Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) believes it is important to replenish a woman’s loss of blood during the birth process because if left unaddressed, this fragility welcomes a myriad of long term health problems.

Three key periods to improve women’s body constitution

Traditional Chinese Medicine believes that women have three key periods to improve their body constitution: menarche (a girl’s first menses), pregnancy and childbirth and menopause. Amongst them, the most important period during pregnancy and childbirth is “confinement”.

Mothers exert a lot of physical strength and vitality during the birth process; therefore after giving birth, confinement is done for recuperating purposes and to allow the body to recover fully. Hence, diet and nutrition are very important during this critical period.

According to the four diagnosis methods of Traditional Chinese Medicine, confinement should be customised according to each body constitution, focusing on achieving the balance between yin and yang in the body. For example, moms with weak and cold constitutions need to include more warming foods while moms with hot and dry constitutions need a yin-nourishing diet plan.
