pp-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.

Tradition calls for 6 Weeks…

First week home OR as soon as you are ready, we meet for as many consecutive days as possible. Most often that means 4 – 7 visits for our first week together.

Following five weeks we meet 2-4 times a week until we complete 6 weeks together. 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.

I allow 1 1/2 hours in my schedule to be at your home.

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

EVEN though tradition calls for 6 weeks, feel free to create your own protocol. A few example of past clients are listed below.

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 – $450IMG_9870

A traditional ceremony cleansing and caring for mother once home from the hospital: begins with setting of intentions and prayer. Then the following steps below are completed with care. I would ask that someone come to assist in the service – a mother, sister, best friend. Additionally, the baby is not in the room – maybe father is caring for baby. I will bring along an additional therapist to assist me and/or a postpartum doula to care for baby for an additional fee.

OTHER OFFERINGS ~

Wrap / Binding for Mama – $225

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.
