Faster Recovery with PEM's Confinement Herbal Package Singapore

Confinement is important for all mothers after childbirth.

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), not receiving sufficient medical care after labour can result in a series of complex health problems.

We know it can be hard to do your own research and buy your own confinement herbs while you recover from childbirth.

That is why, along with our confinement care services, we also offer pre-packed confinement herbs to aid postpartum mothers during their confinement month.

Our confinement herbal packages are specially formulated based on our more than 30 years of experience using Chinese herbs in authentic TCM medical halls.

During the postpartum confinement period, there are four crucial stages in which new mothers would need the most nourishment.

A woman loses large amounts of “Qi” and blood during childbirth which places her body in a 'cold phase.' This phase leads to the accumulation of 'wind' and weakens her body.

According to TCM practitioners, to prevent the occurrence of “wind-dampness syndrome” (风湿) in later age, it is important to restore the “Qi” and expel the excess 'wind' during confinement.

Yokness Mom Series Confinement Herbal Bath can help mothers expel 'wind,' improve blood circulation, and reduce pain after birth; not to mention, it makes for a more bathing experience.



Frequently Asked Questions

Herbs are one of the essential elements of confinement. These herbs each have health benefits for new mothers recovering from childbirth.

When you hire a confinement nanny, you may be given a confinement herbs list to prepare before their arrival or during their service period.

Some of the common herbs that you would most likely come across in your confinement are red dates, longans, wolfberries, and black fungus.

Some of the best herbs for confinement include angelica sinensis (Dang Gui), Chinese yam (Huai Shan), and Solomon’s seal (Yu Zhu).

  • Dang Gui helps promote blood circulation and regulate the immune system and is used in blood nourishment soups.
  • Huai Shan aids digestion, improves kidney, and liver function and is used for kidney tonic soup.
  • Yu Zhu helps improve lung health and reduce inflammation.

Other herbs to put in your bath water include Fructus Viticis, Blumea Alsamifera, and lemongrass.

Collectively, these herbs can be brewed and mixed with plain water to be made into your herbal bathwater.

Ideally, you should have herbal tea and soup every day in your confinement.

The confinement period is based on individual preferences, so it differs from one mother to another. In Singapore, Chinese tradition usually dictates a one-month period.

Our confinement herbal packages conveniently come in pre-measured packets that can be adjusted to suit stronger or more subtle taste preferences.

One herbal and soup package would usually last a month or roughly four weeks.

Traditionally, new mothers are advised not to bathe or wash their hair at all during the whole confinement period. It is believed that contact with water can cause issues like flu and cold as well as rheumatism later on.

However, there is no scientific evidence supporting this.

Most importantly, remember that as you will be handling your newborn, you have to keep yourself clean at all times.

Therefore, it is best to take a warm confinement herbal bath every day!

Drawing a confinement herbal bath is easy.

No need to gather various herbs individually; you only need pre-packed bathing herbs like the ones we offer at PEM.

Our confinement herbal bath package comes in 28 individual packets.

  1. Put one herbal packet in boiling water. Leave the ingredients to seep into the water for about 15 to 30 minutes until you are satisfied with how the bath water turns out.
  2. Pour the boiled herbal water into a pail of more comfortable room-temperature bath water.
  3. Mix well and the bath water is ready for use!

Yes, you may drink red dates tea every day.

It is simple to prepare, has natural antidepressant properties, and offers various health benefits for mothers, such as boosting the immune system, replenishing blood, promoting womb and liver health, and improving digestion.

Red dates are the ultimate confinement ingredient for recuperating mothers.

Rich in vitamin C and iron, they promote wound recovery, strengthen the immune system, help prevent anaemia, boost milk supply, and even help get rid of water weight.

Red dates are also used in herbal concoctions to balance the taste with their natural sweetness.

The confinement period consists of a set of practices to help you heal and recharge after childbirth.

Since you are still recovering from wounds, avoid any form of strenuous activity or exercise, such as lifting heavy things or standing and walking for long hours.

In terms of diet, keep your meals nutritious, and refrain from consuming spicy food, processed food, and alcohol.

That said, keep everything in moderation. Avoid overconsuming herbs and traditional supplements. PEM's confinement nannies are trained in confinement herbal preparation to avoid accidents.

The food you consume will affect your breast milk, so be careful about what you eat. Here's what to avoid:

  • Skip caffeine and alcohol to protect your baby’s delicate digestive system.
  • Avoid high-mercury seafood like tuna and king mackerels that may cause gastric problems.
  • Do not consume canned food and salted fish, as they are high in sodium, which can worsen your postnatal water retention issues and other existing health concerns.

Refuel with energy-boosting foods. Consume enough fluids and foods that are rich in iron, protein, and a variety of other vitamins like vitamin C, vitamin A, and folate to help with recovery.

Just like the name says, the postpartum confinement period is the time when new mothers who have just given birth will mainly rest.

A traditional practice by many Chinese families, confinement usually lasts for about a month.

During this period, moms will be served with confinement meals daily and recuperate at home before they go back to their normal daily routine.

During their confinement month or the first month after their childbirth, mothers will be served traditional Chinese confinement food that includes fresh poultry, vegetables and Chinese herbs.

Mothers are also encouraged to have nutritious whole foods in their confinement package to help with recovery, including pork, chicken, fish, pig kidney soup, pork innards, beans, and leafy greens.

These ingredients are usually cooked with aromatics like ginger, sesame oil, and Chinese herbs, which are believed to help replenish the body and keep the body warm during postpartum recovery.
