After Delivery Care Of Mother For First Three Months By Ayurveda

The first three months after delivery is very important for the mother. During this period, the expanded uterus shrinks back to normal position, ligaments, muscles and tendons associated with uterus start gaining back the lost power. Mother also recovers back the mental strength, which will be a bit low in the first week after delivery.
post partum mother care

First week after delivery: 

We have learnt in detail about care of mother in the first week after deliver.

Ayurvedic Post Natal Care – The First Week After Delivery 

Ayurvedic post natal care based on season and place

The following explanation is further to the first week care.

1. Oil massage and hot water bath – should be continued for next 2 to 3 months. Oils preferred are – Balaswagandhadi Taila, Ksheerabala taila or Bala taila. It helps to strengthen the lower back, hip area, bones, muscles and ligaments.

2. Lumbar belt –
Using an abdomen belt with moderate pressure at least for 4 – 5 hours a day helps to strengthen back, supports uterus and ligaments.

Rest – While mild walking is quite ok, rigorous work, heavy weight lifting is totally discouraged. It leaves the uterine muscles and tendons weak. Uterine prolapse during post mid life is linked to improper after delivery care of mother and rest.

In case of normal delivery – rest for at least 3 months.
In case of CS delivery – rest for at last 4-5 months.

Ayurvedic medicines:
Ayurveda explains different Ayurvedic products based on the need of the mother. Here is a general bird view regarding a few basic Ayurvedic products. Consult your Ayurvedic doctor for suitable suggestion. Self medication will be dangerous.

As a general rule, Dashamoolarishtam is advised for initial couple of months. It helps to relieve pain and inflammation. It also boosts immunity and keeps most of the infections at bay.

Jeerakarishtam is advised especially for mothers during winter and rainy season. It helps to keep the body warm due to its hot nature. It also helps induce normal lactation.

Shatavari Gulam is usually advised to achieve overall hormonal balance. It also helps to improve lactation.

Pulilehyamusually administered in Kerala Ayurveda practice. It is administered third week onward for 30 – 45 days.

Balanta Kada – number 1 – 3 is often prescribed by a few doctors.
Balant Kada no. 1 is  administered soon after delivery till next 10 days
Balanta kada no.2  is administered from 11th to 20th day after delivery
Balant Kada no. 3 is administered from 21st day after delivery till next 2 – 3 weeks time.

Note: All the products are not advised together. usually doctor chooses permutation and combination of medicines based on symptoms in the mother.

Commonly used herbs:
Musta – Nut grass – 
It helps to improve breast milk production and also relieves milk duct clogs. Its paste is made with water and applied over breasts to relieve inflammation and to improve lactation. If the baby has mild fever or diarrhea, a water decoction of this herb is made and administered to the mother.

Shatavari – A teaspoon of powder is mixed with a cup of milk and boiled. It is administered for a period of 5th day to 3 – 4 months to improve breast milk production. Apart from improving breast milk, it is also useful to calm the mind (useful in post partum depression). It assists in normal involution of uterus as well.

Yashtimadhu (Mulethi, Licorice) and fennel are the other two herbs used for improving lactation.

She can have all the warm foods and freshly made hot dishes.
Avoid ice creams and excess oily foods.

  1. nice blog and good work in the field of ayurveda dr hebbar.

  2. Good information. If every female takes this treatment after delivery more than 70 % female common diseases may prevent.

  3. Sowmya Vijayakumar says:

    Can this lumbar belt be helpful in the situation for the person where the stool is generated (especially in the evening) but there is a lack of pressure to push it out rather than straining in the toilet leading to Piles?

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      It might not be useful as a pressure source for bowel evacuation. Including fiber rich diet ( bran, cauliflower, cabbage, berries, green leafy vegetables, Celery, squash, beans, mushroom oranges.) and having warm water frequently during the day should help in easing the bowels.

  4. Where exactly abdomen belt should tie?

  5. Dr, unfortunately I landed on your web site late and very late on this article.But I Thank God for coming across such a wonderful Doctor virtually!Now its two and half years over after my delivery, can I take any of the above mentioned Ayurvedic medicine to prevent mid life prolapse of Uterus?

