According to Ayurveda, proper self-care will determine the next 40 years of moms life and sets the stage for a lifetime of health and well-being. Postpartum Abhyanga is preformed with specific medicated oils that are made with herbs that help strengthen the muscles and pacify vata dosha. Postnatal Abhyanga is very different and is specifically designed to expel vata from the body, it helps the body recuperate faster from childbirth, relieves tiredness from lack of sleep, mental fatigue, body pain and potential breastfeeding difficulties. Traditional belly binding is also done to help expel vata from abdominal cavity and aids uterus shrink back to its normal size which helps the rest of the organs settle back into place. Herbs can be given in a tea form to help increase breast milk production when needed. We also recommend herbs to help ignite digestive fire which can become diminished by pregnancy and finally we teach moms how to give their babies Abhyanga massage. This not only helps mom and baby bond but is incredibly beneficial to increase baby’s intellect and mental function, encourages healthy growth, straightens bones and limbs, reduces colic and strengthens digestion.
