Guiding You And Your Family For A Healthy, Strong and Confident Few Years
Why is it important to have postpartum support?
A mother I was working with in postpartum said to me,
"You see, this is why I hate going to the check-ups! I am SO late,
I am stressed, and now I am worried my baby is going to get sick
from entering the hospital."
Often, in Western-American culture, there is a lot of focus on the birth,
and then families are abandoned afterward. Many people believe
mothers should, "get their body back," "jump back into work,"
and have everything back to "normal."
After birth, a mother's body has opened in ways both seen and
unseen and there is need for integration, rest, support, and connection
with baby. With the right set up, a mother is more able to return
to work with focus, balance her body, and re-align herself with life and
In many traditions all over the world, postpartum support is standard.
It is unthinkable to leave a mother alone after birth in many cultures.
A Postpartum Doula encourages the sacred transition so a mother can be FULLY present with baby and heal. When a baby is first born, the mother and baby are not separated.
The health of the mother is a reflection of the baby and vise versa. So, if a mama is fully supported then she is more likely to have a healthy baby, and be more present with the baby's needs.
Postpartum health is not just looking at the baby or mother, but the health of both mother, baby, and whole family coming together. With the support of a doula, partners and other family members can have more time to bond with the new baby instead of stressing about taking care of chores, cooking, etc.
What Do We offer as a Postpartum Ayurdoula?
A Postpartum Ayurvedic Doula or Ayurdoulas: is someone trained in Ayurveda practices postpartum to help heal the body after birth. Ayurveda is a life science from India, which has been around for thousands of years and offers a wealth of knowledge for families after birth. Specifically, many women have body pain, constipation, gas, sleep loss, hormone fluctuation, digestion problems, and can go to extreme postpartum depression. This is common, but preventable with the tools through Ayurveda! I support parents with a 6-week regimen after birth to help with balancing the hormones, deep connection with baby, digestion, physical strength, milk supply and more!

I am extremely grateful that I found Amber for my ayurvedic postpartum care. The abhyanga oil massages and her delicious food were so healing to me and as a first-time mother I really needed all the healing and help to balance out my crazy emotions and pp depression. I would highly recommend her to all mothers to get postpartum care from Amber. She is the best! Her calming and grounding presence really played a role in me feeling better and getting back to feeling normal again! I will definitely hire her again if there will be another baby coming :-) -Johanna.
