If you have also recently had or are about to deliver, then know how with the help of Ayurveda, you can make your recovery period easier.
Ayurveda help after delivery
Every woman needs rest and care for at least 42 days after delivery. At this time the Vata dosha in the body has to be pacified.
A lot of energy, fluids and blood has been spent after delivery. This is the reason why Ayurveda advises new mothers to include herbs and energizing massage in their diet.
During these 42 days, the body gets a lot of strength and relaxation through diet, oil massage and herbs. This pacifies the vata dosha and nourishes the body.

New mothers are advised to eat a pure balanced diet. Sattvic food is easily digested which helps in recovery. Sattvic diet means food with sattva quality.
This includes seasonal fruits, seeds, dry fruits, milk products, pulses, ripe vegetables and whole grains.
According to Ayurveda, new mothers have to take nourishment from good fats and this is considered to be sattvik. It brings peace and balance to the mind and also helps in falling asleep.
After delivery, the digestive system of women becomes weak, so at this time Ayurveda recommends eating things that cure Vata. Anxiety, constipation, indigestion, gas and lack of sleep can occur due to imbalance of Vata. These symptoms are also cured by balancing Vata. At this time you should drink rice, garlic, ghee, milk and vegetable soup.
