You can also find freelance confinement lady by yourself without engaging the services of confinement nanny agency in Singapore. However, do make sure confinement nanny work permit is applied if she is from Malaysia as required from Ministry of Manpower (MOM). Work permit approval for confinement nanny during Covid will be very limited. All Malaysian nannies who can enter Singapore must serve 14 day Stay Home Notice (SHN) at dedicated SHN facilities.

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. Traditional 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 body is “reset” and readjusting to new change.
Therefore, mothers should take advantage of this stage. Confine yourself at home. Get your well deserved rest after going through labour and delivery with experienced confinement nanny in Singapore who is around when baby sleep or awakes. Refrain from heavy household chores, sea breeze or working from home if possible. Stay hydrated with warm water, especially Longan and Red Date tea which is beneficial for blood circulation and sleep. Consider confinement herbal bath instead of cold or instant heat shower bath. You should never take confinement too lightly. It can either benefit or affect your health in the long run. Don’t take the risk!
First Time Parents
New mummies are highly encouraged to hire Singapore or Malaysian confinement nannies for your first baby with or without agency. Additional help or domestic helper is required if expecting twins. If your parents or in-laws can help take care of the newborn baby, you may 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 as well. You will get to experience the happiness and tiredness with days of deprived sleep. The baby will wake up at odd timing or wee hours which you have to tend to their cries or breastfeeding if you did not engage the service of a confinement lady. However, please do your due diligence research if you are not hiring through singapore confinement nanny agency as you will be living with or where mother and child is being taken care of by a stranger.

At least they are responsible for replacement or ensure a nanny will be there. To be frank, I was so worried NannySOS would any how find me a confinement nanny but it turns out better than i expected. Not only nanny Anne takes good care of my baby, she is patient, accommodating, cook well and gives great advice to us. Thank you for recommending such a good nanny for my first baby!
