In Singapore, the confinement herbal package is intended to condition and nurture the mother’s reproductive system and health following childbirth. Typically, the confinement herbal package contains prepackaged confinement herbs for daily tonic soup, red dates tea, and bath. The herbal bath for confinement and red dates tea are essential products for your confinement herbs list. As TCM herbs for each day’s confinement soup are simply packaged into 28 packets, there is less preparation labour for the confinement nanny or family. For making confinement meals, just follow the soup menu and preparation instructions included in the TCM herbal box. You no longer need to worry about soup recipes, the number of herbs necessary, or the need to purchase additional herbs. The problem of running out of herbs has been significantly reduced.
Why are confinement soup and beverages essential?
Herbs are rarely used alone in TCM but rather as part of a mixture of many active substances. Herbs and their permutations, which are often recommended as soups, are limitless and vary across TCM practitioners. When nursing depletes a mother’s energy and leaves her dehydrated, fatigued, and thirsty, a confinement drink and herbal soup might help restore water loss. In addition to balancing Yin and Yang and restoring Qi, the herbal soup makes it simpler for the body to absorb the necessary nutrients compared to solid meals.
How Can TCM Herbs Help?
There are four distinct stages throughout the postpartum period for which the soup is mainly made to fulfil the mother’s nutritional needs. According to research and reviews of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the confinement diet should be modified at each stage to restore the mother’s health during the confinement month. After childbirth, a woman is at her weakest, and her body is prone to cold and chills. Thus, nourishing confinement food is vital. These are some of the soups and herbal combos that moms are usually advised to consume.

Instead of water, moms should consume red date tea, dried longan tea, or roasted rice tea. Consuming excessive plain water during the postnatal period might disrupt the metabolism, causing water retention and visceroptosis, and may eventually lead to rheumatism, neuralgia, and other women’s disorders. It can be detrimental to a woman’s general well-being and health if she does not receive sufficient post-natal or medical care after childbirth, along with a nutritious diet for nursing and restoring the uterus to its natural size. By providing moms with healthy confinement soup and Chinese herbs, the confinement package offers the most effective natural cures for restoring their health.
