Most people know there are 3 trimesters in pregnancy. But for the new mother (and father), there is a period of time right after birth where they are welcoming motherhood.

And more importantly for your newborn to adjust to life outside of the womb. These weeks following birth are called the 4th trimester. 

So the first 12 weeks with your newborn is the time where you’re bonding with your baby.

The focus is all about that new bundle of joy. But it can also be a challenging and tiring time.

Which is why the 4th trimester is all about nurturing the mother on a physical and emotional level.

So she can cope with the new changes in her life.

Chinese culture has been practicing this “4th trimester” for thousands of years.

It is known as 坐月子 (zuo yue zi) or literally translated to “Sitting The Month/Moon”.

This “sitting period” incorporates Chinese medicine principles. With aims to nourish the body in the postpartum period.

Join our panel of Chinese medicine experts for a discussion on the 4th trimester on Friday 29th October at 3PM (AEST). This is a free event. Register below.
