Facing a high-risk pregnancy and cervical incompetence, 40-year-old Taiwanese artiste Vivian Hsu’s journey to parenthood was unimaginably tough.
Bedridden for nearly 150 days, Vivian had to use a urinary catheter and could not take showers to wash herself.
Nonetheless, with the support of family, friends, and fans, the actress and singer stayed strong and often shared her feelings and daily thoughts with her fans.
Now, nearly a month after Dalton’s birth, Vivian announced that she is finally allowed to soak herself in a well-deserved hot bath.
She shared pictures of what she was using in her bath, and wrote, “From pregnancy to the first month of postpartum, I can finally do it on day 162. I am taking a bath!
"Lao Chiang and Angel Sharon gave me a bag of herbs and I cooked it for about 1.5 hours. My heart is sparkling with tears. I am so touched!”
Fans expressed their happiness for Vivian, and joked, “Don’t worry! Even if you don’t wash, you’ll still smell great!” Vivian replied, “Really! It’s sour!”.
