It's not easy to get conf lady now since it's dragon year. I heard the usual rate now is above 2600.
I heard thomson medical has conf ladies. you can try, ESP if you are pro breast feeding.
I did engage and wld engage. Mine was 2000, thru agent. Kind hearted auntie, but very superstitious, and loud. Cooks good food. The cost of food and herbs is not cheap, but all depends on Yr budget. Got budget, eat better fish better meat better herbs, no budget, normal fish and meat. you can let the aunty know.
I think really good to have conf lady, ordering conf food is also expensive and may not cater to your preferences. And also, bathing the baby. you can't touch water, so need someone to help. It's high stress period due to high learning curve and transition, then at night you n your husband cannot sleep well. Imagine have to change diaper, bathe, feed baby, plus rest? Just feeding is very tough already!
