The arrival of a newborn is one of the greatest miracles of life, as it unveils a whole new world of joy and discovery. Just as every pregnancy is different, each baby is unique in personality and needs. For the mother, the time from delivery to the first crucial weeks is filled not only with the need to recover and regain physical and mental strength, but with the need to connect with the baby and adapt to a new way of life. Nothing quite prepares a woman for this profoundly beautiful, yet formidably life changing experience.
In Japanese, ‘KAI’ symbolises the restoration and recovery that mothers need most after giving birth. In Chinese, “凯” represents triumph, as child birthing is one of the most victorious moments in a lifetime. KAI embraces ‘omotenashi’, the Japanese concept of genuine, wholehearted hospitality; paying attention to the smallest of details and anticipating every need of the guest to deliver an unforgettable experience, and having a guest-oriented, personalised approach that tailors arrangements to the needs and preferences of each mother and baby.
What is Postpartum Confinement?
Postpartum confinement, a traditional postnatal practice following childbirth, is aimed at helping mothers to recover and recuperate from the rigour of pregnancy and childbirth. Those who follow these customs typically begin immediately after childbirth, and the confinement lasts for a culturally variable length from 28 to 42 days. This period of recovery is important for mothers to heal as well as to care and bond with their newborns.
At KAI SUITES, we take both a modern and traditional approach to formulate and resolve each situation differently for mothers and babies, hence ensuring proper and sufficient recovery for mothers and healthy growth and development for babies. In addition to this, both mothers and fathers will get the right education and guidance on how to take care of babies and their development from our team of experts in many disciplines.
