Carrying a baby in the womb for the nine months of pregnancy imposes physical and mental demands on the mother. Even after childbirth, the mother has to channelize all her energy into nurturing and caring for her baby at times without getting much sleep. This might take a toll on the mother’s health. Ayurveda can support the mother in her journey from pregnancy to motherhood.

The first three months after delivery the mother’s body tries to come back to its normal state. The Uterus shrinks back to normal position & the ligaments, muscles, and tendons related to the Uterus start gaining back the lost power. Ayurveda becomes very important for reducing physical and mental stress after childbirth.
