Frequently Asked Questions
Confinement nannies take care of you and your newborn during the confinement period while you are recovering from childbirth, similar to a caretaker. They are normally hired from confinement nanny agencies like PEM Confinement Nanny Agency.
Services usually include day and night baby care, mother-in-confinement care (i.e. confinement diet planning and preparation of herbal bath water), and basic household chores.
Many parents book a nanny agency in Singapore, expecting the nanny to take care of only their newborn while disregarding the confinement part almost completely.
But confinement is a crucial period for a mother to recuperate and heal from childbirth. It is often hard for the mom to take care of herself while focusing on a newborn, especially new mothers!
With a professional confinement nanny, like one from PEM, both the mother’s well-being and the newborn’s needs will be well taken care of.
When getting your own confinement lady, one of the most important things to prepare is their own private room or a shared room without any male adults in the same room. This is where she can rest, sleep, and change in complete privacy.
For the first few days, fill your kitchen with groceries so your confinement lady can cook your daily confinement dishes. Your spouse can do this. After the nanny arrives, if you need help with grocery shopping for the upcoming weeks, our PEM nannies will be happy to help!
Depending on how strict you are with your household arrangement, you may want to discuss a routine schedule and prepare a list of dos and don’ts for her as well.
Aside from staying in a Singapore confinement center, many parents have considered getting a confinement nanny but still wonder whether it is necessary.
You may need one if you are a first-time parent and are not getting assistance from any family member or other helpers in the house, especially if your spouse will be going back to work soon.
Newborns will wake up every few hours throughout the night, so it is important to have someone around who can take away or, at least, share the role with you.
Depending on your needs, there are also parents who only engage daytime nanny Singapore service where the nanny doesn’t stay overnight in the house.
While the experience with a baby nanny or confinement nanny differs from one person to another, having an extra pair of helping hands around the house is most certainly advantageous! With a PEM nanny by your side, you can get ample rest even if you will not be accompanied by an experienced family member or helper throughout your confinement. For some mothers here, getting a baby nanny service is precisely what makes their confinement easy and smooth. One tip to help you find a suitable confinement nanny is by looking up confinement nanny review of a particular agency or nanny before you book.
Engaging a nanny to provide confinement care in Singapore will depend on whether you are going for a confinement nanny in Singapore from an agency or a freelancer, there are different ways you can approach them. While hiring a freelancer allows you to get to know them closely prior to working with them, engaging with an agency offers a more secure process.
For instance, if you’re hiring a freelance confinement nanny, you have to personally liaise with the nanny throughout the whole process – from checking her availability, handling paperwork of work permit application and insurance for nanny to arranging her transportation. Not to mention with the current pandemic, you’d also have to arrange health check (ART test kit) and SHN accomodation for your nanny, along with new precautionary measures to comply from time to time. On the contrary, a confinement nanny agency like PEM offers you hassle-free booking by taking care all of the above for you!
While there is no definite answer on which option is the best for you, as each family's needs are different, these are the benefits and assurance that you will get from booking your confinement nanny from a reputable agency like PEM:
- Professional training and certification
- Assurance of skills and experience
- Guaranteed arrival to work
- Insurance coverage for nanny
- Hassle-free work permit application
- Deposit safety and reassurance
- Year-round customer support
- Free replacements of nanny
This really depends on you. You can opt for your nanny to sleep in the same room as you and your baby or she can sleep alone in a different room.
Should you feel comfortable with your nanny, she could sleep with your baby in a different room so that you may sleep better on your own.
The confinement nanny price can greatly differ from one nanny service provider to another, as well as between hiring from an agency itself or getting a freelancer, and also whether you have any other special requirements. In general, it can cost from around S$4,000 and above to get a full-time confinement nanny for 28 days. Other costs that you may need to consider is the levy and also the work permit application fee. If you are getting one from an agency like PEM, everything will be handled for you so you can focus solely on recuperating, and we even offer up to two free nanny replacements to help you get the most suitable nanny.
You should not put off looking for a confinement nanny to the last minute, but instead, seek one out as early as possible. We suggest 6 to 7 months in advance as this will give every party involved sufficient time to get to know your preferences, for you to stipulate your requirements, and for us to arrange a suitable nanny for you.
There is no one right formula for this, but basically, what you would want to do is to decide first and foremost if you want to go with an agency or with a freelancer. Then from there, you can visit their website, call them up, or drop them an email to learn more about their various range of services and what they can offer you.
To become a Singapore nanny, you first have to equip yourself with sufficient knowledge and skills in newborn care. Even if you are a mother yourself, the way you practise things may not be preferred by other parents so it is important that you learn the professional way to do things, such as how to burp a baby. If you are considering becoming a confinement nanny, knowing the basics of confinement matters is crucial too, as you will also be taking care of the mother and not just the baby.
