Introducing Yoni Steaming at Carolina Birth and Wellness

We are excited to launch a new service: Yoni Steaming, or more commonly, Vaginal Steaming!

So that probably took you aback…and you asked yourself, “you want me to steam what and why would I do that?!” Trust us, it is amazing. 

So What Exactly Is it?

Our in-home yoni steam sessions are relaxing, rejuvenating and therapeutic for women in all stages of life. We have a special steaming stool that you will sit on, while under you, we place a burner with a pot of water with herbs specifically for your needs. Based on your health history, you will either steam for 15 minutes or 30 minutes. The steam is not intended to be too hot, but warm and relaxing. 

Why Yoni

We chose to call our steam session yoni for several reasons, but the primary being we loved the symbolism behind the word. Vagina by definition is a sheath to put something in. And while yes, sometimes that does happen, sometimes it doesn’t. Furthermore, the vagina is the canal between the cervix and the other vulva. For some, the vagina may not receive any steam. The vulva definitely will be steamed during the process, but the vagina, not always depending on your anatomy. 

Lastly, the word Yoni is just a beautiful word. Yoni by definition means “the vulva, especially as a symbol of divine procreative energy conventionally represented by a circular stone.” And what a perfect way to describe the female gentile area, “a divine procreative energy”. As doulas and advocates for maternal health, we are all about women finding their inner energy, and if that energy is divine, even better!

Why Steam


We got interest in Yoni steaming for different reasons, but all routed in the same basic foundation: we wanted to be more proactive about our menstrual cycles and our bodies in general. By steaming, we are able to take 30 minutes to connect with our divine energy, and get a bit of self-care in the busyness of life! 

Who Should Steam

Anyone and everyone! Over the next few days, we will be highlighting the benefits of steaming, when to steam, when not to steam, and what herb selection you should use. So stay tuned to learn more. But in short, almost everyone can find some benefit to steaming. We have a lengthy intake to learn about your needs and concerns to ensure that we pick out the best steam setup for you, but the benefits can be felt by anyone looking to relax and rejuvenate their mind and body. 

We hope you try it out!
