What is an Ayurdoula?
An Ayurvedic doula (or Ayurdoula for short) is someone who provides doula support but also focuses more on the health of the mother-to-be or new mother. She assists more with the preparation of therapeutic foods, herbs and gives nurturing treatments and massages which treat the mother's body, mind and spirit.
It is particularly beneficial to have an Ayurdoula postnatally to provide physical and emotional rejuvenation after birth. Healthy nourishing meals are cooked for you and massages and treatments given.
