postpartum care

The first 42 days after giving birth is a beautifully sacred time of huge transition and change for mama (and baby, and family). In Ayurveda, this special time is called Kayakalpa, the Sacred Window.

Birthing a soul into the world opens mama to a profound level of subtlety. She may be very delicate physically, emotionally, mentally, and energetically. During this time, her energy is best focused on healing, feeding and bonding with baby, and for this, mama needs to be well rested and well nourished. If she is open to receiving support, this Sacred Window can be a blissful and magnificent time of transformation.

These postpartum packages are designed to nurture mamas with healing food and balancing herbs, nourishing touch, love, gentleness, sweetness, and steady support.
