A sacred window to holistically support
new mothers in their home to heal, bond
and be cared for.
Post Partum Doula Services
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.
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.
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.
Maiaveda has responded to this and now offers post partum doula care
for new mothers in the comfort of their own home with Marye O’Brien.
