Ayurvedic medicines for the new mom

Ayurveda emphasizes on the use of proper medications to regain the health and vigor of mothers after delivery. And from my experience, I have to concede that it is very effective. The medicines mentioned here are the ones which I took as per the direction from my doctor. Please note that the medicines and their dosages vary from doctor to doctor. It also depends on the patient and their health conditions. So please consider anything mentioned here only as a guideline. Please check with your health practitioner before you actually start with any medication.

Please do not start the medication if you are still on Allopathic medicines (vitamin tablets and other similar supplements doesn’t count). Please read through the complete list of things to keep in mind while having Ayurvedic medicines.
