Postpartum Care according to ancient ayurvedic principles

The birth of a baby is one of the most beautiful events in the life of a woman. Though, the transition from carrying to caring for a baby can be very challenging for the mother’s health; physically and emotionally. To avoid feeling exhausted and overwhelmed Ayurveda for Mother and Baby offers herbalized oil massages, dietary guidelines, and herbal preparations to actively restore the mother’s natural balance, strength and stamina.

The treatments that I offer are based on the ancient ayurvedic knowledge, the traditional medicine of India. Ayurveda calls the first 6 weeks following delivery “Kaya Kalpa”. A period in which new mothers are being nourished and taken care of with special massages, diet and plenty of rest. One of the key principles of Ayurveda for Mother and Baby is that when you mother the mother, she can take better care of her newborn and the family.

Since for most people it is not feasible to have 6 weeks of Mother Baby Care, I offer tailored treatments, given in the comfort and privacy of the home at a time convenient for the family. Each day includes:

  • Rejuvenating ayurvedic massage with herbalized oils
  • Bed rest
  • Warmth treatment
  • Herbal supplements to support digestion and breastfeeding (per weekly treatment)
  • Dietary advices and advices for daily routine

Hands on instruction in baby massage and exercises is part of Ayurveda for Mother and Baby, but can also be learned separately.

Woman who have participated in the programme comment that they feel more relaxed and happy, have been able to recover more quickly from the fatigue of pregnancy and delivery, feel more stable, and that the babies have less wind and collic, and sleep better.
