Thomson Medical Centre continues top-notch maternal care services
It is the only private hospital in Singapore to offer other birthing options such as water birth.
Since 1979, private hospital Thomson Medical Centre (TMC) has partnered with countless mothers-to-be on their maternity journey, providing high-quality maternity care and a variety of prenatal and postnatal services to help them feel confident during this special time, and focus on the joy of welcoming a new life into the world.
TMC tailors its services to meet the individual preferences of each mother, recognising that each birthing experience is unique. It offers a myriad of birthing options and is the only private hospital in Singapore that offers water birth in addition to vaginal delivery and C-section.
Beyond traditional pain management such as epidural and laughing gas, TMC also offers natural pain relief options such as hypnobirthing and hydrotherapy. Its Delivery Suite is also equipped with exercise balls to alleviate contraction pains, and lavender-scented aromatherapy with soothing music upon request to help reduce anxiety during delivery.
TMC is one of the few private hospitals in Singapore with its operating theatre right next to the Delivery Suite by intentional design. Separated by only a door, the proximity to key clinical services prioritises the safety of all babies, especially in the event of an emergency, where every minute is crucial.
The medical centre also offers all mothers a variety of room options ranging from four-bedded rooms to luxurious suites post-delivery. Each room is air-conditioned, has an ensuite bathroom, and is equipped with a range of amenities to ensure a comfortable stay.
Similarly, TMC places emphasis on the nutritional needs of mothers to help them recover well and nurse their babies. Over the years, it has continued to serve healthy and nourishing meals curated by a team of lactation consultants, traditional Chinese medicine physicians and dieticians.
Patients can choose from a variety of Western and Asian meals that are supplemented with Thomson's signature dish to help them overcome fatigue and replenish their blood after delivery.
Moreover, TMC continuously innovates its nutrition proposition by partnering with gourmet food brands to enhance the freshness and quality of meals, and by preferably using local produce in its meals to ensure the nutritional benefits are passed on to patients.
Living up to its reputation as a speciality women and children’s hospital, as well as its dedication to ensuring quality maternal care, has been recognised by the Healthcare Asia Awards as the company took home the Specialty Hospital of the Year - Singapore category win.
The prestigious awards programme aims to honour hospitals, clinics and other healthcare providers that have risen above the challenges and made a remarkable impact by innovating and reinventing initiatives to better serve patients and protect employees.
