Synopsis: Should new mothers shower or drink tap water during confinement? Can they also exercise during this period? An app developed by a group of NP students from the Diploma in Chinese Media & Communication aims to debunk myths related to the confinement period. Yang Jielin, one of the group members, said: “I’ve always liked children and have been interested in obstetrics and gynaecology. As I’m studying a media-related course, I learnt that media can play a very important role in disseminating the correct information. The group of students worked with Madam Partum to develop the app.
