No matter which local community you belong to, we’ve all heard how important it is for moms to have their confinement period after childbirth. Whether they are confinement myths or not, there are certainly tons of restrictions such as no washing of hair, isolation in the bedroom etc. It is a standard practice to engage a confinement nanny that can help to prepare confinement meals packed with Traditional Chinese Herbs (TCM) or tonics and look after the newborn if family members or relatives are unable to look after the mom. 

Confinement nannies are usually recommended via word-of-mouth, or engaged via a confinement nanny agency. The latter would be less of a hassle as they have vetted the profile of the nanny before recruiting them, and legal documents like work permit (if they are from Malaysia) are also taken care of by the agency.

If you’re uncomfortable with the thought of having a stranger staying overnight at your house, you can engage a part-time nanny that works office hours. However, parents will certainly not be comfortable at the thought of leaving their newborn to a complete stranger to look after or just blindly trust a confinement nanny agency to choose a suitable nanny.  

Don’t worry, we’ve done the homework for you. Check out the list below for 5 recommended confinement nannies in Singapore!
