We Believe Every Mother Deserves A Peaceful & Restful Confinement Period
Confinement nanny is someone who can provide assurance, extra help and care to mothers and babies during the postpartum period. NannySOS confinement nanny agency ( MOM Licence 13C6350) provides stay in nanny and part time confinement lady in Singapore for both mother and baby who deserves to be well rested. The nannies can be hired from 14 days up to maximum of 16 weeks commencing from child’s birthday. Our agency provides chinese and english speaking confinement nannies with at least 3 years experience for locals and expats. We believe every postnatal woman deserves a good confinement period with nutritious confinement food to rejuvenate and regain her energy under the attentive care of a experienced confinement nanny.
You can also find confinement lady by yourself without engaging the services of Singapore confinement nanny agency for recommendation. However, do make sure her confinement nanny work permit is applied if she is from Malaysia. This is a requirement from Ministry of Manpower (MOM) which is applicable to part time or day time confinement nanny as well.
Is Postnatal Confinement Necessary?
Confinement after childbirth is very crucial to all mothers. It has been many tiring days and sleepless nights after enduring 9 months of pregnancy along with suffering the pain of giving birth. It is very important for women after childbirth to receive continuous love from her loved ones. Postnatal confinement is as important as pre natal as it is a critical period to restore mother’s health and balance. Don’t be surprised some ailments that you used to experience before pregnancy no longer occur as the body is “reset” and readjusting to the new change.
Therefore, mothers should take advantage of this stage. Confine yourself at home and get yourself your well deserved rest after going through the labour and delivery. Refrain yourself from heavy household chores, sea breeze, reading emails from work or working from home if possible. Stay hydrated with warm water and especially Longan and Red Date tea which is beneficial for blood circulation and sleep. A post natal woman should never take her confinement period too lightly as it can either benefit or affect her health in the long run, so make use of this chance and don’t take the risk.
First Time Parents
New mummies are highly encouraged to hire Singapore or Malaysian confinement nannies for your first baby. If your parents or in-laws are able to help take care of the newborn baby, you can also consider confinement food catering or tingkat delivery to save on cost. Besides the lack of experience in responding to the cries of your baby or how to bathe them, first time parents need to know that new born babies tend not to sleep at the timing you wanted them to. You will get to experience the happiness and tiredness as well with many days deprived of sleep. The baby will wake up at odd timing or wee hours which you have to tend to their cries if you did not engage the service of a confinement lady. However, please do your due diligence research as you will be living with or where mother and child is being taken care of by a stranger.
