Chinese Angelica Root (Dang Gui) helps to regulate menstruation and soothe pains and the intestines. It is warm and sweet in nature and can strengthen the blood.

Note: Breastfeeding mother should avoid breastfeeding at least two to three hours after drinking alcohol. This is because within 30 minutes of its ingestion, the equivalent of one standard drink has a mildly sedative effect on a baby that is being breastfeed. Excessive amounts may result in drowsiness, deep sleep and weakness. In addition, if drowsy may not suck well which in turn leads to a reduction in breast milk supply.
Current medical experts recommend that a breastfeeding mother should not drink more than 1-2 (25 -50ml) units of alcohol per week.
Why is a confinement period important?
Giving birth to a child causes alot of stress to a woman’s body. Excessive bleeding, sweating, body pains are some of the common problems. The confinement period has the objective of strengthening the mother’s body to its original health or even better, as well as to restore the uterus back to the original size.
