Three stages of healing

1. Uterus Recovery

Up to 6 days after delivery

Special care is essential for the mother during this period to ensure that remaining blood and tissue are cleared from the uterus. Hence, confinement herbs prescribed during this period assist with uterus contraction and lochia discharge.

2. Digestive Wellness and Breastfeeding

7 – 21 days after delivery

This period is a crucial turning point as mummy’s metabolism resumes to normal and the body turns from “warm” to “cold”. Warming the body and improving the digestive functions through the use of confinement herbs are crucial as the former can prevent invasion of “wind-dampness” that could aggravate pain and water retention; the latter is crucial for absorption of nutrients that form the foundation for a steady supply of quality breastmilk.

3. Vitality Booster

22 – 28 days after delivery

The healing objective during this period is overall wellness. Such overall wellness is essential to sustain good health, in addition to ensuring the body is well prepared for subsequent pregnancies. Hence, through the use of confinement herbs, we aim to strengthen the joints and muscles, to nourish the blood and regain overall vitality.
