PRENATAL AND POSTPARTUM CARE

by Kottakkal Support June 12, 2020

Ayurvedic Prenatal and Postpartum Care
Ayurveda is becoming very popular for both prenatal and postpartum care. Many women are seeking out Ayurveda to support their journey from pregnancy to motherhood. Ayurveda offers a well-developed health plan for both prenatal and postpartum care known as Garbhini Paricharya.
 Ayurveda offers specific recommendations from preconception to postpartum. Every step of the way there are foods and lifestyle recommendations to follow. The goal is for both mother and baby to experience the best health possible.   
 During labor and delivery, a mother’s body undergoes great exhaustion and emotional vulnerability. The key to rejuvenation begins from the very first day. Mom and baby need to feel nourished, safe, and able to rest in a quiet space where they can bond. This ensures the healthiest outcome for both mother and baby. 
 Ayurveda recommends specific products to ensure the healthiest outcome for both mother and baby.
