After delivery, a girl needs an healthy diet and full of rest. A great care is much appreciated. During pregnancy, the foetus gets all the nourishment from the mother. Because of that, mother’s seven nourishing tissues will get weakened. After delivery, due to loss of blood and other fluids in the body, it creates emptiness and the mother becomes weaker and more stressed out. This period is called Sutika in Ayurveda, which means mother after delivery. To relax and rejuvenate, abhyanga (oil massage) helps a lot. After delivery, usually Vata gets aggravated due to emptiness created in the lower abdomen. As Vata gets high, the digestive fire becomes weak. According to Ayurveda, the most suitable oil for one’s body is the best remedy to normalize vata.

Baby Massage –
Childbirth is a very natural process, but it is stressful for both child and mother. During the delivery, Vata will be aggravated in the child. Therefore Abhyanga (Oil massage) with warm oil helps to calm down Vata dosha and to promote growth of the baby. For the proper development of the baby, a balanced Vata is very important. Ayurveda says Vata is dominant during childhood and old age, so it is very important to balance vata in these stages.
Doctors used to say No to oil massage as it may cause skin rashes or cold, cough, etc. to the baby. But researchers have proven that hand stimulation during massage helps to produce oxytocin hormone, which improves mental bonding between mother and child by creating a pleasurable moment. The physical touch helps to develop the neuromuscular system in the child. Oil helps for weight gain and to give essential nutrition.
