Frequently Asked Questions

A confinement nanny is someone who takes 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 a confinement nanny agency, a confinement centre or from the many freelance nannies in Singapore. The nanny service Singapore parents engage usually includes services like day and night baby care, confinement care for the mother (i.e. confinement diet planning and cooking, preparation of herbal bath water, and herbal soups or beverages), and basic household chores.

No matter what kind of nanny agency or confinement centre Singapore parents like you are looking for, you should not dismiss the aspect of confinement care. Many parents only expect the nanny to take care of their newborn, disregarding the confinement part almost completely. The 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 as her focus would shift completely to her newborn. With a confinement nanny, the mother’s well-being and the newborn’s needs will be cared for.

When getting your own confinement lady, one of the most important things to prepare for your nanny is her own private room, or a shared room without any male adults in the same room. This is where she will rest, sleep, and change with complete privacy. For her to prepare your daily meals, please fill your kitchen with groceries for the first few days – you can have your spouse do this. If you need help grocery shopping for the upcoming weeks, our nannies will be happy to help. Also, depending on your requirements with your household arrangement, you may want to discuss a routine schedule and prepare a list of do’s and don’ts for her as well.

Aside from staying in a Singapore confinement centre, many parents have considered getting a confinement nanny but still wonder whether it is a necessity. How to know whether you really need one? You may need one if you are a first-time parent and are not getting extra help from any family member or other helper 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 having someone around who can take away or at least share the role with you is important. 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.

Instead of going to a confinement centre in Singapore, most parents view at-home confinement nannies as the greater value-for-money choice. Having an extra pair of helping hands around the house is most certainly advantageous. With a nanny by your side, you can get ample rest with more privacy in an environment that you’re familiar with. For some mothers here, getting a baby nanny service at home is precisely what makes their confinement easy and smooth. One tip to help you find a suitable confinement nanny is to look up confinement nanny review 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, you can approach them in different ways. While hiring a freelancer allows you to get to know them closely prior to working with them, and 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. On the contrary, a confinement nanny agency like PEM offers hassle-free booking by taking care of all of the above for you!

With a confinement nanny agency like PEM, there are undoubtedly more benefits for you as you are guaranteed the arrival of a nanny at your place and we are committed to ensuring that you get the best confinement nanny in Singapore. We also have a customer service team that you can contact to assist with your booking and any situation you are dealing with.

Meanwhile, with a freelance, if the nanny is suddenly not available to serve you and you are notified at the last minute, it can be much harder for you to find another confinement nanny.

This normally depends on the parents’ preference. You can let your nanny sleep in the same room as your baby and you (the mother) or she can sleep in a different room alone.

If you are comfortable with sleeping separately with your baby at night, then having your nanny and your baby stay in a different room would be a good option to help you sleep better.

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. In general, it is around $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. That said, even with the application process and extra charges, hiring a confinement nanny at home is still more affordable than going to a confinement centre.

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 is optimal as this will give every party involved 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 a home confinement, confinement centre or with a freelancer. Then from there, you can visit their website, call them up, or even 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 child care. Even if you are a mother yourself, your practices may not be preferred by other parents so it is important that you learn the best 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 as you will also be taking care of the mother and not just the baby alone.
