As a new mother, you get the energy and stamina to keep up with your newborn from nutritious, well-balanced meals. If you’re breastfeeding, then your newborn’s growth and development will also benefit from your diet of healthy food.

More importantly, a confinement food diet — a popular practice among Asians regardless of race — often contains the crucial herbs and remedies to promote postnatal healing. In traditional Chinese medicine, these dishes tend to include ingredients to help the body purge “wind”, enhance blood circulation and promote milk supply.

The trouble is, you’ll have your hands full with just bathing, changing and feeding your newborn round the clock! So, choosing a catering service can free up your time, so that you can focus your attention on playing with your cherub and recovering.

Nor do you need to commit to a provider right away as all these confinement meal services offer affordable trial meals. Scroll through our photo gallery to see our picks!
