Postnatal Care Treatment

About Us

The entire duration from the time you conceive to pregnancy, you are building tissues and your body is developing to prepare for the baby and to provide nourishment for the baby. After delivery, it is the depletion phase, where shedding of tissues created earlier for nourishing baby happens. At this stage, you will have low nutrients in the body and low absorption. You will also lose weight, hair, glow and overall health because of Vata increase. Post delivery, you might also experience aches and pains in the body. Hence it is important to bring back vigour, vitality, immunity, strength and nourishment so that health is restored and improved.

According to Ayurveda, the postnatal period (Sutika Kala) starts just after childbirth and continues up to the next six weeks. The mother is given active postnatal care (Sutika Paricharya) during this period to help her regain her health, strength and energy as well as to prepare her to take care of herself and the baby.

We do this by a carefully curated diet plan to improve quality and quantity of breast milk to nourish the baby, reduce colic and gas in the babies and to reduce stress and conditions like postpartum depression. Our postnatal care treatment is based on Ayurveda’s description of Sutika Parichaya that involves Ahara (food), Vihara (regimen) and Oushadha (medicines).
