In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) & Ayurveda, this period is considered critical for postpartum recovery and is believed to have a significant impact on the mother's long-term health.

During "the first 40 days" the mother is encouraged to rest, receive special care and follow specific dietary and lifestyle practices to support her physical healing, restore "Qi" balance, and strengthen her body after childbirth. The focus is on providing the mother with a supportive and nurturing environment to ensure a smooth transition into motherhood and promote overall well-being.

Beyond "the first forty days" the postpartum period can last for several weeks to several months. This is because it is believed a considerable amount of "Qi" (vital energy) is expended during childbirth and pregnancy and can lead to some depletion of the mother's "Qi" reserves. To support recovery and replenish what has been lost, TCM emphasises the importance of on-going dietary adjustments, restorative practices, and the use of herbs, acupuncture and vitally: warmth.
