Childbirth and delivery occur in a matter of hours or even days. This process involves contractions until the baby and placenta come out. After birth, the mother needs intensive rehabilitation care in her confinement period.
Proper eating habits will help recovery quickly after childbirth. For 9 months the food consumed plays a role in fetal growth. After giving birth, diet is also just as important to help the body recover and restore energy.
There are some things, especially Chinese herbal soups that should be consumed after childbirth or during confinement for quick recovery. These foods should be included in your confinement food menu.
After months of pregnancy and having to undergo a ‘pregnancy diet’, now is the time for Moms to want to return to enjoying a delicious confinement food menu. However, keep in mind, these foods must remain nutritious so that breast milk is of good quality and the body returns to shape.
What foods should be taken during the confinement period?
When looking for the right confinement food to eat or add to your confinement food recipe you need to consider some certain things. After giving birth, the body condition will weaken. The digestive system is weakened because there is an energy imbalance in the body, which is exacerbated by a lack of sleep and erratic eating patterns due to the sleep cycle of untrained babies.
In addition, your body also is also undergoing unfamiliar changes. From your new figure and overall physical condition that gets easily tired to vaginal changes (if you give birth normally), these are all things you may have never experienced before throughout your whole life.
It is important for mothers to ensure that the food taken during the confinement period consists of various types and is balanced according to the recommendations of the Singaporean Food Pyramid.
Maternal nutritional needs can be referred to as the Postpartum Diet.
This is important to ensure that all the necessary nutrient requirements can be obtained to restore maternal health as well as successful breastfeeding.
