In the beginning…
The Confinement Tradition
Traditionally, the Chinese have given mothers 30 to 40 days to recover in what is called "sitting the month”. New mothers spend the first 30 days after childbirth doing little more than sleeping, receiving special treats and getting used to their new role in life both physically and psychologically. There could be wisdom in this practice. Many complications can arise if the new mother does not take care of herself during this period.
After childbirth,a woman is believed to be depleted of her Yang energy and be in the state of “blood deficiency”.So she has to consume more ‘hot’ (Yang) foods to restore her ‘cold’ (Yin) bodily state. Yin and Yang affect and control each other,according to Chinese philosophy.Good health means the proportions of Yin and Yang are relatively balanced.These types of food is known as the confinement food.
Women who have just given birth need plenty of rest and good nutrition food. Moreover a new mother needs to be healthy in order to look after her newborn baby.
Thus sourcing for a good confinement nanny to help new mother during this confinement period is an investment worth considering.
There is an ancient Chinese saying:”Women after childbirth if confinement period well done,your troubles thereafter are none.”
Our founder, Amy, had a tough childbirth in 1994. In which, she realized the importance of proper recovery for mothers in the days after childbirth. At the same time, the baby must be cared for as well. Hence, after setting on a journey to understand more about the confinement tradition and the best methods to care for a new born, Amy founded AmyNanny Confinement Nanny Services in 2004. Today, she continues to impart her knowledge and methods to all her nannies, ensuring the best care for both mummy and baby. Many of our mummies and babies still keep in touch with us even after the confinement period. Here at AmyNanny, we strive not only to provide an excellent service to both mummy and baby, but a friendship that will last a lifetime.
