Since many misconceptions exist in the field of postpartum care today, it is essential to have an awareness of the scientific approach to postpartum care. Wrong usage of many traditional medicines can cause a variety of complications for the newborn through breastfeeding, also it can lead to maternal obesity and other digestive problems for the mother.
Mother should take medicine meant for uterine cleansing for the first three to five days after delivery and for the next two to three weeks special medicines have to be taken for the uterus and other organs to reach the prenatal stage. Though it is mentioned the use of oil or ghee preparations during this period, stipulates that it must be based on the digestive capacity of the individual. Ayurveda prescribes postpartum care based on the mother’s physical condition, climate, and even geographical location.
Organs, including the uterus, reach the prenatal stage, in about one and a half months after the delivery. Medications that help with this process are prescribed during this period. After that, medicines for rejuvenation can be taken. Postpartum oil massage, special kizhi, and subsequent medicated water baths are very important for a mother’s health.
