Labor is the greatest and quickest change in a lady’s life. In only a couple of hours her body loses huge measures of earth (for instance the child and placenta), water (in amniotic liquid and tears) and fire (through her blood and sweat). Ayurveda stresses adjusting the components in your body, which means you have to supplant the earth, water and fire that is lost in labor.
Numerous Newborn Mothers say they feel ‘divided out’ or ‘became scarce’ and what they truly mean is the air and space components in their body are too high and need adjusting with earth and water. Fire is required with some restraint to revive a mother’s processing, however a lot of flame will consume water and prompt abundance air and space.
