PARTURITION MANAGEMENT (PRASAVA PARICHARYA) IN AYURVEDA – A FUTURE PANORAMA
Keywords:Prasava, labour, Ayurveda, Parturition, Sushrutha, Charaka
Ayurveda, a holistic science practiced since 5000yrs gives us a comprehensive view of the prasava or the labour, its stages, signs and symptoms of the delivering woman with the prasava paricharya or the management of labour and even the management of complications like placental obstruction in detail. Though in the present condition it is not possible to manage the labour with Ayurvedic management completely, the principles, concepts and the techniques of ancient Ayurveda can be adopted in association with the Modern conventional management to aid in the smooth delivery with healthy mother and the baby. Future studies can aim at involving Ayurvedic techniques and concepts as an add-on treatment in the successful management of labour with a view of reducing the discomfort and the pain experienced during the labour and also to improve the quality of life of both mother and the baby.
