Confinement Lady/ Penjaga Pantang

Just another 12 weeks to go! Masya Allah..sekejapnya masa berlalu...

My 3rd Post Natal Wishlist Plan:
To confine in our home sweet home!(This wishlist had always been on top of everything since my 1st pregnancy, unfortunately it has(always?) been hijacked, as if like we have no say on any decisions..victim? mom & baby..hmmm (ignore this statement! mood swing!hahaha)

So, the plan is (assuming normal vaginal delivery):
Deliver baby at the hospital
- discharged & back to home sweet home 
- confinement lady (CL) reports duty on the 2nd/3rd day 
- hubby's off to work after 3 days PL 
- CL services until 14 days 
- 15th days onwards, InsyaAllah i'll be strong enough to take care of both baby & myself until the end of pantang
- confinement closure service by the CL 
- berAidilfitri with our new baby!

I've browsed through a few traditional Malay Confinement Services from the web and received a few contacts from friends too. In our list, so far:

We have yet to make any bookings so far, still looking for 'value for money' options. Seriously need help on CL contacts.. tolong recommend & share pengalaman ye kawan2 :-)) . 
We prefer Muslim CL, it's good enough if at least she can start every task with 'Bismillah..' :-))
And for those looking for traditional Malay confinement tips & confinement food recipes, this is a great book to refer to, Warisan Opah Umi.
