All our confinement meals are packed with natural goodness and free of MSG.
A proper postpartum (Confinement Period) starts with the discharge of lochia and the revitalization of Qi and blood during the first week of the confinement period. And the second week onwards, the focus is to replenish the needed nutrients for the body. This would help to nourish postpartum woman back to her optimal level and to boost breast milk for mothers who breastfeed.
At Mum in Moon, we tailor our confinement meal according to this belief. Our confinement meal menu is planned to achieve the “Transforming and Generating” process. “Transforming” represents the purification process (whereby toxins are expelled) and the restoration of the uterus to its original state. “Generating” represents the nourishment of the body to replenish nutrients, blood and Qi.
Phase 1: Detox
Due to blood loss during delivery, a postpartum mother will be deficient in energy, essential vitamins and nutrition. However, you should not rush into intense replenishment at this stage because it can add burden to the stomach, intestines and kidneys, making the mother feel even more tired. Therefore, the focus of this stage is to:
- Revitalize the internal organs of the body
- Remove the negative residual substances within the womb
- Eliminate water retention in the body
- Heal scars formed during process of giving birth
- Strengthen the functions of the internal organs such as kidney, liver and womb.
The choice of ingredients should be tender and easy to digest and absorb in order to avoid causing gastrointestinal burden. This meal plan is suitable for mothers who have just given birth whose internal functions have not yet been fully restored.
Phase 2: Restore
After 7-14 days of detox, the postpartum mother is ready to enter the second stage of the confinement cycle. This stage aims to revitalize the internal & external muscle groups of the body. Huge amount of energy was used to carry the baby in the womb. The Spine, hips and joints have been overly-exhausted during pregnancy. Enormous effort was then used during labour to “push” the baby out.
For those mothers who breastfeed, after the first 3-7 days of getting used to breast-feeding, the milk ducts should have unclogged at this stage. Therefore, the meal plan for mothers who breastfeed will include food and soups that encourages the production of high quality and quantity of milk.
Stage 2 aims to:
- Ease back pain, body aches and strengthen core muscles
- Ensure smooth discharge of breast milk for baby-feeding
- Restore the loss of hormones to ensure proper discharge of breast milk
- Shrink the womb which was expanded during birth
