Preparation is key on your journey to parenthood

We know that, although the prospect of becoming a parent is exciting, it can also be a time of uncertainty and anxiety. This is why it’s important to prepare thoroughly for the birth of your baby and the new responsibilities that come with being a parent.

We encourage you as expectant parents to attend antenatal classes and participate fully in developing a birthing plan that suits your needs — from the type of birth, to who will support you during delivery, and the type of accommodation you’d prefer.

Secure facilities and advanced technology for the best and safest care

We strive to create a tranquil and supportive environment in our maternity units which are fully secured to ensure you and your baby’s safety.

Our modern facilities incorporate various accommodation options to suit your specific needs. These include private en-suite rooms and semi-private rooms, where your baby will room in with you. We encourage you to arrange a visit, prior to your due date, to the maternity unit where you plan to give birth to meet the staff and view the facilities.
