Some mums consider confinement to be old-fashioned and opt to not follow the more restrictive practices. Yet, many do still observe confinement as they welcome the enforced rest built into this tradition. Whatever your options, do what is comfortable and makes sense to you.

Breastfeeding can be a daunting task to new moms. Thankfully, our experienced breastfeeding counsellors are here to help you establish successful breastfeeding so that you can give your baby the best food and enjoy this special relationship with your precious one. We also encourage parents to attend a breastfeeding class to have some knowledge before baby arrives.
The truth: The key here is moderation. The new mother should do what makes her comfortable. In a hot and humid climate, fans and air conditioners may even be essential for preventing heat rash. However, the new mother should not let the fan or air-conditioner blow directly on her.
The truth: Breastmilk contains all the water a baby needs.
The truth: Reasonable alcohol intake should not be discouraged at all. As is the case with most drugs, very little alcohol comes out in the milk. The mother can take some alcohol and continue breastfeeding as she normally does. Prohibiting alcohol is another way we make life unnecessarily restrictive for nursing mothers.
The truth: The confinement period is a time when physical changes that occurred in the last nine months will revert to the original state. It is also a period when the nutritional demands on you are high, owing to the recent blood loss from the delivery and the demands of breastfeeding.
The belief here is that the mother has been “cooled” by the delivery, and there is a need to eat “heating” foods such as meat. Many “confinement foods” have been devised to ensure that these nutritional demands and beliefs are met. Whatever your beliefs are, it is important to have a well-balanced diet rather than specific food types to replenish the body’s stores. This is especially so during breastfeeding. If necessary, as in the case of vegetarians or vegans, iron or vitamin supplements may be taken to satisfy these nutritional demands.
Giving birth is never easy, but for new mothers the month following a baby’s arrival is particularly fraught. Kimporo, which means “The Most Precious One” in Chinese, refers not only to the precious newborn, but also the precious new mother. Be prepared to be pampered at Kimporo, where your new life begins…
The truth: The vast majority of women produce more than enough milk. Indeed, an overabundance of milk is common. Most babies that gain too slowly, or lose weight, do so not because the mother does not have enough milk, but because the baby does not get the milk that the mother has. The usual reason that the baby does not get the milk that is available is that he is poorly latched onto the breast. This is why it is so important that the mother be shown, on the first day, how to latch a baby on properly, by someone who knows what she is doing.
Confinement practices are traditional postnatal practices aimed at helping a new mum recover from the rigours of pregnancy, labour and birth. Mum and baby are said to be in confinement because they are effectively "quarantined" at home. Traditionally, they do not receive visitors apart from close family members until the confinement period is over.
We have a variety of fun and educational activities, such as yoga, infant care courses, parenting courses, healthy cooking demo, etc. to make your confinement as enjoyable and productive as possible.
