Confinement Nanny Slammed for Taking Up 4 Different Jobs Whereby All Babies Are Due in the Same Month

As time is of essence at work, the ability to multi-task is very much needed to complete all the things on your to-do list.

For those who are super apt at multi-tasking, they can be eating, talking on the phone and replying emails at the same time.

In the case of a particular confinement nanny, multi-tasking was at its best when she took up four assignments in the same month.

Confinement Nanny Allegedly Took on Four Assignments in November

In July 2020, Ms Zheng contacted a confinement nanny whom she found through a Facebook group.

The confinement nanny shared with Ms Zheng photos of her with other babies she had taken care of in the past, as well as pictures of the confinement meals she had prepared for her other clients.

As the confinement nanny seemed rather experienced, and the confinement meals she has whipped up were to her liking, Ms Zheng then agreed to engage the services of the nanny.

The nanny was to care for Ms Zheng when the baby is due in November.

The confinement nanny then quoted a fee of $3,200, and requested for Ms Zheng to pay for a $600 deposit first.

A few days after Ms Zheng had made the deposit payment, the confinement nanny asked if she would like to purchase the ingredients required for the confinement meals, which costs $118.

Ms Zheng agreed to the nanny’s additional request and made payment.

After finalising the arrangements, Ms Zheng thought things were settled.

However, things took a turn when she chanced upon a Facebook post about the confinement nanny in October.

Another Confinement Nanny Covered Duties for Five Days & Did Not Receive Payment

Another confinement nanny, Ms Hu, mentioned that she covered the nanny’s duties for five days on 28 September. She has yet to receive the payment of $500 for her replacement duties.

In addition, Ms Hu mentioned that the nanny had also accepted the deposit of three other expectant mothers, who are also due in November.

Mr Zhong, the husband of one of the three expectant mothers, mentioned that the nanny accepted a deposit of $960 in August.

However, in October, the nanny told the couple that she was unwell, and that someone else will replace her as their confinement nanny in November.

Ms Chen, who paid a deposit of $660 said that the lady agreed to all four mothers’ requests to be their confinement nanny. She questioned the feasibility of the lady’s ability to attend to all four mothers’ in the same month.

When Ms Chen approached the nanny to ask for her deposit to be given back, the nanny claimed that she was framed by other confinement nannies. She also mentioned that she had spent all the money.

Ms Chen had received $50 back from the nanny.

Sensing that something was amiss, three of the expectant mothers lodged a police report.

Investigations are currently ongoing.

Nanny Alleged to be a Hawker Store Assistant

According to Lianhe Wanbao, the nanny is alleged to an assistant at a zi char store. It was also mentioned that the nanny was selling medicinal herbs as her side line.

When contacted by Lianhe Wanbao, the lady said that she had been misunderstood, and denied all allegations.

She added that she hasn’t been sleeping well due to the stress from this incident, and has reported the matter to the police.
