    Wonderful English speaking local Pui Yuet (Confinement helper)

    Hello,

    I've had a wonderful experience with a local Pui Yuet this past month, and I wanted to share the information in case other expats were interested. My husband and I decided to hire a part-time Pui Yuet to help after the arrival of our first child because we do not have a domestic helper or family in town. I had also heard at a lot about the cultural tradition of confinement and was interested in trying the traditional Chinese post-natal food.

    We were lucky to find Liza, who is fluent in English, through the Smart Baby Care Scheme. As it is a government program, there were no added agency fees. She has taken courses in cooking traditional Chinese food and caring for newborns. Liza is a great cook, and if not for her, my husband and I would have been eating nothing but take-out food for the last month. It was great to have a healthy and delicious meal prepared for us every day.

    Her main job as a Pui Yuet was to make sure I was well fed and rested so that I could breastfeed and care for the baby. However, she also helped with nappy changes, burping, sterilizing, and comforting the baby when I needed a break and made sure I got a nap each day. Liza was very flexible and understanding that as Westerner there were some traditions I wasn't going to follow (i.e. not washing hair, staying confined to the apt).

    I am thankful that I had the extra help for the first month with my newborn. I think having a Pui Yuet is a great option for people who don't have a full-time live in helper. If anyone wants more info please feel free to message me.

    Jess
