    I've bought valdera playpen all accessories for $200 from ezbuy but still waiting for it. I saw babygogo selling the same thing $299 for the playpen only, other accessories need additional charges.

    Hi March MTBs :)

    I’m from the Oct’17 group n delivered my first baby girl in Oct. My confinement nanny has a slot in Feb to early March (specifically 20/1-15/3) and asked me to check if any of my friends are looking for confinement help.

    She came highly recommended from my gf and was such a great help that we extended her. She’s very clean, proactive, gives gd advices and cooks really yummy meals and tonic soups. She cooks for me n hubby most days, n even taught my helper to cook Chinese food. She took care of my baby really well and established a routine for me leading to a smooth transition after her departure.

    I wanted a CL primarily to help me care for my baby while I recuperate, give me some tips on taking care of her, n cook yummy confinement food cos I’m such a fussy eater. I’m glad she exceeded my expectations in all aspects.

    If I have a second child, I’ll definitely engage her help again.

    I’m not gonna leave her number since she only has one slot in between her jan n march jobs. But do pm me if you have any questions or wld like to engage her help.

    Enjoy the last leg of pregnancy n wishing all mummies a smooth delivery :)

    Hi All,

    I have a really nice and good confinement lady to recommend. Anyone who is going to deliver after cny or march, can let me know so i can pass you her contacts.

    I got to know her from my Mum’s good friend as she has already helped a few of my Mum’s friends daughther to take care of th during their confinement and all give very good feedback so i try using her and it was really good.

    she is very experience and took very great care of my baby. She also helped my me slim down my tummy a lot with her secret recipe. Really thanks her so much.

    All the best to 2018 Mummies!

    Hi mummy!

    I have done post natal massage for both my pregnancy and I think it really helps. The first time I did jamu and the second time I tried TCM tuina by Madam Partum. Would highly recommend madam partum's massage which works on the basis of TCM! My uterus reduced back to normal size by the 5th session and their lactation massage helped me to unclog my blocked ducts without pain. Even saw an increase in my supply right after the first session! My therapist also addressed my spinal and shoulders issues. They can customise the massage to your health needs. Have heard many raving reviews about them before I decided to jump in to try instead of jamu beacause jamu didn't work that well for me. Lucky it didn't disappoint!

    Dear Mummies,

    Has anyone delivered vaginally baby that is 4kg and above? I am 37 weeks pregnant and baby's estimated weight is 3.2kg. On average baby puts on 300-400g a week. Doctor is suggesting to induce early to prevent baby from putting on more weight. However I have heard that induce may lead to a higher chance of C-sect delivery. Anyone faced similar situation?

    May I have Madam Partum contact? What is her charges?

    I gave birth vaginally to my boy at 3.94 kg at 40 weeks with the help of forceps. I've a friend who gave birth to her boy at 4.1 kg at 41-2 weeks. The birth experience was a little traumatic for me though.

    My second one is 3.2 kg at 35 weeks +. So my gynae also suggested inducing early at 38 weeks aft CNY. So I'm just going to follow his recommendations. We also discussed abt c-sect to reduce the chances of birth trauma for the baby. Just choose what is safest for baby n mummy. Jiayou!

    I think it depends on how ur body react to the induce med.

    I was induced at 38wks for my #1 due to my GDM and other medical condition, my dilation really took a while to kick start but it went well and i did not have a E C-sect.
    If the bb is too big then u risk injuring yourself and the baby during vaginal delivery.

    ckis17 New Member

    Hi Shinkirou, thanks for your advice. I just went for a visit yday and the doc was pissed when I refused to get induced. My hubby and I were taken aback with her professionalism. Currently at a loss, not sure if we can even change gynae at this stage. Thanks again!

    Hi sunflower307, thanks for the advice! 3 more weeks to go, feels like forever

    Hi. My gynae was also very concerned when I told him that I didn't want to induce over the CNY weekend cos we are really not mentally prepared for the baby's early arrival. In the end, after considering what happened during my first delivery, I decided to go for c-sect next week. Cos my baby is already 3.8 kg at 37 weeks. All the best for your delivery! It'll be good to discuss your concerns with your gynae again. I guess she has her concerns too when she recommended for you to be induced. Maybe the tone she used was too harsh. Most gynae will not take in new cases at such a late stage of pregnancy. Most importantly it must be someone you are comfortable with n can trust his/her judgement during the delivery process.

    Hi there, i’ve just went for my 20th week detailed scan and radiologist discovered my baby girl has ARSA too. My gyne suggested that i should go for amnio but i’m not sure whether if i should for it or not. I didn’t test for any DS cause i’m only 26 and no family history of DS. So another opt is to go for the harmony bloof test. For a peace of mind. Mind sharing ur experience
