Ancient Chinese society, like other traditional societies, developed practices for the month after childbirth to strengthen and balance a woman’s body. They observed how a pregnant woman’s body will give the best of her to ensuring a healthy child. If there are nutritional deficiencies the mother will suffer first. Thus, carrying and birthing a child represents the single greatest depletion in a woman’s life.
They also understood that times of challenge good be transformed into great opportunities. Proper care could not only restore health, but reset her constitution (and hormones), so that she was healthier than before pregnancy. The ancient practices centered on rest, nutrition, and restoring the abdomen/pelvic floor. My program is a modern adaptation of these practices.
