Your popo (grandmother) and mama (mother) always give you the tender unconditional motherly love. And that is what Popomama Confinement Food does – to give you that love and care you need during your confinement month through proper dieting.
As a new mother, you will spend the next one month on healing and confined to yourself. The diet during confinement month is the buttress to the practice of balancing the “yin and yang”. In traditional Chinese belief, after a woman gives birth, there is an empty space in her body. Her body is now open to ligament tear, and “yin” or wind could come into this open space, causing ailments in the future and preventing the body from recovery. The “yin and yang” of confinement stresses on staying warm, remaining indoor and abstaining from cold food and drink.
