From pregnancy to delivery, the natural transformative changes in a woman’s body is miraculous. It changes the physical body, hormone levels and even emotions. Re-nourishing, reshaping and restoring the women’s body postpartum for a full recovery is our mission. 


At MotherlyCare, we infuse effective, traditional Asian postpartum care methodologies (Pui Yuet 陪月, Yue Zi 月子, Sitting the Month 坐月, Postpartum Confinement or Doula) with modern health & wellness thinking.


We leverage Chinese herbs alongside fresh, high-protein ingredients for nourishing meals. We adopt wellness techniques like BengKung postpartum belly-binding, rooted in Southeast Asian traditions, to help re-stabilize the physical body.

We aim to bring you insights on such traditions, nourishing-for-women recipes and helpful baby & mommy survival tips.

Starting a new family should be a worry-free and magical experience. Let us partner with you to make that happen.
