What is this eBook about?

Traditional Midwifery in Thailand is a fascinating domain that integrates a vast range of Thai Healing Arts modalities.

The Thai Folk Healer or Thai Midwife needs to be extremely versatile and well-trained in a variety of treatments, such as Pregnancy and Postpartum Thai Massage, Herbal Ball Compress Massage, Herbal Baths and Herbal Steaming treatments, Abdominal Binding, Spiritual Practices, and Antenatal and Postnatal Dietary Regimes, to name some fields.

Moreover, the therapist needs to accompany a woman and her baby going through various phases: from pregnancy to labor, and from delivery to postpartum period.

In fact, we have very much enjoyed doing research and writing this book, and we think we have created a unique and in-depth overview thoroughly covering Traditional Thai Mother & Child Care concepts and modalities.

This book is not a training course or workshop but aims at providing you with a comprehensive understanding of the topic presented.
