Unfortunately, it is an old myth that simply refuses to go away. A woman should not be confined to ...

For a month? Well well she has gone too far..

Resting to long with make the muscle atrophy. Bad for the bones as well. Resting as long as it takes for the wounds to heal is optimal. As long as there is light activity during the healing process

I agree that the woman took zuoyuezi too literally. There are some of the taboos which I find ridiculous and crazy such as no shower and brush teeth and that doesn't mean you have to abide them all. Well, we have to adapt traditions to suit modern conditions and not follow them blindly.

The image of the Duchess of Cambridge showing off her baby boy to the public has shocked many Chinese people, and there is a huge media coverage about her relaxed, radiant appearance and her freedom to walk about. In this news report from Taiwan, the subtitle reads: “No need for postnatal confinement?! Kate showed her face just one day after giving birth.” The newsreader commented, “A lot of people are so confused now. They think it is strange. How could Kate dare to go outdoor, expose herself to the wind, and meet so many people? Didn’t she need to be confined?”

Do western women observe confinement?
