This service is available for All New Mothers who are interested in exploring this thousand-year-old Chinese tradition. The sit month / post-partum nanny helps to nurse the child for the first thirty days while the mother rests and recuperates. In this process, new mothers are instructed to undergo a process known as — zuo yue zi, or “sitting the month” – a thirty-day period of bed rest designed to help new moms recover from the arduous process of childbirth. While the process has been subject to some controversy, this cultural practice has been adapted to suit the needs of the new moms of the 21st century - without all the stringent rules and drawbacks, while still bearing all the benefits.
Sitting the month traditionally has many restrictive and unrelenting rules which means the mothers must be confined to a single room, and cannot wash for thirty days, instead being wrapped in warm clothes and allowed to drink only hot water, while being subject to a strict diet. While this might sound like too much, there are many holistic benefits associated to such a ritual.
In LA, My Asian Nanny wants to give Moms, the benefits of 30 days of doing nothing but resting, snuggling with their new baby, eating healthy foods and recovering from the rigours of pregnancy before they have to re-enter society, and take up their busy lives and schedules. In order to accomplish this, Newborn Care Specialists would be in the house at all times, supporting new mothers and taking on their other roles and responsibilities around the house, enabling them to rest as much as possible.
A spokesperson for My Asian Nanny explained, “My Asian Nanny is offering a new postpartum service that allows mothers to benefit from Sitting the Month in the way they see fit. Our agency recruit’s specialist nannies for these jobs, and refers only the most highly experienced and dedicated sit-month nannies available.
