If you have been searching and reading about confinement planning, then chances are, you already have a general understanding of the role of confinement food in a mother’s postpartum period. But just in case you need a reminder, here are some of the main benefits of having confinement food:
What are the benefits of having confinement food?
- Promote Postpartum Recovery: Food ingredients that are commonly used in confinement food, such as pork, offals, fish, chicken, dark leafy greens, red dates, Chinese herbs, are rich in essential nutrients that support your postpartum recovery. This includes physical recovery like wound recovery around the caesarean or genital area, as well as mental recovery like helping to improve your mood and lower risks of postpartum depression.
- Support Breastfeeding: Certain confinement dishes contain lactogenic (milk-boosting) ingredients that can help increase your breast milk supply. At Tian Wei Signature, our fusion and traditional confinement food also contains nutritious ingredients that can help improve the nutritional content in your breast milk, and support the development of your newborn through breast milk.

Commonly Asked Questions
What is included in each meal set?

What is your meal packaging like?

Is your confinement food suitable for mothers who go through vaginal
birth and C-section?
Yes, you can rest assured that all meals are planned with our dietitian, with benefits for mothers who go through vaginal birth and C-section in mind. Regardless of the delivery method, during confinement, you need a healthy and balanced meal with adequate protein, vegetables and whole grains, which is what we provide at Tian Wei Signature. Also, we incorporate lactogenic ingredients in our confinement meals to help you increase breast milk supply.
Are your fusion dishes suitable to consume during confinement?
Yes, along with our traditional dishes, all of our fusion dishes are also carefully reviewed by our chef and dietitian to include ingredients that help you with recovery and breastfeeding.
For our fusion dishes, we use traditional confinement food ingredients prepared in fusion Japanese and Mediterranean style to keep your confinement food experience nutritious and interesting.
What if I don’t consume certain ingredients on your menu?
No worries! We can leave out any ingredients that you prefer not to have upon request. However, we highly recommend you to have all the ingredients that we serve, as our menu is planned with our dietitian to be well-balanced and help you in recovery and breastfeeding.
For example, we use ingredients like offal and fish to ensure you get enough iron, vitamin A and omega 3 to speed up your wound healing, which other types of protein (a.k.a. meat) may not provide as much, so avoiding certain ingredients may reduce your intake of these essential nutrients.
Are your confinement meals suitable for post-miscarriage recovery?
Yes, our dietitian-guided confinement food can help you with your recovery in the following ways:
- • Miscarriage can cause heavy bleeding up to two weeks. Our confinement meals are rich in nutrients such as Iron, Vitamin B12, Folate and protein to replenish blood.
- • As you might not be moving as much, our menu also helps prevent constipation to promote wound healing. We serve a variety of vegetables, whole grains and soups to help keep your fibre and liquid intake in check.
- • You can leave out ingredients based on your needs and preferences, such as lactation ingredients and certain herbal soups.
When is the delivery time?
Lunch will be delivered between 10a.m. to 1p.m., and dinner will be delivered between 4p.m. to 7p.m.
Do I need to pay any delivery fees?
No, all of our confinement food package prices are nett prices, so you don’t have to pay any additional delivery fees. That said, do take note that there will be a charge of $4 per trip for all delivery to the CBD area.
