Traditional Ayurvedic Postpartum care for mothers
What is an Ayurvedic Doula?
Ayurveda is a science for your mind, body and spirit. Ayurveda treats the individual with these 3 dimensions, placing emphasis on the prevention of diseases with the help of diet, daily routines and seasonal routines.
Ayurveda is the art of a good life and gentle healing. Originating in the Indian subcontinent, Ayurveda is a whole body health system focusing on rejuvenation and prevention with a unique dietary approach and daily routines based on the individual’s energy and body type make up or “Dosha”.
Everything in nature, including us, is made up of the same building blocks- proto-elements- air, fire, water, earth and space/ether. From the combination of these elements, 3 “Doshas” Vata, Pitta and Kapha are originated. Every person has a unique constitution that depends upon the right balance of the three doshas. Too much or too little of these may disturb the natural equilibrium of an organism and lead to diseases. Add strong elements to weak elements and homeostasis can be restored!
The goal of Ayurvedic Postpartum Care is to establish daily rituals and routines that can affect the new mother’s physical and emotional health, including proper nutrition and massage.

What is Ayurvedic Massage?
This gentle, repetitive, warm, oily, nourishing sesame oil application supports deep mind body integration, rest and rejuvenation as it gently presses the tissues which have so many transitions and are at this time fragile, depleted and exhausted. It facilitates movement of fluids and wastes through their proper channels at a time when exercise is not indicated.
Gentle, extra focus on areas under extra workload includes hips, shoulders, neck, breasts, foot and hand reflex points, lower back, abdomen and emotional meridan points. Enough repetition of strokes and warmth supports lymph, circulation, muscles, organs, and other tissues with their work.
Oil Massage Benefits
Expectations For the 2 day AyurMellow Treatment ~ 4 hours each day
First hour of my visit is checking in on mama and baby. Talking about the birth, feeding the baby and addressing questions related to post-birth care and the baby.
What to expect at an Ayurvedic Postpartum session
I am coming to care for you and the baby and to be a guide. I will help you process the birth, what new motherhood is like and discuss the unknown. You don’t have to worry about whether the baby is asleep, awake or crying. Don’t worry if baby needs Mama or vice versa!
Here’s the flow
Baby should be close by during the massage, like in the next room. Baby tends to be very reassured even in the next room, feeling mom relaxing deeply. Moms don’t want to be far from their baby. This treatment also has positions available for baby to feed or just be close to mama on the table.

Herbs taken in Tea form are not only nutritious and hydrating but the fastest means for these herbs to get into the channels of the body.
Ghee is abundant in good fats, a Clarifyied butter, when it’s made the milk solids are removed, so most people who are intolerant to lactose or casein can tolerate ghee.
Ghee absorbs immediately, quickly soothing the affected area and can be put directly on skin.
Great for abdominal colic in moms and babies and digestion.
Our ghees can be customized with digestive herbs as well!

About the Stones
Lapis is a lucky stone, according to ancient Ayurvedic texts, moms would wear Lapis stones during delivery to protect themselves and give them strength of mind to rise to the challenge.
You will have a clear mind, Lapis will aid the wearer in decision-making. You will have the confidence and courage to go after what you want and have hope that everything will work out, no matter how hard it is going through it. For natural empaths, Lapis will shield you from taking on emotions and energies that are not yours.
Citrine is protective of the wearer, warding off any emotional threats and negative energies. The healing stone, it alleviates fatigue, battles fear, boosts self- confidence and encourages you to live a little and go with the flow. When lacking physical energy, Citrine gives a boost to push through.
