Courses / The Postpartum
What is Net of Knowledge?


This two-part course is designed to develop an understanding of Yangsheng in the postpartum, the art of self-cultivation and taking the opportunity for change inherent in this life transition.

Each module will be one hour long and will be illustrated with mothers’ stories and footage from interviews with mothers. As this is intended for CM practitioners in a western setting with patients from many different cultural backgrounds, there will be an emphasis on understanding various different cultural practices in postpartum care from a Chinese medical viewpoint. There will be a discussion of how to help manage and support mothers’ postpartum in a modern clinical setting.

Renewals normally come back to us after 30 days. If your accreditation body is not listed under the "Approved" section, you may find it under the "Pending" section.
