Postpartum fatigue

Dashmularishta is a potent nutritional supplement for the women in the postpartum phase. Most women develop weakness during this phase mainly due to the exhaustion from the labour. They also suffer from general body aches or pain in the limbs following delivery. These complaints often tend to last for several weeks and interfere considerably with the woman’s routine life. Dashmularishta can help in relieving these symptoms and ensure a speedy recovery of the new mothers.

It can prepare them physically and mentally to face the demands of motherhood. It also boosts their metabolism. Dashmularishta can improve the nutritional status of the women through the high vitamin and mineral content of the herbs used in its preparation. Additionally, it also increases the digestive power, which results in a better absorption of nutrients from the food into the blood. This further enhances the supply of nutrients to the body and allows a woman to overcome weakness and fatigue occurring during the post-delivery phase. The antioxidant and nutritive properties of this medicine ensures an overall wellness of the women.

Mental stress

Most women feel extreme stress during postpartum phase. They develop fear and anxieties about the challenges posed by this new phase in their life. They are constantly under stress about whether they will be able to take proper care of the baby. They are also stressed and exhausted due to the changed routine and their struggle to match their own schedule followed since several years to the constantly changing sleeping and eating times of the baby. This may also cause lack of sound sleep. Additionally, the hormonal changes occurring in the body after the delivery can affect the mental state of the women causing mood swings.
