Years ago, when I first gave birth, I remember being so physically drained that I did not even have the energy to sit up, let alone take care of my baby! I was totally unprepared for my body’s refusal to co-operate with my demands.
My mum and relatives advised me to follow some traditional Indian confinement practices, which they said would help in the uterus getting back to shape and aid in my overall well being, plus provide ample milk for my baby.
Here are some Indian confinement practices that I found helpful. I have listed down inputs from some of my friends as well!
