Ayurveda was born 10,000 years ago, its ancient roots nurtured by the Tamil Siddhas of southern India who developed a system of life-extension, life-enhancement, and a natural approach to nourish body, mind, and spirit. this system also offers comprehensive support to new mothers and parents in the fields of fertility, conception, pregnancy, and postpartum. And it’s one of Surya’s greatest loves. Under the care of Ayurveda, the physical and emotional transformation that begins at conception and continues through postpartum provides new mothers with a tremendous opportunity. During this period of rapid change, Surya’s Mother Baby Program sets the stage for the most valuable experience for parents and their growing baby, and for the ongoing and maximum health and wellness of the family.

In Ayurveda, the six weeks following birth are the most precious and important time for mother and baby — formative for the baby, reformative for the mother. During this time, the mother's physiology is as delicate as her newborn's, and mothers can honor this opportunity to reset their body in a way that makes them stronger than ever. Surya's in-home Postpartum Treatment helps mothers recover more quickly from childbirth, with faster hormonal rebalancing, a higher rate of successful lactation, better breast and uterine health, and quick and natural weight loss. And a healthy, happy, and nurtured mother can best nurture her baby. Surya's Doulas also teach parents how to provide an Ayurvedic Baby Massage using oils prepared just for the baby, helping to establish deep and lasting communication between parent and child, and, as research shows, to help babies develop stronger immune systems, healthier behavioral patterns, and more rapid motor skills. Surya’s Doulas come to your home up to six days a week for 1.5 to 2.5 hours, centering their visit around a deeply soothing and restorative abhyanga. Each visit is also opportunity to receive help with lactation, diet, baby issues, and any other support you might need. Surya's Doulas can provide time-proven herbal remedies, and teach you how to prepare simple and nourishing Ayurvedic meals, or, as an option, prepare delicious Ayurvedic meals for you and your partner. This six-week window sets the stage the health and wellbeing of both mother and baby for years to come.Meet our Doulas

Ayurveda seeks to balance, nourish and enrich, and in the case of parenthood, that process traditionally begins from the moment a couple wishes to conceive. At Surya, each partner participates in a weeklong Panchakarma Series, which helps the body eliminate physical and emotional toxins, and in this case, is especially focused on creating healthy, strong, and balanced eggs and sperm. Ayurveda also understands that the journey towards motherhood begins with a proper preparation of the womb. A mother's womb is the baby's first home, and Ayurveda helps bring that home to its most nourished and most nourishing state, creating the optimal conditions for the smoothest pregnancy, and for the healthiest and happiest baby. Giving the growing baby the best environment, the best beginning, the best of each parent blended and balanced on the level of doshas, sets the baby firmly on the path of health and wellness. Where infertility is a challenge, Ayurveda provides effective and natural practices and therapies such as diet, herbs, treatments and home routines. Many couples who have failed at western treatments, such as IVF, find success at Surya with natural, Ayurvedic protocols.Experience it
