Support in the days after giving birth is essential and through traditional physiologic-centered practices and proper care, the postpartum time can be one of health, vitality, nourishment and ease. Innate Postpartum Care is rooted in physiologic-based practices and incorporates key elements of traditional postpartum care. This work provides deep nourishment and tending in the postpartum time, supporting the optimal health and well-being of mothers, parents and families. Ancient postpartum traditions from around the world all share deep common roots and include practices that are rooted in the body’s physiologic design.
