Topic: Postnatal care (Sutika paricharya) through Ayurveda
Abstract: Women’s health is having prime importance for the well being of the family and society. Ayurveda give importance for the care of mother at every phase of her life specially when it comes to antenatal care and postnatal care. Postnatal care certainly co-related with Sutika Paricharya explained in Ayurvedic classics. Sutika paricharya are well described by our Ancient Ayurvedic scholars in their respective samhitas. They have described dietary regimen, living style, and other required management for whole pregnancy and up to 6 month after delivery. In this stage mother should be educated to take care of herself and the new born baby. The regimen that helps the woman to regain her lost vitality and helps her body to revert back to pre-pregnant state is called sutika paricharya. During this period she restores her health and strength both physically & psychologically.
