Ayurveda and Postnatal care
After childbirth, the mother is filled with cold qualities, after the loss of body fluids and energy. It is the time of a predominance of Vata dosha in the body. Vata is one of the three energies of the body according to Ayurveda, the proportion and balance of which is important for the wellbeing of the individual. An increase in Vata should be taken care of through gentle Ayurvedic treatment and massage.
