Ancient postpartum traditions throughout the world—while specific to the cultural context in which they come—all share deep common roots. These postpartum traditions all point to the importance of an extended resting period, warmth, specific foods, and bodywork after birth.
Many of these traditions also teach that how a mother is cared for during the postpartum time—will be profoundly reflected in her health through menopause and beyond.
These commonalities of postpartum traditions throughout the world are not a coincidence—they are rooted in our physiologic design.
When we understand postpartum physiology, we understand WHY proper postpartum care assures health and vitality through menopause and beyond. When we understand the link between postpartum health and post-menopausal health, we understand HOW to optimally care for Mothers; and we understand why postpartum care is not a luxury but a necessity that needs revival on Earth at this time.
