It should be abandoned as it belongs in a time when access to medical care was not what it is today. People should not expect to be treated in tax-funded public hospitals with western quality medicine if they refuse to accept instructions from the same level of professionals and instead choose suicidal practices like this.

I do not know any Chinese women, including my wife, who has enjoyed postpartum confinement for one month, much less longer.
