Hi All Mummies to be,
I posted this before in the year 2011 mummy...
I just finished my confinement and thought i should share with you about the good confinement nanny that i engaged. The week before I went for labour, I am 71kg. Comparing to now, 59kg. I had lost 12 kg after giving birth, mostly thanks to my confinement nanny. Before pregnancy, my health condition was very poor. My face was often as pale as paper. After birth, with my confinement nanny's receipe, I feel more energetic and i can see my health gradually turning for the better than before.
People often say that pregnant mothers tend to drop loads of hair after birth, which is true. However, to help me, my confinement nanny put some herbs in my red date tea which I took for a week and it alleviated my condition! In fact, only few strands of hair drop per day when combing. Its unbelievable that just my red date tea alone have 8 different kind of herbs used...
Mine was natural birth but without any epidural neither nor any pain relieve except the laughing gas. Therefore, after birth, I can feel the extreme pain. In chinese medicine studies says, meals with chicken or egg are not allow during the first 12 days. However, I didnt know about this, hospital's confinement food comes with herbal chicken, I ate the whole bowl. Plus, my grandma boil black chicken, I drank all. I was in great pain the first week. Lucky my nanny know how to help me. She ask me wash with salt water. At first, I thought this confinement nanny is crazy, the wounds sure extremely painful to be contacted with salt water. I still challenge her on this. In the end, I followed her instruction because the pain was unbearable that I have to try. Surprisngly, the next day, the pain almost gone...
My baby has serious blocked nose and was not able to drink well. He wakes up hourly for milk, even at night! Thankfully, my confinement nanny was very patient, she wakes up to feed him without fail. I then brought my baby for a checkup during the 2nd week, the doctor said that by right my baby should be skinny due to his trouble of ingesting well. Surprisingly, he weighs 5.2kg that day (baby at birth weighs 3.6kg). With only 2 weeks plus, he grew so much. My nanny even volunteered to stay for another week after confinement (usually 28 days) to look after the baby with no extra charge!
She said being a confinement nanny is her interest and definitely not because of money. With more than 20 years experience, I trust her to taking care of me and my baby as well. For the one month, she really did a very great job. So mommies, to those who have not found a good, responsible confinement nanny for yourself and is still in dilemma, you may consider her. Message me for her contact details!
Cheers to motherhood!
Wow... such a good nanny.
I wanted to use yours...but had already confirmed with another. Not nice to turn her down last min.

When is your EDD? I heard she was saying her schedule book till May already. I can guarantee she is really good and you will not regret to engage her. The food she cook is not oily. She has chinese medicine knowledge and she asked you to get herbs/tonics that are relevant for her to boil for you as not all tonics are suitable, she only ask you to get those that she thinks you need. These are what she ask me to drink:
1) 3 times of herbs for clearing out the clogs blood
2) 1 box of su he want
3) D.O.M - I drank 6 times
4) zhen 7 days
5) Shi quan 7 days
6) And the precious red date tea with 8 kinds of herbs
7) Of cos some other herbs which I took once or twice that I can't rmb the name
I got my health back in 3 weeks and better than before I was pregnant.
Btw, she has 5 children who already 30yrs and above each. 1 of them was adopted cos ppl wants to abort, she ask to keep and raise her. Plus 4 grand children. So by looking at this, you can know she is really experience.
I didn't pay her deposit. Its verbal agreement. She didn't ask for what ang bao like others. Its whether your tradition in giving or not. I pack $28 ang bao when she come. Regret not giving her more cos she is really good. Most importantly, she gives you precious tips how to take good care of the baby yourself till baby 1st year of age. :-)
From what I see, she's really good. Hope that the one that i'm hiring, is good as well. currently, the CL is with my friend. She just gave birth last week. From what I know, she's good too. Good luck to me.
