Postpartum Doula Support
It's said that the 40 days post-delivery will set a mother up for the next 40 years of her life. Ayurveda places a lot of emphasis on this time, as the process of childbirth is highly Vata-provoking, it weakens the body, depletes the tissues and impairs digestion. If a mother is to give her newborn the love and care they deserve, then she herself needs to be strong, balanced and healthy. When a mother understands this, she can be willing to receive support at this time, allowing her to be in a space where her whole being can be rejuvenated.
The 40 days postpartum is a time for deep rest and rejuvenation as new mothers are as delicate as their newborns at this time. As an Ayurvedic Postpartum Doula, my role is to support mothers, so they can have the space to fall in love, bond with their new baby and have the energy to recover and rejuvenate well post-delivery. Adding my skills and knowledge as an Ayurvedic Practitioner, I am able to apply the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda into my supportive and loving offerings to mothers.
Working from the heart, I honour the needs of new families, plus the individual needs of mothers, as I am part of this sacred time and space. My aim is to create an environment in which mothers can rest, care for themselves and their newborns helping to ensure the transition into motherhood is a beautiful and nurturing experience for both mother and baby.
