Being in Asian country remind me of a beauty products, like pregnancy set. There are various types of pregnancy set such as Vitamins,
Before we go deep into this topic, what is pregnancy set is all about? I believe there is not so much information regarding pregnancy set, in the western world, nutrition after pregnancy is what matters.
Nutrition and pregnancy refers to the nutrient intake, and dietary planning that is undertaken before, during and after pregnancy. Nutrition of the fetus begins at conception. For this reason, the nutrition of the mother is important from before conception (probably several months before) as well as throughout pregnancy and breast feeding. An ever-increasing number of studies have shown that the nutrition of the mother will have an effect on the child, up to and including the risk for cancer, cardiovascular disease, hypertension and diabetes throughout life.
An inadequate or excessive amount of some nutrients may cause malformations or medical problems in the fetus, and neurological disorders and handicaps are a risk that is run by mothers who are malnourished. 23.8% of babies worldwide are estimated to be born with lower than optimal weights at birth due to lack of proper nutrition.Personal habits such as smoking, alcohol, caffeine, using certain medications and street drugs can negatively and irreversibly affect the development of the baby, which happens in the early stages of pregnancy.

In the asian country like Indonesia and Malaysia especially, after pregnancy diet is important to help faster the recovery after giving birth, to regain back the body shape and also as a milk booster. More importantly is their tradition. Example of the pregnancy set is Anugerah pregnancy Set and Dherbs pregnancy set.
For asian, it is important to have this pregnancy set as their tradition and for the western culture, it is completely unheard of. Well…. being a different is what matters after all.
Want for more info, I will go in depth regarding this matter. It is best to know the other people culture and it is interesting to do so.
