Located in KL, the folks at First Month Confinement Retreat Center take great pride in providing new mums with the best start to motherhood possible by offering nutritious meals, a quality environment as well as support and care during the most fragile first few weeks of postpartum.
They understand that not all modern mums find it ideal to deal with traditional confinement at home due to a variety of reasons (i.e. lack of knowledge, lack of home space, etc.). That’s why they are passionate about providing the right support; it’s all to give new mums the best opportunity to recuperate, rest and bond with her baby.
At First Month, they are a family-run center who are also strong believers in the value of Chinese herbal food to nourish our physical health and wellbeing, having spent many years in research, development and trade in this industry across the country.

My first life-time confinement experience was great and wonderful with Bliss Confinement Centre. Both baby and I [were comfortable] throughout the period. Food was extremely ranged as 5 star ranking, the TCM was an amazing woman and all the workers were pretty nice and friendly. Kudos to Bliss.
Everything was great. From the room service, 5 meals a day, friendly nurses who help to take care of baby during the day and night time. Traditional Chinese Medicine for my wife and even the bird’s nest, I did try for a few bites too 🙂 […] Yes confinement center cost a bit more but sure worth it for their full package and your partner gets to rest well after baby’s delivery. Appreciated and recommended.
There we have it! We hoped this little list was helpful to you. Clearly, which confinement centre you choose will be one of the most important decisions you’ll make for the early weeks after your delivery. Now more than ever when your family support system may be states away and your partner needs to work.
