Delivery Suite

 

With 28 private delivery rooms, our Delivery Suite witnesses the births of 30 - 35 babies every day.

Each room comes with a single bed, attached bathroom with shower facilities, couch-bed, and a telephone to keep anxious family members updated on the baby's arrival.

The nurses, all experienced midwives, work closely with the obstetricians, anaesthetists, neonatologists and physicians to help mothers through their deliveries.

Another important partner in the entire experience is none other than the father-to-be. We encourage the husband or significant other to provide moral support to the mother.

Nursery

Babies who are well and who do not require special medical attention can stay with their mothers in the obstetric (maternity) ward.

"Rooming-in" helps parents to bond with their newborn babies and learn baby's habits, likes and dislikes. More importantly, it provides a good opportunity for parents to learn how to care for the baby, so that they can tap on the vast experience of the hospital's nurses while still in their care at the hospital.

Every obstetric ward has a Nursery, where specially trained nurses care for the baby. A team of doctors monitor the baby's health each day.

The Nursery is most suited for babies who need regular monitoring by the medical team, and babies whose mothers may not be able to care for them (e.g. immediately after a caesarean section).

Automated Auditory Brainstem Response (AABR) Test

Before being discharged from the hospital, the baby undergoes a hearing test - the Automated Auditory Brainstem Response (AABR) test. This test helps to detect hearing loss at birth to facilitate early intervention and treatment.

Safe and painless for the baby, it involves applying jelly tab sensors to the head, which allow a computer to receive and record the baby's response to sound. A soft earphone delivering clicking sounds will elicit response from the baby.

Obstetric Day Assessment Centre

Our Obstetric Day Assessment Centre has evolved into an outpatient alternative for women with complicated pregnancies and pregnant patients with hypertension and/or diabetes.

These patients would previously have required hospitalisation. Now they receive the same high standard of obstetric care while enjoying the benefits of an outpatient status, such as no hospitalisation costs and reduced disruption to their work, family and social lives. Hypertensive and Diabetic obstetric patients now receive an extensive evaluation and self-help management guidelines.

Dedicated nurses will also provide phone consultations and phone reviews to assist patients in managing their diabetes in pregnancy.
