Nourishing Food 
Ayurvedic nutrition: supporting your Pregnancy step by step

 

During pregnancy your baby and your heart are connected. The umbilical cord, known as Garbhanadi or "the nadi of the baby" from the baby's navel attaches to the placenta absorbs the nutrients that your heart pumps into your blood vessels.

 

The essence of the food, transformed through your digestive capacity, nourishes both you and your baby: your digestive fire (agni) needs to be supported to create an "optimal juice" (rasa). The flow of this juice from your heart to your womb should be constant and free from any obstruction.

This is achieved by a proper "agni care" and by balancing your doshas. Ayurveda designs a specific nutrition for each gestational phase that responds to the developmental demands of the baby and ensure your tissues to stay strong.

 

The positive impact of the Ayurvedic nutritional regimen on pregnancy and childbirth prepares you to enter the postpartum period (Sacred Window), during which we work together in defining how to adjust your food intake based on your unique needs, to support your healing process as well as encouraging breastfeeding and when it is time, the return into your sacred bleeding.

This offering includes a monthly consultation (pregnancy) or a weekly consultation (home visit postpartum) that includes:

  • Nutritional and Lifestyle advises

  • Ad hoc herbal remedies
