Basically what Eu Yan Seng did is the handpicked some of these soup packs that they feel appropriate at the different stage of the confinement period add it with postnantal supplement pills along with Red dates tea, repackage and name it “Postnantal Confinement Care” that you see below.
In the package, you will also find a 28-day nourishment plan which is a time table that guide you what to cook, eat and drink on each day. For example on Day 1, you are to take the So Hup pills and Dangshen red date tea and Day 3, you will need to cook the Sheng Hua soup.
The nourishment plan also provides some explanation on why these soups and pills need to be taken at different stage of the confinement period.
Cooking instruction can be found behind the package however we were disappointed to find out that not all packages come in cooking instruction in both mandarin and english. For example the following is available in both English and mandarin.
The following soup pack is only available in English.
If you are comparing this confinement packages against other soup packages from Hock Hua or Lao Ban Niang, you will be disappointed to find out that there isn’t daily soup in the post nantal care package by Eu Yan Sang. Eu Yan Sang makes this up by providing supplement pills such as So Hup pills and Gold Label Bak Foong Pill.
