|Research on Traditional Postpartum Practices
A number of researchers assume that these practices including the extended rest period may help protect new mothers against postpartum depression. A research study in China showed that only 5.5% of new Chinese mothers were depressed at six weeks after childbirth compared to 10 to 15% among new mothers in Western society.
Other research studies have shown benefits from taking time to rest at home in some kind of seclusion. Studies with groups of Chinese and Malaysian mothers and new moms in Taiwan showed less postpartum depression among those mothers who followed the traditional practices of staying in for a period of time. This does not mean resting in isolation, but limiting outside activities and relaxing at home. It also means following the prescribed postpartum diet, receiving massages, staying warm, and drinking teas in order to rest, recover, and rejuvenate.
