“Twenty weeks after pregnancy, my baby suddenly had no heartbeat so I had induced labour. After the loss, I am still suffering from symptoms such as uterine contraction and lochia. What am I doing wrong?”
CheckCheckCin: The pain of losing a child cannot be expressed with words. Time will heal the pain. Whether it is natural or artificial abortion, it has a certain level of damage to the body of women, and the mind and body needs to be properly regulated. The period after the loss is called a small confinement month. The diet adjustments and daily living notes of it are basically the same as a full confinement month. It is not appropriate to have overly nourishing food such as pilose antler, ginseng, chicken wine that are warm in nature immediately after the loss. Women should mildly replenish their bodies by nourishing the spleen and stomach, activating blood and relieve stasis and clearing lochia. Then nourish yin and blood, strengthen lower back and kidney according your body condition. Women should try to relieve their emotions. They should not bury their emotions, but also tell their loved ones about their feelings. There are many reasons for such loss, and try not to be obsessed with “why” or blame yourself. Sorrow may not subside easily, learn to coexist with it, and put the love of the little angel in the heart.
