“坐月子” or Confinement is a tradition that has been passed down generations for decades. New mothers are recommended to undergo confinement for at least 28-30days.
So what exactly is confinement and why do we recommend it? Through the process of birthing, pregnant mothers undergo a variety of changes physically and mentally. And after they give birth, mothers has to go through yet another series of post-natal adaptation to cater to the new born. More often than not, all these inevitable changes take a toll on the health of new mothers. TCM believes that during this period of time, new mothers are the most vulnerable and susceptible to external pathogens (such as wind, cold, dampness).
Hence, it is crucial for new mothers to take care of their body, so that they can bounce back to their initial state of health, or even better. New mothers should ensure that they receive sufficient nutrients, as well as the right set of nutrients that would boost their recovery process and reduce the occurrence of future post-partum conditions.
TCM believes that the key to speedy recovery is through acknowledging these changes and targeting them specifically.
