Get your choice of confinement food in Singapore delivered to your doorstep with our list of Chinese, Western and Halal confinement meals!
Good nutrition is essential to your postpartum recovery. After all, regaining your strength, whether you delivered vaginally or via Caesarean section, is the best way to be the best mama possible to your bub. It can be hard to plan, shop for and cook your meals so they are nutritionally balanced while you are looking after a newborn, so why not invest in a confinement food delivery service instead! No matter how long your confinement period – 30 days in Chinese culture, 40 days in the Indian culture and 44 days in the Malay culture – hiring a service that provides confinement food in Singapore can really take the pressure off new mamas, so you can get all the nourishment you need (some confinement meals are even designed to help establish breastmilk supply!). Having this service will allow you to give your undivided attention to your new baby, as you adapt to the early days of motherhood. Wondering where to get confinement food delivery in all types of cuisine – Chinese, Japanese, Western and even halal confinement food? Consider these options for delicious confinement food in Singapore!
Tip: Consider putting a confinement food delivery service on your registry! That way, your friends and family can help gift you a truly useful (not to mention essential!) service once the baby comes.

Chinese, Japanese & Western Confinement Cuisine
This confinement food service in Singapore has teamed up with Red House Seafood to deliver warm, comforting, well-balanced meals made with premium ingredients that help promote recuperation to new mums – the dishes are breastfeeding-friendly too! We love the fact that their meals come neatly packed in sustainable containers in an easy-to-use food warmer; just plug it in and it warms your food – no cooking required! We tried this service and the meal actually arrived warm enough to eat immediately so we didn’t even need to heat it up! Maternity Angels has carried out rigorous research, tasting and consultations with Confinement Angels trainers, EMW Physiotherapy and TCM practitioners as well as dieticians, nutritionists, confinement agencies and restaurant chefs to deliver healthy hotel restaurant-quality Chinese, Japanese, Mediterranean and Western confinement meals to your door.
The food is prepared at Redhouse Kitchen, and everything is carefully prepared and packed directly from the wok upon cooking. Confinement meals are delivered at reasonable times for lunch (11am to 12:30pm) and dinner (5pm to 6:30pm) but of course, with the nifty food warmer you can heat and eat at whatever time suits you and your new bub! You can try out the confinement menu (before baby arrives!) for yourself – see the trial menu here. There’s a 14-day, 21-day and 28-day plan and each confinement meal includes a serving of meat or fish (like Grilled Miso Cod or Braised Pork Trotters with Black Vinegar), vegetables, a double-boiled soup (like Ao Broth Papaya Fish Soup), a carb staple plus at lunch you’ll get a dessert and for dinner an appetiser. It’s a bit like dining out, in the comfort of your home every day during your confinement!

Don’t be alarmed by the feisty name – Chilli Padi Confinement doesn’t actually include chilis in their food! On the contrary, the confinement food caterer offers wholesome, palatable dishes for postpartum mamas. Chilli Padi first started out as a restaurant serving Peranakan cuisine and began offering confinement meals when they received a positive response after introducing those dishes to customers. Their specially crafted meals promote lactation, using plenty of breast milk-boosting ingredients such as salmon, papaya, spinach and turmeric.

Sizzling Dyyana comes highly recommended by celebrity mums, and we can confirm her halal confinement food delivery in Singapore lives up to the hype (NB: I booked her for my pantang period! – Syazana). Kak Dyy, as her customers call her, offers a mixed menu of Malay, Chinese and Western confinement dishes which change daily. This is because she does all the grocery hunting herself in the wee hours every morning, grabbing anything fresh and organic that catches her eye. We love that she sends messages via WhatsApp every morning detailing what customers will receive for the day, along with each dish’s nutritional benefits. Thirst-quenching drinks and teatime snacks such as lactation cookies, muffins and scones are often included.
