Unfortunately, it is an old myth which simply refuses to go away. A woman should not be confined to her bed and kept warm or hot. Another useless tradition is a woman should not wash her hair for one month – hilarious but, unfortunately, very sad.

A couple watch their newborn on a TV screen at the Heyi Confinement Center in Xiamen, Fujian province. The center takes in only 20 pairs of mothers and babies at a time and charges 48,000 yuan ($7,400) to 198,000 yuan per month.[Provided to China Daily]
