Private Maternity Hospitals in Singapore
1. Thomson Medical Centre
Thomson Medical has been a popular pick amongst parents, with over 40 years of experience in helping mothers deliver. They deliver approximately 8,000 babies a year and is the only private hospital in Singapore that has water birthing facilities. Through our first pregnancy, what we appreciated about Thomson is that they are less crowded as compared to public hospitals, as well as their signature services – Thomson Signature 8. We’re definitely looking forward to the signature fish & papaya soup which helps with increasing milk supply, and the longan & red date tea for post-delivery.
Each of Thomson Medical’s maternity rooms is specially designed to deliver the comfort and ambience of a resort, allowing you to focus on relaxation and recovery during and after your pregnancy. The Thomson Family Suite provides the most luxurious accommodation option, with a dedicated team of staff attentive to your every need, a separate living room area for your family members, complimentary first companion accommodation with meals, and more. You can also choose from their varying suites, single-bedded, two-bedded, and four-bedded options.
What we love about Thomson Medical is that they essentially provide every service relating to your pregnancy. Prior to the birth of your child, they provide childbirth education classes, equipping parents with the necessary knowledge to take care of their little ones. Post-pregnancy, they provide confinement nannies, confinement food home delivery, and even 28-Day Confinement Herbal Care to help boost mothers’ overall wellness after delivery. There are simply too many services for us to cover, so check out their comprehensive range of services here.
They also offer a useful 2-year Maternity Membership Programme which allows mothers to enjoy member rates from prenatal scans to their child’s follow-up visits.
