Postnatal confinement: A tradition to follow or abandon?

A Western pregnant woman gets sheltered as much as a Chinese woman does – but I guess the time she spends in confinement, as you so quaintly put it, is limited to a few days or a couple of weeks. No, Western women also don't have to abstain from taking a shower. In fact, I seem to remember many expectant women go to special pregnant women fitness lessons. They do pregnancy exercises to keep their body fit.

The center provides nutritious food to the new mothers. During the period, the women should rest and eat special food to help them recover. [Photo/chinanews.com]
