    Hi Mich, i'm delivering mid-May also and I'd signed up a package with Babies Bellies (7days). dunno how they are in terms of massage but went to their shop before, not bad. am thinking of trying their pre-natal massage before i give birth. i think i trust those with a shop front better than freelancers.

    Hi Janice,

    So far I have only tried 2 places, this is the sites. For Ivy (compassvalemassage), she's chinese and she use to work for philip wain, so far I find her massage quite good. Price also reasonable.

    As for Javanese massage, I always visit the thomson branch, but just to let you know its quite unlikely for you to get the same person everytime.

    Grace,

    Yup, I think the price quite reasonable. I actually called in to check. their transport ranging from $5 to $10.

    The lady boss seems to be very friendly, I think maybe I will make a trip down to have a look.
  14. mich_liu82

    mich_liu82 Member

    Just to share,

    I visited Babies Bellies today. I tired the pre natal massage. Not bad for a start.

    Must comment the lady boss, she really very friendly. I signed up a 10 day package with them for post natal. So looking forward to it!

    mich,
    I am looking for a ML as well. How much it cost you for 10 days package that you have signed up? Mind to share?
    Thanks!

    mich_liu82 Member

    Hi yanqiu,

    My EDD is on 21st May.

    I'm not sure how their post natal is like, but Tiny M's fren tried and said not bad.

    And yesterday I was there to do my pre-natal.
    I had a chat with the lady boss, from what I see, though her company is new in the market but her therapists are not, her therapists are all very experienced with pre and post natal.

    Though the pre-natal on the ex side. But post natal, I really think its reasonable lor. Bcoz you see if its free-lance massage lady, also about the same price. Further theirs is company, so in a way must have service mah, if nt ruin the company's name how?

    You can visit their website and have a look. They can explain to you further. http://www.babiesbellies.com.sg/

    mich_liu82 Member

    Hi Audrey,

    For the 10 day package is $500. The lady boss explain to me depending on location, the transport varies but definitely within $5 to $10 per trip. So that means u might expect it to be $600 in total.

    Base on my scenario: my this 10 day package comes with free 1 body scrub and 1 steam bath. So she say better to at her spa.

    I will be paying $500 plus ($7(transport) x 8days). That means total I will pay $556 include transport.

    I will be giving 1 session to my hubby to do together at her spa, as her package is flexible.

    That means my 1 massage + body scrub + steam bath and giving 1 massage to my hubby all do at her spa.

    Urm, hope my explanation clear. I see until I oso abit blur.

    You may want to call her? or visit their website...

    hi *MiCh*,
    Thanks for sharing!
    Wow, that's reasonable. I have browse through the service and price from various sites this afternoon, some even hit $1200 for 10 sessions.

    There are so many massage services out there to compare and make me confuse too! [​IMG] Hopefully I am able to digest all the information before my baby pop out.

    Hi Audrey,
    Me also confuse to choose which massage lady to serve me for my postnatal massage till my CL lady recommend me Mdm Suriyah frm Malay Heritage Jamu Massage. She say that few of her clients was serve by her. And I agree with my CL as I feel more energetic and relax after my sessions. As my CL says that frm her experience that when some of her clients have their postnatal massage, the therapist either look not experience the way they do the massage or as young as 30yrs old. I feel very comfortable with Mdm Suriyah and when she heard my bb crying, she can know that its due to colics. She help me to massage my bb and my bb sleeps very well after the massage. I think we should get experience therapist to serve us during our confinement. Thank to my Cl lady.

    mich_liu82 Member

    Audrey,

    No worries!

    I saw the therapists this company has. And they assure me they will not get those young ones to serve. I dun think I have any worries. Because the lady boss also mother of 4. So should be fine.

    Dina, how come I always see you posting about Maly Heritage Jamu Massage only. I went thru all the threads regarding post natal in this forum to get better info b4 I take up any post natal. And looks like you everytime post the same thing in most of the threads. You sound like a fake customer of your own company just like Sue...

    Anyway, I have also done my own survey regarding post natal. This are all the sites I have visited. So far some prices I think quite ex bcoz since they are free lance, why still so ex? But of coz some are reasonable.

    My 2 cents worth. i should change this title of this thread to which post natal is recomended? Hehe

    http://www.scentuary.com/index.html

    These are some of the sites i came across. Perhaps you all just wanna go check out yourself...

    Sorry, I condemn origins jamu massage and malay heritage massage bcoz seems like alot of testi and comments posted in such a short while about this 2 companies after they were introduce to this forum so I just find it fishy and abit fake to be frank.

    :D

    Hi Mich,

    Can check, is this Ivy of compassvale massage good? I got a ML called Ivy for my #1, and not too good. Chinese lady, and 40+ and a bit cross-eyed... Thanks! :D

    mich_liu82 Member

    Hi Lil Jade,

    Her prices does not include transport. I find her quite good. The price reflected is to do the massage at her place.

    mich_liu82 Member

    Hi Shizuka gal,

    Hi Shizuka gal,

    I took up a 10 days post natal package with Babies Bellies. I went to try out their pre-natal the other day and even have a chat with the lady boss for very long.

    So after chatting, I find their company reliable and decided to go ahead with them and the lady boss assure me she will get someone to cater to my needs too.

    you can go check out their website http://www.babiesbellies.com.sg/2_pre---post-natal-massage_nfo

    capri_gal Member

    Hi Mich,

    Thanks! I'll be seeing my gynae in 2 weeks time then once he Ok it, I'll go book with Ivy. :D

    Oh, I was at Amore the other day (was shopping and curious so went in), the rate for prenatal massage is $98/hr!!!! and if package for 15x then can become $60+.. Geez!!!! So exp.. I had to fight to get ot of the consultant's claws!!!

