Surya’s Mother Baby Program focuses on natural fertility, conscious conception, nourishing prenatal treatments and a six-week in-home postpartum program.
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 one of the most important times for both mother and baby, formative for the baby, and reformative for the mother. In fact, Ayurveda considers these six weeks to be the most precious time in a mother's life. During this time, the mother's physiology is as delicate as her newborn's, and mothers can and should honor this opportunity to reset their body and spirit in a way that leaves them stronger than ever. This six-week window can set the tone for the health and wellbeing of both mother and baby for years to come. Surya's in-home postpartum treatments not only help mothers recover more quickly from childbirth, but help with faster hormonal rebalancing, with a higher rate of successful lactation, better breast and uterine health, and quick and natural weight loss. Through Surya's daily Ayurvedic treatments, your improved sense of well-being is also passed to your child. Taking good care of yourself is taking good care of your baby, and a healthy, happy, well-rested and rejuvenated mother is able to provide the best care for her baby. This is the time to give yourself full permission to be nurtured, so you can best nurture. Surya's Mother Baby Doulas also teach parents Ayurvedic practices to nurture their baby, such as the wonderful Ayurvedic Baby Massage, using oils that Surya's Doulas have prepared just for your baby. This is not only a rewarding way of establishing deep and lasting communication between parent and child, but research shows that babies who are given Ayurvedic Massage develop stronger immune systems, healthier behavioral patterns, and more rapid motor skills, all of which give newborns the the best foundation for a happier and balanced life. In the six-week postpartum program, Surya's Doulas help you for up to six days a week in the comfort of your home. Each visit lasts 2 to 3 hours, and is centered around the deeply soothing and the restorative abhyanga. Each visit is also a great opportunity, if you wish, to get help with lactation, diet, all baby issues, and any other related support you might need. Surya's Doulas can provide herbal remedies and teach you how to prepare nourishing Ayurvedic meals, and if you like, as an option, can themselves prepare a daily Ayurvedic meal for you and your partner. And on one special visit, after your baby's umbilical cord has dropped, Surya's Doulas will teach you and your partner the art of Ayurvedic Baby Massage.Experience it

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
