Importance of Confinement Period
The history of postpartum confinement tradition can be traced back to the Han Dynasty over two thousand years ago, ‘The Book of Rites’ define the confinement period to be ‘in the month’.
In the aftermath of the pregnancy and production process, mother’s body is left in an undesired state where the uterus needs to slowly return to its original size and organs slowly return to their original position. The month after childbirth is therefore crucial to the future health of mothers, which considered to be the ‘Confinement Period’.
In the Western culture, there are similar practices such as European ‘Lying-in’. Each culture has their own variation, but all consist of the same practices – rest, warmth, cooked food and helping hand in baby care.
