Your new-born baby will give you great emotional satisfaction. Looking after your baby is joyful yet tiring ! Your body will go through many changes during pregnancy and it will take a while to return to its pre-pregnancy condition. Also, you may not be experienced or having the confidence in taking care of a new-born baby, particularly for a first-time mother.
You will need someone with post-natal care experience in your house to help out in the first month after delivery – the confinement period. A confinement nanny will be able to help you with this.
A confinement nanny is usually between 45 and 55 year’s old, and experienced in taking care of a new mother and new-born baby.
