Conscious Fertility & Conception - A Weeklong Couple’s Panchakarma Retreat

From the moment a couple wishes to conceive, Ayurveda and Surya provide natural therapies that help eliminate toxins and support the development of healthy, strong eggs and sperm. Centered around highly-personalized Panchakarma programs which last four hours per day for ideally seven consecutive days, these immersive pre-conception therapies establish optimal conditions for the healthiest, most successful pregnancy, and the healthiest, happiest baby.


Ayurveda helps to balance, nourish and enrich, and in the case of parenthood, that process begins from the moment a couple wishes to conceive. At Surya, each partner participates in a specially designed week, helping the body eliminate physical and emotional toxins, and focusing on creating healthy, strong, balanced eggs and sperm. Surya also understands that a mother's womb is the baby's first home, and Surya helps bring that home to its most nourished and most nourishing state, creating optimal conditions for the smoothest pregnancy, and for the healthiest and happiest baby.

Where infertility is a challenge, Ayurveda also provides effective and natural practices and therapies such as diet, herbs, and home routines. Many couples who haven’t had success with western treatments such as IVF, have found success at Surya, using these time-honored and natural methods.

Surya Signature 6-Week Mother Baby Postpartum Series

The 40 days following birth is a precious time for mother and baby, formative for the baby and re-formative for the mother.  In these 6 weeks, the mother's physiology is as delicate as her newborn's, which creates an opportunity to reset the body, making it stronger than ever.  Surya's in-home postpartum treatments help mothers not only recover swiftly from childbirth, but find themselves feeling strong and better than ever.  Hormones are also rebalanced, which help more successful lactation, better breast and uterine health, and speedy and natural weight loss. A healthy, happy, and nurtured mother can best nurture her baby. 

Surya's highly-trained Ayurvedic Doulas also teach parents how to provide Ayurvedic baby massage using oils prepared just for their child. These massages help establish deep and lasting communication between parents and child and even more, as research shows, develop stronger immune systems, healthier behavioral patterns, and more rapid motor skill development. Surya’s Doulas come to your home 1-6 days a week for around 2 hours, each visit centered around a deeply soothing and restorative postpartum abhyanga massage. Each visit is also an opportunity to receive help with lactation, diet, baby issues, and any other support you might need. Surya's Doulas provide time-proven herbal remedies, and teach you and your partner how to prepare simple and nourishing Ayurvedic meals, good for both of you, and the baby. This package is also a beautiful gift, as it strongly contributes to a solid foundation of enduring health and well-being for both mother and baby, and for the entire family.
