Emma Gamelsky is an Ayurvedic health practitioner, doula and community health advocate.  She has graduated from the Colorado College, California College of Ayurveda and Sacred Window School for Newborn and Maternal Health.  She currently works as an Ayurvedic postpartum doula for New Life Birth Services, as a mentor for student AyuDoulas and as the Maternal Child Health Director for NM March of Dimes.  As an Ayurvedic doula, she works closely with each family to ensure preparation and support during the six weeks after baby is born.  Through individualized health plans and specially prepared Ayurvedic meals, mothers experience deep rejuvenation and recovery after birth.  With Emma’s care, mothers often experience a smooth postpartum period, abundant milk supply, increased energy and less digestive upsets and emotional ups and downs.  Emma’s wish for the world is that every family receives the love and support they need, during their sacred postpartum window.

Postpartum Doula, Emma, explains how Ayurvedic Care hones in on the ancient principles of Ayurveda to offer food as medicine, a prescription-like application of food for postpartum mothers and newborns to facilitate a rich recovery experience that lends itself to optimal health. 40 days for 40 years!

The Sanskrit word sneha means both "oil" and "love". Doing self-massage with oil is similar to being saturated in love. Practicing warm oil massage during postpartum promotes deep healing and restoration to the tissues. It is a great way to relieve stress and tension at the end of a day.
