Hi, currently my CL is still working for me and i would like to recommend her. she's a modern CL. unlikes others will keeps nagging at you, this cannot that cannot.. but of coz she will advice you.. not to and how to. She handle well with baby. MASSAGE is GOOD TOO!! and most importantly SHE COOK REAL WELL!!!!
Her SG Hp 8300 4910 My 016 9857034
Many of her previous mummy recommended her too Please refer to Need recommendation for good Confinement Lady
BTW I always heard complain from my friend that they had enganged experience confinement lady to their house (some even recommend by the mummy in this forum) to do confinment for them.
From the begining the CF auntie is ok but after engang for around 2week, found out the CF auntie is lazy, not really know how to cook different CF foods, not really knows how to cook tonic soup, not really know how to take care of baby....:-(
(some even give excuse to go back M'sia to chop passport & never come back).. But we still cannot ask them to go & still need to endure till 28days..
That why I been helping my friend to ask around for CF autie who willing to work short terms...(at least if she not good we can dont continue her after 2 week later)
Finally let me found a more than 10yrs experience S'porean non stay CF lady who offer 2week services...my friend had try her service & found out her cooking is very nice & delicious. My friend say she finish every meal she cook & not even 1 single rice left...(especially her "ZHU JIAO CHU"....hahaha
Any mummy want her contact for trying her service call hp:98476976...
Good day to all,
I'm recommending my aunty, MeiMei from Malaysia
- More than 20 years experience
- Patient with babies
- Able to stay up at night to take care of babies
- Cook delicious food
- Pleasant character
- Fantastic reviews from previous employers
If interested, please call Adrian @ 91117357, or my aunty, Meimei @ 0207-6969406 (Chinese speaking)
I am thinking of engaging PEM too, possible to recommend me your nanny from PEM before?
Hi! I have read in this forum about auntie Meiling, and I am engaging her. I have read about positive feedback about her in other forum too. At the same time, there are other negative feedback about auntie Meiling too. dont know if she is the same person cos Meiling is a common name. Too bad when they post negative feedback, they did not put down the telephone number.
I thought i share this ...
I just finished my confiment and had a very good confirment lady (Aunty Yue Fen).
I even extended her for 2 more weeks.
This is my second child, my first child i engaged a CFL as well but it was a terrible experience. Hence, this time i was also skeptical when i was recommended to this CF aunty.
So i was extremely glad that i had this aunty this time round.
She has many years of experience, very patient and loving with my daughter. First few days she is with me, she takes the time to observe my daughter to see how she can best take care of her, and she learns very fast. She cooks very yummy food (my first confirment i had horrible food and i didnt know confirment food can actually taste nice ...) and most important my family all like her very much and she is hygenic!
She has a very pleasent character, very helpful and responsible. when looking after baby, she doesnt on her hp or pick her hp so that she wont be distracted.
If any one is interested you can contact her at 65 8375 6048 (SG) or her house at 0207-6522606 (MSA). (but as i say if she is looking after baby her hp might be off or she doesnt pick up, so you might want to leave a message instead so that she can revert)
you may call my this non stay s'pore confinement lady.
She had more than 10yrs experience, around 50++, she honest, clean, flexible & her cooking is delicious..... (she able to cook different tonic soup, "zhu jiao chu" & different CF dishes within 28days.)
her contact is hp: 98476976.
Are you still active on MummySG?
Am interested to contact your recommended CL, what's her name pls? =)
May i also ask if this CL is knowledgeable about breastfeeding? Some of my friends share that some CL may be good in caring for baby, cooking confinement food, etc but can't help much when it comes to breastfeeding problems, eg. baby has difficulty latching on, etc... Would you mind sharing pls?
Many thanks! God bless!
Am currently into my 3rd week of confinement and thought i'd thank my confinement lady for her help so far by recommending her services. She's called Aunty Bi Ai from Malaysia. Communicates mostly in Mandarin, Teochew or Cantonese. While she can understand English, she isn't too fluent in it.
The pertinent points below:
1. Supportive of breastfeeding. Willing to bring me baby every 3 hours, even at night if i ask for her. Helps with feeding baby formula milk as supplement after that.
2. Handles baby lovingly, gently and patiently. Can see that baby feels secure when she handles her. Sometimes, she has to carry baby till 3+am when baby is fretful! No complaints!
3. Cooks for my family of 5, lunch and dinner. Granted she doesn't do much housework like mopping of floor in baby room as we have a domestic helper. But it does show that she's a give and take person, which is quite important for me! I'd not want to have a confinement lady who's very calculative!
4. While she has her own practices, she is willing to adapt to my request for certain things (which may not be the best afterall since it's mostly textbook teachings from Thomson Medical Center which can't be applied wholesale).
5. I have several dogs at home - she's not one who's afraid of them and will sometimes play with them. This may be helpful to dog owners?
No nonsense of getting to work during her first day before receiving an ang pao etc. Neither did she make unreasonable requests like having to charge extra for climbing up and down the stairs many many times a day, an extra fee i was quoted by some CLs when they heard it's a double storey place!
As she's going to be with me till 28 Oct, feel free to PM me or drop me an email at email@example.com if you'd like to speak with her/meet up with her before that.
And no, i am certainly not earning any commission from this! Just thought potential mummies might find it helpful to have one more reference.
i am interested to get in touch with your confinement lady. May i also know what are her charges like for 28 day stay-in and whether she knows how to cook confinement food for recovering mum?
Any chance of having a chat or meet up with her? I stay in Tampines but can arrange to meet up near your place (Bishan junction 8) so won't take up too much of her time away from you. =) My EDD is next year Feb.
Pls PM me or email me at trustHislove@gmail.com
Thanks so much! God bless!

My CL is very nice and friendly too. I enjoy very much having her here and cried when she has to leave... She is willing to follow instructions(very important). Beside taking care of my baby, she cooks 3 meals a day, perpare herbal drink, and boil chicken essence at night. She trains my maid too. I learned lots of things from her. And she is modern thinking. I personally think another important thing in hiring a CL, is mutual trust and a lot of communications. Her name is Lai Chen. She works for gpls confinement agency.
Can call and check whether she is available.

Thanks for recommending your confinement ladies. In the end i decided to engage one from an agency (PEM) cos my EDD very near CNY, didn't want the anxiety of last min CL decide to back out due to the festive season in case baby arrives early. So far felt their service very professional. =)
