The importance of warmth in postpartum care and Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Throughout the pregnancy journey, the mother nurtures and carries the baby, the placenta, and amniotic fluid, creating a warm and nurturing internal environment. However, after giving birth, the mother experiences a sudden shift in her physical temperature as this warm internal environment ceases to exist.
During the process of pregnancy and childbirth, the mother's body undergoes depletion of blood and qi (energy). Furthermore, following childbirth, the mother's torso and womb are exposed to the cold meridians within her body. The womb, which was once the size of a watermelon, now feels cold and empty. These significant changes in the mother's body requires adequate care and restoration after giving birth.
