March is Women’s History Month, a celebration of women’s contributions to culture, history, and society and has been observed annually in the month of March in the United States since 1987. National Women’s History Alliance has announced the annual theme for 2021 to “Valiant Women of the Vote: Refusing to Be Silenced”. The month of March highlights the contributions of women to events in history and contemporary society.
Here in Ayurved Sadhana, we want to bring the focus to Women’s Health and to so many wonderful women who have contributed to women’s wellness and still doing the hard work of supporting millions of moms, babies, and families during pregnancy and postpartum – Doulas, Mid-wives, and Birth Workers around the world since birth of humanity. We are going to be telling the stories about these heroes and honoring them during Women’s History Month at Ayurved Sadhana.
Most of women go through the motherhood and face the various challenges during pregnancy and postpartum periods. This time of our life is very sacred and intimate. We not only go through physical changes in body but also mental, financial and relationship challenges which either can break or make our lives. Still, we as women and as a community support each other since history of time. Doulas and mid-wives have always played an important role even before hospitals and doctors existed. They are our unsung heroes.
We see so many women struggling to get support during the pregnancy and postpartum and have so many questions and need some answers, this is where, we as women need to come together. This is why we wish to explore and further bring up the conversation of maternal healthcare and stigma during Women’s History Month.
