Maternity is one of the transition periods in our folk. It is believed that forty days after birth mother and child are susceptible to many harmful effects. ”The grave of the state remains open for forty days”. In order to protect against the “evil eye” or “eye” touch, the mother and the baby are attached with an amulet, the house is smoked and a bullet is put into the maternity. One of the worst effects of the evil eye is believed to be the escaping of maternal milk. It is a common belief that saying 'goodbye' by the mother who sent off to see the maternity would cause milk to escape. Before the food is brought to the maternity, the maternity must taste or eat. If this is not done, the mother's milk is believed to be cut. One of the issues carefully considered in the puerperium is that the mother and child should not be taken out of the house for forty days. It is also believed that two mothers who have given birth on the same day do not meet. If they meet, it is believed that their forties will be mixed and the maternity will be affected badly.
Albastasis is believed to be the greatest danger for the mother and child during the postpartum period. It is a belief that medicine has not developed as much as it is today. Failure to comply with the cleaning conditions after birth may result in infection to the postpartum and as a result, the temperature may rise to 40 degrees. She starts hallucinating because of high fever and she's delirious. This situation is called among the people 'flushes'. There are several applications referenced to prevent this. The most common practice is to have a red color on the maternity. This belief is related to the fact that the syrup and maternity sugar are red and the red ribbon is placed on the head of the maternity. In some areas, onions are hung on the bedside of the postpartum to prevent albastia. At the end of the fortune, the bulb crushes this bulb on the threshold of the door, thus preventing the harm and harm that may come home.
