AyurCare Postpartum –

A single AyurCare visit cost is $295


First 7 Days – 6 Weekspp-ayur-care-feb-16-1

This is a suggestion of treatments… Seven days (to begin soon after delivery) – Start weekly segments once you are home from birth facility. Each home visit includes: abhyanga with creative healing to decongest the body for mama, belly wrap for mama, abhyanga for bebe AND simple guidelines and routines for diet, rest and activity tailored to you (if wanted) specifically for this time.

First week home – each day of the week (7 days consecutive) – $1750

~ for section deliveries, it is best to wait 10 days to 2 weeks or till stitches and scar are feeling good

Following five weeks – two to three visits each – $250/visit

~ for best results, you’ll want to wrap each day. I’m willing to teach someone in the house to do this on the days I’m not there.

Of course, you can have as many visits as you want and schedule permits. Each home visit is $250. I allow 1 1/2 hours in my schedule to be at your home.

Here are a few examples of how AyurCare is scheduled:
  • Rita – 3 times a week for 3 weeks
  • Kim – 7 consecutive days once home from hospital, then 3 times a week for 5 weeks
  • Dhanya – 7 consecutive days once home from hospital
  • Toni – once a week for 7 weeks
  • OR create your own combo

Vettu Vellum – $350IMG_9870

OTHER OFFERINGS ~

Wrap / Binding for Mama – $200

Using olive oil as a carrier oil infused with a blend of essential oils to promote postpartum healing & provide lactation support for a belly / breast massage. The addition of creative healing is used to move congestion out of the body. A 100% cotton unbleached muslin fabric is used to wrap the torso followed by an abdominal binder to hold mama tight.

Binding is beneficial to help the body to move the excess air out, help the abdominal organs to settle back into place, encourage the core muscles to engage, create help for having good posture which aids in promoting lactation and ease of breastfeeding.

In addition to the work given to mama, your sweet little person receives and abhyanga as well!

Have someone special around to learn a few of the moves and how to help you with repeating the binding each day – for as many days as you wish. I will leave the wrap / binding materials and oil for both you and bebe.