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Hi, thanks for your kind words of appreciation. I would rather recommend taking Ashwagandharishtam – 10 ml mixed with 10 ml of water, at night for four months, as a general tonic to have improved strength and stamina.

  6. Hi doctor, it is a very informative article for a expecting mother.I am a mother of 1.5 year old breastfeeding daughter.Which tonic should I use to enhance my immunity, stamina and further successful breastfeeding?
    Sir, can we take shatavari and ashwagandha together and in what amount.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Shatavari alone is good enough. – 2 grams of powder along with a cup of milk, once or twice a day, for a period of 2 months should be good.
      Even 1 gram Ashwagandha can be mixed with it

  7. sudharsini says:

    Thank you doctor for the reply!

  8. I have read all the articles about post natal mother care.All are wonderful.At present I am doing the same in US to my daughter.Iam giving dasamula rasayanam,sowbhagya Sunti,and shatavari Guda.In food I am giving methi,dill,and leafy vegetables adding pepper,Sunti mixed with jaggery along ghee is giving,Abdomen belt is followed” I am doing oil massage with gingily.Are these things correct Dr, My daughter has hemorrhoid problem,kindly suggest some remedi. With regards,Padma rangachar

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      You seem to be doing all correct. For hemorrhoid, Triphala churna – 3 grams with water / buttermilk at night after food should be good. If symptoms do not improve even after 2 weeks, please consult a doctor directly.

  9. Nice suggestion

  10. Very informative article.
    Is there anything you would suggest for back pain after csection?

  11. I found the article very useful. I had my delivery 22days back. Now I have urine infection, infection in my stitches and light fever every evening. Am taking antibiotics. I am breastfeeding but don’t really feel hungry. As a result of all this I feel really low n depressed.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Hi, till the time the infection is totally brought under control, please follow your doctor’s advice obediently.

  12. I was just searching in Google ,thank god found this site please let me know if balantha kada works after 2 1/2 months of delivery . Please suggest I have the bottles number 1,2,3. My son had jaundice for first month so was not able to take the medicine .
    My mother was asking to take now , my son is 2 months 10 days.

    Thanks in advance

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Hi, yes it works after 2.5 months of delviery.
      Use the number 3 – for next 2 months.

  13. I was unaware of all this in my first pregnancy n at my mother’s home also I didn’t take much rest n care so I have my abdomen bulge, my convert is if I follow all this in my second delivery. N tie lumbar belt also can I be alright. ..?

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Yes. You will have your chance to aim at better health after your second delivery. All the best for that 🙂

  14. I landed on this informative article today. I’m a breastfeeding mother of 7 month old baby delivered by C section. Have a bulging tummy and regular back ache. Can i use dashmoolaristha now and for how long? Will it enhance milk supply?

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Hi, if you want to enhance milk production, then Shatavari Kalpa granules – 1 teaspoon twice a day would be better option. You can take Dasamoolarishtam as a general tonic for a couple of months. For the backache and bulging tummy, you can start exercising and diet control.

  15. Geetha Vijay says:

    Dear Dr. J.V. Hebbar,

    I am very much impressed and very happy plus grateful to you for your selfless service of educating us with the life saving and pain saving techniques. Ayurveda being Rshiproktam, I consider myself lucky o have discovered your articles. I am a die hard fan of Ayurveda. In the absence of my Guru who guided me through and through in my Ayurvedic lifestyle, your articles come to me as a great solace. Dhanyaasmi.

    I wish to get more customized tips from you. But my location(chennai) and unsuitable
    feasible conditions prevent me from doing so.

    I am now 4 months pregnant and being guided by a wonderful lady ayurvedic doctor here. But I am not able to talk to her frequently and clarify my doubts.

    Your articles are so very useful for me. Dhanyaasmi again.

I got constipation after consuming these tablets.Dr pls tell me the purpose of these tablets.

I am breastfeeding the baby and seems like she is struggling a little with gas and crying while pooping – i am hearing from people that this is because of mother’s food habits. I am eating only vegetarian items – and mainly rice and rice items.
    Any suggestions please ..

