Post Natal Care And The Nigerian Cold Water Story

Aunty Eya&my fellow WC readers gud evening o! Please I wld like to know the reason behind why it is compulsory in Nigeria to stay away frm anything cold. 

You are being advised by our mothers, friends & family to stick to only hot/warm water. Some even go as far as telling u that it congeals d blood thereby leading to the death of d person. 

Whilst abroad, you are allowed to
drink even ice water while in labour & after childbirth. I don't get d myth behind the "hot water".

 I just gave birth 2wks ago & I take normal bottled water, not hot/cold.  Please docs, gynecologists in the building, I need your expert opinion on this issue. Is it really true that drinking cold water can lead to maternal death after childbirth?? 

*confused* Aunty Eya please remove my contact.. Tnk u

      My wife gets wet easily and heavily, we have been married for five months, but I don't look forward to lovemaking though I have high libido, but that tightness is not there. When I penetrate her without foreplay, she will be very tight but when she is wet, I slip out and cannot feel her please what do we do to reduce the wet ness? Thanks

      Had she had a baby before?? As dis cld b 1 of d reasons 4 ur trbls. Try changing sex styles. Go with Doggy style,sex lyin on d side,missionary with her legs up&slightly bent towards her face,reverse cowgirl. Den tell her to practice kegal exercises as many tyms as possible as dis wld help strengthen her pelvic muscles thereby makn her vagina tighter(check google for more info on kegal exercise) she also cn try sitn on a bucket of hot water,let d vapour get in2 her vagina while she practises kegal exercise as d steam goes in. Or u cld take her to go see a gynaecologist for vagina tightening. Hope dis helps...

  2. I was told the same thing, even in the hospitals they tell you to stick to hot liquid.. Well, I really want to lose my belly fat and have stuck to the warning. I don't know if it's what is working but the belly is going down so I don't want to stop yet, lol
    Congrats on your bundle of joy, mine came on the 4th

    I had my baby abroad and i chewd ice thru out labour, after labour i drank cold things cos hold down warm things.
    My tummy went down in less than a month.
    I was bck to my post baby body in 2 mths.
    What my doc warned againt was eating right nd breast feeding.
    I didnt tie my tommy nd there was no 1 to make pepper soup or d like for me for d first wk until my mum came.
    But then bodies are different and u can err on d side of caution.

  5. Its just the belief that hot things help dissolve blood clots but they forget that before the liquid can get down there, it wouldn't be hot either.
    However, the water pressing and sitz bath is very necessary especially if your tummy was not properly evacuated of blood after fetus expulsion

    Okay this is coming late but I just found this site...

    I found out (for the 3rd time, i've forgiven 2 already) that dear hubby is having an affair and he's denying still even when the facts are bare. I think he needs to deal with the deep issues of his life that compel him to live a double life: he's a great person to everyone; is a leader in church, etc but he's a monster to his wife: doesn't help around d house, nags and is downright unappreciative, squanders family funds, never apologises and insists he must never be questioned about his decisions.Now, it is another woman. He says he wouldn't talk about it until he's ready.
    I WAS CHECKING OLD POST ON WC AND I SAW THIS COMMENT,IT WAS SENT IN AUG 22,2013..
    MAKE UNA ADVISE THIS WOMAN BIKO.

    I want out. A separation for 6 months maybe. I have 2 kids, a toddler and a 5-month old, so I know it's a difficult situation but I'd do anything to keep my sanity, self esteem and make Heaven. This way, I sure wont. I am trying to find Godly advice before doing anything and that's why I came here. Your inputs would be deeply appreciated.

      So after u leave for 6months,wat follows next?? U'l go bk home to him?? What if 1 of his mistresses has taken over ur home? Wat if 1 of them is d reason behind his behaviour?My dear I'd advice u go to ur pastor&talk to him abt it or seek a marriage counsellor or beta still seek d face of God. There's always a reason 4 such kind of behaviour. R u prayerful?? Hw often to u pray&go to church?? Nw is d tym 4 u to seek God&not man!

      You are lying. Biko, who are you trying to impress here. Whose tummy gets flat IMMEDIATELY After giving birth. Mtcheeew. People just tell unnecessary lies. Offer reasonable advice and if you have none, just don't comment.

    I wish I had a tummy like that. I do everything from hot water sitz to girdle wearing, and hot water compress so much so my tummy is burnt black but still I look 3 months pregnant 3 weeks after delivery.
