and beyond!), but that supports your life and how you want to live it.  We feel passionate about caring for the caregivers.  As professionals in this field, we understand the challenges it can present.  We guide our students to plan, implement and practice in ways that support sustainability and growth.  We recognize that all professionals in this field bring something unique.  We urge students to reflect on what aspects of this work are the most satisfying to them.  We believe in community and teams!  We support caregivers to work together in practice to support each other and families in stronger capacities.  We are committed to continuing our support to students as they graduate from our program.  We offer an Internship Program for new caregivers to receive guidance and support as they begin practicing in their local communities.  We are developing an Apprenticeship Program to offer in home training with an Ayurvedic Postpartum Caregiver in practice.  We will be bringing continuing education opportunities to caregivers and are always fostering community with professionals through social media and the Caregiver Directory.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the prerequisites?

There are no formal prerequisites for completing this Program.

Students do not need formal Ayurvedic training. We believe it is important that all students have access to the same perspective of Foundational Ayurvedic principles as delivered through the lens of rasayana care for the postpartum window. Even if a student has extensive training in Ayurveda, it is beneficial to take part in this specialized perspective.

Our program will cover a great deal of useful practice, and there is always insight to be gained by participating in further professional development such as specific training in lactation and breastfeeding.

How long does the program take to complete?

Our cohort program is 14 sessions in length over 16 weeks. Students have 90 days post program to complete their program requirements and receive their Certificate.  If a student needs special arrangements or extra time, we are always happy to accommodate committed learners.  Independent Study Students have 12 months to complete their program requirements.  Extensions are available as needed for a fee.

How much time will I need to spend each week on this program?

This is a 200 hour diploma program. Cohort students may spend between 3 and 15 hours per week including the live instruction class and optional office hour depending on their personal pace and level of involvement in the program. Some weeks will be more content heavy and time consuming. Students are encouraged to take a gentle pace that will support healthy learning. Students are given plenty of time to complete their requirements. We believe in nurturing our students and practicing the same support and compassion we teach them to bring to new mothers.  Not all of the content and coursework we offer to students is required.  

What can I do with this diploma professionally?

This is an ideal professional development program for Ayurvedic practitioners, yoga professionals, birth and postpartum doulas and any one in the healthcare or caregiving profession who works with new and expecting parents and babies. This program is also transformative for any expecting parent or family member wishing to learn powerful care strategies for the sacred postpartum window. Students will often take this course as a launching point into a new career path. Anyone may take this program!  While we are teaching students how to be Conscious Postpartum Caregivers, application of this knowledge can and hopefully will take many forms.  In order to broaden the scope of this work on a larger level and aid in social change for postpartum people, we hope to see students carry this knowledge forward as educators, organizers, legislators, health care professionals, media creators, artists, and beyond.  A Conscious Postpartum Caregiver is in the same category as a Postpartum Doula, but with an Ayurvedic specialty.  Similar to many independent doula training programs, we are not certified under a larger governing body.  We are an Organizational Member of the National Ayurvedic Medical Association (NAMA) and offer PACE credits for professional members.  We are accredited by IPHM (International Practitioners of Holistic Medicine).

What is Group Study?

Group Study is an option for local friends or colleagues to study together. Benefits of this option are having a natural support team to back one another up as they begin to practice, create a professional group practice together, or simply study together and have a local in person component to their online program.  A group of Conscious Postpartum Caregivers in a community will build greater local awareness about the sacred postpartum window. Members of a Group Study Circle do not need to study together in person.  It is simply an opportunity to grow awareness, support and sustainability for families and especially caregivers in communities.  All members of Group Study Circles will receive discounted tuition based on the number of students in the group.

What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda is the oldest continuously practiced medical science in the world based out of what is now India. Ayurveda literally means “life knowledge”. It takes into consideration the body, mind, senses, emotions along with proper digestion and elimination on a physical, sensory and mental level. Using the patterns and rhythms of nature, Ayurveda uses lifestyle routines, seasonal routines, dietary choices, herbal medicines and follows the direction of each individual’s unique constitution to address imbalances. Ayurveda is a sister science of Yoga and both are used simultaneously to attend to one’s physical and spiritual wellness.

What is a doula?

Doula means “with woman”. Today, it describes a caregiver who supports people before, during or after giving birth. Doulas can train specifically to attend births and/or to support an individual and new family after baby is born. Studies have proven that the presence of a doula during labor increases the chance of natural and uncomplicated childbirth. Studies have also shown that the support of a postpartum doula has many positive results on both birth parent and newborn physical, emotional and mental health.  An Ayurvedic Postpartum Caregiver is a Postpartum Doula who specializes in Ayurveda.  

