Why British Chinese mothers won´t
go out after giving birth

BBC, by Amber Haque

Original Article

Posted By:ketchuplover, 11/14/2017 8:42:28 PM

"Postnatal confinement" - where new mothers do not leave the house, have visitors or shower for a month after giving birth - is said to be widespread among the UK´s Chinese community. Experts warn that few in the medical profession know this occurs. "Being confined in your flat is important," says Ching Ching Turner, from her home in London that she has not left since giving birth 28 days earlier. (Snip) Confinement is common across Asia and in China there are special hospitals where mothers stay confined for a month, sometimes only seeing their babies once a day. It is carried out

Comments:
I have Asian friends (1st generation Americans)who observe the cultural practice of the woman not eating anything but white chicken meat and water for the month after giving birth. I haven´t asked them about the "no-shower" rule. Yikes!

"...mothers stay confined for a month, sometimes only seeing their babies once a day."

Interesting that this is to protect the health of the mother and baby. Years ago my doctor did not approve of newborns being hauled around outside the home for the first month or so. He believed their immune system was not sufficiently developed.

An alternative definition for the word “confinement” is the period when the mother gives birth and afterward. When I was born, new mothers and their babies were kept in hospital for ten days.

The article is about the Chinese following their own ways, their own medicine, at a time when their “natural” medicine is being looked at with new eyes in our “conventional medicine” world.

My late grandfather swore by his Chinese herbalist and he lived to be almost 90. I don’t recall his ever seeing a conventional doctor.

Different from us is not necessarily bad.

During my testimony yesterday at a Congressional Committee hearing about abortion, I testified how abortion does not address the needs of the most vulnerable in our country and should NOT be considered a government program such as Medicaid or food stamps (SNAP).

As a man noted for his simple tastes and who does not seem receptive to new and exotic foods, Donald Trump presents a challenge for banquet organisers where the US president is the guest of honour. (Snip) The dishes on the menu included coconut-flavoured chicken soup, seafood chowder, Kung Pao chicken, stewed beef steak in tomato sauce, braised vegetables in premium broth and grouper fillets in hot chilli oil. Local delicacies that disturb Western culinary sensibilities, such as thousand-year-old eggs and bird’s nests, or like shark’s fin soup raise ethical concerns, were definitely off the menu.

When The Saints Of First Baptist Church

Their Prayers

“Prayers don’t work. We need legislation.” This has been many secular progressives’ mantra in response to recent mass shootings in America. On Sunday, after a gunman murdered more than 20 people during a church service in Sutherland Springs, Texas, some of them found proof of the powerlessness of prayer. (Snip) But for those familiar with the Bible’s promises concerning prayer and violence, nothing could be further from the truth. When those saints of First Baptist Church were murdered yesterday, God wasn’t ignoring their prayers. He was answering them. “Deliver us from evil.” Millions of Christians throughout the world pray these words

U.S. President Donald Trump, one of the most powerful and controversial political players in the world, is coming to Tokyo on Sunday, kicking off a 12-day trip around Asia, including South Korea and China. (Snip) “This is a big difference from the Obama administration,” said one high-ranking official, speaking on condition of anonymity. President Barack Obama, Trump’s predecessor, was often reluctant to meet with Abe, and multiple officials said communication between his aides and their Japanese counterparts wasn’t necessarily smooth. But since his inauguration on Jan. 20, Trump has met and talked with Abe at an unprecedented pace. They have held four

Saudi Arabia’s newest citizen has sparkling eyes, raspberry lips, and no hair. She has appeared on the cover of a fashion magazine. She once beat Jimmy Fallon at a game of rock-paper-scissors. Saudi Arabia’s newest citizen is a robot named Sophia—and as Cleve R.

