It was a thorough and very interesting course on pregnancy, and it was great to study works of great Chinese Medicine gynecologists and the classics. Thank you Sharon Weizenbaum
This 19-hour course takes the student through the period of time through conception to labor and postpartum from a Chinese herbal perspective. The basics of physiology for women during these times are covered as well as advanced, clinically proven methods to treat a wide variety of common issues that arise.
There is a focus on safety and the experience of our predecessors. Beyond the basics of labor and postpartum, we also cover slow labor, expired fetus failing to descend, postpartum depression, body pain, constipation, nursing difficulty and more.Each presentation gives detailed instruction on diagnosis and treatment and includes well-organized handouts that will be a clinical reference for years to come.
The handouts include significant additional resources that are not included in the presentations including translations of commentary and clinical experience from a range of doctors. Sharon has taken the experience of these doctors and integrated this into her own practice with women and shares her own clinical insight and cases.
"I have long enjoyed the high quality of information and fascinating snippets from Sharon Weisenbaum's excellent blog and am thrilled to see that she has now produced a course on Pregnancy and Labour. Having had a sneak preview of the introduction and the list of topics, I am looking forward to seeing the rest of what looks to be a thorough, well thought out and beautifully presented course." - Jane Lyttleton, Author of The Treatment of Infertility with Chinese Medicine
