Benefits of Ajwain in breastfeeding for the new mother

  • Improves back pain and strengthens back muscles

The strain of delivery impacts the health of the back muscles and the spine. Ajwain seeds contain anaesthetic properties that  improve back pain, and help women recovering from childbirth.

  • Promotes internal body healing

The seeds are also ideal for healing the body post-delivery as these have anti-inflammatory properties.

  • Increases milk production in lactating mothers

In some parts of India, there is a belief that ajwain can increase production of milk in lactating mothers.

Consuming ajwain water can greatly improve the lactating mother’s health. Here is the recipe.

Ajwain or carrom seed water


  • ½ teaspoon of powdered ajwain seeds
  • 2 teaspoons powdered jaggery
  • 1 cup of water


  1. Mix the jaggery and ajwain seed powder with the water until the mixture dissolves completely.
  2. Allow the mixture to simmer on the gas stove for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat and cool the mixture until it is warm. Strain the liquid and consume immediately. You may add a few drops of ghee if you like the taste.

Apart from consuming it as a drink, carrom seeds can also be included in your diet in many ways. Include this seed with other spices to add flavor to dal.
