When it comes to giving birth, the recovery period in a hospital or a clinic differs in every part of the world. In the UK, you might be out in a matter of hours, and even then, you'd be lucky if you a cup of tea and some crumpets. One woman, who gave birth at a clinic in Japan, was treated like a queen. She stayed in the clinic recovering for 4 days, which is the standard in Japan, and the nurses looked after the baby, gave her some amazing advice, and fed her the best food to aid in her recovery.
Most people cringe when they think of hospital food, which is usually pretty yucky.
But this woman, who had a standard pregnancy, went on Reddit and claimed that she was fed omuraisu, macaroni salad, chicken soup, squid rings, fruit, and green tea to regain her strength.
Some hospitals will kick a mother out after a few hours to make room for another patient.
But this new mother was treated to salmon with mushroom sauce, soba noodles, rice, eggplant and beef, broccoli, hijiki salad. We have to say, we’re a little envious, and hungry.
This mom wasn't wined but she was certainly dined after giving birth.
Then again, creating life is no easy task, and as beautiful as the miracle of life is, one can certainly use a nice meal like sea bream, pasta salad, chicken meatballs, pickled daikon, rice, miso soup, chawan mushi, and green tea.
Aside from food, the mom got plenty of advice on how to look after her newborn.
This is like going to lamasse with the only differences being that you already have a kid and you’re getting great food like chicken fingers with shredded cabbage salad, bitter melon stir fry, agedashi tofu, carrot salad, rice, and miso soup.
Did you get stale brown bread and a butter sachet and marmalade after you give birth?
Come to Japan the next time you’re ready to give birth and you could enjoy some mackerel, konbu salad, natto, spinach salad, miso soup, rice, milk, and green tea.