From Escaped Nuns to a Knight in

hroughout the Middle Ages, the Catholic Church held power across much of Western Europe. With a population that was largely illiterate and a Bible written in Latin, the church and its representatives—priests, bishops and the pope—acted as the sole intermediary between humankind and God. But on October 31, 1517, a monk named Martin Luther inadvertently launched a revolution. Although popular legend holds that he nailed his 95 Theses into the church door at Wittenberg, Luther himself disputed that notion, writes Eric Metaxas in Martin Luther: The Man Who Rediscovered God and Changed the World. Instead, Luther sent a letter to the

Police snare scalpers at

Beijing police have detained 54 people on suspicion of registering hospital appointments and illegally selling them to genuine patients at highly inflated prices. (Snip) Scalpers — known locally as huangniu, or yellow bulls — have long been a problem for China´s health system, as they often mean lengthy waiting times for patients unwilling to pay their exorbitant prices. Depending on the experience of the doctor, the cost of booking a hospital appointment is usually under 100 yuan ($15). The scalpers caught in Beijing were selling appointments for as much as 2,000 yuan, according to the police. "These scalpers came from six gangs,"

A Japanese town is hoping to lure new residents with this hilarious - if bizarre - zombie video game trailer. The small town of Kosugemura, in the mountains to the west of the Japanese capital of Tokyo, houses just 700 inhabitants. With many of its young people leaving town for work and studying opportunities, authorities are attempting to attract new residents. But instead of making the town seem picturesque or peaceful, they turned to using bloodied zombie outfits. This funny video shows residents pretending to be the living dead in a mock video game trailer. It shows all stages of the game, from character selection

Ten Famous People Who

The Great Influenza Pandemic of 1918 reached just about every continent throughout the globe. It’s perhaps better known as the “Spanish Flu,” a moniker given to the virus in part because Spain’s press, unshackled by the wartime restrictions laid upon the news media in other countries, robustly reported on its deadly impact. In the United States, for instance, the Sedition Act of 1918, made it a crime to publish any utterance that would interfere with the war effort. As the virus spread throughout America, the press was initially non-alarmist. But the death and illness that followed were unmistakable; the pandemic

Dropping turkeys from planes

To some it´s an Ozark Mountain Mardi Gras that includes live turkeys being dropped from a low-flying plane to an eager crowd below. To others, it´s just animal abuse. The 72nd Yellville Turkey Trot opened Friday with questions over whether the turkey drop portion would continue. The Chamber of Commerce for the small northern Arkansas city has distanced itself from the tradition it once endorsed and is hoping a "phantom pilot" won´t fly over this weekend. But that hasn´t stopped thousands of people from emailing the chamber about doing more to protect the birds. "Why don´t you jump yourselves with no parachute.

Masaab Darwish wants to open a street-front restaurant and a slaughterhouse, mainly for fresh chicken and turkeys, at 822 Walden Ave., near Academy Road.

One year after losing the presidential race, 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton is still questioning the “legitimacy” of President Trump’s victory, accusing Republicans of voter suppression tactics in swing states and Russians of influencing votes through a “disinformation campaign.” “I think that there are lots of questions about its legitimacy,” Clinton said of the election during a video interview posted online Friday by the liberal Mother Jones website. Clinton lamented how “we don’t have a method for contesting” the election in the United States and called for an independent commission to “get to the bottom of what happened.” She suggested that she

NBC host Megyn Kelly said President Trump is being hypocritical for condemning Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., for sexually harassing and assaulting a woman. "Who that has been accused of sexual assault would have the gall to preach to others about sexual misconduct. How infuriating that would be.

Asked directly if she believed Mr. Clinton should have stepped down at the time, Ms. Gillibrand took a long pause and said, “Yes, I think that is the appropriate response.” But she also appeared to signal that what is currently considered a fireable offense may have been more often overlooked during the Clinton era. “Things have changed today, and I think under those

Apparently, North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un had a unique idea for farmers when they fertilize their crops, and it’s causing a wave of parasitic infections across the country: Use human excrement.According to Yahoo News, in 2014 Kim Jong-un instructed farmers to mix human feces with animal waste and organic compost to make fertilizer for their fields. Yahoo notes, “With a lack of livestock to provide animal fertilizer, agriculturists poured the human excrement, also known as ‘night soil,’ on their fields.”Choi Min-Ho, a professor at Seoul National University College of Medicine who specializes in parasites, told Reuters, “Although we do not
