Well, like everything else, there are advantages and disadvantages of having a pui yit or the novelty of going to a special care centre. For those more independent and hands-on mothers, like my wife during her time, having a pui yit is not only unnecessary, but a hassle because of having to look after her needs as well! When she had her first baby in Leeds, by caesarian, she was already taking the baby to the market just after two weeks of confinement! In case, anyone says she did that because it was more difficult and expensive in UK to have a pui yit, it was partially true, because when in Malaysia, she did not have pui yit too!
As for meeting a need, now there is even a day care centre for husbands while wives do their shopping!
It has yet to catch on in Malaysia, probably husbands here are likely to put up with the hours of shopping with their wives!
