Confinement Center or Confinement Lady?

This is a common question for all mommies, confinement center or confinement lady ?

Confinement after giving birth is a common practice in Malaysia, and there are 2 ways that Malaysian families practice : a center or a confinement lady. I have experienced both, let me share my two cents here.

If you are considering the confinement center, first ask yourself the questions below , if your answer is a YES to all of the below, confinement center will be a good choice for you.

  1. sufficient budget allocation
  2. you have more than 1 child
  3. you have no helper at home
  4. you do not have extra room for the confinement lady

Consideration on choosing a confinement center

I chose Esther Post Partum Care for my confinement during MCO 2021, here are my reasons (and possibly be yours) :

1.Taiwanese Confinement Diet from Quisine 蕴后膳

I love Taiwanese cuisine very much, I don’t quite prefer the westernized meals. At Esther Post Partum Care, they have dieticians, nutritionists and doctors all work together to ensure moms have a proper diet made from appropriate ingredients. The food diet is important to provide essential nutrition that ensure the quality of breast milk and it would affect the health of your baby.

2. Care around the clock

At Esther Post Partum Care , mothers get to rest as much as they can and focus on recovering because there are nurses on call shift to take care of your babies.
