Ayurveda gives importance to the care of mother and her baby at every phase of her life under antenatal care and post-natal care. A post-natal period comes just after the expulsion of placenta up to 6 weeks thus defined as Puerperium and duration called as Puerperium period. Postpartum or Puerperium is explained under Sutika Paricharya in Ayurveda classics. Acharyas have explained Ahara (dietary regimen), Vihara (Lifestyle), Aushadhi (Medicines) and management since from pregnancy up to 6 months. After delivery. For Sutika there is happiness and contentment on one hand and weakness, fatigue due to Dhatuksheenata, Balakshaya, Agnimandya, loss in blood and fluid loss during delivery. Sutika is more prone to diseases due to aggravation of Doshas. Thus to follow Sutika Paricharya gives strength and restores her energy and health.
