Confinement lady found

Thursday, December 21, 2006 8:00 pm at 8:00 pm 14 comments

I finally found a confinement lady (CL) who was recommended by my midwife. I nearly gave up getting one after making so many calls and finding them all unavailable. My backup option was to call my MIL to help me keep an eye on Brae for the whole confinement period (which I really do not wish to do as I do not want to trouble her).

A week back, I received an SMS from my midwife telling me she had a client who had a CL which was quite good. I called the number she gave me and was expecting the usual reply “Sorry, I am not available”. To my surprise, she agreed to be my CL but she won’t be able to help me for the first few days due to a clash in timetable. Therefore, she suggested to get her friend to help me before she takes over after she is done with her other confinement job.

She told me the charges were double because of CNY, I nearly fainted when I heard the price – RM4288 and I wondered whether it is the standard price charged. I told her that if I would only require her services for 3 weeks so she dropped her price to RM2800.

We met her on Tuesday to discuss about the details. From the conversation, we found her to be quite okay.

Hope that I won’t be having a tough time with her. *cross fingers*

    I have a very good confinement lady. She takes very good care of my baby and me during my confinement. She is very clean and cooks for my hubby and mum in law as well. Anyone looking for a good confinement lady, I will recommend Mdm Sie. 016-4946303. She speaks Mandarin and Hokkien.
