Staying in the Ward

What Can I Expect?

Ward 53A has 34 beds comprising of 1-bed, 4-beds and 5-beds rooms.

We are a BFHI (Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative) accredited centre and will encourage mother and infant bonding by*

  • Skin-to-skin contact for an hour immediately after delivery
  • Allowing baby to initiate the first latch in this hour
  • Transferring mother and baby together to the postnatal ward

*These steps may vary depending on the condition of the mother and baby

Our lactation consultants and nurses will visit you in the ward after delivery to assist you with latching and other breastfeeding issues. Rooming in with your baby is also encouraged to help bonding, faciliate breastfeeding and enable you and your partner to gain confidence in responding to your baby's cues.

Infant bathing will be carried out by your bedside and our experienced neonatal nurses can guide you in giving your baby his or her first bath.

Our physiotherapists will teach you useful postnatal exercises to help in the recovery of your pelvic floor and abdominal muscles.

We also have a tasty and nutritious confinement menu to aid you in your post-natal recovery.
