    I am so grateful that Keli put this course together! There is so much information that we’ve lost over the centuries that she provides in an easily digestible format with practical questions to ensure we’ve absorbed the content accurately. As a doula, I am excited to begin offering this option to my clients!

  21. Christiannah Williams-Ehrman

    By far one of my most favorite courses…and I’m taking a lot of them! Kelli is amazing and the guests are so knowledgeable in their respective fields. I recommend this for birth-workers and for people planning on getting pregnant.

    This course is helpful to differentiate how to steam clients who are not pregnant and those who are after 37 weeks. I am so glad you added the interview with Monika in this course. Her experience in Czech Republic is so important! I enjoyed the information.

  28. Tineke

    Another great course with fantastic and super inspiring interviews. So empowering for mothers-to-be and her caregivers❤️❤️

  29. Tesereta

    I’m on call for 3 births. They’ve all expressed a desire to not be induced & wanting to go into labor naturally. This course was so informative! It was so nice to know that there are more options to choose from when it comes to labor and birth.

    Steaming for Labor Prep

    I’m a birth doula, and I could not wait to take this course. If only all birthing women knew they could use something as simple as steam for labor prep. It’s SO easy, feels wonderful, helps labor progress smoothly and prevents injuries. It should be standard practice…or at least a standard option! It blows my mind that something so simple has been so erased from popular culture. Thank you, Keli, for passing on this knowledge and creating a great course!

  35. Cynthia Rena (verified owner)

    Love this course!

    I learned so much about labor preparation and what a woman needs to prepare her body for labor and delivery. It was totally fascinating. Another wonderful course!

  36. Erika (verified owner)

    Steaming for Labor Prep is Awesome

    I wish I had all this information when I was pregnant with my oldest almost 7 years ago! Had I not gone through the experience with him, I would have never found Steamy Chick. Thankful to now this info now and share it with my community.

  37. Naima Bond (verified owner)

    Labor Prep

    First I have to start with I am a doula. I was wondering what i would learn with this class. Well, I am floored! The information was very valuable and practical. I am so excited to start with a client!

  38. Marisa Shearer (verified owner)

    Vaginal Steaming for Labout Preparation

    A fantastic and informative course. I learnt things in this course that I know would have helped me with my two deliveries. It helped me make sense of the parts of my deliveries that had been challenging and understand things that would have made such a huge difference. I’m so excited to know this knowledge now so that I can pass it on to other women so that they can go on to have empowered births.

  39. Jocey R (verified owner)

    So much knowledge

    This was a great course! I loved the interviews with the other practitioners and getting their stories; so inspiring. I also love that this is another tool I can offer my clients once they are ready for birth. High recommend!

    Steaming for Labor Prep

    I AM OBSESSED with this entire program but the information for Labor Prep is awesome and to the point, very easy to understand but you also feel challenged in what you are learning. I also love how Keli has each semester laid out so you can go ahead when you feel like you can or want too and do the classes as you desire. I work with SO many Pregnant Mamas and Postpartum Recovery clients and these classes have boosted my confidence in facilitating even more!


  41. Kestrel Gates (verified owner)


    Steaming for labor preparation makes so much sense and Keli does an excellent job of taking a holistic approach that puts steaming within a larger framework. The interviews are full of information and are inspiring. Steaming during labor will become a common practice like having a birth tub. Let’s make it happen!

  42. Healing Humxn (verified owner)


    This course helped me be able to guide a dear friend through steaming for labor prep so she wouldn’t need to rely on medical induction. And it WORKED. I learned so much, thank you!

  43. Mary Brown (verified owner)

    Labor Prep for myself

    This was an excellent course! I signed up to prepare for my own labor and do believe the steaming plan aided in a quick delivery for a first time mom, over age 40. Delivered exactly on due date

  44. Melissa Hunter (verified owner)

    Super useful

    Lots of really great info here on how to support labor readiness and reduce birth injuries.

    Prepare the body for labor

    I took this course at the end of pregnancy and was able to find first hand the benefits of steaming for labor preparation. I had a posterior positioned baby “sunny side up” but was able to birth him naturally without any tearing (9.9lb baby). I believe that’s my testimony to the power of 3 weeks steaming before labor. It helped the vaginal tissues do their job and bounce back. I’m really hoping to share this with so many women.

    Empowered Birthing!

    Letting women reclaim the experience of birth by taking back control over their bodies and birth. This knowledge is invaluable!

  47. Femke Lemberg (verified owner)

    Steaming for Labor Prep

    This course contains revolutionary information.
    Giving women back the tools to progress into labor with natural and effective methods.
    To think that so many women can be supported in these ways before and during birth is next level empowerment for all involved.
    From my perspective i can see this resulting in the
    prevention of unnecessary medical interference, giving women and their baby’s back their birth right & therefore reducing the chances of birth trauma.

    I was my own Practice Client, it was fantabulous!

    I got to be my own Practice Client for this course because I happened to be pregnant and near due when I took this course. I learned so much on how steaming can change the conversation in labor rooms. Where I’m from the nurses use an enema made out of soap and warm water as a “natural” way to induce labor. I want to invite them to try vaginal Steaming instead. It’s so much more relaxing, comfortable, and uplifting. I was this close to getting a C-section. But the steam opened up my cervix to 8cm in very little time.

    This needs more exposure in hospital labor rooms and maternity wards.

    Thank you Keli Garza for this great work you put together for us!

    Labor Prep Steaming

    Steaming for labor prep is one of my all time favorite things to use steaming for. Having this is as a tool is a game changer if you are a doula, birthkeeper, or midwife. It makes such a huge difference in the labor and birth, that I could even consider going back to doula work after taking this class! Would like to have a bit more teaching in this class on the contraindications of labor prep steaming, but overall very cool class!
