How To Choose The Perfect Confinement Centre

For new parents, choosing a confinement centre is a major decision, because this will be the place where mummy recovers after giving birth and takes care of her newborn baby. Here are some things you should take into account when choosing a confinement centre:

1. Facilities and amenities:

  • Make sure the environment is clean, hygienic and well-equipped with facilities such as comfortable bedrooms, bathrooms and nursery.
  • Check if the centre has air conditioning, proper ventilation, etc. to ensure a comfortable stay for mummy and baby.

2. Professional medical team:

  • Make sure that the confinement centre has qualified nursing staff and doctors who can provide the daily medical care needed by the mother and baby.
  • Check the professional background and experience of the care team, particularly in newborn care and postpartum recovery.

3. Diet and Nutrition:

  • Check if the dietary options provided by the confinement centre meet your preferences and nutritional requirements, especially those who require special care during postpartum recovery.
  • If you have special dietary needs or taboos, please inform the confinement centre in advance to ensure that they can provide customised menus and foods suitable for you.

4.Safety and Security:

  • Check if the confinement centre has the necessary safety measures in place to ensure the safety of mother and baby, including fire safety, CCTV surveillance, etc.
  • Go through the confinement centre's visitor policy and whether only authorised visitors are allowed into the centre.

5. Reviews and word-of-mouth:

  • Read reviews and feedback from other parents to get a feel for the confinement centre's reputation and customer satisfaction.
  • Talk to friends, family or other parents in your circle about their experiences to get helpful advice.

6. Expenses and Budget:

  • Find out the fee structure for the confinement centre, including fees for accommodation and additional services.
  • Check if the cost is in line with your budget, but don’t just consider price, but the quality and service as well.

7. Book in advance:

  • Places at confinement centres may be limited, especially during certain months, so it’s wise to book in advance.
  • Once the pregnancy is confirmed, start searching for a confinement centre and make reservations as early as possible to ensure that mummy has enough time to make a wise choice.

The most important thing is to choose a suitable confinement centre based on mummy's own needs and expectations, so that both you and your baby can receive the best care and support after delivery.
