Haiti Pregnancy - Do Haitian women in the Diaspora take their POT bath after doing into labor?

In Haiti, after a women goes in to labor, she takes this HOT bath called "Bain POT". It's supposed to be GOOD for you... But do Haitian women in the Diaspora do the same?

Pregnant Woman

You do know that this is don't you? Haitian women boil a whole bunch of leaves after they have a baby, then they place mix in a bucket with steam coming out of it and they sit on it...

OUCH!

They swear it's good for you but I don't see doctors in the united states recommending it...

I wonder if Haitian women in the Diaspora do that as well...

If you are a Haitian woman and you don't know what I am talking about, ask your mother from Haiti, she knows what I am talking about.

What do you think about that?