I am taking dashamoola mixed with jeerakarishta. Along with bananti leha… Pls suggest how can i get rid of my cold?

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      If the Bananti leha is spicy, then the cold will be taken care of automatically. If your leha is sweet and not spicy, consider adding a bit more of ginger and black pepper to it.

  30. Hello Dr. I am a mother having a 2 months baby. I have a doubt on diet. What kind of vegetables I need to have, because some veggies cause cold. Please let me know. And also how long I have to tie lumbar belt.


    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Hi, Excluding those causing cold such as cucumber, ash gourd, you can have the rest. If you include a bit of spices in the diet then it is good.

      • Vijay Muraleedharan says:

        Dr. Can you please tell me, vegetarian diet required when having Ayurvedic medicine? I’m asking for my wife. She is now 50 days after delivery.

        Thanks in advance.

        • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

          Hi, there is no rule that vegetarian diet should be followed while taking Ayurvedic medicines / treatment.

  31. Hi Doctor,
    Very nice information you are giving.
    Kindly let me know about the diet of postpartum apart from medicines.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Diet depends on once natural diet habits.
      Too coolant things such as ice creams, excess of cucumber, excess of orange, etc should be avoided.
      Foods that are freshly prepared and in hot condition is good.

  32. Bhavani suman says:

    Hi dr ur really great that ur helping lots of mother. I got cesarean. after one week my baby ill complete 4 month I don’t even have drop of a breasmilk to feed my baby I have bought mahasowbhagya gada is it useful and how to take that and which oil is good for my bone strong I have lots of back and legs pain

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Thanks. Yes, Mahasouwbagya guda – 1 teaspoon 2 times a day is useful. Along with that, please also take Shatavari kalpa granules – 1 tablespoon twice a day, with milk. Try it for a month. If still no improvements, consult a doctor directly.

  33. Hello doctor, I had a c section delivery 6 days ago . I had a doubt regarding water intake during postpartum. In our family they only give 1 glass of water a day.pls suggest on the reason of less water intake .

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Hi, usually such a restriction on water is unnecessary. It is best for the new mother to take boiled and cooled water or boiled water in lukewarm condition, as and when she feels thirsty.

  34. Hello Dr. I am taking post delivery ayurvedic medicines. I am a non vegetarian. Do I need to stop taking non veg while taking these medicines? I am taking arishtam and lehya chawamprash. Also tell me how can I reduce my tummy. I had cesarean and my baby is 1month 17 days old.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      If you are accustomed to non veg food, you can continue them while taking Ayurvedic medicines. No need to stop it, just because you are taking Ayurvedic medicines. Do not worry about reducing tummy as of now. Because you have undergone cesarean, it is best to plan for exercise, diet etc after 5 – 6 months after child birth.

  35. Very nice Article Dr. I wish i could saw that one and half year early. My daughter is 1.5 years old now. I am suffering from frequent colds and my tummy is out like i am seven months pregnant even after normal delivery. Can i take the balant kada and other herbs prescribed above now?

  36. Sir, I delivered my baby 15 days back.. As advised by my mother, I have been having/driniking sowbaghya sunthi , eating sunthi powder mixed with rice , 5 cloves of garlic slightly tossed in ghee along with jeera , a glass of warm milk with a pinch of turmeric since post delivery.. Please let me know if I can continue using the above and suggest if any thing else I should add to the above for better health, better lactation and stamina..
    Thanks in advance..

  37. Dr i delivered 40 days back.i have piles problem.I take jeerakarishtam and ashokarishtam .is it good ?I cook my foods alone.pls give instruction about rest and exercises.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Hi, if there was excess bleeding then continue Ashokarishtam till bleeding stops. After that, it makes sense to continue Jeerakarishtam and Dashamoolarishtam for another 2 months time.
      If it was normal delivery, (Not cesarean), you need to take rest for 3 months, after which you can start with 10 minutes Yoga per day. If it was cesarean, then rest for 6 months time.

      • Hi,i m 27yrs old i have 2yrs baby c-section now my weight is 70kg,can i Tripahala powder,and i m feeding baby aslo. please suggest me and it can reduce belly

        • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

          Yes, Triphala 1 teaspoon along with a teaspoon of honey, 2 times a day after food for 4 months time.

