PEM Confinement Nanny Agency Reviews

Other than preparing nourishing confinement food and caring for your newborn at night to give you some respite, the nannies at PEM confinement nanny agency can also go grocery shopping and do laundry for the entire family. In addition, PEM nannies are trained by an in-house certified lactation consultant on proper latching methods and various breastfeeding positions, so they’ll be able to dole out helpful advice if you have issues breastfeeding.

In fact, PEM is rather popular among the mummies! So once I found out that PEM existed, I never look back at engaging private CN again.

I have earlier shared on the reasons why I decided to engage a confinement nanny from PEM Confinement Nanny Agency. Now that I have ended my confinement and looking back at those 28 days, I must say that I am really thankful that I did so as it is extremely important to rest well and to ensure that baby is taken care of by someone experienced!

Popular in the sense whenever Mummies talked about confinement nanny agencies, most would first bring up the name PEM. So at that point I thought it was a safe choice since they're really well known & reputable.

"Being parents for the first time, We are grateful to have Aunty Maryin Heng 1273 with us during this one month. She's not only a fantastic cook, she also sacrifices her sleep to take care of all the night feed. We are really thankful to have her with us during this confinement period."

We feel completely at ease when babies is in her good hands. She is also generous to share baby care tips with us and offers advices on confinement practices.
