Just wondering, how come the angmos whom did not avoid such taboos give birth to healthy babies as well? Also, we chinese whom follow strictly on the taboos, doesn't seems to be healthier (both mothers and babies) compared to other races.. So is all the taboos neccessary to follow?
My humble two cents worth, just follow those which make sense such as no raw food and caffine which is no good for babies development. Those 'cool or not cool' stuffs, just take it with a pinch of salt
but coz pearl powder is cooling, cannot take too early in the pregnancy n cannot take too much also..
n occasional bottled bird's nest..
