A New/old Way
As easy as all of this this seems, our current state of postpartum care does not come close to matching this gentle, nurturing beginning for American families. We have forgotten the traditional rituals and practical ways of caring for a newborn baby and a newborn mother.
Our current postpartum moms are anxious, alone and rushed along to get back to our pre-baby state. << statisitcs>>
This is a dismal way to build healthy, happy families. Change can start at home with YOU and can have a long lasting impact: on your self-confidence and joy as a mother, on your children's secure sense of attachment and healthy beginning, on your loving and respectful family relationships and ripple out to inspire your entire community. In Auyerveda there is a saying around this "sacred window" of pospartum: "42 (days) for 42 (years)". The meaningful investment of energy and resources investment into these healing and peaceful 42 days will last your family 42 years. It will create a solid foundation for a strong family bond and will cement health benefits, mental and physical for all members.
Culture around the world have celebrated the beginning of motherhood and the arrival of a new baby for centuries. Just as the onset of puberty, marriage and death
These are some of the core tenets of postpartum healing as traditional practiced around the world.
