    english-speaking confinement lady

    Hello everyone, I'm 29 weeks pregnant with twins, and I'm looking for an experienced maternity nurse or confinement lady to help me out. I don't speak or read chinese. Can anyone recommend a confinement lady who can speak basic English? Or an experienced nanny based in HK?

    Not sure about nannies, but almost all Chinese confinement ladies don't speak English at all. I am 15 weeks and just got one booked - like everything else in HK, I was told to start looking and interviewing 5-6 months before the due date. I am thinking to hire a domestic helper who has experience with newborns instead of a nanny after the confinement lady finishes. Sorry not being of much help here.

    the one I used was awesome in terms of knowledge, passion and care for both mum and newborn baby. You'd have to contact her directly for her English level/timing/location to see if you both match one another's expectation. PM me your number and will pass to her.

    The one I'm using is local but speaks English enough to communicate with my helper and teach her things like cooking and bathing babies. Lemme know if ure interested in speaking to her.
