Giving birth to a child is something special, unique and extraordinary for all woman. It is not only a physical activity but it is a mental transformation from a young woman to a loving mother. During the pregnancy period, great care is given from time to time for resulting in a healthy delivery of the baby but what about after the pregnancy period?.
This is where both the mother and child need extra care so that they become healthier and happy. Just like prenatal care, postnatal therapy is also important because, without it, it will result in negative consequences. In Ayurveda, postnatal treatments are specified and are given to the mother and the baby.
How postnatal therapy is important in Ayurveda
According to Ayurveda, the human body is a combination of the three doshas or elements which are Vata, Pitta & Kapha. Among these three, Vata dosha is responsible for several processes that include metabolic functions and movement throughout the body and expulsion. Childbirth is one such process that involves a great deal of movement. As the Vata dosha constitutes of air & space, when childbirth occurs, a void will be left in the body which is also governed by Vata. Therefore, it results in a Vata imbalance.
As the Vata dosha is imbalanced, it affects the health and well being of the mother and the child. The mother may feel out of place, experience dryness, fatigue, depression, and taking care of the child by your self between this is not a good idea. This is where ayurvedic postnatal treatments come to balance the dosha symptoms and thereby optimize healing. If you are not sure about the dosha that governs your body, then visit an ayurvedic medical clinic like Ayurlife where we will help you with that.
Tips to follow
If you are a pregnant lady or due to giving birth, then it is worth knowing these postnatal physiotherapy tips below that will help you and your loved one’s to give proper care once you have delivered your baby and are at your home. However, we recommend you to consult our clinic and get the best treatments for both you and the baby.
Get sufficient rest
First things first. Once you have given birth, you will be completely drained both physically and emotionally. The first thing you should do is get complete rest. Normally, it is advised by doctors that the mother and the child must get rest for 40 days or six weeks. Also, during this time, limit doing tasks such as household chores and more importantly, limit the visitors. This is to prevent any chances of infection as both you and the baby are vulnerable and at the weakest.
Say no to raw food items & cold meals
When your family member offers you these items, just say no because not only they are very difficult to digest but it won’t help balance Vata. Even when drinking water, it must be either warm or at room temperature. Doing this will help eliminate Vata imbalance problems such as constipation. Also, when drinking warm water, it doesn’t force your body to work hard
Adapt to a healthier diet
After all, you have given birth, it has made you weak and the first thing to do is to become healthy. For that, switching to a healthier diet for at least a month after the delivery will help you to recover soon. Consuming home-cooked meals and food items such as oil and ghee leads to a good recovery. As these items consist of good quality fats, it helps to balance your hormones and Vata dosha.
Form an emotional bond
Well, this is pretty much self-explanatory. Now that you have become a mother, you need to spend time with your baby whenever you can. The bond you form with your baby today lasts for a lifetime. Even if you get a little time, you should cuddle and caress your baby. Also, you should let no one interfere with these moments under any circumstances unless you are not feeling well.
