I felt there was nothing more to write about period myths until I came across this myth recently. A lady told me that her grand mom does not allow her to touch babies in their house when she is menstruating which sounds extremely stupid, to be blunt.
- Don’t all women bleed after giving birth to a child? Is it not almost like a period but with a slightly different composition? So, should mothers who gave birth not hold or touch their babies?
- What about mothers with babies who are having periods. Do they automatically stop touching their babies or breast feeding them?
- Where do they think is the foetus during the pregnancy? Floating in a sea of nectar? Of course, surrounded by such uterine lining which is composed of period blood kind of things and deriving its nourishment from the umbilical cord.
