Too long to stay at hospital after giving birth?

Giving birth is the hardest job for women.
In many countries, mothers check out of the hospital next day or in two days after delivery.

But mothers in Japan stay at hospital for 4-5days after giving birth for taking enough rest.
The postpartum period is considered as very important period in Japan.
What do they do at hospital for such a long time?
Mainly they take a rest, eat, sleep and breast feed a baby.
They also learn how to take care of a new born baby and yourself from a midwife or a doctor.


The doctors advise mothers not to do domestic duties too much for at least one month after checking out of the hospital.
