Conscious, Ayurvedic conception

Ayurvedic guru Martha Soffer teaches her favorite subject -- the Ayurvedic secrets of conscious conception, trimester massage, nutrition and herbal therapies, and everything about babies. In a series of 30 short lessons, Martha guides new mothers, and fathers, in the traditions that lead to the most fruitful pregnancy, the smoothest labor, and make the most of, as it’s known in Ayurveda, postpartum’s sacred “4th trimester.” From fertility to the six weeks after your baby is born, Martha presents nourishing and practical wisdom to help and support new mothers, and to give each baby the strongest foundation possible for the best, healthiest, and richest life to come.

Kind Words from Martha's Clients

Recovery on a deeply restorative level...

Cara Lisco

Surya was a supreme blessing after the birth of my second child… The six weeks of visits helped me recover from the birth on a deeply restorative level, and enabled me to take on my new role as mother of two with calm and focus. They also taught me how to do Ayurvedic baby massage, which I’m convinced helped my son develop into a healthy, avid nurser. The six weeks of visits helped me recover from the birth on a deeply restorative level, and enabled me to take on my new role as mother of two with calm and focus.

Forever grateful for Martha’s presence.

Muriel Hurtado

We welcomed the sweet soul of our baby Ra in February of 2017. This wonderful journey wouldn’t have been possible without the support and loving care of Martha and her team at Surya. They helped me achieve pregnancy after some difficulties with very specific treatments and Martha stood next to me during the delivery and the months that followed. I learned so much from her, including many of the practices we continue to do, like massaging our baby. All the memories I have of the birth include her presence and wisdom. She knew what needed to be done and when, because her intuition is spotless. In the weeks after the birth, Surya took the best care of us, and my recovery was fast and painless. Ra and I looked forward to Surya’s visits every afternoon. We are forever grateful for Martha’s presence. She held my hand with faith, right into the world of realization.

Far more than a skilled Ayurvedic physician...

Shirelle Sharf

Martha is an embodiment of love and wisdom. I was blessed to have her and Surya support me throughout my pregnancy and postpartum. Martha is far more than a skilled Ayurvedic physician—her intuitive nature and heart-centered care is palpable to both mom and baby, and transmits beautifully into her work. Through Martha and Surya’s nurturing treatments and guidance, I not only experienced improved health, but also received the tools to properly care for myself and my baby, both during this sacred time and beyond.

Loving, kind, and deeply experienced.

Kate Purdy

Martha is naturally knowledgeable in all things mother and baby. For a resource that can guide you through this life transformation - Martha is the beacon of hope and understanding. She and Surya helped me so much,, from preparing for conception all the way through offering advice on how to now care for my baby and my post-partum recovery. She, and everyone at Surya, is loving, kind, and deeply experienced.

FAQ

  • What if I’m not happy with my purchase?

    Our mission is to help mothers and babies (and the whole family) benefit from Ayurvedic wisdom through courses designed to change lives. If you don’t find our course useful, just say so and we will refund your purchase. Your feedback, positive or negative, is essential.

  • Will I need special tools or supplies?

    All remedies we share can either be made in your kitchen or purchased from a trusted supplier. You will need to purchase some foods and herbs to experiment, but your home probably already has all that you’ll need.

  • Are your recipes animal-friendly?

    Yes. As a general rule, Ayurveda is plant-based and vegetarian. Occasionally, animal products are used medicinally, particularly ghee, the healing powers of which are covered extensively in the course. Our recipes and products rely on organically cultivated or sustainably wildcrafted plants and minerals, so that your health also supports the health of our planet.

  • What if I need more help understanding the content or getting a recipe to work?

    We are here for you at every step. If you have any difficulties, please reach out to us via Info@suryaspa.com and a member of the Surya Team will happily help you.

  • Does Surya still offer doula services?

    Yes, and it’s one of our favorite things to do! Surya has a beautiful Mother-Baby Program, with Surya Doulas trained in the same Ayurvedic bodywork, nutrition, and herbal therapies that Martha has used for decades.
