Home Orientation

At the beginning of your 8th month of pregnancy, parents schedule an orientation meeting with the program's director to discuss all aspects of the home visit. You will learn:
  • What to expect from your treatment and how your massage will feel
  •  How to ready your home for treatment
  • A walk through with the technician to discuss where to store the massage table and linen
  • Show your technician where to access and operate kitchen equipment such as kettle, hob and washing up material
  • Access to the bathroom, bedroom and dedicated massage areas in order to prepare your daily treatment
  • A general introduction to Maharishi Ayurveda and how the doshas influence the physiology following birth
  • Food recommendations and preparation
  • Guidelines for your daily routine during the course of your treatment
The orientation meeting takes approximately one hour.

Your Treatment
at a Glance

Once the mother delivers she notifies the mother baby technician of her readiness to begin the program anytime after the third day following delivery. (10-14 days after a C-section).
  • At the mothers convenience the ayurvedic technician comes to her home for treatment including daily massage with herbalized oils.
  • The technician also answers questions and reinforces the mothers understanding of the diet and activity guidelines.
  • Approximately two weeks after delivery, the parents are given instruction in ayurvedic baby massage, bath and exercises.

While a family member or trusted professional looks after your baby, the
ayurvedic technician helps you onto the massage table for an hour of
complete pampering and nurturing. She massages you with warm oil, specially
herbalized to balance and strengthen your physiology, then tucks you into
bed with fresh linen, made extra cozy with hot water bottles.

You rest as needed while the technician draws you a hot bath. After several
days of this, you feel surprisingly refreshed, revitalized, and ready to
take on the challenge, rather than burden, of caring for your newborn.
Treatment takes approximately 2 hours per day from start to finish.
