Ayurvedic tradition holds the 42 days after a woman gives birth as a vitally important window to rebuild strength and regain radiance. This window is one of three times in her life when the opportunity to create enhanced vitality is fertile, but it is also one in which lasting damage can be done to a woman’s health now and far into the future if she does not treat herself gently and observe the importance of healing during this sensitive time. The Mother Baby Postpartum program offers comprehensive care including health consultation, in home Ayurvedic oil massage, herbal support, and Ayurvedic postpartum cooking. There is no better or more appropriate time to offer yourself this kind of care.
