坐月常識Q&A – 生活篇

Q:坐月不能開冷氣嗎?
A:香港夏天炎熱又潮濕,產婦如果盲目跟從傳統坐月方法,不吹冷氣以致大汗淋漓會引起衛生問題,室內宜溫度舒適及空氣流通,只要將冷氣溫度調至24至26度,風口不會直吹產婦及嬰兒便可。

Q:坐月為甚麼不能碰「生水」?
A:老一輩認為產婦接觸生水,寒氣會進入身體,容易造成身體畏寒、腰背痠痛等病症,現代人可以調校暖水使用,洗手後立即抹乾便可。

Q:可以趁坐月時減肥嗎?
A:生產後不宜立即減肥,因為身體需要時間復原,胡亂節食可能會出現寒凝血滯、惡露未能排淨、或引寒氣入內而致風寒感冒、甚至眩暈等不適症狀,建議產後至少六個月後才開始減肥,適量進食健脾補氣袪濕的食材調理,配合運動及飲食健康瘦身。

Q:坐月時外出要由頭包到腳嗎?
A:坐月不鼓勵產婦外出,是因為要爭取時間休息,如果無可避免要外出例如到健康院覆診,只要注意保暖,不要被風直吹便可,因為中醫理論認為「風乃百病之長」,如果氣血虛弱的產婦著涼,會出現「月內風」症狀如頭暈、風寒、手腳冰冷等,所以預計到室內地方有冷氣就多帶件連帽外套吧。

Q:如果流產了也需要坐月嗎?
A:無論是自然還是人工流產,小產婦也宜坐小月讓身體慢慢復原,坐小月的飲食調補及生活起居注意事項基本上與坐月相若,應以平補方式調理脾胃、活血祛瘀、排清惡露,隨後配合體質,滋陰養血、強腰補腎,亦可趁坐小月期間疏導情緒,收拾心情。

Confinement Month Q&A – lifestyle edition

Q:Can we use the air-conditioner during confinement?
A: The Hong Kong summer is warm and humid. New moms, who abide by the traditional confinement practices blindly, tend to avoid using the air-conditioner. They inevitably sweat a lot, and this causes poor hygiene. To ensure the enclosed space is comfortable and has good air ventilation, adjust the temperature of the air-conditioner to 24-26 degree Celsius. It is also important to make sure the cool air does not blow directly at the moms and the babies.

Q:Why should moms avoid touching water that is not boiled during confinement?
A: The older generation believes that once moms come into contact with unboiled water during confinement, the cold air would invade the body easily, causing them to suffer from aversion to cold and backache. It is actually fine to clean the body with warm water but make sure we wipe it dry after that.

Q:Can we take this opportunity to lose weight?
A: It is best not to lose weight after giving birth because the body needs time to recuperate. Improper diets can cause stagnation of the blood due to coldness in the body and lochia discharge to retain in the body.

Not having proper diets can also lead to attack from cold air pathogens and in turn cause new moms to catch a flu and cold or experience dizziness. You should only start your weight loss regime about six months later after delivery.

Do consume an appropriate quantity of ingredients that can strengthen the spleen, nourish the qi, and eliminate dampness from the body. You should also exercise regularly to shed some pounds in a healthier manner.

Q:Should we cover ourselves up when we decide to go out during confinement?
A: Women who are still in confinement should stay home and rest as much as possible, but if there is a need to go out, they must keep themselves warm and avoid being exposed to wind and chill.

According to Chinese Medicine theories, wind pathogen is the catalyst of many illnesses. Since moms during confinement are already have weak qi and blood, they may experience the symptoms of ‘yue nei feng’ in Mandarin (literally means ‘wind during confinement’) such as dizziness, common cold, and cold limbs. So put on a sweater or bring along an extra hoodie if the place you are travelling to is air-conditioned.

Q:Do we have to go through confinement after an abortion or miscarriage?
A: Be it abortion or miscarriage, going through confinement is necessary to help the body recuperate. Just like new moms after childbirth, it is important to eat and stay healthy.

Nourish the body to improve the functions of the spleen and stomach, invigorate the blood and clear blood stasis, and clear the lochia discharge from the body. Take this opportunity to replenish the yin and nourish the blood, strengthen lower back and nourish the kidneys, and above all, soothe your emotions accordingly.
