I am writing to ask you two favors. First one is far more important than the second.
I am trying to figure out the most suitable long term contraceptive method that would work for me.
I have done my research and think may be an IUD will work for me. But I don’t know anyone who has done this procedure.
If you don’t mind, please ask your readers on problems they have encountered with contraception. I think this might help a lot of people.
Second one is more out of curiosity ..
My native place is Kerala and now I am working in the US. I gave birth to our first child a month ago. My parents and in laws have been behind me asking to apply all those Ayurvedic oils and massage. They want us to oil massage and bathe the baby too. We have said no to both saying we cannot do things to cool the body while it’s winter here..
So my question is- is this oil bathing and massaging common in India or is this only a Kerala speciality? Do other states have their own postpartum care methods?
IHM – feel free to say no to both my requests. As you can see these are not life threatening🙂
Thank you for your time!
