  Garbhini Paricharya and GarbhaSanskara (Ayurvedic Antenatal Care)

The Indian tradition places immense faith in the unblemished bond between a pregnant woman and the fetus taking shape in her womb. The underlying principle of Garbhini Paricharya and GarbhaSanskara (Ayurvedic Antenatal Care) then, can be identified as the relationship between the expecting mother’s thought process, and the development of the unborn child. The science of pre-natal care talks of how the every-day aspects of the mother-to-be’s life influence intricately the formation of the fetus’s brain and moulds its core personality. 
During the pregnancy tenure, it is imperative that the expecting mother maintains holistic health – both physical and mental. It is believed that the foundation of an individual’s character is laid from the time it was a fetus – beginning with its conception and evolving through the nine months of pregnancy.
Excessive Ama or toxins in a pregnant woman are commonly caused by improper digestion. Ayurveda prescribes cleansing processes in Panchakarma to rid the body of such Ama. This ensures that the expecting mother’s body systems are not overloaded and function easily. Panchakarma should be undertaken with the help of a trained Maitra practitioner. Ama can also be avoided by following these simple dietary practices like
sipping plain hot water frequently throughout the day and eating a full, warm, cooked meal at lunch time, with all the six tastes described by Ayurveda.
One of the best ways of achieving this all round health that is indispensable for pregnant women is undoubtedly Ayurveda. Not only does the Maitra’s Ayurvedic Panchakarma process purify your bodily systems, it also cleanses the mind and soul, emptying all negativity and pessimism from the thought process. The dietary pattern that are suggested by Maitra are customized to suit the gynecological specifications of the expecting mothers and Ayurvedic massages that form an integral component of the Panchakarma of pre-natal and ante-natal care help to ensure a normal delivery.

Music therapy is also one of the latest trends in modern gynecological pre-natal treatment, but this has been advocated from the initial days of Garbhini Paricharya and GarbhaSanskara (Ayurvedic Antenatal Care). It is believed that the type of music that a mother-to-be hears or the images she sees formulate the abilities of the child developing within her womb. Many Garbhini Paricharya and GarbhaSanskara (Ayurvedic Antenatal Care) special music CDs are available to help the enthusiastic mother to impart the correct values to the fetus. After all, Indian parenting has always been about building a strong value-based infrastructure in the child’s mentality, and if Ayurvedic procedures aid the cause, why not give it a convinced shot? There is a special 9 months regime in Ayurveda that will bring about a healthy mother and child till the end of the gestation period, so that both of them need not worry about developing immunity.

The benefits of Garbhini Paricharya and Garbha Sanskara (Ayurvedic Antenatal Care) can be enlisted as:

  • Mental, Physical, Intellectual and Spiritual development of the baby
  • Improvement in immunity and good skin complexion
  • Help in overcoming hereditary diseases or weakness
  • Introduce and multiply attributes of the couple and trim the negatives passed on in pregnancy