  38. Hi Dr, I delivered a healthy baby girl 3 weeks ago via a c-section. However my milk supply is not high. Is there anything that I can do to increase my milk supply ?

  39. It is so difficult to find information about ayurvedic post natal care after a c section. I have been searching the Web but my efforts are in vain. I had my 2nd baby 2 weeks ago through c section. I checked with local ayurvedic centre and they said come when healed fully. So it is not clear when I should approach them. Also their treatment is for 3 days only. There is a massage and a bath involved. What kind of benefit will I get from 3 days treatment only? May be you can shed some light on it? Thanks in advance.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Hi, unless the suture wound is healed, massage is not a good idea.
      After it has healed completely, massage in an Ayurveda center for a week is good to get. After that, for next 4 – 6 weeks, self massage with Mahanarayana taila or Dhanwantaram taila at home, 30 minutes before hot water bath, in the morning is sufficient.
      For the most part, the remedies and herbs that I have explained above hold good even for the C section operated mother. Just that their remedies time start once after they start taking good amount of foods orally.
      All the best!

  40. Hello sir,
    I have delivered baby girl on July 13 and till now haven’t taken medicine for healing back pain.can I use balinta kada 1,2,3 now.iam almost near to two months post delivery.please suggest any other care to be taken.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      You can start with balanta Kada – no.1 – 15 ml, mixed with 15 ml of water, 2 times a day after food.

  41. Hi Doctor,
    My wife delivered baby girl 5days back (2nd delivery), baby wait 2.75kg,
    Her stomach look bulgy, its necessary to go for massage or just taking bath and belt is enough,

    Please advise we are living in dubai (native of tamil nadu).

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      If the delivery was normal, then massage can be started after 10 days after delivery. No need to go to some Ayurveda clinic for massage. She can do self massage with just 2 teaspoons of oil – Mahanarayana taila or Dhanwantaram tailam. Both are easily available in Kottakkal shop in Dubai. Please search. She has to undergo hot water bath after oil massage.

  42. Hi Doctor, first of all thanks much for showing patience in replying to n number of questions and thereby giving useful informations… It is really very helpful. I got delivered on 10th oct, 2016. I took epidural delivery. After one week, i started taking ayurvedic treatments including body massage, hot water bath, & had consumed panchakolasavam & now consuming dhanwantharam kashayam along with dhanwantharam tablet. From next week onwards i will be taking dashamoolarishtam & jeerakarishtam. Even after all these massages & hot water bath, i still have little bit back pain & hip pain. So, i wanted to know is it because of the epidural that I have undergone for my delivery?

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Hi, it might be due to epidural surgery or just because of pregnancy weight.
      Since it’s been only 20 days after delivery, continue with current medicines. Apply Mahanarayana taila to the back, 20 minutes before bath, everyday.
      Wish you and your baby a very good health. 🙂

  43. Hi,Doctor ….for bath what is the normal temperature of the water using.
    my maid she throw very hot water from distance,i cant tolerate this very paining
    Medically this is ok or not

  44. Hi,Doctor, it’s a very good article after postnatal care .

  45. Is nalpamaradi oil can b applied on kids…i heard dat nalpamaradi oil should be massaged after one yr old that true???

  46. Nalapamaradi oil or nalpamaradhi coconut oil which is good for my 8 month old baby??

  47. Hello dr,

    I have undergone c section two months before. My tummy looks bulgy and from hip to thighs I have weight and I want to reduce it. As I need to join my job back Is there any safe medicine is there to reduce those fat ? And currently I’m breast feeding.


  48. Thiyagarajan says:


    My wife delivered a baby 45 days back. He is still continuing taking Dhanvantari Kashayam, Puli Lehyam. Medicine is remaining for next 1month.

    She is taking as per Doctors prescription.

    Can she continue the above medicines even after 45 days and for next 45 days.

    Please clarify our doubts.

    Thanks a lot for your time. You are doing a great job in helping others.

