If you need to know the various help offered for individuals and families in social and financial need, you can access
- The Right Ob/Gyn
Medical care is so advanced in Singapore, but finding the exact right ob/gyn for you might not still be the easiest thing to do. Iyou are a private patient and your ob/gyn orders lots of examinations during a normal pregnancy in Singapore, they might not be the right person. Therefore, ask other mothers for personal recommendations.When you “shop around” for doctors, also make sure that they favor the kind of delivery you are most comfortable with. Some pregnant women want plenty of medical interventions, pain relief, or scheduled caesareans. Others prefer a natural birth for their baby. If you are among the latter, you should make enquiries with Thomson Medical Centre in particular. Generally speaking, it also helps to visit several maternity wards your doctor is affiliated with, e.g. at KK Women’s & Children’s Hospital in the public sector, or at private clinics like Mount Elizabeth or Gleneagles Hospital.
- Preparing for Birth
When you have chosen a hospital and the due date is there, don’t forget to prepare your maternity kit. You should have the following things at hand before welcoming your new baby in Singapore: your birth plan for the delivery, comfy clothes (including disposable underwear), toiletries (especially sanitary napkins and nipple cream), some light snacks, as well as baby-care items (diapers, wet wipes, clothing for newborns). These can be easily obtained from shopping malls in Singapore, supermarkets or health stores like Guardian’s or Watsons’. Don’t forget to look out for discounts or coupons that can help you save a bundle!
