Tanamera Postnatal Care Set


Assalamualaikum,

As most of you might know i'm currently in my third trimester of my pregnancy. To date i'll be exactly 38 weeks tomorrow, so i'm just basically waiting for the time for baby to arrive. Emergency bag, baby's bag, labour bag & another bag to store hot flask, mug, drinks and biscuits while i'm admitted are already inside our car.

Not too sure whether i've mentioned which product i'll be using during my confinement, anyway i've decided to choose Tanamera, since they've been having good repo and testimonials from their customers. Not forgetting Dynaz Mokhtar (i hope i got her name right), a local Malaysian actress, even she used this 'set pantang' when she was on confinement. Well for me it's not whether a celebrity have used a certain product and endorse it, what's more important is the product and it's content and what benefit does it give to both us mum's and baby. My little girl actually had jaundice when she was a baby, so based on experience nurses will normally tell us not to take any 'jamu' or heaty things like kunyit and ginger. So i literally had to take Ginger out of my pantang diet. 

Ok so let's get into this Tanamera Postnatal Care set, since i've been getting a lot of request on what's inside and all. This post will be more on the product and it's functions, as i'm unable to review it as at yet. So shall we start....



Alhamdulillah i receive this on Tuesday and it's a huge medium size box, jam pack with 11 products in total.


See, now do you believe when i said jam packed????


A thorough booklet on the items in the Tanamera Postnatal Care Set, from introduction to benefits, and instructions. And they have it in both English and Bahasa.
