Malaysian Postnatal Practitioner Services
Creating your postnatal recovery plan.
In Asia, it is common for families to engage a live-in postnatal practitioner for four to six weeks after childbirth to focus on the recovery and recuperation of the mother. The drain on a woman’s body during pregnancy, and then the strain during childbirth is well understood. Therefore, specific body treatments and meals are provided for 30-40 days to restore and replenish the mother. This is why mothers have much stronger and faster recovery in the East.
Now it is possible to engage your very own personal, postnatal practitioner focusing on your recovery from pregnancy and childbirth, in the privacy and convenience of your home. Our emphasis is holistic care. We support the body’s active healing process by replenishing the drained nutrients so the body can repair itself consistently and quickly.
A better physical recovery has a positive impact on hormonal re-balancing, the release of retained, water and fat and improved energy levels, which contributes to a holistic physical and mental restoration. – Valerie Lynn
Malaysia is a beautiful country located in Southeast Asia, slightly north of the equator. It has the lowest rates of postpartum mood and anxiety disorders in the world at just 3%. This is not a coincidence; it is due to a carefully planned recovery after pregnancy and childbirth that new mothers follow. Malaysia’s deep postnatal heritage consists of Indian Ayurvedic, Chinese and Malay influences. This combination of cultures, with common underlying postnatal principles, results in true holistic recovery philosophies, beliefs, treatments, skills, and guidelines that may be adapted for any family, culture, or religion. The purpose behind the Malaysian recovery protocol focuses on the “active, process of the revision of pregnancy,” or when the body is reversing the effects of pregnancy.
