As a holistic coach, psychologist, mindfulness, meditation & yoga instructor, & Ayurvedic doula I offer personalized paths to growth & healing.
In today’s episode, I speak with Ameya Duprey (@ShaktiCare), board certified Ayurvedic practitioner, massage therapist and Ayurvedic postpartum doula about 5 key pillars of Ayurvedic wisdom that can guide postpartum care that truly nurtures the birthing parent in the immediate aftermath of birth and for many years beyond.
Ayurveda is a rich and complex holistic preventative medicine system originating in India over 5,000 years ago. Ayurveda can promote recalibration in times of stress, transition, and imbalance, and there are specific recommendations and healing modalities that can be particularly beneficial in the postpartum period, regardless of how the birth unfolded and the birth parent’s unique mental and physical constitution prior to pregnancy. Ayurvedic postpartum care is well beyond the scope of one episode, so we hone in on some concrete takeaways you can share with others and implement in your own life.
