Herbal Remedies for the Postpartum Period with Kearsley Schweller & Evan Cohen
Join Herbalists & Birth Workers Kearsley Schweller & Evan Cohen for a sliding scale in depth class on supporting the postpartum period with herbal medicines. Since time immemorial we have called upon plants to aid in the postpartum recovery process. We’ll share the flowering buds of our personal and professional use of herbal medicines & offer powerful tools to fortify your caregiving.
