The few weeks postpartum are filled with marvel and delight as you welcome your new baby into your life. It can also be a really hectic and challenging time for mothers as they adjust to life with a newborn. With the disconnection of family through distance as well as busy and stressful lives, many mothers suffer with the little to no family support around them.

A sacred window to holistically support new mothers in their home to heal, bond and be cared for.
In many cultures, millions of women temporary adhere to postpartum hibernation (or confinement), a practice for new mothers to rest at home with the assistance of a family member, confinement nanny or a postpartum doula (support person). In Ayurveda, a 5000 year old Indian healing tradition, this period is considered a sensitive time for mothers. In India mothers are encouraged to abstain from chores, food preparation, cleaning or even hosting guests. Mothers are given the often undervalued need for deep rest and time with their newborn.
