Energy Boosting Secrets for Tired Moms
Childbirth can take a significant toll on mothers as it drains energy (qi) and blood which weakens the body, leading them to feel tired and weak. On top of that, there is the added stress and sleep deprivation when caring for your newborn. All these may cause postpartum fatigue, which is a very common occurrence among new mothers as they experience excessive tiredness that can last for months. Postpartum fatigue could also affect breast milk supply, so it is important to recognise the signs and learn how to cope with these strategies.
Prioritize Protein as your Essential Nutrient
Protein is one of the essential nutrients required for postpartum mums to replenish blood loss during childbirth. It also acts as the building blocks of the body to support a healthy immune system. Proteins are made up of amino acids that are categorized into 2 groups – essential and non-essential. Essential amino acids cannot be produced by the body and can only be obtained through food like meat, eggs, and soy.
Tonify with Traditional Tonics
In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), chicken essence is widely recognized for its ability to replenish the energy (qi) of the body, relieve fatigue and promote healing. Traditionally, the essence is extracted by double-boiling the chicken at high temperature for long hours, which is highly labour-intensive and time-consuming for a single bowl of chicken essence.
Refuel with the Energizing Goodness of Chicken Essence
Chicken essence is highly recommended for mothers due to its nourishing and energizing properties, and thanks to modern techniques, it no longer takes up to 8 hours of slow boiling in the kitchen. All it takes is 3 minutes of preparation and you have a golden bowl of aromatic chicken essence ready to drink!
Consuming chicken essence is especially beneficial for pre and postnatal mums as it:
Promotes postnatal milk secretion & enhances the quality of breastmilk
Speeds up wound recovery
Improves appetite of mummies with morning sickness
Enhances baby’s growth & development

The Perfect Formula

What You Don’t Know About Stretch Marks
Pregnancy & Baby
Yes, it’s pretty hard to avoid these pesky little sliver lines on our skin during pregnancy. Why do we get them, and can we do anything about it? Here are some facts you might not know about stretch marks.
They are really scars
It is actually a form of a scar that appears after the skin has grown rapidly – especially during pregnancy. When your skin undergoes a drastic change, it has trouble producing enough collagen and elastin and its tissues break up and form marks.
You don’t have to be overweight to get them
It’s a myth that only overweight people get stretch marks. Super slim and average sized women can still be affected. Even those that are active and exercise!
Some women are actually pretty lucky that they don’t get these birth marks – it’s probably genetic for them. If your mum got stretch marks from birth, hate to break it to you but, you’ll likely get it too.
They can look different on others
Each individual skin tone determines the extent of how your stretch mark will appear. On tanned or darker skins, the lines will be lighter than the surrounding skin, while for fair people, the marks will be red or pink. The colour can change overtime as well. They can then fade to silvery-white as your cells lose their pigment production.
They appear anywhere
They can turn up pretty much anywhere on the body, although, very unlikely on your face. They usually appear where fat is stored and where the biggest changes occurred. Most common areas are the tummy, breasts, butt, thighs, under and upper arms – with the belly and breasts being the most common during pregnancy.
Early prevention might help!
You can try and reduce the risk by moisturising with lotion every day, eat plenty of foods rich in vitamin C to boost skin repair and of course, make sure that you do not overeat and put on more weight than needed. It is generally recommended to start using lotion 12 weeks into pregnancy. But, no harm starting out even earlier than that! Just make sure the lotion is safe to use.
