This offering is all about supporting, nourishing and honoring the new Mother/Parent for their incredible work of pregnancy, birth, postpartum healing and parenting! Postpartum care is an investment in life long health and wellbeing. Many ancient medicinal systems like Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) call the 40 days (or about 6 weeks) after birth "The Golden Window or Opportunity" as it is a time in a person's life that can set them up for health and vitality or oppositely, for mental/physical/hormonal/emotional challenges that can stretch far beyond the postpartum period. This is an IN-PERSON offering & includes: Continued ongoing support through the first 6-8 weeks postpartum. In the form of: -2x weekly Ayurvedic food preparation specific to postpartum healing. The menu is graduated to support slower digestion which is common postpartum. Foods prepared are super nourishing, warm and easily digested. (Menu provided). -2x weekly Abhyanga treatments. Abhyanga is a full body, warm sesame oiling and is used in the postpartum period "in place of" exercise while resting. It is deeply relaxing, helping the nervous system to settle after the intensity of pregnancy, birth and feeding and caring for an infant. -Additional postpartum care as needed (sitz bath set up, vaginal steaming set up, belly wrapping/binding, guided breath work and meditation).
