Ayurvedic Postpartum Care

MOTHER CENTERED CARE FOR YOUR SACRED WINDOW

Mothering the Mother

 

Ancestors in all corners of the world have tended to the moments following birth with great care and reverence. Within each cultural tradition, there is a common thread of deep nurturing, warmth, honor, and support given to the new mother.  The wisdom held within these customs is rooted in the understanding that a healthy mother is required for a healthy baby, and ultimately, a healthy Earth. 

According to Ayurveda, the 42 days after birth is a sacred window in time when the mother's tissues are quite delicate and supple. This sets the stage for a powerful transformation. When cared for properly, the mother can have a deeply healing experience - potentially transforming her body to be healthier than it was before pregnancy

Sacred mother care begins during pregnancy. 

To help ease your transition into motherhood and prepare for your sacred postpartum window, all packages include a 60-minute prenatal consultation and free juicy resources

In your prenatal consultation we will:

  • Discuss the basics of life after birth and how we can prepare for tending to the postpartum mother.

  • Assess mother's prenatal (and general) health, discuss preferred foods, and develop a plan for establishing balance during her sacred window.

  • Explore how to best prepare your space for creating nourishing postpartum meals.

  • Learn how to give yourself a loving oil massage (abhyanga).  You'll have the opportunity to learn infant abhyanga once baby arrives.

As my gift to you, you'll receive the following resources free of charge

  • ​Mother's Manual - An interactive guide with thoughtful reflections and strategies to help you successfully prepare for life after baby.  ​

  • Nourishing Mama - My original e-book, Nourishing Mama: First Foods for Your Sacred Window, offers Ayurvedic perspectives on the postpartum period, satisfying meal plans, and delicious recipes. 

  • Resources for Pregnancy and Beyond - A resource guide to help you begin building your village of support. 

  • New Mama Affirmations - An audio file of comforting affirmations for new mothers to uplift your spirits when it all feels like too much. Gentle reminders that you're doing just fine.

Virtual Postpartum Care 

As your virtual postpartum doula, I provide compassionate, heart-centered guidance through your sacred window and parental rite of passage. Becoming a parent can be overwhelming and isolating - especially during a pandemic. Knowing there is someone to answer your questions and offer consolation in the times you need it most, can provide peace of mind and reassurance that you've got this. Virtual care is a wonderful option for families outside of Northern Colorado - or those who have loved ones providing physical support, but could use additional emotional and educational support. 

All services are included but may rotate based on the needs of the mother and family.