    BTW, i know it may be unrelated, but is there any good recommendation for pre-natal yoga?? Thanks!
  39. mich_liu82

    mich_liu82 Member

    Hi Lil Jade,

    No prob! How lon is your pregnancy now? Normally ppl will recommend to go when you are 4 to 5 mths pregnant and above.

    Yup, I went to Amore b4. Their sales consultant will try their best to squeeze u dry but lucky both of us never fall into their trap. Its really ex, bcoz we pay for their advertising, rental etc...

    For pre natal yoga, I am not to sure den... Bcoz I never try it b4...B4 pregnancy, I use to do yoga once a while den I stopped...
  40. capri_gal

    capri_gal Member

    HI Mich,

    Thanks for your help! :D

    Hi all, if u are still looking, I would recommend my massage lady Milah. She lives in the East but travels to Woodlands and even Jurong West.

    My son is already 5 months but I am still engaging Milah to massage me once every month ($40 only).
    She goes on for 1-1.5 hour and sometimes goes beyond 2 hours if my body has more 'knots'. No extra overtime charge.

    Her fees for post-natal is $50 with tummy binding which I felt was good considering my tummy went down within 3 days.
    After the 1st session, she will see condition and advise if need to massage 3 or 5 days more. No need for package and no hard selling from her. Just pay her after each session. Always punctual and never stingy with her massages and advice.

    She doesn't chat on the hp during massage sessions. And also she doesn't burp loudly like some massage ladies do!

    Most importantly, she limits herself to 2 house calls per day to give full attention & strength to her clients. In that way, she is never in a rush to leave and able to give extra massage time if it is required.

    If u need her contact, do PM me directly as i do not check this thread often.
    Cheers!

    i have tried the babies bellies - pre natal massage

    very superficial one... no effect of relief tireness at all.disappointed...i actually end up more aching...maybe the posture we lie down while doing massage is uncomfortable.

    I pay for 69.90 for scrub & pre natal massage its state 90mins, but acual massage only last 1hr..
    for the service & standard i get the price of 69.90 is overprice.


    they seems to have only one massue only... very young & no experience kind.

    i wonder their post natal is good though?

    hope they pickup their skill... as the lady boss Ally is nice and give & share advise.
  44. mich_liu82

    mich_liu82 Member

    Flower,

    You can let the person know to use more strength. Its the young malay girl you use right? If its her, its the same as me. I told her to use more strength and I found it good for me. My massage is 1 hour but I had it for more then an hour!

    I dunno how come you face such unpleasant experience.
  45. flower4

    flower4 New Member

    Mich,
    til i tell the person wat to do , u mean i have to teach her how to massage me? i tot she the therapy not me wo..

    pre natal to destress tireness areas for preggie mummies mah. and they are suppose to be expert .

    anyway , they only have one & only malay massage girl anyway. no one else to choose. the rest are for post natal who go to home one...

    my massage last less then 1hr.. anybody else try babies bellies?

    Hi flower,
    prenatal massage should be done atleast after 6mth onward and it should be done by someone experience. A fren of mine went to a spa and she got shock to see a young girl abt 25yrs old to serve her for her prenatal and cancel her session at last. I dont mind to pay more to get someone experience rather than got problem after that. I had my prenatal done by Mdm Rokiah before and feel very comfortable with her. Lot of advise and she is very experience with her service. Even advise me to compress my leg always as I got bad cramps every nite and its really helps.
  47. mich_liu82

    mich_liu82 Member

    flower,

    Huh? Why u so work up? I didn't say you have to teach the person what to do... I just said if you needed more strength, jus tell her.

    Every place that I go for massage, its common for a customer to tell the massage person to add more strength if he or she finds that the strenth is not enough what. Even the massage lady also will ask what.

    Again, if you are not happy then why never complain to their boss instead of fuming over here?

    Huh? When I was there I saw a few ladies. Perhaps I was more lucky then you?

    Dunno leh. Yup, u sound quite angry.

    Complaint is jus a form of feedback so that the staff can improve what...

    Its like if you have a maid, she do wrong thing or she never do thing properly, then if you dun scold or feedback to her, will she ever improve?

    Hey MiCh, thanks for posting all those links, are you due yet ? I'm due end of this month, and thinking to get some 7 or 10 days package..

    I've got a friend who delivered last month, she recommended a freelance massage lady, in which she said already fully booked for this month, quite a popular one I guess..

    So with the time constraint, think I'll got to look for these places for the post-natal, I didn't go to any pre-natal, but I believed, to to either (pre and post natal) ones, should be someone experienced enuff.. so far, have you had any other feedback on the babies-bellies post-natal massage? I saw their booth in almost all baby talks/seminars and mother's expo in the past few months..
  52. mich_liu82

    mich_liu82 Member

    Ling,

    You're welcome...

    I dunno about it... But u gotta give them notice to book also... But I saw other forums got say they not bad. I oreadi booked but haven't tired yet.

    And also one of my friend's friend said she enjoyed the sessions. So I think should be ok bah...

    I talked to the lady boss b4 and she assured me she be gettin sum1 very experienced for me.

    Yup, they are at the expos booth...
