Mount Elizabeth Hospital is a Baby-Friendly Hospital
Mount Elizabeth Hospital is on the list of Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative (BFHI) hospitals, accredited by the World Health Organisation – so they actively promote and support breastfeeding!
For a higher chance of successful breastfeeding, Mount Elizabeth Hospital makes sure to give you and your baby one hour of skin-to-skin contact immediately after giving birth. This helps to calm your baby down, keep them warm, stabilise their breathing, blood sugar and heart rate, and ultimately allow your baby to sleep better. This practice also takes advantage of the baby’s early alertness, to encourage them to naturally latch on to the breast. The hospital also encourages 24-hour rooming-in of mother and baby. This arrangement gives an opportunity for the mothers to learn how to identify their babies’ feeding cues and prepare parents for going home with their new babies. When baby is near you at all times, you’re encouraging baby-led feeding, which enables babies to get more immune-rich colostrum (the first milk produced by a mother’s breast during pregnancy) and enhanced protection from illnesses, as well as decreasing the likelihood of neonatal jaundice.
Fully Equipped Delivery Suites
Mount Elizabeth Hospital’s delivery suites are designed for optimal efficiency with your comfort and safety in mind. You’ll be well cared for in their fully equipped delivery suite (complete with a CTG monitor to linked to the nurses’ station measure contractions and both mama and baby’s heart rates) and you’ll have a number of pain relief options to choose from. Trained staff are also on the constant lookout to ensure you and baby are doing just fine.
Connected directly to the Operating Theatre (OT) and the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), this layout ensures a seamless operational flow to ensure the safety and care of both mother and child in cases of emergency.
