Pregnancy parturition and puerperium are the most important events taking place in a woman's life. Even though as we all aware of the importance of postnatal care, it is the most ignored in present era due to busy life schedule. As mentioned in our classics the śūnya śarīratva (Empty bodied) of sūtikā (Puerperal women) due to labour pains, rakta parisravaṇa (Bleeding) and dhātu śithilatā (Unsteadiness of dhātus) causes vāta kopa which may lead to diseases that become incurable or curable with difficulty. Proper adherence to postnatal care explained by āyurveda classics will results in faster restoration of mother's health by attaining replenishment of dhāthus, steadiness of body, and proper reproductive cycle. Along with the dietetic regulations and external therapies practicing some of the yoga procedures based on physical strength with restricted time, duration, and in a proper manner will provide an additional support in strengthening the abdominal, pelvic fascia and muscles, reducing the abdominal and pelvic girth, preventing excessive weight gain by reducing the fat deposition, and also helps in maintaining emotional stability. The study was conducted in 12 patients, 6 were included in normal vaginal delivery group and 6 included in caesarean section group. Along with sūtikāparicaryā specific yoga exercises were also advised. Remarkable outcome was noticed in reducing the weight and abdominal girth.