What is the Sacred Window? Why is it important?

The Sacred Window refers to the first 42 days after someone gives birth. It is a transformational journey! Across the country, doctors and nurses agree that the 6 weeks postpartum are deficient in the current medical system for support and attention. Ayurveda recognizes the first 42 days postpartum as a “kayakalpa”, or “body time”, wherein the opportunity for intense healing is available as well as the vulnerability for serious depletion, which can affect a person’s health and wellness far into the future. As the founder of the original Sacred Window School, Ysha Oakes taught, “42 days for 42 years”! Paying close attention to health choices during this sacred 6 weeks will set a new parent up for giving their best and feeling one’s best far into the future.

-The special needs of the postpartum parent

-Nutritional support concepts and recipes for birther and newborn wellness

Will I be able to work with clients at the end of the program?

Yes! Once you complete the program you will be qualified to offer specialized conscious postpartum education and care based on the Ayurvedic perspective within our safe scope of practice to families in your community. Health care practitioners who complete this program will have a greatly enhanced perspective on the postpartum window and will have a broad range of practical skills with which to educate their patients. Expecting parents will have a greatly enhanced understanding of their needs during this time and be empowered to create the sacred window they want.  Students who wish to receive continued guidance as they begin to practice professionally are encouraged to take part in our Internship Circle to receive a further mentoring.  This program supports new caregivers with regular contact and individual support from our Mentoring Team while they work with clients in their own communities and develop their professional practices.

What is the format of the program?

Our program can be fully completed in the comfort of your own home. Students will have weekly required reading assignments prior to their 2 hour live instruction course via web conferencing each Monday evening from 8pm – 10pm Eastern Time (UTC -4/5). Post live instruction course, students will be given a combination of practicum assignments, self quiz, small breakout study circle groups and discussion prompts to contribute to dialogue on the Student Forum. Each Module takes from 1-4 weeks, and the entire program spans 14 weeks. Each Module culminates with a Final Project. Students are given access to a comprehensive Student Website which is a hub for their entire program.

What are the requirements for receiving my Diploma?
  1. Attend live or view recordings of all 14 class lectures.  Attendance is recorded for both the live class and post lecture review.
  2. Ideally one Student Forum post each week and one comment to another’s post.
  3. Post lecture quiz (if applicable)for each week of class.
  4. Completion of Required Reading at the pace that supports the individual’s learning needs. This may span beyond the program and will not be documented by instructors.
  5. Completion and Submission of all Final Projects.

 

Note: We offer students a practicum assignment, diverse Forum Discussion Prompts, Journal Reflections, Breakout Study Circles and Recommended Reading assignments in addition to the 5 Required activities above for each week of study. The purpose is to offer students as many ways to integrate the knowledge that will serve the student best. We urge students to become familiar with the way in which they learn, and to pace themselves based on that knowledge.

Not all we offer you is required. Students may take up to 30 days after the program ends to complete all requirements and receive their diploma.  Should a student need extra time, we will gladly make arrangements on an individual basis.

How long will I have access to the Student Website and course materials after the program?

Students will have access to most program materials indefinitely.  We encourage students to download the live class recordings in order to view them anytime, as individual cohort recordings will not remain available after 90 days post program.  Students are welcome to download and/or print any and all course materials that accompany each Module of the program.  We offer for sale a custom USB with downloaded lectures from your cohort which you may purchase after your course ends.  Independent Study Students have forever access to the Independent Study Student Website.  

Will I be certified after this program? What kind of credentials will I have?

Students who complete this program are able to offer service to mothers and families in the same way that a postpartum doula can.  There are many postpartum doula trainings available, some them are nationally or internationally “certified” (DONA, CAPPA, etc.) and many of them are independent, having their own requirements and credentials, as are we.  We are an Organizational Member of the National Ayurvedic Medical Association (NAMA) and are able to offer PACE credits to Professional Members.  We are accredited through IPHM (International Practitioners of Holistic Medicine).

“When I began practicing, I felt like I was guessing most of the time!  I didn’t have a go to person who knew about the type of care I was offering, or who had experiences they could share about their own conscious postpartum care practice.  I know it is supposed to be a little scary starting something new, but I deeply wished I had a support network familiar with Ayurveda in postpartum caregiving.  It would have made such a difference.”
