Confinement Nanny Agencies in Singapore

There’s no doubt that childbirth takes its toll on the body. That is why new mums in Asia usually spend the month after the birth of their baby in postnatal confinement, with the time dedicated to allowing the mother to recover.

Many mums, particularly here in Singapore, make it a point to hire a confinement nanny to help out during this period. Confinement nannies tend to live in for 28 days and in that time, they take care of both mummy and newborn, making sure sure that both are well-fed, rested and properly looked after.

While there are those who go for nannies recommended by family or friends, others choose to head to a confinement agency to find a suitable hire. If you find yourself in need of a nanny in the near future and don’t know where to begin, here’s a list of confinement agencies in Singapore and what they have to offer.
