In this article, I will be sharing the 4 best confinement nanny agencies for you to consider.
Besides taking care of the new mother and newborn during the confinement, the nanny also helps with simple household chores such as laundry or grocery shopping.
Other services such as cooking meals for the entire family may be requested at an extra cost.
Things to consider when choosing a confinement nanny
- Find out which agency best works to suit your needs. Your nanny should ease your burden and not add to it.
- Book your nanny at least five or six months before your expected delivery date.
- Can be trusted.
- Have the right attitude, who is humble and willing to take instructions.
- Check whether your nanny hired is reputable and MOM certified.
- You have a helper or a family around to support you?
If you have a helper during the day, maybe you only need your nanny at night. If you don’t have a family to support you or your helper does not have experience with a newborn baby, you will need your nanny with you round the clock.

Tips for you as a new mother during the confinement period
Take plenty of rest in bed.
Hire a confinement nanny.
Do not rush to get up immediately. This causes low blood pressure due to posture.
Be careful with your diet, home environment and genital care.
Bathe or rinse quickly with traditional herbs.
This helps with blood circulation, removes wind from the body and prevents transmission of infection to your newborn.
Shower regularly with warm water especially when breastfeeding and in close contact with your newborn.
Consume more fish, apples and spinach.
Avoid certain fishes like catfish and stingrays.
Abstain from coffee.
Drink warm water instead of cold.
Sit when you drink.
Bond with your baby.
Avoid vigorous exercising during confinement for at least two months after a normal delivery and for at least four months after a C-section.
I hope one of these confinement nanny agencies will be able to help you during your confinement.
