Pregnancy is a time of joy and excitement for mothers-to-be. Yet, it is also a time when women must be more careful about their health and well-being. One common practice in many cultures is confinement, which refers to a period of rest and recovery after childbirth.
Pregnancy can be a wonderful journey for expecting mothers, but it also comes with its challenges, especially during the postpartum period known as confinement. During this time, new mothers need to take extra care of themselves to recover from childbirth, promote milk production and heal their bodies.
Postpartum mothers are frequently urged to take a herbal confinement bath to help promote recovery after giving birth. This is because a woman loses large amounts of “Qi” and blood during childbirth, placing her body in a “cold” phase. This “cold” phase leads to the accumulation of “wind” and weakens her body.
For new mothers, the confinement period is critical to recover from childbirth and nourish their bodies. At PEM, we believe that a confinement diet with tasty and nourishing meals is essential in restoring a mother’s health and providing the necessary nutrients to support breastfeeding.
Bringing a newborn baby into the world is a joyous experience, but it can also be a challenging time for new parents. The postnatal period, or confinement period, can be especially difficult, as parents navigate the challenges of caring for a new baby while also recovering from childbirth.
Postpartum can be a difficult time for mothers, with their bodies trying to heal from giving birth and a newborn baby to care for. A confinement centre provides first-time mothers a supportive and nurturing environment to ease their transition into motherhood.