    Thanks and Regards,

  49. Thanks for the reply dr. After two months what medicine should I take and where will I get that? I got some medicines for post pregnancy from kotakkal which is aahwagandhadhileham, mustadi Marma kashayam, dasamularishtam and dhaksharishtam and now taking this for a week. How long do I need to continue this?


  50. Dear Sir,
    First of all big thank you for the advice and guidance you have been providing here. Coming to my question my wife delivered baby 2 weeks back. The baby had jaundice for few days eventually it is reduced but not gone completely, can my wife take dashmoolaristam, Soubhagya shunti and jeeraka ristam now itself or wait for the jaundice to completely disappear, Appreciate your opinion on this. Thanks

  51. Sir,
    Having chyavanaprasham after delivery is advisable or not

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Yes, after 1 month after delivery, 1 teaspoon before breakfast, with a cup of hot milk for 2 – 3 months of time.

  52. Dear Dr Hebber. Your articles are brilliant thankyou. Im learning so much from them. Can mahanarayan tail be used over stitches?

  53. Hi Dr, I’m 11 days postpartum and started dhanwantharam kashayam 2 times a day yesterday. Baby was very much comfortable and unsettled after that day and night. Is this related?

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      It seems unrelated to the Kashayam. If the symptoms persist for more than 3 – 5 days time, then consult a doctor.

  54. Hi Dr,
    After delivery rest means do we have to completely lay down in bed? ?

  55. Hi dr can a mother take meat n fish while taking kashayam n arishtam in post natal period?

  56. Dear sir,

  70. Hi Doctor, I delivered on 27 th February, 2017 (normal delivery) After 2 months of delivery, I had urine infection and pelvic inflammation. Still I have pain in the pelvic region. I have just started taking Dashmul Kadha. Should I take anyother kada?
    Thank you.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      It is good to continue Dashmul kada – 10 ml, mixed with 10 ml water, 2 times a day after food for 2 months and then stop it.

  72. hi doctor.i started taking kashayam n arishtams as per instructions from an ayurvedic my baby is very colicky.keeps crying out of stomach ailments.last time samething happened wit my first child n i stopped the der some way to deal with this without stopping medicines altogether?

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Hi, depends on which kashaya and arishtas you are taking.
      Probably you can reduce the dose to half of each or add a little more water to kashaya and watch for improvements.

      The abdominal pain in children need not always be due to mother’s medicines.

    Hi doctor….will the use of these medicine cause weight gain ?

  74. Hi. I delivered a bby on 3rd April but he passed away after 20 days due to an infection. My question is can I take a Balant Kadha 3 now since it’s more than 2 months and also I am not nursing. Also advise some other Kadha which I can consume. Thanks

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Yes, you can take Balant Kadha – 3 for 1 month time.
      Also take
      Dasamoolarishtam – 5 ml, mixed with 5 ml water, 2 times a day after food for 2 months and then stop it. Available in amazon website here –

      If it was normal delivery (not cesarean), then you can start exercising after 3 months time and can start planning for pregnancy again after 9 – 12 months.
      Wish you all the best 🙂

  75. I delivered to my baby on Feb 1st via c section had taken dasamoolajeerakarishtam for about 3 months. Should I continue this or can I stop? I have shoulder pains, hips aches and weirdly pain behind my heels and have noticed spider veins on thighs and behind my knee/calf area around ankle bone? When I get up after sitting for a while find it hard to stand, my ankles and hip hurts. Will this go in time or can I use anything to reduce the pains and spider veins that are visible now? At the moment iam taking lavanya kalpam and ashwagandha choornam for helping with the lactation is there any other medicine should use to increase breast milk as my baby is on formula milk too as my milk is not sufficient for her. Is there any massage I can go for?

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Hi, I think you can stop dasamoolajeerakarishtam, lavanyakalpam and ashwagandha.
      Please take as below for next 2 months.

      Apply Maha Narayana taila to the painful area, 10 minutes before bath everyday. Available online here –
      Shallaki capsule – 1 capsule 2 times a day after food. Available online here –

      For increased lactation –
      Shatavari Kalpa granules – 2 teaspoons 3 times a day after food with a cup of milk – If not locally, available here –
