Welcome!

A warm thank you for your interest in Ayurvedic Postpartum Care.  Since Ysha Oakes (the founder and Director of Sacred Window School) passed away, some dedicated volunteers have been keeping her websites updated and have continued offering Ysha’s books and some of her foundational webinars. 

AND, some really great news is…

Several members of our team have recently split off and launched a new school and professional Ayudoula Training program through the Center for Sacred Window Studies.  Be sure and check it out, especially if you are a professional birth worker!!


Motherhood is a remarkable journey which opens the heart in uncharted ways, yet comes with obstacles and detours we must navigate.  The postpartum window is sacred time, a “Kayakalpa”, in which the possibility for intense healing, rejuvenation, and inner expansion is possible.  Yet, if not consciously attended to, can lead to exhaustion, a decline in vital energy and numerous challenges for mom and baby.  There are time tested, simple and powerful tools using food, herbal support and lifestyle routines that can offer new moms the “sacred window” they deserve for the first 42 days postpartum and beyond.  

Ayurveda integrates a complete care paradigm with the soul’s purpose to really serve a new mother and baby.  This ancient health care system offers comprehensive insight and step-by-step, personalized guidance for how to nourish, rejuvenate, and spiritually support newborn mothers and babies.  

People who study these principles learn profound preventive and rejuvenative wellness care techniques.  Mothers who use these techniques and knowledge rarely suffer many of the common complications of the postnatal time including difficulties with lactation, colic, depression, weight, energy, hormones and many more.  Students have said that this knowledge has totally changed the way they look at the postpartum window.  Ayurveda offers care for the first 42 days after childbirth, wherein we can create patterns powerfully affecting mother and child for a lifetime and even benefit unborn generations.

We believe that taking proper care of mothers is essential for all people everywhere: mothers, partners, families, communities and most of all, babies. We see each Sacred Window student as an emissary for a healthier future for our world and our species. We believe that our programming is evolving and growing better each year.
