Every mother who gives birth is expected to go through confinement. For most, hiring a confinement lady is a relief. But I heard unpleasant stories about hiring one whom we do not know.
This is why I never hired a confinement lady during my first two pregnancies and even for my third. I also do not like any stranger with us.
After the birth of my first child, my husband and I were able to cope with confinement without hiring a confinement lady or asking family members to help because my husband was able to go on leave from work and he was working in shifts.
After my second child, we asked my mother and my sister to help out in taking care of my children especially my eldest child and in doing the household chores.
Now that I’m expecting my third child in less than two months, I am already thinking of what to do during my confinement. My husband and I do not intend to get a confinement lady and we will still plan things as before so as to save on the expenses.
So, if you’re wondering how you can undergo confinement without having to spend much money in hiring a confinement lady, here are some ways.
