In Bali, babies under 3 months are considered holy and close to the sacred realm “Their spirits still belong to the divine and that’s why people in Bali always try to treat babies like gods”.

A big thank you to the Mandapa, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve for providing us this opportunity and making the arrangements possible.
Something all new expecting parents should do in preparation, attend an antenatal class! We did our Antenatal Class at Four Trimesters and it was a great experience, learnt so much and made some good friends. We were interviewed by Four Trimesters to tell our story and kind enough to share the footage with us, thank you! Is this the best Antenatal Class in Singapore, quite possibly, but for any new parent we highly recommend taking the time to do this course. Let us know what you think in the comments below!

Confinement Food, or Confinement Meals are an integral part of the recovery process in the traditional Asian 30 day confinement period where mums spend the time resting, recovering and nourishing their bodies through special meals. Confinement food isn’t easy to prepare and if you aren’t going to get a confinement nanny as we didn’t plan to, the alternative option would be to get your Confinement Food Delivered right to your doors. We trialed out 5 different companies in Singapore and give you our thoughts.
