Post Natal Care
The move from
pregnancy to motherhood is the most dramatic and, often shocking, change
in a woman's life. A time of joy, relief, happiness, wonderment, fear,
apprehension, and sleep deprivation all rolled into one.
In India mothers are seen as the basis of family life which then forms
the basis of society as a whole. Therefore if a mother is safe and protected,
family life is also safe and protected.
According to Ayurveda this is a critical and precious time in a woman's
life that can dictate her future health and well-being. It has, over
thousands of years, developed remedies to 'Mother the Mother' with nourishing
food, herbs and nurturing treatments, which aid in healing, rejuvenation
