This class is the sequel to the previously offered Pregnancy, Birth and Post-Partum with Classical Chinese Medicine class. This class will focus on herbal case studies to help you integrate the material form the original online course.
Genevieve will review the physiology and pathology of pregnancy in the introductory part. She proposes to explore over 30 case studies illustrating the treatment of pregnant, parturient and post-partum women with formulae from the Shang Han Lun, Jin Gui Yao Lue, and Bei Ji Qian Jin Yao Fang. She will amply discuss theory, treatment principles, and herbal safety for each case study. Through these case studies will emerge a picture of where and how the mother’s life cycle intersects with the baby’s development, as well as the importance of female Blood and how to nurture mother and baby by nourishing this life-giving liquid. The best fetal-maternal care comes out of the deep understanding of this relationship, as well as a solid grasp of herbal methods and appropriate and safe formulation.
The original course is not required before taking this case study course but is recommended.
