Ayurveda Series – Post-natal care

with Ananga Sakhi devi dasi

Screen Shot 2014-06-06 at 19.04.51The term Ayurveda is derived from two Sanskrit words: ‘ayus’ meaning life and ‘vid’ meaning knowledge. The “science of life”, Ayurveda, is increasingly popular the world over, as people look for alternatives to allopathic care.

The Ayurvedic teachings have huge amounts of valuable insights into the process of childbirth and everything surrounding it, both pre- and post-birth. Since childbirth is one of the most significant events in a woman’s life, it is something that needs proper study and understanding.

Did you know that with just a few simple tips and hints, you can make a big difference to your child’s development; physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually?
