Continuing traditional postpartum care techniques

 Maathasthaani is a part of postpartum care, a manoeuvre after childbirth, done especially in Jharkhand. The dai stands the new mother up against wall and presses her forehead on the lower belly just above the pubic bone and moves her head upwards. Dais say that blood clots leave the body and the womb finds its place.
